I don't care for analogs at all. I've had people argue with me that they can search faster with them than with out. I smoke them by minutes every time doing a search. Bobski, our old lead instructor instructor had a flat out challenge to anyone with an analog to try to beat him locating beacons. He could find four in under four minutes. No one every came close.

So yeah, I am skeptical with the analog guys. I've actually given them my beacon to use for the day and used their's on an occasion or two. Since I am practiced with analog beacons, and I wanted them to be able to find me fast...
