Product Description
DSP Sport Avalanche Beacon by Pieps
All of sudden, it seems, the backcountry is as accessible and popular as the taco joint down the street, and while sketchy tacos have their dangers (don't get the pescado especial), you're much more likely to get into a serious accident working your way down a gnarly line than sitting in a corner booth with a cerveza and a pile of carnitas. The Pieps DSP Sport Avalanche Beacon can't prevent accidents, but it will increase your chance of being rescued, or of rescuing someone else, when things go from fun to scary in the blink of an eye. As its name suggests, the DSP Sport is a trimmed-down version of the DSP Pro, with a simple one-button interface that gives you only three options--send, search, and flag. Just slide the side switch to toggle between transmitting and receiving, and mark burials using the flag button. When you've flagged a signal, the three antennas automatically switch to the nearest unflagged signal for streamlined searching. The Sport has a 50m circular search range and a smart transmitter that, during a burial, automatically switches to the antenna with the clearest broadcasting range, minimizing dead spots and signal traps that can drastically reduce a beacon's effectiveness. A simple, clear display makes the Sport easy to learn and even easier to use. It has a distance readout, a directional arrow, multiple-burial indicators, and a battery-life display, which provide all the necessary information without cluttering the screen. The Sport is also compatible with the Pieps Iprobe II to help reduce search time, particularly in a multiple-burial scenario. There are also available software updates to keep your beacon up-to-date. Please remember, a beacon is NOT a guarantee that you will survive an avalanche; get educated, learn to use your tools, travel with trusted partners, and be smart out there.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
