Craigm1, load your pic on an online server...mine is on FB. Copy the URL, and then you can see at the top of your reply box there is a little picture...it says "insert image" when you scroll over it. Just click that, paste your URL, and preview your picture.

The wire is a few feet long and transmits the emergency signal on 121.5 (international emergency radio frequency) with a emergency siren sound. The beacon has a range of 120nautical miles and will last for up to 48 hours. Its basically the same as a black box in a airplane...but i figure i fly over the ocean all the time...the plane would be at the bottom and i would be floating at the top lol. If its a genuine rescue, breitling will replace your watch for free...if its pulled out by a drunk friend at a party, its like a $10-30k fine or something...i dont recall the exact amount but its a big federal offense if you falsify a distress call. My model is a few years old, the newer ones have a secondary beacon at the top as well as a digital timer.
