HAT Recommended Transceiver Ortovox 3+
At last! An avalanche transceiver that keeps you safe and is easy to use
The 3+ digital transceiver from Ortovox uses Smart Antenna technology. This analyses the position of the 3+’s three antennas and automatically transmits using the antenna that sends the signal up to your rescuers not down into the snow.
When searching, the circular display clearly indicates the position and distance to the buried victim (as well as the battery capacity), keeping you going in the right direction. The precise distance values help you to reduce the area you need to probe, making rescues quicker and easier.
There is a large switch to change from search to send if you see an avalanche coming your way whilst searching
The 3+ is also enhanced for multiple burials with number of victims displayed. After finding a victim, you can mask their signal (the 3+ then shows that victim as pinned) and move on the rescue the others.
The rubberized housing keeps this transceiver safe from the elements,
It only needs 1 AA battery
The 3+ also comes in a choice of two colours with a bag and elastic cord for convenient carrying.
