Coupled Coil Metal Detector

Posted on Apr 12, 2012

A Coil Coupled Operation Metal Detector made from readily obtainable components and using an ordinary medium receiver as a detector. The metal detector shown here may well represent a new genre. At any rate, after some exposure, it is regarded as such by those who have seen it. It is based on a standard transformer coupled oscillator (TCO) - hence the name Coil Coupled Operation (CCO) Metal Detector.

Although requiring a BFO (in this case provided by a Medium Wave radio), it differs from a typical BFO detector in that its performance far outstrips that of BFO. Also, unlike BFO, it is dependent on the balance of two coils to boost sensitivity. It also
