My purpose is not for finding someone in an avalanche  but rather for 
finding skiers who are lost and wearing beacons.. ie flying over an area in 
a helicopter and monitoring the frequency...as a general locator system. 
For someone buried there is no alternative but beacons and shovels.
Had a snowmobiler loose his life here yesterday in a triggered avalanche.
