I had left on the Saturday morning on a solo backpacking hunting trip in the Victorian high country, when I was out hunting the following morning I broke my ankle and fibula .
I had no phone reception or couldn't get anyone on the vhf radio so I used my PLB.
Within 45 minutes I had a helicopter above me , which picked me up and took me to my home town to reunite with my wife and children, so the PLB saved a lot of stress!
I would like to thank everyone who help in making the epirbs they are an amazing thing they saved my family and my self a lot of stress and heartache
