    Good post. I carry one thing that may seem odd to some but its a high visibility reflective t-shirt. In my opinion it is a great passive signalling method and is so light and compact it fits in any pack. If I'm in need of rescue I just put it on and suddenly I stand out like a Trump supporter at a Hillary rally.

    Many years ago this topic came up as a bunch of us were drinking coffee .
    The only solution I remember was put forth by a ham radio operator .
    Built a really dirty transmitter that would cover as much bandwidth as possible and just make noise .
    They would find you even if they didn't like , just to shut the thing off.
    As I got to know him it became obvious where the idea was born . *Nobody * liked him.

    As a long time SAR volunteer I can tell you that signaling is very important. So easy to be over looked out in the woods. Anything to draw attention to yourself is good. Color, motion and sound.
