Abstract: Deep burials can provide a vexing challenge to even the most experienced of transceiver users. "Null" and "misleading maximum" signals surrounding the victim often result in excess bracketing, probing, and excavation. By pinpointing on a line using dual-antenna, digital technology, advanced users can reduce the pinpoint area from a plane to a line, minimizing their exposure to these pitfalls and maximizing their chances of making a live recovery.
