Analog and Digital transmit identically, it's only the recieve that is different (old 2.2Khz and dual frequency beacons like the F2 nonwithstanding).
If you aren't going to practice a whole lot, get the tracker. It's the easiest to learn.
If you understand flux lines and will practice a whole lot get an analog SOS or Ortovox F1 (I love my F1).
Anyone else look at the Peips DSP and Barryvox.
I was not overly impressed with the Peips Optifind 457.
Remember, beacons only work in pairs, otherwise they are expensive corpse locators (which is still nice, probe lines suck).
Follow backcountry safe travel protocols, take an avalanche course, practice often, and be smart.
It is what I would do if it were me. It's not me and neither are you.
