I think Lupine Adventure (based in the Peak District or Leeds) were offering to lend some this winter. I'll see if I can find the link.

Edit: Here's what they posted on Facebook, with a picture of the unit.
'If anyone would like to borrow one of our Spot Satellite trackers for a bit of extra security on their winter trips this year then get in touch. Not only do they track you they have buttons that can summon help via satellite communications (no mobile signal necessary) should you run into trouble. We won't post them so you'll have to be local to Leeds or be able to swing by on your way to the mountains.'

Satellite trackers and Avalanche Transceivers are not the same thing. Trackers use a satellite signal to give your lat. & Long. position on a website.
Transceivers are for finding your companion if their unlucky enough to get buried by an Avalanche.
