How long do you take to set up your ground penetrating radar unit before a survey? 1 minute? 10 minutes? 2 hours?

What is the correct amount of time you should take?

It varies depending on the site conditions, the amount of time you have, and the project budget…BUT, most of you are probably not taking enough time calibrating your instrument properly.

In this video I discuss some of the benefits of taking more time during the set up process and encourage you to take a few extra minutes to increase the likelihood of success on your projects.

In the comments below tell me the longest you ever took calibrating your GPR unit! is an online training platform for Ground Penetrating Radar that helps civil engineers, utility locators, and others learn about GPR through fun and engaging courses and coaching.
