Still for sale... Both potential buyers had other bills.
After talking with the other BC folks, I realize the buyer must have a massive amount of trust in me to purchase this "used" beacon. I can tell you it's totally new, not reconditioned and fully-functional, but do you want your life or your buddy's life to hang on my word?
If that hasn't freaked you out, I do have email evidence from a rep at Ortovox that it was replaced, and the pictures show the beacon has not been used (the replaced 3+ was also green apple and smudged to heck in one season). It's a calculated risk for sure, and I'd love to sell it locally, but it's proving to be difficult. So here's the previous post again:
I sent my old Ortovox back under warranty and they sent me a brand new 3+. I turned it on when I got it to make sure it worked (figured it would, but didn't want ANY surprises).
I had to replace it while I waited on the warranty, so this one has got to go. It's $350 + tax, so I figure $200 and "split" the shipping. Paypal preferred.
