Whites Coinmaster 5000 D
« on: February 24, 2012, 01:04:37 am »
Go Up Go Down

Hi, I am retired from technology arena of Electronics, Computing and software. I have many hobbies including Ham Radio, Detecting and dreams of more but with very little time to attend to all.
I live near Melbourne but travel up to the tropics past many a good detecting area for Gold and Gems. I am also very close to the Victorian Goldfield's but as yet have never been out detecting I have an old Whites Coinmaster 5000 D which seems to work OK apart from needing to clean the potentiometers. I did pan for Gold in Creek beds some 37 years ago and found < $1 worth for a days work! If I ever get hooked on looking for Gold I will go and buy a nice new Detector. Now I should really build my own.

My idea detector would be a fully micro processor controlled with a USB interface & inbuilt Oscilloscope maybe even Bluetooth, so I could program all the bits that can be varied both on Transmit and Receive. I would also experiment with building different coils using my ideal detector to vary the parameters. The Bluetooth would allow me to do some signal processing on a laptop.

You will find me on Twitter as echoshack

Thanks  Tony

Welcome from New Mexico.

A detector like that would be a ambitious project for sure.

No Computers in my detector.

I like the one between my ears.
