Tarsacci.... UK Roman Site Hunt


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow, 30th July...........

im using the Tarsacci MDT on its first Roman site tomorrow,, 

The field has only the headland cut,, (wholecrop silage),, but I can't wait to experiment with the Tarsacci, I will only have a few hours to spare here but really looking forward to this opportunity!

ive been detecting this site since the early nineties,, (Fisher 1265X)  was the first detector I ever used here....(loved that machine),, and numerous other detectors since!

Site has been detected heavily throughout, not just by me , but numerous of other people, so,,, should be an excellent place to see what the Tarsacci can unearth,,,, .. For the record, I detected this site last year and only found about  half a dozen coins,,, in a whole days hunt,, so it will be a great test!

Hopefully some photos of Finds to follow, and a brief summary of how it went!

regards

Dave. H

My first Roman search with the Tarsacci went very well, sadly though the stubble was much longer than I imagined, only a few areas were short, most was just too high for detecting.

However, I found Roman coins, including a early silver! loads of silvers have come from here over the past years! Really cuffed to get my first silver with the MDT,,,. I've not tried to ID it yet, but looks an early one.

Not much else turned up, a couple of shotgun tops, one piece of lead,didn't get caught out with much iron, really is quite easy to tell Iron using the Tarsacci, the best area of the field as for Finds go is still in crop, so will have to get back later, may probably wait for the field to be cultivated, taking into account the long stubble.

Settings .

TrH, -4,,,, any higher was getting noisy, -1 was unusable here.

Dsc, -30

Sens, 7 ,,,, very stable 

GB, auto 910/930

Disc mode

ST, 41

Black sand, OFF

TRACK, OFF

Fc, 12K & 18K

The -4 on TrH,, made all the difference here today, no false signals from the Coil touching the stubble, all together a very enjoyable 3 hour search, can't wait to get back here again, always a good test for any new detector is a well searched out site, gives a good insight to how good the machine should be.

I'm so far delighted with the MDT.

 

Regards.

Dave.

Thanks Aaron,, appreciate your commitment.

PS. Just to put the record straight,,,,,,,

I paid Tarsacci for my machine, $1,200 + UK import duties, and VAT when it arrived in the U.K.

So far, I'm  more than happy with my investment!

thanks.

Dave.

Yes, you did Dave, as per the ad I placed on Rogers Relics. However someone has lied and said otherwise to fit their own agenda.....

Keep up the great work Dave, we’re proud of you mate!

      I’m always reading over the Tarsacci manual and with my Tarsacci in hand as I go . I was reading over the discrimination and like some other detectors you can cut out some targets. It shows you will still get the ID number but no sound.
       Well I can run the discrimination up to a +30 and I get the target sound as if it was on zero on everything. I got the mode set on discrimination and the level of discrimination set at +30 but don’t make any difference. I know I’ll still get the target ID but shouldn’t hear it .
       This is the first time I’ve checked this out and I done it to see if it was working correctly .
       I haven’t heard of a reboot but I hope it’s something I can do to correct this problem.
       I don’t like the idea of having to send it back already.

      I continue to have a lot of questions on the salinity balance and how to use it. This is one example using it to cancel out small foil while still finding small gold in the 1-5 VDI range.

      Mailed my detector to California today. Going to find out why it won’t turn off at times or won’t turn on at times outdoors in 80+ degrees. Indoors 70 degrees works like it should. I will post the results.

      I have a Tarsacci on the way, should be here by mid week.  Reading some of the posts 18 KHz hasn’t been as productive hitting silver in some of the posts I have read.  

      I will be hunting pasture, old camp sites and old house sites.  There will be iron and sometimes lots of it.  Hunting for Buttons, bullets and other relics would you use 6 kHz 9 kHz 12 kHz or back to the 18 kHz.  Silver of course would be a high conductor, I would think brass and lead might fall into the mid range conductors.  

      if anyone would share their experience with me I would appreciate it. .
