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.
