Re: No, don't WANT to see them croak. But, the real question is ...

A question I might ask. How many expert engineers in the field of metal detector design exist?

This is not a major in college, nor is it a subject probably even touched upon in electronic engineering. It is a real fringe technology.

Everything is going "software designed" these days. For transmitters you have a digital to analog converter. For receivers you have an analog to digital converter. A microprocessor does all the work now, in software, to determine the transmitter's frequency output and the receiver's analysis of the returning signal.

So where do you find an engineer that knows the principles involved in detecting good objects and rejecting trash objects with metal detection? Bet there aren't too many of those individuals floating around.

As in all engineering these days, it takes a team of engineers in specialized fields - the metal detection expert, the software engineer and the hardware engineer. Not cheap to build this team, especially for a market that is not real big. No wonder it is happening more frequently overseas!

So far as I'm aware, First Texas has grabbed the top engineers of the day in this field. They have the Teknetics, Bounty Hunter and Fisher brands. Who can White's draft?

My gut feeling (based on nothing really) is that White’s will be around for some time to come  N/T

I kind of agree, but at the same time disagree .at least a little.
