Some of the PLB's have an international response. So it doesn't matter where you are at. Keep in mind though, you only turn it on when you need a rescue. We had a guy at Berthoud Pass that skied there without any avy gear and such. A well meaning friend bought him a PLB saying it was to help keep him safe from Avalanches. Dumbass thought it was an avy beacon and turned it on every time he went skiing on the pass. Which of course caused S&R to scramble. He was gone by the time they got there. This went on for about a month, until he forgot to turn it off one day. They showed up at his house and pointed out what a dumbass he was...
