Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

QED - GB a Triumph on hot ground

For those who missed it....

Quote

I've not been able to GB a Mono on this site regardless of the timings used on the 5000, ….  the depth sacrifice makes it a complete waste of time. .... Now the QED balances a Mono here without an issue, ...and it appears to detect target’s at a depth that we’ve missed ..   (YF, Finders QED p 34)

Some hot ground caused "a GPX to complain a bit, but the QED handled it easily. (Reg, Finders,)


Now I would call that a TRIUMPH for the QED over the 5000 (& models preceeding it) on GB on hot ground, wouldn't you?

..... common enemies make enemies become friends!...
we shouldn't have been forced to take up arms with words - we were compelled to defend ourselves make a stand here for what the QED symbolises*  (in tribute to PL, post Eureka).

Below shows a poor attempt at humour / distraction elsewhere from the QED facts

Musings (below) by a Finders fool, while sitting on an outdoor dunnie in the heat, is neither close to any truth nor helpfiul to prospectors. Readers & testers are onto the attributes of the QED already, no publicity required, just facts from tests without musings! Talk about a crumpet basher!

1. What if after Reg’s tests the QED turns out to be "nothing more than a useful beeper aimed at the budget/entry level (newbie prospector, who have) got all the time in the world (for a ) manual GB newbie. ….. "

Duhhh.... Smart prospectors & newbies learn from the GB info the QED gives with manual GB. Further, it balances where a 5000 won’t!  (Refer to what YF has found above.)

2. Bugs …. "needs someone to buy him out."

“Someone" may well buy him out, or “someone" may manufacture &/or sell the QED under licence, or licence to use his IP or … or … the possibilities are endless!  (I was told by Bugs that the QED DOES contain patented & licensed IP.)

But don’t worry, it works easily for the old & new prospector alike, without a Gold Tax.

3. "No doubt the first thing to be addressed will be the archaic manual ground balance and add some professional marketing…. exclusive of agenda driven supporters of the last ten years."

Hmmmmm "archaic GB" eh? ….. so funny when the old timers & sensible prospectors can use it when a 5000 won't GB on such hot ground! Combined with rugged electronics at affordable prices they now know better.  

Expensive professional BS (called marketing) is not required to add to costs when word-of-mouth & reports do the job. No sharelholders to please, just prospectors.

* This forum’s primary "agenda" was always to support & defend new & affordable MDs like the QED

BugWiskers,

Looks like your brainchild is a great success! Congrats!

May I ask a technical question please, for which it goes without saying, that NO answer is expect answer if it gives away any of your IP?

As you know, I think I understand the ML Smooth patent (and of course, take it for granted you are not infringing it). But wow, the QED is reported to have even lower ground noise than Smooth AND excellent depth! Finding gold deeper than extant detectors in well-worked areas is all about target signal to ground noise ratio, something which you have clearly cracked. (Obviously this is not the case in bulldozed ground, nor areas that have had none or few detectors pass over it.) Even more amazing, the QED produces low ground noise where other detectors produce impractically severe ground signals. How the heck have you achieved this truly landmark breakthrough, especially given that other BIG $ companies are battling to do the same? Seriously awesome! I am amazed others have not noted the immense significance of this!

Thanks.

The QED GB method was posted in this forum back in April 2016. It uses a combination of the work/lapsed patents of Eric Foster, Chapman & Howells, and Dr George Paltoglou.

I believe the improvement over prior art is due to the Bipolar Integrating ADC and the use of 4 extra stages of LPF using class D techniques that don't suffer phase lag to drive both VCA and VCO. This disclosure creates my copyright.

The QED circuit being much simpler(relatively few components) also likely contributes to a  lower noise  ie better S/N than other comparable detectors. The patent applied for front end  may also play a part.

Why would anyone now want to buy an sdc2300 when they can have a QED at about 1/2 the price and use a range of mono coils from say 8"-24" rather than being stuck with an 8" tiddler coil on the SDC?

Based on some recent testing the QED can also detect some  tiny specimen gold (and some very minute bits) that the SDC 2300 can't!

All PI detectors that use an integrator as a null summation/averaging means as published by Eric Foster in 1968 will have a detection "hole" for any target that has the same decay characteristics as the ground. In the QED in MODE 1  a 70 * 70mm single sided copper PCB falls into that hole. There are other factors that come into play ie conductivity, profile area, thickness, orientation etc. I know someone who has a 2g Nugget that is just detectable at 2" with a well known brand.I haven't found a nugget yet that falls into the QED "hole" but I may have swung the coil over it over it !

Thanks very much for your reply BugWiskers.

I certainly do well-remember your post about the QED method (Rx demodulation following the short Tx pulse – Rx demodulation following  the long Tx pulse, with the long Tx pulse’s Rx window position acting as GB). This will not produce low ground noise of course, but because the proof is in the pudding; the QED does have extremely low ground noise, therefore you have developed some other super-cunning idea, that you have now kindly disclosed. I hope you have this break-through thoroughly patented?

I now expose my woeful ignorance; I am clueless why this important advance to the art, the LPF higher order & zero phase lag, should so improve to target-to-ground-noise ratio as is being witnessed by testers. Could you kindly please explain, and again of course, NO answer expected if this is confidential IP.

Thanks so much again! Looking forward to someday soon using a QED!

Why will the GB method as disclosed not produce low ground noise? Have you found the smooth patent number for me yet?

The answer is no because the TX voltage is constant regardless of the battery voltage.

There is one other constituent and it too is a part of the PI science taught by Eric Foster.
Perhaps when you find the "Smooth GB" patent number as request by Doug you would care to explain the differences between it and AU2010101019

Doug, the reasons why the QED demodulation scheme will give ground noise are given in my (long) attempt at explaining Smooth, as I understand it from the patent, but my understanding easily could be flawed! That description was my best shot and I put a lot of effort into it. Sorry, unable to contribute any further insight.

Moving forward…  why bother giving Smooth any further consideration? BugWiskers has successfully by-passed it with a superior method as witnessed by QED field reports; providing even less ground noise; working areas that Smooth cannot work at all; making Smooth irrelevantly obsolete!

Wish I knew the reasoning behind the QED A/D secret. Best of luck exploiting it!



(P.S. Please, I do not wish to get involved in politics. We all know that the ‘515 Smooth patent has been mentioned many times and that it was a ML/BW “issue.” Encourage you to look to the future, not the past. Suggest this will achieve far more. Thanks.)
