FBM200A Beacon Monitor

The FBM200A Beacon Monitor is a versatile new application for monitoring. It is a high-gain dedicated 406 MHz receiver that automatically receives, decodes, logs, and maps all Cospas-Sarsat 406 MHz beacon transmissions from a wide surrounding area (self-test and LIVE activation). Applications of the FBM200A Beacon Monitor include, but are not limited to:

  • Port monitoring
  • Airfield monitoring
  • Park monitoring
  • Beacon Manufacturing or Test Facility monitoring
  • Beacon self test transmission verification
  • Tower verification of ELT signal strength


The FBM200A Beacon Monitor decodes the beacon message and also measures the transmitting beacon frequency and relative signal strength. It comes with very versatile software that allows the user to customize the program for their desired application. The Beacon Monitor comes with an antenna, or connect the optional high performance outdoor antenna for increased area coverage.

To help reduce the number of false distress alerts, the Beacon Monitor is a great way to monitor the activity of any 406 MHz beacon in your surrounding area. The user can create custom notifications that can be sent to e-mail, and SMS text messaging.
