BCA Tracker3 Avalanche Transceiver
The Tracker3 avalanche transceiver is used to quickly locate avalanche victims and is required equipment for ski touring and backcountry skiing. The Tracker 3 is one of the fastest and most precise pinpointing transceivers on the market. The biggest difference between the Tracker3 and Tracker2 is that the Tracker3 is 20% smaller and lighter. BCA claims it is the thinnest multiple-antenna avalanche transceiver available. It features triple receive antenna, instantaneous real-time display, and the same easy-to-use interface as the Tracker DTS. A mechanical search/transmit switch is super intuitive making it easy to use right “out of the box.” Signal suppression and Big Picture modes make for straightforward multiple-victim searching.

Triple Receive Antenna
Three-antennas transceivers have antennas pointed in three directions. When searching for a beacon that's buried less than a half meter below the snow there is no noticaeable difference between a 3-antenna and 2-antenna transceiver. However, when the victim is buried more than a meter below the snow a two-antenna transceiver can have spike that a 3-antenna transceiver will eliminate.
Multiple Burial Indicator Lights
Pinpoints and stores the location of more than one victim.
