Avalanche Awareness
Make sure all rescue equipment is functioning properly before
venturing into the backcountry. Perform a transceiver trailhead test
every time you use your Tracker. Check that all transceivers transmit
and receive properly—and that all receive a signal at a minimum
distance of ten meters, the international standard for effective range.
Do not place cellular phones, communication radios, or any other
electronic equipment within 20" (50 cm) of the Tracker DTS while
performing a transceiver search. In receive mode, irregular readings
and decreased range can be caused by these and other sources of
electrical interference, such as power lines, electrical storms, and
electrical generating equipment. In transmit mode, keep the Tracker
DTS at least 8" (20 cm) from other electronic equipment or large
metal objects. Use only alkaline batteries of identical age and
brand. Do not use rechargeable, lithium, Oxyride, PowerPix, or
any other non-alkaline battery.
This owner’s manual covers the basic techniques required
to use the Tracker DTS effectively. To increase your efficiency,
refer to the advanced techniques described on our website: www.
backcountryaccess.com. Here you will also find important resources
for obtaining avalanche education and updates on regional
avalanche conditions.
To ensure warranty protection and to be notified of periodic software
updates, please complete an online warranty registration at

ENGLISH
This is a basic introduction to avalanche safety and awareness.
We encourage you to read this manual thoroughly. On our
website, you will also find a list of avalanche instructors and
guides.
N We strongly suggest taking an avalanche course in your
area before venturing into the backcountry. Always check your
local avalanche bulletin to determine what terrain is appropriate
for the current conditions.
No avalanche transceiver can save lives without a fully trained
user. Practice frequently with your Tracker before going into
the backcountry. Learn and understand the inherent dangers
of backcountry travel. Become educated in avalanche hazard
evaluation, route selection, and self-rescue. In addition to your
transceiver, always carry a probe and shovel—and always travel
with a partner. We also recommend the use of avalanche airbags.

Bulletins from your local avalanche forecast center will enable
you to identify the avalanche problems to avoid when planning
your route.
At the trailhead, check that each person has a working transceiver,
probe, and shovel—and knows how to use them. We also
recommend the use of avalanche airbags.
Learn to recognize avalanche terrain:
• Does this slope have a history of sliding?
• What is the angle and aspect of the slope?
• Will recent weather impact snow stability?
Learn to avoid avalanche terrain:
• Is there any evidence of recent avalanche activity?
• Is the slope angle between 30 and 45 degrees?
• Does the slope you plan to use have dangerous terrain traps? (Rocks, trees, gullies, cliffs, etc.)
Travel with considerate partners:
• Cross potentially dangerous terrain one at a time.
• Identify and practice stopping in safe zones.
• Have an escape route in mind if the slope does avalanche.
• Communicate with your partners before moving on to the slope.

Avalanche Awareness
• Recreating at an area that’s been visited without incident before and feeling confident in its stability.
• Not speaking out or communicating concerns about a path or slope, fearing conflict.
• Being overconfident in the groups’ abilities.
• Determination to reach a destination without re-evaluating terrain and conditions.
This quick reference page is an introduction to proper use of the
Tracker DTS. For more detailed information, read the entire manual
and consult our website: www.backcountryaccess.com.
Basic functions
On/off: Push and turn the on/off switch on the back of the Tracker
to the "on" position. It turns on all LEDs, displays battery power in
percent, and enters transmit mode. Change batteries before they
reach 40 percent.
If in doubt, it is always best to avoid questionable terrain and
return when the snow is stable.
Search mode: Push the red search/transmit button, hold until "SE"
is displayed, then quickly release.
If you are caught in an avalanche:
Return to transmit: Press the search/transmit button until "tr" is
displayed.
• Yell “avalanche” and wave your arms to alert your group.
• Deploy your avalanche airbag if you have one.
• Try to escape the slide by grabbing trees or rocks or ‘swimming’
to the side.
• Try to keep your airway clear of snow.
• When you feel the slide slowing, thrust a hand upward in hopes of
it being seen.
• Place your other hand in front of your face to increase the air space.
• Remain calm, breathe slowly and conserve your air.
Searching for victims:
• Do not go for help! You are the victim’s only chance of survival!
• Establish a last seen point.
• Confirm you are not in danger of a second avalanche occurring.
• Look for visual indicators as clues to the victim’s location.
• Begin your signal search for the victim using your avalanche
transceiver.

Trailhead Test
To ensure proper transmit and search functions, always perform
a trailhead test before starting your tour. One person should walk
20 meters away and make sure his or her signal is detected by the
others. Then the rest of the group switches to transmit mode and
walks toward the leader, who should confirm their signals can each
be detected from 20 meters away. The leader should always switch
back to transmit mode after the test is completed.

