In BC, SAR groups were recently given a PLB and there is a way to test...However they were registered as a group provincially so the individual groups didnt get the results. As an individual you will be able to test your PLB. Also with everything it pays to do a little research. I once thought all satellite phones were the same and worked everywhere. I now know that there are VAST differences. A Globalstar phone might as well be a brick in your pack for how much it works and that is the same system SPOT uses I believe. The PLB's go to the same place that aircraft ELT signals go, not some call centre in Texas.
