Here’s a pertinent quote from the (biblical) beacon review site:
And personally, I’d think twice about carrying a Pieps beacon in my pocket instead of the harness, though I’ve seen reports of the switch malfunction in a harness.Conclusion
If you do not have 100% confidence in your DSP transceiver, Pieps is offering aggressive upgrade pricing. They are also replacing some transceivers at no charge. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do choose to use a Pieps DSP transceiver:
Physically inspect your avalanche transceiver periodically.
Confirm that the switch is locked into the Send position before you put it in its harness.
Insert your transceiver into its harness with the screen facing toward your body.
Confirm that the sliding switch does not slide when the transceiver is in its harness and that the press-to-unlock tab won't be inadvertently pressed.
The first three of these recommendations apply to all avalanche transceivers. The last recommendation, whether the locking tab will remain effective when the transceiver is in its harness, is DSP-specific.
