I recall when I wrote about SARSAT in my 1988 book on
'Uncovering Soviet Disasters', that figure had to be qualified
to state, 'Non-USSR cases only". SARSAT was picking up
lots of beacons within Soviet territory, but the USSR never
provided follow-up information about whether the signals
were genuine emergencies or false alarms. I presume that
the current situation has improved.

One interesting factoid--only 1 in 50 signals on the rescue frequency is
genuine.
