    Need Help Guys Asap

    May want to check and see if there is a build up of dirt, black sand under the skid plate. That can affect the 2300 on small gold.

    Ga-10 Guide Arm Question

    Hi Kiwijw, I am the other like in that post since I don't have a QED. And I do swing a GPZ and use the ga10 and would never call any person names for using a different setup then I do.

    Should There Be An Off Topic Forum?

    Well Steve as you know there are lots of prospector forums on the net and I still do look at them from time to time, the reason I really like yours is its on topic most of the time. I belong to several forums that are on topics I have an interest in and really don't care too spend a lot of time to read on why Trump did this or Russians were involved in that when I am looking for the best skid plate for a detector. If I wanted to know about Trump or the Russians I would join a forum for those type of topics. This is why I like it hear, good information in the shortest amount of time.
  7. Thanks Steve,, time for me to do a little research now. :) Since the 7000 can be setup to run 2 wm12's a right and left wireless ear bud would be separate connections if I can find the right protocols.
  8. Wireless earbuds are out on the market now and I am wondering is it possible to replace the wm12 with a Bluetooth or wifi set of earbuds? Is there a spec on the wm12 wireless conection someplace? This would help out a lot with line of site issue I have sometimes when I'm using headphones with the wm12.
  9. I live in the Southern California just north of Los Angeles. Its been HOT, real hot the last few weeks and I wanted to get out detecting but the idea of hunting new patches in air temps of 100 degrees or more just did not seem appealing until this morning. We have had a few wild fires spreading around the Los Angeles area and even thou they are many miles from me, the wind was blowing the smoke in my direction. That was enough to get me driving out to the gold fields. I arrived at the area I wanted to start swinging my zed and decided to change up my settings. Im a smooth threshold person, cant stand a chattery threshold, but since I was going to be covering old ground I decided to turn up the settings as far as I could and see what happens Sometimes it pays to step out of your comfort zone, 2.26g .56g .05g

    Snakes Are Out

    Was working one of my go to areas in the Southern Calif desert and managed to get 4 little ones for one gram total. Just as was packing up my gear I almost stepped on this little guy out for a later afternoon crawl.
  13. When you first get into this hobby the standard advice is to buy from a local dealer and stay away from the detector online box store. You will hear about training which is true. A good price which depends on how good you are at wheeling and dealing.(dealer this is the bottom line the manufacture will let me sell it at, and your buddy get the same detector from the same dealer at a much lower price) The small dealer can help with warranty issues. Both of mine somehow are not covered and I have to pay for them...Jason has already said it in another post. Why do we need independent dealers anymore?
