Interesting. Thanks for forwarding.

I've tried a variety of "winding" strategies, but without
success. When I talked with NCE's technical support fellow
the other day, he was pretty skeptical about the feasibility
of 25' blocks. He suggested that the only viable option was
installing a POT on the BD20, which I haven't yet
attempted. In the meantime, I'm double-checking all my
wiring. My experience (successfully) building a test-bed
tells me that it's all too easy to goober up connections.

If you haven't tried it already, try putting more than one
turn through your BD20. Literally just loop it around and
go through it again. This increases sensitivity of the
BD20. I don't think you need multiple detectors in a
block. Check the BD20 instructions for multiple turns
