Pieps DSP Sport
The Pieps DSP Sport is the dynamic, 3 antenna device for the young freeriding generation.
The long range, single button, intelligent transmitting system provides the best support in any situation.
With a maximum range of 50m and 3 smart antenna this simple to use transceiver is a reliable and effective choice for any off-piste skier.
This transceiver comes with a function called "Old Device Mode" which means your Pieps DSP sport will recognise older transceivers that have a continuous signal, which normally has a negative effect on the ‘Mark’ function of most transceivers.
The next generation of Pieps Transceivers are designed to work alongside the iProbe which will take over in receiving the next strongest signal at the probing stage.
The DSP Sport features the patented triple antenna transceiver combined with advanced digital abilities such as transceiver counting and multiple burial indication in order to rescue buried companions quickly and efficiently.
With its intelligent transmitter (capable of altering your signal timing to avoid overlap with other signals), direction/distance information displayed from the start and different modes to address different situations, the PIEPS DSP makes an ideal tool for experienced users.
The transceiver is designed to cope effectively with multiple burial situations, allowing multiple victims to be pinpointed on the screen at one time. The on screen display is simple to read, and the buried victims are displayed clearly in the graphic.
By measuring the frequency of the beacons, the transceiver will home in on the closest beacon transmitting the strongest frequency, giving you an approximate distance and direction of the buried victim. The other victims are then shown as markers.
For added ease of use, the transceiver categorises the victims according to their distance from you.
One of the most useful features when using the Pieps DSP sport transceiver in multiple burial situations is its ability to work with the iProbe. When using the two devices together, the transceiver can suppress the beacons of those victims that have been scanned, allowing you to then scan for the next victim.
This is one of the most advanced transceivers on the market. Whilst the design is clear and simple, it does require a good deal of practise to get the full benefits of the transceiver, particularly in a multiple burial scenario. As with every transceiver, regular practise is essential.
The Pieps DSP Sport can be brought in a package which includes a Pieps Shovel Tour & Pieps Probe Aluminium 260, This can be purchased HERE.

If skiers are caught out by an avalanche, their companions in the vicinity have their work cut out. They have to locate the victims and dig them out as quickly as possible. The chances of survival diminish rapidly after 18 minutes of burial in the snow. Avalanche transceivers help to drastically reduce search time, maximising the likelihood of a succesful rescue.
