Thanks steve,

I was confused by the waterproof sensor as to what was in the sensor and
what was that other circuit board shown in the Ebay listing?  Is that just
a micro do do something with the time pulse you get back, or does the $7
just get the sensor and it works like you describe as is.  We would tnen
add a packet generator cpu, but we can all do that.

So can you clarify what are the wires coming out of the sealed unit?  and
what is the circut card shown?
