Summary: The Barryvox VS 2000 Pro is an analog, single-antenna transceiver. It is available with a RECCO chip for an additional €15. Its sister beacon, the Barryvox VS 2000 Pro Ext, includes a powerful external antenna.
Searching: As with all single-antenna transceivers, you (and not the transceiver) must interpret the flux lines to locate the victim (versus multiple antenna beacons that display a direction indicator). Likewise, single-antenna transceivers cannot compensate for spikes (which you can compensate for with good probing). Unlike most single-antenna analog transceivers, the 2000 Pro does not include any visual indication of signal strength.
Controls: The 2000 Pro has a single, glove-unfriendly, dial to change between transmit and receive. This dial also controls the reception sensitivity.
Comfort: The harness is made with a narrow strap and positions the transceiver on the front of your chest.
