Thanks for the update Larry. My order was placed on the 9th- so looks like next week for mine.
Still using one of your early paddles as my favorite.
I thought your call looked familiar. Glad to hear you still use the paddle.
I still make them on a limited basis since I retired last year.
So far I am still impressed with the Sark110. I also have an AIM 4170 and I like it a lot.
It is a pain to drag it outside even though I do use a netbook computer with it.
The Sark has everything I want in a small handheld device and it updates/rescans pretty darn fast.
I have been doing a lot of experimenting with small mag loops and it works great for that application.
If it works tight in for small loops it should work well with about any type of antenna.
I did make a screen protector for it today as the screen cover is plastic and not glass.
My only complaint so far and it is very minor is that it is hard to hold onto the BNC connector to
install or remove the connector on the other side. I plan to make a small knurled piece to install
on the connector so I can get a grip on it.
This is a very minor complaint and easily fixed in a variety of ways.
There is tons of info on displayed the screen and many options for what is displayed in the scans.
It is easy and fast to change functions and very easy to understand how to use it.
So far I give it a five thumbs up.
