      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

FS: Barryvox Avy Transceivers

Recommended Posts

Barryvox recently recalled a limited selection of their transceivers, so both parties may want to check this out first.

Mammut has issued a "Preventative Recall" of it's most recent series of Barryvox Avalanche Transceivers.

Tension cracks may appear in the red plastic casing of some of the Mammut Barryvox Opto 3000 avalanche transceivers produced for the winter 2004/05, possibly allowing the electronics to be exposed to moisture. Although the quality of the plastic was corrected immediately after the problem was detected, to avoid any risk for the user, Mammut Sports Group AG has decided to recall all the devices of the production series in question and remove them from the market.

The units came on the market in August 2004 and were produced for the winter of 2004/2005. All of the non-recalled devices produced with the new plastic have a red sticker on the box reading: "new case." Beacons with the following serial numbers are being recalled: M0080000 - M0088419, M0089616 - M0089800, M0090000 - M0090419, the serial number can be found inside the battery compartment under the bar code. Detailed information regarding this recall can be found in a PDF file on the company's barryvox.com web site.

In the USA, recalled units can be returned to the distributor, Climb High Inc, 135 Northside, Drive Shelburne, VT 05482. Climb High can be reached at 800-451-5127 or by email at info@climbhigh.com.

Mine is almost two years old (so shouldn't be affected by recall.) Had great intentions of using it a bunch up at Baker, but moved south soon afterward buying it and rarely (unfortunateley)go backcountry any more.


Serial Number on carrying case = 101030

No serial number on inside - various codes,etc.,but nothing that resembles a serial number.


Only have 1.