When traveling in a group, be aware of the errors groups
typically make:
Quick Reference
Searching with the Tracker DTS
The objective is to find the strongest signal (lowest distance reading)
and immediately begin probing the area.
In the event of a burial, switch your Tracker (and all other
transceivers) to search mode. "SE" will flash in the distance window
until a signal is captured.
Signal search: If there is a "last seen point," start your signal
search there, and search downhill. Otherwise, start your signal
search at the top, bottom or side of the slide path. Allow a
maximum of 40 meters between searchers or between switchbacks
if only one searcher. Slowly rotate your Tracker back and forth until
you engage the signal.
Coarse search: Once a signal is engaged, align the Tracker so
that any of the center three lights are flashing and move quickly
in the direction the Tracker is pointing. Your direction of travel
might be straight or slightly curved. Make sure the number in the
distance display is decreasing. If it is increasing, turn 180 degrees.
Inside ten meters, move slowly and try to keep the center search
light engaged.
Fine search: Within three meters, use your transceiver close to
the snow surface and look for the smallest distance reading. Ignore
sudden fluctuations in distance and direction; the strongest signal is
often just past these fluctuation points. Begin probing at the smallest
reading (strongest signal).

Probing/Pinpointing
At your lowest distance reading, probe in concentric circles, with each
probe hole about 10 inches (25 cm) apart. Your probe should enter the
snow perpendicular to the slope. Once you have confirmed the victim’s
location, leave the probe in the snow.
Remember, transceiver searches are only part of the avalanche
rescue process. It is equally important to practice the probing and
shoveling techniques found later in this section.
FAMILIARIZATION
Adjustment/Fitting
The Tracker DTS can be worn with or without its harness. The
manufacturer recommends securing it with the harness. When used
with a harness, the Tracker DTS should be worn underneath your outer
garments, as shown in Figure A. Distance/directional display should be
against your body, on/off switch should be exposed and visible.
To search, remove Tracker from pouch, but keep harness and
lanyard attached to your body. If using without harness, keep
Tracker in a secure pocket, preferably in your pants or other
garment that won't be removed. Attach lanyard clip to zipper or
other solid fixture. If lanyard is removed from harness or clothing for
searching, keep attached to your wrist with loop provided.

Shoveling
Shoveling is difficult and exhausting and consumes the majority of
time during an avalanche rescue. Do not take shoveling skills for
granted. For best results, start shoveling just downhill of the probe.
Make your hole at least one “wingspan” wide and excavate downhill
about 1.5 times the burial depth (this can be determined by noting
the depth marking on the probe).

Startup/Testing
Turn on the Tracker DTS by depressing and then turning the on/
off switch u clockwise (see inside front cover). When turned on,
the Tracker cycles through all LED's, then indicates the remaining
battery life in the battery power display/distance indicator v.
A reading of 95 to 99 percent indicates fully charged batteries.

Familiarization
Power Supply
The Tracker DTS operates with three AAA alkaline batteries. Use
only high-quality alkaline batteries of identical age and brand. Do
not use rechargeable, lithium, Oxyride, PowerPix or any other nonalkaline battery.
Note that the battery level percentage is approximate, depending on
battery manufacturer and operating temperature. The manufacturer
suggests replacing your batteries well before reaching 40 percent.
If the Tracker is subjected to excessive moisture, open the battery
door x to help allow the unit to dry. To prevent corrosion of
contacts, remove batteries during extended periods of inactivity. The
manufacturer does not warranty damage caused by battery corrosion.
Search/Transmit
To enter search mode, push the search/transmit button y for at least
one second, but for no longer than two seconds. During this time, the
distance indicator v will display two dashes (“– –”). Release your
thumb when the display changes from “– –” to “SE” and the Tracker
sounds a series of three beeps. If the button is released before or
after this time, it will remain in transmit mode.
The Tracker can be switched instantly from search (SE) to transmit
(tr) mode at any time by simply pushing the search/transmit button
Options
Auto-Revert System: At startup, the user can engage the Tracker’s
auto-revert safety feature by pressing the options button z while
pressing and turning the on/off switch. With auto-revert engaged, the
Tracker will revert to transmit mode after five minutes in search mode.
If auto-revert is engaged, “Ar” will be shown in the power
display after the diagnostic testing. If auto-revert is not engaged, “nr”
will be displayed.
If auto-revert has been engaged, then after five minutes in search
mode, an alarm will sound for ten seconds and "Ar" will flash
repeatedly in the distance indicator. To remain in search mode, press
the search/transmit button or the options button at any time during
the ten-second alarm period. If ten seconds elapses, “tr” will appear
and the Tracker will revert to transmit mode.
10
If auto-revert is not engaged, the Tracker will sound a short alarm
every ten minutes to remind the user that he or she is in search mode.
Special Mode: Special (SP) mode is an advanced feature designed to
assist expert searchers in specialized multiple burial situations. These
situations are typically only found in guided groups where victims
are in close proximity and one rescuer can start shoveling while a
professional guide resumes the transceiver search. SP mode can
provide that searcher with a distance and direction to the next victim.
In search (SE) mode, the Tracker only displays the strongest signal
(once the searcher is within about ten meters). In special (SP) mode,
however, it will display all signals, regardless of their strength—
providing they are within special mode’s reduced search window. In
special mode, the search area is reduced from 180 degrees—front
and back—to about 75 degrees: signals will only be displayed if they
are captured within the center three directional lights.
Special mode can only be entered while the user is in search mode.
To enter SP mode, press the options button z. When
signals are detected in this mode, they are displayed for a shorter
time than in SE mode.
Mute Mode: To mute the sound while in search mode, push the
options button z for three seconds until “LO” is displayed, then
release. To turn the speaker back on, perform the same operation.
“L1” will be displayed, indicating the speaker is on.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Searching
The Tracker DTS operates using the 457 kHz international standard
frequency. It is fully compatible with all avalanche transceivers
adhering to this standard. Do not use with 457kHz transceivers
designed for firefighter rescue.
When searching, keep the Tracker DTS at least 20 inches (50 cm)
away from electrical equipment, including cell phones. Turn all
electrical equipment off if possible.
The search process includes four phases: the signal search, the
coarse search, the fine search, and the probing/pinpointing phase.
Signal Search: The signal search refers to the process of
establishing a search pattern and looking for a signal. The search
pattern will be defined by the victim’s last seen area, the size of the

