Here's an interesting article outlining some hazards with respect to devices that interfere with avalanche beacon operation. A snippit from of the same article featured on this page was also in the Rocky Mountain Section's Spindrift.

Re:Avalanche beacon interference 6 Years ago  
I once tried to see if I could get my VHF radio to pick-up my beacon as it would be a nice redundancy option, but the frequency was far too low (457 kHz versus the AM band at ~1000 kHz). I can only transmit as low as 144,000 kHz legally and not much lower with a malfunction.

Anyone have any success picking up beacons with a radio?

This is an all to under stated story. We should all think about the devices we have in the backcountry that may be "tracking" or progress or helping us "Go Pro". All these devices are a hazard for many reasons. It has been a great reminder about a subject that gets to little publicity. I will be reminding all the people I ski with to turn off all electronics. People are welcome to transmit messages or even make phone calls but the device should be used and then shut off and not simply turned on the entire day.

Thanks David and Matthew.
