Featuring an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe in one convenient package, the Pieps Black Diamond avalanche safety package is the perfect way to get geared up for traveling in the backcountry. Package includes the Pieps DSP avalanche transceiver, Black Diamond Transfer 3 shovel and Black Diamond Super Tour 265 probe. Pieps DSP transceiver has a three-antenna system that pinpoints the location of burials within a 60m range regardless of antenna orientation and burial depth. In a multiple-burial scenario, the unit works to transmit a signal without overlapping other signals. Digital Signal Processing (DSP) technology displays the number of buried victims as stick figures on an easy-to-view LCD screen. When signals are detected, the approximate distance and direction to the burials are displayed-simply follow the arrows to reach a burial. During multiple burial scenarios, the DSP separates the multiple signals and clearly displays the number of buried victims. Upon locating the position of the first victim, the searcher can mark and mask the found signal and immediately begin searching for other burials. In a multiple-burial scenario, the unit works to transmit a signal without overlapping other signals. Pieps DSP avalanche transceiver is compatible with all transceivers operating on the 457 kHz frequency. Transfer 3 shovel features a unique patent-pending trapezoidal bent shaft that offers maximum extension through two-piece shaft design, enhancing both reach and strength. Shaft deploys quickly via a quick squeeze of spring pins; shaft shape prevents rotation for positive engagement of spring pins every time. Ergonomic T-grip handle feels like a D-grip but packs small and is glove- and mitten-friendly. Sturdy anodized 6000-series aluminum blade in a smooth and flat shape carves quickly through snow during recovery and cuts clean during pit analysis.
