Beacon Registration Forms

IMPORTANT NOTICE Regarding New Types of Beacons
Distress-tracking ELTs and 23-hex second generation beacons are not yet authorized for use in the US. If you are registering an ELT(DT) or a 23-hex SGB, understand that your registration will not be active in the SARSAT system until its beacon type has been officially authorized.

If you cannot register directly online, please download the appropriate form (PDF) from the list below to register your beacon. After downloading the file, open it and type your registration information directly into the fields, then save the file and email it to us as an attachment. If you prefer, you can print the form after completing it and send it to us via fax or USPS.

If you are unable to type information directly into the PDF, print a blank form and complete it by hand (please enter information legibly), then mail it to us via USPS, or scan or snap a picture of it and email it to us. If you must fax your completed registration form, please take extra care when hand-writing your information to ensure its legibility.
