Backcountry Access Tracker DTS Avalanche Transceiver Video

Backcountry Access Tracker's new harness system and user-friendly tracking system speeds up the response time of finding those caught in an avalanche.


  • Two units are required for use; each person in a party should carry a unit for the best chance of rescue in the event of an avalanche
  • Tracker DTS transceiver uses a multi-dimensional antenna system to locate buried transmitters, eliminating user signal-interpretation errors
  • Lights indicate the direction of the signal; simply rotate like a compass and proceed as arrow lights indicate
  • Numeric distance display shows approximate distance to buried transmitter; pinpoint search loudspeaker provides reinforcement to visual clues
  • Holster harness system allows the unit to be easily removed; lanyard ensures unit won't be lost
  • Operates on 457 kHz frequency and is fully compatible with other 457 kHz units; functions as a transmitter and receiver
  • Unit performs automatic performance diagnostic—testing lights, transmit and receive functions and battery level—each time it's turned on
  • Oversized buttons are easy to operate with gloves on; buttons, full gasket around battery box and unit protect against wet-weather conditions
  • Uses three AAA-size alkaline batteries (included) which provide a minimum life of 250 hours in transmit mode; 50 hours in receive mode
