    PDS-2 anybody know anything about it?

    I thought I'd asked before but a search for PDS-2 finds nothing so it's worth a try.
    It's old. It was on Ebay a couple of years ago.
    Scubapro UK didn't come up with anything.
    Personal Dive Sonar -2
    Anybody know anything about it?
    I've fixed it enough to turn on and display so I've lubed the O-rings and I'll take it down the pool tonight.
    If somebody said "I had one in 1066. I might have a manual somewhere..." that would be nice.

    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    The housing and layout looks identical to the Plastimo Echotest 2, although the one we have been using is yellow.



    We it for cave wall measurements. Works ok. The 'beam' isn't particularly narrow and it will pick up reflections from closer, small stuff.

    A manual here, not sure if it is the exact same thing :

    I had one of them, it was advertised as not working on eBay. Took a chance and it turned out to be a loose connection. I kept it for a while and then sold it on. Pretty straight forward, point and shoot. I used it a couple of times when the shot missed the wreck and it put me in the right direction. Point shoot, infinity, point shoot 30m and you have a direction to travel. It only works in water, it won’t work in air.