Prior to the signal search, be sure that all transceivers are turned to
search mode. Rotate the Tracker slowly in all directions (Figure D)
while moving in the direction as defined by your signal search pattern.
While searching, be aware of other physical clues, such as equipment
or extremities protruding from the snow surface. When no signal is
detected, “SE” will flash in the distance indicator. Once a signal is
detected consistently, mark this spot and begin the coarse search.
Coarse Search: The coarse search is the portion of the search from
where you have detected a steady signal to where you are close to
the victim.
Figure D
Signal search
Rotate the Tracker slowly in your
hand, but move rapidly down the
search path. Do not abandon
your search path until you have
captured a strong, steady signal.
Ignore irregular signals, which can
sometimes be caused by electrical
interference.
Once the signal is consistently detected, rotate the Tracker slowly on
a horizontal plane until the center direction light { is blinking. The
Tracker is now pointed in the direction of the strongest signal, or your
direction of travel (Figure E). The four lights { on either side of
center tell you which way to rotate the Tracker to engage the center
12
light. The distance indicator v tells you, in approximate meters, how
far you must travel (1 meter = 1.1 yards or 3.3 feet). If the number on
the distance indicator is increasing, you are on the same axis as the
victim’s signal, but moving in the opposite direction. Turn 180
degrees, engage the center search light again, and continue your
search in the direction the Tracker is pointing. If you are stationary,
but the distance is significantly changing, you are probably detecting
the signal of another rescuer. Make sure all rescuers are in search
mode before continuing.
The Tracker is very sensitive. Slight
movement in any direction will actuate
a different search light. Rotate it very
slowly so as not to “skip” over the
center search light window.
Direction of
strongest signal
In special (SP) mode, signals
are only displayed if they fall
within the center three windows.
You may find that, while following the directional lights, your route
follows an arc. This is because the Tracker follows the shape of the
electromagnetic signal coming from the transmitting transceiver’s
antenna.The distance displayed is the distance to be traveled along
that flux line, not the straight-line distance from you to the victim.
OP
TIONS
Fine Search: The fine search is the final part of the transceiver
search, which is performed on foot with the transceiver positioned at
or near the snow surface. The objective of the fine search is to locate
where the signal is strongest and to reduce the area to be probed.

Fine Search
Bracketing: When your distance
indicator reaches 3 meters,
search along a straight line until
you have passed the lowest
distance reading. Return to the
lowest reading and “bracket” in
search of an even lower reading.
Ignore the directional lights while
in the fine search.

slide, and the number of searchers. Refer to Figures B and C, below,
to establish a signal search pattern. If the slide is less than 40 meters
wide, the signal search path will be directly up or down the center. If
the victim’s last seen area is well defined, the signal search will follow
a direct path along the fall line to or from this point.
Operating Instructions
Operating Instructions
From the point where you have located the smallest reading,
"bracket" at 90-degree angles to the left and then to the right in
search of a lower reading (Figure F). Repeat if necessary along both
axes. Begin probing at the lowest distance reading.
Probing/Pinpointing: At the point
where the distance has reached a
minimum, probe the area in concentric
circles, with each probe hole about
10 inches (25cm) apart. Your probe
should enter the snow perpendicular
to the slope. Once you have confirmed
the victim’s location, leave the probe
in the snow.
Shoveling: While shoveling
might seem elementary, it usually
consumes the majority of time
during an avalanche transceiver
rescue. For best results, start
shoveling just downhill of the probe.
Make your hole one “wingspan”
wide and excavate downhill about
1.5 times the burial depth.

