Is this a good beacon for mountaineering use?

Best Answer Responded on

The Tracker DTS is a good entry level beacon for anyone that travels in avalanche terrain. It is easy to use, reliable, and accurate. It was really a breakthrough for beacons, but it only features two antennas. There are many 3 antenna options now that increase the speed and accuracy of searches (particularly multiple burial scenarios). If you rarely find yourself in avalanche terrain it is a perfect entry level beacon. As you become more experienced using it, you may find that you wish you had several functions not available on the DTS like marking burials.
