    Unless youíre really tight on cash, could consider getting a 2nd proper beacon, which might be useful as a back-up (for yourself or, e.g., when friends come visit and they didnít pack right)?

    Side note: If I were to use a friendís back-up beacon, thereís a certain level of trust that needs to be there...

    I could never understand how guys spend thousands on their toys to recreate then complain about the price of a piece of equipment that could possibly help save a life

    As far as a transmit only device, I suppose it's viable for an inbounds skier - electronic Recco, if you will. I recall someone posting here that ski patrol's search sequence is beacon, then Recco.

    Of course, even with occasional news of inbounds avys, I doubt many non-touring skiers would ponder buying one.

    They're more likely to buy Shifts, a "real" beacon and then stay inbounds.

    Never mind ...
