I thought it was time to spoil the techies with a picture of surveying in the Valley of the Kings on 19th February 2009 taken by Rachel Cline. I'm sure somebody can add a comment explaining exactly what this shows? Please?

Oh and somebody may identify the bit of path by the map behind?

I think they are conducting a electrical resistivity survey, mapping subsoil features, but I am not familiar with the particular kit they are using.

Could the equipment be a thumper (acoustic radar)? Perhaps the place is the west side of KV-10. I can not be sure without more photos.

Forgot to mention that both operators have jumped off the ground. One is standing between the 2 devices.

This is a photo of the recent radar survey that the Dash Foundation have conducted using a 200 MHz radar. H. Poirot

Not convinced Monsieur,
Dash have a GSSI SIR-2000, a 200MHz rader - big red box with a handle which has been seen in earlier pictures of the cliff side excavation.

My money is still on resistively.

My guess is that it's telefunken U47. With leather.
