What irks me is that federal legislation requires all boats that  
travel more than 2 nautical miles beyond 'partially smooth waters'  
must have an EPIRB, yet 4WDs travelling into remote areas do not.

Oh yes, and to rent an EPIRB costs as little as $50 a week...

And to respond to those who asked privately which was the better  
number to ring from your mobile - it's 112... (which works across all  
networks, regardless of your SIM card's affiliation.
