CTX 3030 TID Worksheet (Work in Progress) 1.0.0

About This File

Hey guys.  I just got a CTX 3030 this week and noticed there aren't any good Target ID Spreadsheets out there for people to use to create custom programs.  This is my first iteration of the file which I expect to update over time.   My next update should include more information on the target like (date, weight, etc) as well as documentation on detector settings used when getting the TID.   Again, I've only had my CTX 3030 for about a week, so i'm still learning about this thing.   I also built a nice pivot sheet in Microsoft Power BI (powerbi.microsoft.com) that I will upload as well if you want to play with it.  The plotting of the numbers are vertically inverted due to how most graphs are built.  I have to look into how to represent these plots like they do on the detector.  Feedback is welcomed.  I will update it as I have time....

Notes:  The spreadsheet includes the following Columns

  • Target - Description of Target
  • Ferrous Start - Lowest Ferrous number observed
  • Ferrous End - Largest Ferrous number observed
  • Average Ferrous - Average of (Ferrous Start + Ferrous End) /2
  • Conductive Start - Lowest Conductive number observed
  • Conductive End - Largest Conductive number observed
  • Average Conductive - Average of (Conductive Start + Conductive End) /2
  • Average ID - Average of (Average Ferrous + Average Conductive) /2
  • Type - Object type (Coin, ring, etc)
  • Category - Object Category (Treasure, Trash)

      I decided I'm going to sell my GPZ 7000 and Equinox 800 and go with one detector because I could use the money right now. So I picked up a used CTX 3030 to be my somewhat all around machine for now and on my first hunt I noticed that the target ID numbers were all over the place and target indicator jumped around as well. I think I got taken unless someone can tell me some possible reasons.
      I'm afraid I'm going to have to send to Minelab and pay for repair and bump my out of pocket up so high I could have bought a new one. ☹️

      Finally, After the damn cycle, some sand moved away from one of my usual spots..
      I had almost two hours available since dawn and on a pretty red clay seabed I found these two beauties.

      New spot inspection last week and happened a lucky strike due to the super sanded in condition even with unusual beach appearance...
      Few seconds of a three hours session, otherwise useless dive between fresh foil at depth and heavier stuff way too far from shore...Ass hit for me this time...🤣🤣🤣

      I’m heading up to Georgetown gold fields, in North Queensland Australia soon. Do not want to get into the new GPX 6000 or GPZ 7000 yet and besides that I do not live close to a gold region. I currently own a CTX 3030. I know that the Monster is not in the same league as the more expensive units but at just over $1,000 it is an option to purchase.
      But my thoughts are that the CTX I already own may do pretty much the same as the Monster, plus it has discrimination ability.
      Could someone please enlighten me. Thanks.
