Single antenna transceivers. I know lots of people are hesitant to upgrade because they’re “faster with their old transceiver,” they’re waiting “for the dust to settle” as new technologies standardize, or they just “don’t get out much”. Here’s why you should upgrade now:
- Three antennae digital transceivers generally won’t find single antenna (analog) transceivers as well as digital units. That means if two people are buried close together, the one with the digital transceiver is likely to be isolated first. Bad news if it’s you under the snow wearing the old analog transceiver!
- In a multi-burial scenario, signal overlap can be a significantly bigger issue with old transceivers in the equation. Modern digital transceivers are slowed down and again, it’s you under the snow who bears the cost.
- Old analog transceivers send out fewer but longer signals. That means in any given period of time there is less information available to process. This slows down a digital transceiver. Consequently search speed slows down. Again, it’s you who pays the piper.
- False maximum and complex deep burial problems aren’t an issue with modern three antenna transceivers except for extreme cases (where burial depth is greater than probe length).
- Multiple burial problems are generally easier to solve with modern three antennae digital transceivers. And it’s only going to get easier as fewer old units remain in service.
- Even in simple scenarios search times are faster with digital units – once you’ve practiced and learned how to use it effectively.

Just a quick addendum to David's post here.

ACC National, Rocky Mountain, Edmonton and Calgary sections have all enacted motions to prohibit the use of any beacon that does not have at least 2 antennas.
