Unless you have experience with SMT, I discourage anyone from working with it. It can be time consuming, fraught with errors (that leaves you with a non-working board), and broken/burnt parts. If there is anyway to stick with through-hole, that's the way to go. Honestly, if I were to make a design that I wanted others to be able to build, I'd stick with through hole parts in the entirety of the design.

Ok. When you have the detector completely built, post in the forums pictures and let us know how it works. What design are you using?

Cool! Can't wait to see the pics.

I noticed you already have few commercial detectors - Are you making just for an experiment?

Hi Nc,
Did you use an SMT soldering station or just a normal soldering rod?
I am planning on buying a good soldering station.
