Recommended Posts

Hi All

New to this forum but an oldie. Still running one of the first  two Explorers brought into Canada. I think it was 1999 or 98 They called me Sir Larry and the other Explorer owner was called King Richard, Cause he was so good at metal detecting. Me not so much. But did pretty well with Explorer and the Excalibur 800

Getting back into  the hobby and thinking of getting an 800 but have allot of questions

Welcome Explorer!

Well you've come to the right place for answers.  I bought my 800 based on what I learned researching on this forum.  There's a bunch of friendly and knowledgeable folks here, that can answer pretty much any detecting question there is. As a new detectorist, I'd be lost without this forum!

Welcome, Explorer001!  (Hope that's the serial number on your detector -- a collector's item for sure.  😁)

If you mean a Minelab Equinox 800, you'll learn a lot from this collection of threads and posts that Steve put together and continues to update:

Welcome Larry, Well I do like my 800 but use other detectors as well. The Equinox is a very versatile machine.

You forgot the smiley face.  Dogmatic posts (no pun intended :laugh:, well maybe a little) are more likely to get pushback here.  Steve's database (for starters) shows this site is open minded.  (You know all this, but I don't want new members to get the wrong impression.)