Once you have located the first transceiver, turn it off if you

case, move in that direction until the Tracker isolates that signal.
Special Techniques

For more advanced shoveling techniques, see our website:
www.backcountryaccess.com.
Multiple Burials
If you begin to receive more than one set of signal data, you probably
have several victims within your receive range. Stay in search (SE)
mode, and focus on the closest distance reading, attempting to
engage that signal in the center search light. If you are roughly the
same distance from both transmitters, the Tracker will often flash “SE”.
Once you are significantly closer to one signal—and within about
ten meters of it—the Tracker DTS (in SE mode) will “lock” onto
that signal and mask out the others. Once you are locked in, the
14
Tracker will behave very similar to how it does in a single transceiver
search. Pay attention to the readings you last received from the
other transceiver; they will give you an indication of where to go after
finding the closest one.
In most cases, multiple burials are approached as a series of single
burials. However, special techniques might be helpful if the victims’
transceivers cannot be turned off and there are several rescuers
available (so some can start shoveling while the best transceiver
user continues searching). These techniques are only necessary for
close-proximity situations, where two or more victims are suspected
to be very close to each other. If the victims are located less than
about five meters from each other, then it is possible to move past
a signal without it being detected. If the victims are suspected to
be further apart than this, then it is quite simple to continue on your
signal search until the second victim’s signal is captured and isolated
by your Tracker. In the case of suspected close-proximity multiple
burials (with more than one rescuer available), we suggest the
following special techniques:
Three-Circle Method: This technique involves remaining in SE
mode and making concentric circles around the location of the first
victim until another signal is detected. It is most effective in large
deposition areas and low-angle terrain.
15
ENGLISH
Move your transceiver very slowly in a straight line along the
surface of the snow during the final three meters of the fine search.
Ignore sudden fluctuations in distance and direction, often followed
by no distance reading and/or "SE" in the distance indicator. These
“spike readings” mean you are very close. The lowest reading will
be near this point.
Operating Instructions
Operating Instructions
If no other signal is captured in SP mode and you suspect victims
are nearby, stand up and try again at chest height. If still no other
signal is detected, take three steps back and repeat (or revert to SE
mode and use the three-circle method).
For detailed instructions on using the special techniques above, see
our Advanced Tracker Manuals at www.backcountryaccess.com.
Once you have located another signal in SP mode, begin to move
in that direction. If the distance consistently decreases, you are
going in the right direction. Travel far enough in SP mode to confirm
the distance is decreasing and which way the flux line is trending.
If more than one signal is being displayed and it becomes unclear
which one to pursue, continue in the direction you have been
searching. Always switch back to SE mode when you think you are
getting closer to transceiver 2 than transceiver 1.
Special Mode: For greater efficiency in close-proximity multiple
burials, use special (SP) mode. This mode enables the Tracker to
display the distance and direction of signals other than those of the
closest transceiver. It also reduces the Tracker’s search “window”
to the center three directional lights, enabling the searcher to mask
out transceiver 1 and differentiate it from transceiver 2. SP mode is
used to determine approximately what direction and distance to go
to get closer to transceiver 2. Once you are closer, always switch
back to SE mode.
To use SP mode, first re-engage transceiver 1 in your center search
light at the lowest possible distance reading. With the center search
light engaged, switch the Tracker to SP mode (Figure I). Then
rotate—do not sweep—the Tracker slowly until another signal is
detected (transceiver 2), most likely with a larger distance reading.
If the Tracker is rotated more than about 40 degrees away from the
flux line of transceiver 1, that signal will disappear, allowing you to
focus on the signal from transceiver 2.
If after finding a victim, no further signals are detected in SP mode,
continue the search if there are still missing victims. Revert to search
mode and perform a signal search of the remaining unchecked areas
within the debris pile. Resume your signal search at the point where
it was originally abandoned.

Special (SP) mode
In special mode (SP), all signals
are shown, but Tracker acts as a
“spotlight” with narrowed vision:
approximately 75 degrees in front and
in back of the searching transceiver.
Only the signals within this angle
(transceiver 2) are shown. This 75°
angle corresponds to the Tracker’s
center three lights.

Always switch back to search mode
(SE) when you’re more than halfway
from transceiver 1 to transceiver 2.

Micro-Search Strip Method: This technique is more useful in smaller debris areas, like those often encountered in guiding exams. The
user remains in SE mode and crisscrosses the debris pile in strips
three to five meters apart until the next signal is detected.
