Oh Lord, don't even joke about it. WAY too many people seriously think the Recco reflector in their boots, pants, jacket, whatever actually IS a beacon. It's insane.

People need to start seeing Recco for what it primarily is - a body recovery tool. If someone is finding you via Recco, they're probably finding your corpsicle.

So I shouldn't sell my beacon? I have recco in my jacket and pants though. I figure that's double the chance they will recover me unless I can out run a slide

Reminds me of people who bicycle with neon safety vests but don't follow traffic laws or scan traffic.
