    How To Ignore Users On The Forum

    I think this is a pretty awful title to greet me every time I open this forum. Is there any way to get it off of the top and the first thing I see?
  2. When I read the title I thought you had been laid up ... 😁 Glad to see you getting out there and getting more. Mitchel

    Paul, Good catch on the mechanics of your rig. You can get to know them pretty good so you stay safe. Now for that body of yours ... you said: "While I was out yesterday evening with the 19 I realized I am not up to speed with it yet... My shoulder was killing me in no time. Not the perfect starter coil for the season. Think I will break out the ZEQ 800 today and see how she goes...." You must work your way into things. (Fred's advice.) I'm here to tell you the worst thing about the 800 is its weight. (What? The 7000/14/19 is the heavy beast you say.) I've been using the 800 90% of the time lately (100% on the beach) and I've gotten a few aches and pains from it and my digging arm for sure. Yesterday I stuck in an overnight-er with the 7000/14 and I now know why many 'dislike' it for the weight. I've lost my edge over it and it has an edge over me. Given a few trips I'd be back in shape but by the end of the day I could only swing the 800. Slow out there big man. You'll have to work your way into Norvic's condition again. It's too bad you couldn't do some yoga while doing all that driving. You would be more ready for the weeks ahead of you. Muscle pain goes away with time and a good massage but don't look for Trent when you need that one! Good luck. Mitchel
  4. The web is an ever changing thing. If your website remains static then it can't be dynamic and then as Steve says it becomes relegated to a lesser site just based on the site's technology. When that happens information is lost and not used. Thanks Steve for taking time out of your searching to keep things up to date. Mitchel

    Ok. I used the 800 in Gold Basin but I didn't hear any and yes I would know not to use discrimination. I tried in Gold Mode only. I didn't have a meteorite with me to hear as a sample. Mitchel

    What were your 800 settings? Were you in Gold mode? Mitchel

    For Sale These are a few unique nuggets. Are they found in a particular place there? Mitchel https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1656424654
  9. Fragments of meteorites fell in southwest China’s Yunnan Province on June 1 and two pieces fell through villagers’ house roofs while one fell on the dry ground and another one was found in a cornfield. https://www.shine.cn/viral/1806045767/

    Dave, Dave, Dave ... I just saw this. That is way out of the ordinary. Great job. How many days were you there? I've been there and near the RR tracks a few times to no avail. My finds are very small. It just shows it takes a lot more than just location often times. Mitchel
  12. Here is a good video of the meteor striking the ground turning it into many meteorites! https://www.amsmeteors.org/videos/?video_id=1222 Mitchel

    Fred, No telling what you have 'lost' in your yard or the previous users left for you to find. In no time at all you will have hunted every house in the neighborhood! Mitchel

    Thanks for the good description of settings. Mitchel
  15. I use the setup you have shown there with my WM8, WM10 and WM12 and connect to JP's booster if necessary or any other volume device. Mitchel
