Introduced about 1992

That was my first tector and I bought it new in '92.  Dug a lot of coins with that machine and used it exclusively for 22yrs. Sold it 2 yrs ago and it's still working fine.

Seems like there will be plenty of interest. So I will sit down shortly and work up the details.....

I have a 6000 Di Pro that was working the last time I used it but I'd need to crank up a battery pack for it now.  I think I bought it in 85.  When was that first produced?

Are you sure you're not confusing an earlier incarnation of the 6000 Di pro ?  We're talking the black box with the 950 loop, right ?  If so, I thought that didn't come out till 1989-ish ?

I just checked Sven’s website and per the field tests he linked to, My factory Hip-Mount Teknetics Mark 1 was introduced in 1985, so I have a “qualified” machine.

Here’s a link to his site...lots of stuff on vintage detectors....https://www.treasurelinx.com/tk.html

      If you aren't doing anything in 3 hours you can attend a meteorite lecture!  
      Metamorphism of primitive solar system materials 
      Chondritic meteorites represent the most primitive material in the solar system. These chondrites originate from asteroids that did not reach temperatures high enough to melt. Although they escaped melting, some of these primitive asteroids reached temperatures high enough to induce metamorphism - recrystallization of a rock in a solid state. Unlike Earth, where metamorphism is accompanied by pressure and heat, metamorphism on asteroids is driven only by temperature. This metamorphism results in textural and geochemical changes that provide insight into the thermal and physical evolution of small bodies during the solar system's earliest formation.

      The Harquahala Mountains near Salome, Arizona provided a beautiful location for Bill Southern's three-day Patreon outing for those who back his YouTube channel, Nugget Shooter Journals. This was his second Patreon outing of the year. Including Bill and Tammy about a dozen gold hunters attended.
      The long weekend started on Thursday night with Bill giving an engaging talk at the Gold Fever Radio club just south of Salome on Hwy 60. The next few days most people set up their RV's and campers a short drive from the private claims we had access to. I really enjoyed the group, learned a lot and even found a couple of nuggets with my GM 1000, a 1.7 gm solid nugget and a 1.0 gm specie.
      Tammy, aka Nugget Shooterette, who has her own YouTube channel also found a nugget and then made a delicious dinner for all of us on Saturday night. Fantastic.
      Bill and Tammy are fun to be with and very generous with their knowledge of gold and gem prospecting. If you have not seen their channels take a look.
      Happy Hunting,

      Can anyone recommends any really great gold hunting adventures in the USA?  Maybe something like a week guided tour.

      Ill keep sending out apps, but its likely the few spots are taken and this will be reserving your spot in the wait list Que..
      We have a few Western States Prospecting Association openings available.
      PM me with your email address and Ill send you information and an application.
      Were a limited membership capped at 100 paid members.
      Dues are a family membership for $135 a year, seniors pay $100 after the first year.
      The claims are proven to hold detectable gold with locations in 3 western states CA, NV and AZ.
      Like big gold?
      This one came from one of our NorCal claims!

      This hunt is open to the public and is still scheduled to happen as of March 19, 2020. Hopefully it will not be postponed or cancelled. Jeff
