No you do not need two of the same beacons for it to work. Beacon technology is now universal so any brand can be used with any other no matter if the frequency is analog or digital. As far as just using one, it doesn't work at all. The only way using one solo would be if you are in out of bounds resort area and ski patrol can get to you, or if other people in the area randomly have beacons they could pick up your signal. However being out solo with a beacon and no one is around, then it is rendered useless.
