I just got my new Simplex on Friday and I still haven't had much of a chance to use it. My wife and I had the grandkids over the weekend and we decided to take them to the park so they could fly their kites and I could play with the detector. I spent the first hour and a half getting the kites flyable, so no detector time . After the kids got their kites up about a thousand feet or so, they decided that they were tired of the kites and immediately turned them over to my wife and I to bring them down. Again, no detector time . by the time that my wife and I got the kites down, it was time to leave the park, so no time to detect . The rest of the weekend was spent helping my wife with the grandkids doing yard work and working on my daughter's car. I guess that I shouldn't complain since I don't see the grandkids very often and there will be plenty of opportunity to go in the future.
