The Epirb should be registered shortly after it's puchased. If it will be months later, you would want to check with ACR to see how they want to go about the 2 year registered period.

Not obsolete at all. This is the current epirb. The 406 signal goes through satellite. The 121.5 can be homed in on by surface vessels. So it is all important.
