Barryvox VS 68 Avalanche Transceiver Review

The Barryvox VS 68 was released in 1968 and discontinued in 1994.

This was the first, and long since discontinued, Barryvox transceiver. It was commissioned by the Swiss Army in 1968. It is similar to other single-antenna avalanche beacons.

I have done minimal testing with this transceiver. If you have a VS 68 collecting dust in your closet, I'd love to add it to my museum of avalanche transceivers.
