Interval timers

Post by Scott »

Usually one can circle the scanner to manage it. Recently I found myself scanning a small power station situated near a woodland creek. It was a lovely place to scan, but difficult with steep, slippery embankments and abundant vegetation. With tight tripod placements, there were few (close) places to remove oneself from the line-of-sight path of the scanner. I couldn't see or hear the beep once I found a suitable tree to hide behind. I've tried many timers from smart phones, stop watches, or just a wristwatch to time the scan duration, but none was perfect. I'm looking at windup darkroom timers, but they are all too big or don't have a ringer. Vintage Interval timers used for timing x-rays (see below) look promising, but are larger than I'd like, though they do sport a hanging ring that could be used with the tripod. It's the short time ranges that I like: 1-10 minutes, and a ringer. No batteries. What are others using when scanning positions are too tight to be close to the equipment?
