Abstract: Avalanche rescue beacons, used efficiently, are well known to be the best means of effecting rapid recovery of buried avalanche victims. It is also well known that considerable practice is required for proficient use of avalanche beacons. This paper presents two new beacon functions that accelerate the beacon learning curve and reduce the potential for confusion and dangerous mistakes. Also presented are several additional features that allow for easier use and improved efficiency.
