Epirb exemption zone

 Just about to send our epirb away to gme for a battery replacement 

will be 4-5 weeks without one 


just curious if the 2nm exemption zone still exists from the coast 

last poster I can see is 2014 and was wondering if this is still current?


plan on staying close chasing squid so no big deal not having one for a while
