      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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: Ortovox F1 Focus Avalanche Transceiver

Recommended Posts

Ortovox F1 Focus Avalanche Transceiver, $90

 

This is an analog beacon operating on the international 457kHz standard.

 

The beacon is in perfect working condition and shows only minor cosmetic wear due to the lettering fading on the front side.

 

I am the original owner. I have never dropped or abused the unit. It has been in storage in a dry environment when not in use.

 

I used it mainly for teaching avalanche rescue for a couple of days a year off and on for a few years, and occasional back-country snowshoe trips.

 

The instruction manual can be found online. Use is fairly intuitive, as the unit gets louder and flashes more lights the closer you get to the victim. Practice makes perfect of course. This unit has never been buried and has only been worn under my shell during snowshoe trips.

 

The lights, speakers, and harness straps are all in working order.

Cash only, please. Must be willing to pick the unit up in the Greenwood area.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
