|Tom Leep||I read through this site before i purchased my mammut pulse, a bit pricey but when it comes to safety I try not to skimp on the price. Choosing an avalanche beacon - digital, analogue - BCA, Ortovox, Pieps | Backcountry and Avalanche Safety Gear | BackcountrySafety.com|

|Slush Puppie||I just bought the Ortovox 3+ while on my last trip. Glad to see it mentioned favourably here.|

|killclimbz||Oh I use the Pieps DSP I know how it works. Still the fact is it's a lot easier to find a single beacon than to find Multiple beacons. For the uninitiated it can be confusing. The multiple burial scenario is about the worst one out there.|

Honestly I pray I never to use it for single burial much less multiple burial.

|killclimbz||Man, if the snow falls off I may take you up on that offer. Splitboard will come in tow...|

Just jump on the next filght to Switzerland (since we have much more snow than you do) and come prepaired to have your digital ass handed to you (in a gentlemanly fashioned manner of course).

|killclimbz||You get multiple beeps with analog transceivers. You basically zero in on the strongest signal and go from there. It is confusing, but with practice it works fine. Multi beacon searches with a digital beacon is no walk in the park either.|

Just my .02$

|killclimbz||I stand by my statement. I've got tons of experience with both analog and digital beacons. I smoked a guide not that long ago who swore he was faster than me with his analog beacon. Wasn't even a fair contest.|
