Quiz time eh Monte
Question number one: Which US based metal detector manufacturer was the first to give us a simultaneous multi frequency detector?

Fisher Labs, Los Banos, the CZ series

Quote
Monte
Question number two: There were at least five different models of those SMF detectors, and who was the lead engineer in that design?

The one and only Mr. Dave Johnson Engineer extraordinaire thumbs up

Monte
Question number three: White's Electronics produced their first SMF detector about two decades ago and it was mainly designed by their engineer, Mark Rowan. But there were some things he needed help on in that design and, at that time, there was an engineer who was contracted to work on a project that resulted in a new gold machine and a new 3 filter multi-purpose detector and that engineer gave Mark some help on that new SMF model. Who was that engineer?

Likewise Engineer Dave Johnson

Monte
Question number four: That same well-known design engineer finished his contracted project with White's Electronics, so which company did that engineer go to work for taking his SMF design knowledge with him?

Dave packed his bags and went South to FTP

It's been 20 years since the DFX and it leaves me wondering, why has that SMF Talent not produced anything from Fisher, Teknetics or Bounty Hunter?

Yep, through the years and sitting here today it makes me wonder.confused smiley

You are not alone Monte......
A new CZ in an ergonomic friendly package would be a sweet detector in my opinion.
Cheers,

Very true, FTP is a much bigger business than just metal detectors.

Rich, the AQ Ltd. is out of my budget and not what I want or need.
