REI, Evo, Cripple Creek Backcountry and other specialty stores nationwide and online at amazon.com, backcountry.com, snowbigdeal.com, jagaloon.com and specialty websites.  Stop depending on this faulty transceiver and contact Backcountry Access at 1-800-670-8735 or via email at bcatracker4@backcountryaccess.com to receive a prepaid mailer to return our unit for a free replacement transceiver.
