Thanks for the update Chris. I actually wrote to Les LaZar and received the
full 'draft' info sheet. I just may raid the piggy bank.
Here are some questions and musings to the list, though...
In the grand scheme of things, where does the Volksmeter fit? Certainly,
a beginner starts with the AS1 or Lehman (I have constructed both). Is the
next step an SG? How does the Volksmeter compare to a STM-8 that is
homebuilt? Or even to some of the sensors that Mr. Allan Coleman has made?
The info sheet states that the Volksmeter compares favorably (although
a tab less sensitive...and expensive) to a STS-1, which, I guess, is one of
the _de facto_ standards. I've read through the very nice PDF on the
Volksmeter at Larry's site, but I will admit that some of the information
has gone over my head. (Anyone else lost on some of the diagrams?) If I
can't understand all of it, wound (or should) that preclude someone (me)
from purchasing such a system? Maybe I'm just thinking way too much, but
certainly the dollar amount would warrant it.
