XP Deus Hunt Using Both HF Coils

Recommended Posts

Alright,
Thought I would share a few experiences I had today while detecting in the wild.
A 3 hour hunt with split time between round and elliptical HF coils.
Made a few finds using both coils.

I ran the hot program while actually hunting.  But used gold field program to check some targets.  Glad I did too. Payed off.
Here is pic.

Notice the bracelet with the name on it.  Gent is still a kicking and in his 80s now, bracelet likely lost back in late50s early 60s.  I showed it to his sister actually.
What about this bracelet portion?
I hope folks don't laugh here, what I am going to say, but it is true.
I was when I found this, in the same area where cut Spanish bit and half dime came from back in the summer.  I'll bet I have swung a Deus detector, others too over this bracelet buried over 300 times.  And I heard it likely every time but didn't dig.
Why?
Probably the same reason why is the same reason I wouldn't have dug again today except for the mighty gold field program.

I swept this bracelet (not knowing) with hot program and the signal I got, I would have bet the farm it was relic iron.  A very tight super high short blaring signal.  I actually remember getting this same tone here previously many times before.  Remember this place does infact have old relic iron smaller, medium sized and bigger all over.  

So in the past I was writing this target off as iron.
Today after I hit the target, I toggled over to gold field same freq run as my hot program Reactivty 2.5.  When Iistened to this target using gold field, a nice sounding signal smooth on the edges, usually a good giveaway it is infact nonferrous.  And sure enough it was.

One more target I dug  today I will discuss, and again using gold field gave me some additional Intel to actually recover find.
The old button in the pic.
I located it with round HF coil but the tone signature was crippled big time, with multiple tones being had as I swept.  I repeated sweep several times and I would have gave < 15 % chance of nonferrous even existing beneath my coil.  But checking target with gold field even even running 1 level lower (slower) Reactivty (level 2.5) I got more to go on vs the disc mode hot program, meaning now my odds went up to >50 % chance of being nonferous based on what I heard.

To conclude here.
I won't BS folks here.
Using the HF coils running 28.8khz they can be sharper in iron vs the LF coils.  A person will get used to if they apply themselves.  One thing I will mention here and this too is a good weapon (using gold field to check suspect targets) is using disc program sometimes Deus audio will get caught, trying to sound off extremely close to iron range, and a user may be thinking is what I hear nonferrous or is it iron.  When you get these, if you hit them with gold field and you hear nothing, or you hear a signal more corrupt vs what you heard using disc mode program, you can almost bet the farm what you are hearing is iron.  Now this applies moreso to shallow and middepth targets.

Cheers.
