The Last of the Mohicans

There are only three countries left that have not officially adopted the metric system: Liberia, the United States, and Myanmar. In October of 2013 Myanmar announced it plans to make the switch.

What's that mean for terrier digging? It means the old and newer LRT Deben locators may be the last ones that will measure in feet.

But maybe not.  The truth is that most locators are sold in the U.K.and the U.S., and most of the folks in the U.K. are not entirely enamored with the metric system, and many still use pounds, ounces, feet, and inches.  All the terrier locator collars that measure distance in meters are adaptations of avalanche collars used for skiiing.
