.Lragments of a city, in a piace where uothing
.rrau-made should exist, spanning nearly eight
.quare rniles of a deep-ocean plain off Cuba's
rirestern tip.
'lNhat we have here is a mystery" said
Paul Weinzweig of Advanced Digital Cotrnunications, a Canadian corlpany that is
napping the ocean bottom of Cuba's territorial waters under contract with the governuenr of Fresident Fidel Castro.
"Nature couidnt have built anything so
syrnmetrical," Weinzweig said, running his
linger over sonar printouts aboard his ship,
lied up atawharf in Havanaharbor. 'This isn't
natural, but we don't know what it is."
The company's main mission is to hunt for
shipwreclis filled with gold and jewels, and to
locate potentially lucrative oil and natural gas
reserves in deep water that Cuba does not
have the rneans to explore.
Tieasure hunting has become a growth
industry in recent years as technology has
irnproved. allowing rrore precise exploration
and easier recoyery from deeper ocean sites.

off Cuba be Atlantis?
Advanced Digital operates trom the Ulises, a
260-foot trawler that was converted to a research vessel for Castro's government by the
late French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau.
Since they began exploration three yearq
ago with sophisticated side-scan sonar aud
computerized global-positioning ecluipment,
Weinzweig said they have mapped severai
large oii and gas deposits and about 20 ship
wrecks sitling beneath anciert shipping lanes
where hundreds of old wrecks are believed to
be resting. The most historically important so
far has been the USS Maine, which exploded
and sank in l{avana harbor in 1898, an event
that ignited the Spanish-American War:
I*1972, the ship was raised trom the harborfloor bythe U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
ard towed out into deeper water fbur miles
from the Cuban shore, where it was scuttled.
Strong currents carried the lVlaine away frorn
the site, and its precise location remained
unknown until Ulises' sonar spotled it two
years ago.
Then, by sheer serendipily, on a summer
tlay in 2AAA, as the Uiises was iowing its sonar
back and forth across the ocean like someone
mowing a lawn, the unexpected rock formations appeared on the sonar readouts. That
startled Wbinzweig and his partner and wife,
Paulina Zelitsky, a Russian-born engineer.
The discovery immediately sparked
speculation aboutAtlantis, the fabled lost city
first described by Plato in 360 BC. Weinzweig
and Zelitsky were careful not to use the A
word and said that more study was needed
before a conclusion could be reached.
The tall tales table will resume at this meeting,
Please bring finds found during the
months of November and December.

A HISTIIRY of METAL DETECTORS

story Richard Howe, photos courtesy FRL

,ulyone lvho has ever used a metal detector

thrilt of filding an o1d coin, a relic, or
nugget of gold, owes a debt of thanks to Dr.

had the
a

rard Fisher and, of all things, a dirigible.

In the 19zo's, Dr. Fisher was working as a
esearch engineer in Los Angeles and obtained
he first patent ever issued on aircraft radio de_
tion finders. LIis work attracted the interest
another farnous scientist, Dr, Albert

nstein. After meeting u,ith Dr. Fisher,
instein enthusiastically and comectly pre_
icted the worlcl wide use of radio detection

ders in the air, on land and at sea.
During the 19gO's Dr. Fisher was hired by the U.S.

Naly
install a radio detection finder aboard the dirigible, th!

SS IVIacon. It was aboard the Macon that Dr. Fisher discov_
red that large metal buildines and mineralized mountain-s
celled out the instruments diion finding capabilities leadg him to the discovery of the

first metal rietector:
Building upon his discovery,
: Fisher founded Fisher Rech Laboratory in r93 1, in a

tallascope", a rugged, easy to
metal detector. By todays

By 1996, sales had increased
the point wher.e the garage was

longer large enough. Fisher

search Laboratory was moved

in palo AIto.

thereafter, Dr. Fisher was

nted a patent for his
etallascope." The first patent
issued for a metal detector.
e "Metallascope: was soon nicknamed the M_Scope,
and as

h, became an accepted standard fbr all types of electronic
detection: geologists located o.", t.uuru.e hunters

utility companies located buried pipes, lum_

agencies used

it to locate abandoned

weapons and evi_

rgsg, just prior to World War II, Fisher moved to
an
larger building in Palo AIto. During World War II and
tIl subsequent Korean conflict the company was called
upon
to contribute its technical competen"e to the war
efTbrt.

With the increasing popularity of the
with Fishers patent
rights expiring, numerous competitors began producing similar equipment. Due to a concentrated fbcus on
technological advancement - and in
particular, by keeping close contact
with countless loyal users to utilize
their vast field experience in the design of new models - Fisher has uraintained its position of solid leatlership.
In 1961, Fisher nroved to
Belmont, California and in 196?, Dr..
Fisher finally retired, having firmly
established his name in the annals of
electronic history. The company continued to groq and in 19?4, \4,ith its
new president, Jim Lewellen, uroved
to downtown Los Banos, Califomia.
During the next eb years, under Jims
dedicated direction, the company
rvouiri grow bv leaps and bounds, producing detecting instruments 1br the
hobby and industrial markets which
continue to set the standard today. In
r99O, Fisher built a spacious, modern
manufacturing plant in the Los Banos
Industrial Park, where the worldt

Today, Fisher, under the leadership of Roger Cimino,

crime scene investigator on the hit television series ,,CSLLooking toward the next zo years, and in celebration of their
Toth anniversary, Fisher has just released the special edition
