I always found this site to be a great resource.
From Steve Achelis, Beaconreviews.com
I just published a major update to the BeaconReviews.com website. Here are the main changes:
- The site was completely redesigned so you can find information faster:
- The information about avalanche rescue is now organized into:
I also added a new section about searching using a probe line (a topic I frequently teach).
- Other updates:
- There’s a new chart showing the range that various transceivers receive a signal when the antennas are perpendicular. This range is probably more important than the traditional range charts that show the best-case ranges.
- Every page was reviewed and updated (e.g., airbags, transceiver comparison, interference, search strip widths, user manuals, etc.).
This is my 11th year of publishing BeaconReviews.com and it’s probably the biggest update yet. FWIW, I invest my time in this project, sometimes begrudgingly, because I’m hopeful the information will save lives. Please tell your friends and colleagues about the site.
