  • The antenna rod picks up the signal from the transmitter. It also points you in the direction of the line.
  • The meter indicates the strength of the peak signal (to the right) as well as the null signal (to the left).
  • The sensitivity knob allows you to precisely control the receiver's response to the signal and acts as a volume control and on-off switch.
  • The battery test button (red button on handle) takes the guesswork out of battery strength.
  • The near/far switch is used in the "far" position when starting the locate, then switched to "near" when the signal gets stronger.
  • In addition to watching the signal on the meter, you can hear it through the speaker or optional headphones.
