An avalanche rescue beacon (called often a detector or transceiver) helps with localizing the victim of avalanche very quickly. A transceiver can both emit and receive a low-power pulsed signal between users.

 

The first avalanche beacon was an analog - it transmitted the signal as an audible tone. The tone was getting louder as the user was closer to the victim. Modern avalanche detectors are digital - they take the strength of the signal and the emitted dipole flux pattern to compute the distance and direction to the buried person.

 

At 2ski-glisse.ch you will find a trustworthy device, the Mammut Barryvox® avalanche transceiver in an affordable set. It is good to recall a story of Barry - the famous Swiss avalanche rescue dog. He is the namesake of the Mammut Barryvox beacons - "vox" means "voice", so BARRYVOX means “Barry’s Voice” or “the sound of rescue on the way”. The Mammut Barryvox avalanche transceiver has a simple interface, easy to use even during stressful situations. Almost 50 years of experience helped Mammut to create the life-saving device that works when other methods fail.
