Abstract: More and more avalanche transceivers are becoming highly sophisticated signal processing units - not least due to the challenge of solving multiple burial scenarios. This study analyses the behavior of different transmitting strategies during mixed brand burial situations for the first time ever. Results of studies by SLF Davos (made in 2000) shows us: • Over 50% of those buried are the victims of multiple burials • Burials where 2 victims are in close proximity are against the odds! • Even in cases with more than 2 victims we can assume that most of these cases will most likely resemble either a step by step single or a double burial search!
