BCA offers a Wireless Beacon Training Park System that provides an easy and efficient way for recreationalists and pros to practice with their avalanche transceivers. When fully set up, eight waterproofs transmit boxes are controlled wirelessly through a portable, weatherproof control panel. To change the search scenario, the controller simply flicks the on/off switch. Each transmit box comes with a 2 x 2 probe target, Recco diode, and motion sensor that emits an audible beep from the control panel when the target has been struck.
BCA's Wireless Beacon Training Park system is popular with resorts offering sidecountry access, and with snowmobile dealers and sled clubs that offer avalanche education to their rider communities. The system comes with signage, setup, and detailed use instructions.
