Hi all

Here is my latest VLF detector and although this is the third board I'm still not satisfied with it (Should I really post the other two?) any ways this one worked straight away, turned on the power and it worked, I must have done something right for a change. Next step will be to reduce the size of the board possibly will use some SMC to do that, using a four sided board would contribute a lot to the reduction of the board but alas I would not be able to do it my self.

All the best to ya all
Xavier

Don't reduce it too much. You need a case big enough to hold the batteries.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

This is the TGSL with the two tone mod.

My problem is that I can't find a case that looks good and has the right dimensions. I would need to reduce the board by about 15mm from left to right and 10mm from top to bottom.

No I designed this board my self that's why the two tone is on the board and not on a pig back board.
