PLB's vs SPOT/SEND devices

Hey Team,

Due to recent events I have questioned the emergency reliability of the SPOT devices and after communicating with the Rescue Team and reading what is available on the internet I have come to the following conclusion.

In an emergency (as in I need a helicopter now) a dedicated PLB is the only way to go.

Please read the review/explanation below and consider your options. Im happy to discuss further if you wish.
