I'm new to the site and I'm from southeastern PA, In the heart of colonial america. I just wanted to say thanks for helping me on some of my questions. It's nice to be on a site that doesn't beat you up for questions that may be old. I was always taught to pass information on to help people become better at what they do, This site is in line with my thinking and I look forward to many more positive interactions.
Hello all, I’m new to detecting, but didn’t want to buy a detector that was limited in its capabilities. Chose the Equinox 800, along with a Profind 35 pointer. It’s winter here, which means 2’ of snow, so my detecting area is limited to a walk up and down the driveway for now. (Found nothing except Magnetite gravel)
Hope to setup a practice garden when spring comes but it’s tough just sitting here waiting!
For all you detectorists that are able to get “out and about” this time of year, enjoy!

Hi All from Pokeno, New Zealand. Introducing myself first.Retired and rather reclusive, I hunt mainly beaches, relic, dirt and mud, and a little water hunting. We live rural and I use a Tarsacci MDT8000 95% time and an XP Deus Still have AT Pro and and XTerra 705 for friends, visitors and the odd swing. Sold all other detectors I have had over the years. Steve has grown a great forum which I have followed on and off over the years and gotten to know, so I hope to contribute to our mutual hobby as well in a small way.
I changed my avataar to a NZ Womens Service badge to honour the following;
During World War II women worked at 'men's' work to free up over 200,000 men to serve in the armed forces. They were encouraged to "do their bit" for the war effort - from manufacturing uniforms, equipment and weaponry; to working in factories and on farms, trams and the railways. They also served in the Air Force, Army and Navy in Europe and the Pacific. Whereas in September 1939 the female labour force was estimated at 180,000, by December 1943 there were 228,000 women employed at the homefront and 8000 in the armed forces.

Hello feom Southern California! I’m a returnee to metal detecting after a 45-year hiatus when I used to play with an old Heathkit MD I bought at a garage sale when I was a kid,. Wow, has the technology changed! My background has been doing fieldwork for environmental consulting work (construction monitoring), and I have a degree in biology and minor in geology. My wife and I are rock hounds, so we go camping a lot to collect rocks and minerals for fun on desert BLM lands. As a biologist, I’ve also worked with bats and have done a lot of mine surveys in the Mojave and Great Basin. Working underground has been a really interesting part of the job as I am a western US history buff as well. So it was only natural for me to be into looking for gold too. Ok, so back to MD’ing.... my interest is in finding pretty minerals that are shiny, as well as meteorites in the Mojave. I recently bought a detector, and am really enjoying learning to use it. I’d really like to thank you guys for helping out with all that as I’ve learned a lot by reading all the materials on this site about it.
