Isotech Technology Most modern beacons have three receiving antennas, with two of them being used simultaneously in the primary search. Most of the time, the 2nd antenna's performance is less than that of the primary, affecting the search band width. The Neo is the first beacon to equalize performance of both antennas and consequently is the first beacon to achieve a 60 meter wide search band width.
Beacons Require Training Wearing an avalanche beacon is no guarantee of safety in avalanche terrain. We recommend that backcountry travelers take an AIARE Level One class or the equivalent, and practice the skills they learn there regularly with their partners.
