That's the same model that I picked up on eBay for $76.  I'm told that the dual-frequency models don't have the same range as the new single-frequency ones, but hey ... it puts out on the right frequency (OK, I'm *not* touching that one, strong though the temptation to do so may be), and it's certainly better than none. It's also compatible with any other beacon out there.  So, I was convinced that $76 sure beat $300 for the number of times that I actually need one.
