Hi Bob,

 

I was all over the place after the AMDS Forum folded but have not been happy since so decide to start a new home base here. Since I own this outright it will be around as long as I am, hopefully for a long time! Good to see you here, send any AMDS Forum orphans you see this way. Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the new prospecting forum, Steve.

I liked your AMDS one. Didn't frequent it all the time but I did appreciate the knowledge. When I needed to know something about prospecting or prospecting equipment I could alway pop in there and find what I needed to know or get pointed in the right direction.

Wishing you sucess.

HH

Thanks Mike. While this will tend to be prospecting oriented I do not intend on letting it be only that. I personally look for gold wherever I can find it. I jewelry hunt parks and tot lots. I love beach detecting. I still have not checked gold coin off my bucket list. Gold can be found almost anywhere, and there is no reason to limit looking for it to any particular means. So as a top-notch jewelry hunter I know you have things to contribute here.

Steve; free at last...

 

like being retired-no boss and no one to be "nice" to-just the truth as you see it.

 

Thanks, I am always a "fan" of yours

Congrat's on new forum Steve!!

 

Really looking forward to discussions about age old problems like dredge classification. I have really missed the old AMDS forum and all the amazing folks and wealth of knowledge. Merry Christmas!

      Hello to you all,
      Have been detecting for about 4 years/450 hours.  In the spring of 2017 I decided it was time for me to upgrade. Since then I pondered 3/4 detectors of different makes/models. After more than a year of watching and reading detectortests on the web, today I finally made my choice. Thanks to Steve's posts and the videos of "Calabash Digger" and this forum I've ordered today a Minelab Equinox 800 and registered an account on DetectorProspector.com.  
      Hope we all will be members of the "Minelab Equinox Fan Club" for a long time!

      Greetings to all.
      New member here from Michigan.
      I've been detecting for about the last 10 yrs.  I did my very first detecting as a kid with my father many yrs ago, 1969-70 ish with an old BFO machine.  Lots of silver in those days!
      I wish Michigan was a state where nugget hunting was a possibility!  I went out west and hunted tailings on Patented land as a guest, through a friend, and had a great time. I even bought a used GMT for the trip, with the intent of future trips west.  A couple Grandchildren later, and those intended nugget hunting trips may now be more of a hope than reality?
      I've been popping in for the last couple yrs and enjoyed reading about members nugget hunting adventures, and general information on gold detecting.  I figured it was time to join Steve's Forums.

      Hey all!   Old time detectorist from the Strafford Cnty Area  New Hampshire and Seacoast. Own the Nox 800, Explorer XS, Garrett GTI1500. Member of Ring Finders.  Retired and am a business mentor .  Bought the new 800 to start and analyze a new business idea, and have gotten somewhat used to it, would like to hook up with somebody to be more competent with Beach hunting and some of the quirks of this machine as well as my explorer. I am an electronics RF engineer in my past life and hope to use some of this knowledge in understanding more about detectors.  Hello to all and look forward to your experiences....JIM

      Hi, 
      I'm new here and starting to get addicted to the hobby. Just to introduce myself a little, I’m from El Paso, Tx. So I can literally see the First Texas products factory from my back yard. With that being said my first real metal detector I am very strongly leaning towards buying a Teknetics. Mainly due to good reviews and such a low price. But I am stuck in which to choose. The two options I’m looking at is the T2+ or the G2+. I do plan on mostly be in the hunt for nuggets and I’ve heard that the G2+ is the go to for gold but that the T2+ is also a prospecting machine and has twice the depth but has more chatter. Any opinions as to which would be better? And has anyone any experience chasing nuggets with either of these machines?

      Ive frequented this forum many times, especially to view fellow lovers of the foxy-noxy dribble over their new machine.  Im addicted to detecting now, thanks to the many great finds ive had in only 5 weeks use. My list to date:
      3 silver coins (1872 Brit/1828 and a shilling)
      8 musket balls
      18 1900 and 1800 pennies
      I ring (medieval i think)
      A bronze animal figure
      oh and lots of foil, ring pulls and other junk, which has helped me suss out the wheat from the trash via the VDI numbers.
       
      My fave setting so far is:
      Park 2 - Discrimination 1 - Recovery 4 - sensitivity 18-20
       
      Hope to bounce some ideas around and learn from you all.  Especially the king of the Nox  and tester - (Steve H)  LOL.   
       
      CHEERS ALL.
