LRL500 Long Range Locator "Generator"


This unit is for seasoned/professional dowsers and users of LRL/MFD systems. Free training on the unit is offered. The price is for the unit only NO RODS. 


LRL/MFD systems are very controversial. Yet there are many people that use LRL/MFD systems. Before you purchase this unit or any LRL/MFD unit you should understand that dowsing using generators has not been proven to work by science. Still many use and locate objects with generators and dowsing. The LRL500 is a frequency generator with a range from 8.7hz to 500hz. I offer a 10 day trail with a 15% restocking fee on my LRL units. If you have any questions you can reach me from the contact page. This unit is designed for the dowsing response.


Before you buy this unit or any long range unit please read this.

EWC and Target Tracking

Free Software Updates under Warranty: Because the heart of the LRL500 is a programmable micro-controller, updates are free under warranty. I listen to my customers. I have increased EWC from 5 to 10 because some could not cancel certain targets. Free update means, if  IC or EWC would have to be changed to improve performance, you don't have to buy another unit, just update with the new firmware, saving you money!


Current Update . . . . . . . .(EWC) Weight Factor increase from 5 to 10. This will be the last update on EWC.


The list of metal/minerals are: Gold, Silver, Copper, Tin, Iron, Diamond, Emerald and Misc. setting. If you want to change to your own list, let me know when ordering.


Image Correction (IC) is a signal unlike the standard MFD waveforms. Designed from test done on body response, users report lines moving/correcting to the true target area. IC helps you not to be affected by false images also known as coupons/matrixes or ghost signals. Adjust for changing earths magnetic field.


Electronic Weight Cancel (EWC) is used to knock out the remaining rings near and around the target area. Remember rings cause metals/minerals to mimic the true target. By adjusting the EWC up the remaining ring/rings will collapse into the target area. If you keep adjusting up, the image of the target will cancel completely depending on the size/mass. Adjusting to the point before canceling the target image, you leave in a very small area above the target and increased pin-pointing greatly.


Product Reviews






I will tell you this, I own 3 MFD's and have used several others and I would rank Tim's unit at the top of the list. His IC is unbeatable from what I have seen and he has a weight check that is simply the best I have used, built right into the unit itself. I performed a test about three weeks ago that will make a believer out of any one. I have a Silver target buried in my yard "about three years" now. I set Tim's MFD. fifty feet from the target. I set the unit on 86hz the old Silver frequency. I measured 13 feet to the left of the target and drove a copper rod; I drove another one at 68 feet to the right of the target. I set the unit on square wave and let it set for 5 minutes. I went about 15 feet out from the MFD and walk around it. Guess what, I picked up all three targets. The two copper rods and the real Silver target. The copper rods reacted like silver with the MFD on square wave. That explains to me why I have dug so many empty holes in the past. I went back to the MFD and switch it over to IC and waited about 5 minutes then walked around the unit again. This time I had only one target the real one and it was dead on the Silver. If you get a chance to use one of Tim's units try this. I must say, I still have a ways to go before I'm an expert using MFD's, but l like what I see in Tim's unit. I do know that then you are looking for treasure you need all the different tools you can get your hands on. No one instrument does it all.

Best of luck. Bob B

I have used several different units made by different manufacturers. Up until Tim's unit, they would all put you in the general area of amorality’s in the ground, iron gold silver lead copper and other common metals that you find around sites. What I‘m finding with Tim's unit, I am able to knock a lot of the junk targets with the IC and draw the rings around the target down to a small area. With the weight check determine if it is what I am interested in or just something with traces of the metal that I am trying to find. As of yet I haven't located the big one but really feel like this is the all around best thing that I have ever got my hands on. Out of all of the MFD and LRL’s that I have accumulated over the years this is my choice tool if I had to just use one.


