as straightforward as it gets

great beacon, not so useful for multiple searches. this goes in my girlfriend's or my dog's pack when we ski, now that i have the D3

First - analog can be great for multiple burials - with a lot more practice than most people commit. Know what kind of user/practicer you are, then get appropriate beacon.

Second - put the beacon on using straps. Packs can get ripped off. I've seen it happen.

Third - Please, unless you are skiing somewhere really remote with nobody other than your dog, No doggie beacon. I love my dog, but imagine that two beacons are buried - one is your ski partner, the other your dog, and you don't know which signal is who. Or just as bad is a fearful dog running in circles in send mode while you are trying to find buried partner.

Fourth - use your head before your beacon.

that's a good point i've never thought of, about the dog.
