adjusting a weak link


LawnSite Fanatic
i have stated many times that i consider the headset of the 521 and some of the older armada products the weak link of the receiver.

the ground is too wet to work today so i did a little tune up on 2 of my 521 receivers. first off i prolly should tell you that if you do any work on any locator yourself, most companies won't touch them afterward.

the first 2 pics i was trying to show how loose the connection was at the jack, the others simply show me gently pressing the tip retainer into its original position after removing the headset tip from the jack.

mine worked well afterward and used it to demonstrate an induction technique over the phone to a friend in another state, he said that he could hear the slope and null quite well. :)
