L-TronicsRegister.jpg (2200 bytes)  receivers are specifically designed to locate aircraft Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs), marine Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs), and Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs). They can also be used in other services, such as finding stuck mikes on public service frequencies, cable TV line faults, and scientific research transmitters. Even though satellite detection on 121.5 and 243.0 are being phased out, all 406 MHz emergency beacons sold in the United States and most other countries are required to have a 121.5 MHz homing transmitter, All L-TronicsRegister.jpg (2200 bytes)  Direction Finding equipment will track them by using that frequency.

L-Tronics is now delivering the LL-16 Little L-PerRegister.jpg (2200 bytes)  Portable Direction Finder, our new, upgraded replacement for the venerable LH Series equipment.  Price is $750 and deliver is normally 45 days or less.
