  • Tracker3 Signal Suppression (SS) Mode (Video)

    In this video, we show you how and when to use the Signal Suppression (SS) mode on a BCA Tracker3 avalanche transceiver. Signal Suppression mode is the mode used to help solve complex multiple avalanche burials. SS mode suppresses the strongest signal and shows the searcher the second strongest signal, including directional arrows. Always stay in standard search mode when searching for the first transmitter with the Tracker3. Once the first victim has been located and your fine search is complete, you are ready to use Signal Suppression.
