Canyoning death in Blue Mountains 18-Jan-2010 At 10:51:50 AM juanes
The cost of owning an EPIRP is prohibitive. However as other have pointed out these are available to borrow or hire from PARKS or police. Also most clubs which take part in activities like hiking, climbing and the like; will have some to hire to their members.

Should every one carry a beacon? Well I recon that's up to the individual to decide how best to manage their risk. In my opinion a beacon is most likely to save a life before things really take a turn for the worst. Regrettably this is not always an option. Once a member of the party needs hospitalization, a beacon will most likely only ensure that the rest of the party will receive rescue; before they to get into trouble them selves.

Disclaimer: I use a helmet, and carry a phone. I have only ever carried an EPIRP when going on hikes that put me days away from the nearest road (like the Western Arthurs).