Good luck, Glenn



Mr. Tim Williams


This letter is to comment and to give you my opinion on your Long Range Locating equipment. For more than 20 years, my associates from Mexico and I have been purchasing every conceivable piece of equipment on the market that claims to be able to locate buried metal from a distance. We have been ripped off and led to believe that we had the ultimate in technology in these gadgets. The manufacturers apparently believed they had the right stuff. Well, they didn’t. After more than $50,000.00 spent on these units, we finally realized there was nothing on the market that would help us on our search for treasure. Only a few months ago, we came across someone that had one of your locators. After a demonstration, we became very curious about its performance. This person allowed us to try it. Needless to say, we became seriously interested and obtained one of them. This was a very simple unit that didn’t include many of the latest features. After learning how to use it efficiently, we returned to Mexico. This time I could not stay in Mexico for more than 3 or 4 days. The first site we visited had a solid, credible story behind it. Early in the morning we began the search with the LRL. In the first couple minutes we had the first indication of a target at the bottom of a small hill in front of us. This was a wooded, undeveloped area. For some weird reason we all listened to the suggestions of one of the men in our group. He insisted that we should conduct the search on the hillside mainly. I thought this was crazy and without sense. The rest of the people went along with this suggestion. So, I didn’t say much and continued with the search on the hillside using a deep seeking electronic locator that proved to be defective in the end. Sure enough, we found nothing the first day. We were looking in the wrong spot. The next day we returned to the site. They thought our LRL was another one of the many fakes we used in the past. We didn’t try to use it anymore at this site. When nothing was found, the other guys decided that there was nothing to be found there. By this time, I was furious and without the desire to continue hunting. Our LRL gave us a positive target line to the wooded area at the bottom of the hill. It never made sense to me, why anyone in his right mind would think that those people of the past would choose a hillside to bury a treasure. This was insane, I thought. The following day, against my will, we moved to another site. The next 3 days, the results were the same. Nothing! I finally realized I had joined forces with the wrong group. These individuals had no experience in this kind of hunting. This type of search requires a lot of discipline. A large treasure usually takes a longer time to locate and identify positively. This particular site was free from metal contamination and other interfering things that would give the false signals to the electronic locators. This site was very far from populated areas. (The most ideal type of site) A few weeks after my return from Mexico, I received a call from my friend there. He was one of the men in our group and one of my best friends of many years and of many adventures in hunting in the past. With a very depressed voice, he informed me that a couple people that saw us doing our search at the first site, came a few days later with metal detectors and conducted a long and extended search of the entire area. They found 3 clay pots the size of 5-gallon pails full of gold coins. They found this treasure in the wooded area, exactly where your LRL had pointed. The estimated value of this treasure is believed to be more than 5 million dollars. Needless to say, I am a very frustrated man. But one thing is for sure: I am surer now than ever that I can find one of these treasures and I will continue trying, using my expensive experience on the past. I am a man of limited resources, with family responsibilities. Right now I am unemployed due to a lay-off for lack of work. I want to return to Mexico very badly and continue hunting for large treasures. Perhaps you know someone with the necessary economic conditions that would be interested in financing a man like me to go to Mexico and hunt full time. I would make a legal contract with this person to assure him a generous share of anything we find. There are many people out there that blow money like crazy in casinos and other pleasures that would probably be inspired to participate in this unique adventure. I am serious Mr. Williams. If you know of anyone that would be interested in being part of this project, please let me know. All I can tell you is that your LRL equipment has shown me the potential it has to find buried metal from a distance. There are thousands of treasure sites in Mexico, waiting to be found by disciplined and dedicated persons. This is a lot of work that not many people would be willing to undertake. This is also a very dangerous occupation, especially when you finally find a treasure. There are many, many people out there willing to kill for a multi million dollar treasure. In my case, I am fortunate enough to have the necessary elements in Mexico to do this kind of work with a minimum of risk. I am of that culture myself and I have at my disposal the necessary protection needed to do a safe and effective job. Please let me know when you add improvements to your LRL if you do. I wish to have the latest, of course. So far, you have an effective piece of equipment with the promise to do the job precisely. Thank you.


Best regards, Miguel Estupinan



Mr. Williams,


I’ve been using MFD’s sense 1982 production as well as self created. I have probably owned over 20 types of LRLs from several different inventors and worked on countless treasure sites so I know the failings as well as the attributes of most. Your LRL 500 unit is certainly one of the best once it is properly tuned. As an example; I know where a target has been in the ground for 150+ years and the closest an off the shelf unit can get to it is one mile. Taking the LRL 500 to the site and switching on for a few minutes; I get a reading exactly in the same place that 24 years of experience has led me to using proprietary techniques. Quite impressive! If I was you Tim; I would not sell too many of these units or I would take them off the market. You are on to something here. The EWC is one of the better ones I have seen and the IC does as you say but I find you don't need IC if you are "strobe tuned" perfectly. Congratulations on one "hot" unit.




