Decided to build my next detector. The BandidoIIuMax posted on geomax.

Using braided Vero board. She's going to be beeg.

Had a learning curve catching up on my electronics.  Some I c 's was flipped upside down but managed to get a nice configuration to fit. I could have crammed alot more to make space. Maybe I'll do a second one. Dreaming of having a nice oscilloscope now.

Great to see more home built detectors being "born".  Louis down in Saldanha has built quite a few.  Will follow your progress with interest. :)

Here's the current progress. The bandido halfway done. Jumper wire mayhem.

Considering a redesign now that I have a physical model.

Hopefully all goes well.

Using freeware expressPCB and expressSCH.

Has a few quirks. Would have loved to work on Altium software.

Die komponente werk so R700 uit al. Nognie so selfvertroud om iemand se geld te vat nie al moet ek maar krap vir sente op die oomblik. Sodra ek weer werk het. Bou ek vir jou ook een.

Sorry I took so long.

Finally got back to this. This was my second attempt and I finally finished with a working unit.
Decorated the box with some finds. The little plate in the front was my first attempt at nickel plating.
