I am wondering if the lsO2 AAs are sufficient to operate the unit in low temps. As per Doug Ritter's Blog they won't confirm it meets the COSPAS SARSAT RTCM standard of -40 degrees. In fairness to the unit though, how often do you come across those temps and the unit should be close to your body anyways.
I have to say that I am still in favour of PLBs