EWC Reviews 


Tim, just wanted to let you know how the EWC on the LRL 500 is working out for me. Just before the big snow that we just had, I have been working a site that I have been trying to narrow down out of about a 2000 acre area for several years. It supposedly consist of a cache that was put down in the mid 1800's. All that we really had to go on was the story and the fact that some of the descendants of the person involved in the story came to this area a few years ago looking for it but could not locate it from the instructions that they had, since there was a problem of knowing exactly were the old house was on this 2000 acre was located back in the mid 1800's. A few years ago I thought I had it located with another LRL and it did come up at a area where there was evidence of an old home site that is no longer there. Any way to make a long story shorter, after using the 500 with the square wave and IC on the 500 and then using the EWC this site has shifted from the area where we dug, to a area about 1000 yards to the west of our site which we dug at. This only happened after going through the steps of using the square wave, then IC, then applying the EWC only then did the signal line start to shift to the now area of interest. It is quite surprising how the line shifts as the EWC is turned up until the target is knocked out, then turning it back down until the target comes back in. It is really surprising how the signal line shifts from the original area of interest. As soon as the snow gets off I will work this location out with my partner and we will make a pin point of the target area and run the logger on it and see what it shows. If the logger doesn't show anything we will run a resistivity unit on it and see what shows up. So far the locations that we have made the logger has showed up a target with in 2 foot of our pin point. So this will very interesting and I will keep you informed of our process. I really think that the secret of success with the 500 is the strobe tuning of the unit to the person using the unit, keep up the good work, 


Thanks Glenn



Hi Tim


Here is my report on the New EWC Up Grade for the LRL 500 MFD.

I tested it on two un-dug targets; I have located before with the LRL500. These are large targets. Before the up-grade I thought they were 4 targets, I had 2 signal lines using IC with EWC for each, this with the EWC control turned up to factor of ten. After the up-grade I was able to move the two lines, which were about three feet apart at 20 feet from the MFD, to one line. One of the targets moved 90 feet from the first reading, the second moved about 30 feet. If I had dug the first target areas I know they would probably been empty holes. The weather has turn bad here and will not be able to test any more until spring. Then I will use the ARC-GEO Logger over these areas to map a grid, and check with computer software, with my two-box detector, which will reach four to six feet on Quart Jar size objects. Then if I do not pick up anything with the Two-Box and ARC-GEO Logger, I will use my Resistivity Meter to go deeper.

What most people do not realize is, with an MFD when you get signal lines they are most likely not going to the target itself. But to the outer ring of the energy field around the target. And the longer a target is buried the larger this energy field is. You will most likely have three signal lines to a large target, one to the target itself, and, one to each side of the energy field. So if you dig each line they most likely will be empty holes.

This is were, IC with EWC comes in. Set up your LRL500 using a frequency that is tuned to your body for the metal you are looking for. Start out on square wave, walk around your LRL500 about 10 feet out, marking each signal line you come to, with a marker flag, Go out another 5 feet, do the same. Now switch to IC and be sure the EWC is turned down all the way. Mine is set at a factor of two, when it is first turned on. Walk around the LRL500 again, the same as you did on square wave. Mark the signal lines, did any move? You will probably see the two outside signal lines of the energy field start to move to the center target line. It may also move some, but not as much as the two outside lines. If your lines are very far apart, move the EWC about 50 on the dial at a time. Keep walking around the LRL500 marking the signal lines and pulling up the marker flags from the last reading each time. Keep going up on the factor scale until you get an area with all three lines about three foot across, Then slow down, and turned the EWC just a little at a time, until you have one signal line. Be very careful, this new upgrade is very powerful if you go too far, you will lose your signal line. So, turn it up slowly when you get close to one line. After I get it to one Signal line and, just before the signal starts to go out, I turn the EWC back 10 to 20 marks on the scale. I then have a strong signal to work with, going on in to the target.

Next year when I have tested these two areas with everything I have, and if all proves out, I will dig. Will let you know how things turn out. This is the Method I use.

Remember in Treasure Hunting no One tool does it all. I like to confirm the test area with all the equipment I have before I dig.


Best of Luck,   Bob
