I disagree on using the internal winding measurements. It is just common-sense to rely on the outside physical shape so you can better tell how it might fit in and around places you search, and can easily compare with other offered search coils.

I contend that you would want to know both. I understand you are concerned with the overall physical size, since you poke around in all sorts of weird places smiling bouncing smiley

I'm interested in the actual coil dimensions. You could put a 4" coil into an 11" housing. If you bought it based on the 11" outer dimension, you would not be getting what you wanted, nor would it behave as you expected.

And you're only referring to the measurement of the Tx winding. What about the Rx winded size? that's equally important.

True enough. But at least in the concentric the field is determined by outer dim. of the Tx coil, which is usually on the outside. I'd like to know all the details, if possible. Knowing how certain coils and dimensions react, it would be possible to make an informed choice when buying various coils.

And even better, the weather is improving and in 1-2 weeks we ought to be able to get into 'Rippville' for some old townsite hunting. Gregg & I will check out the conditions and let you know. We can do some compassion testing when we meet up there, too.

Yes, I'm looking forward to that.

I updated my above post and withdrew the money offer. N/T
