Thanks, but the content can only be viewed if you join the U.K. Beach Detecting Group.  Do you have another source?

New facebook video showing the response on a buried coin on the beach. Very impressive...

Sorry about the Facebook link, glad you sorted it Steve.

By the way, I think its either a £2 coin or a Euro of some sort as he was in Holland.

Either way, still impressive.

I know many $1000+ detectors would not hit that coin in the wet salt beach.

What was nice is the see how smooth the detector was operating at.

Yes I can turn up the GAIN/SENS on any detector to here a target, but when you sweep off to the side, the chatter is quite noticeable and this one was very stable.

I won't say it yet until I actually try it on a Salt Water beach, but this could be my new travel companion.  So much more easier to pack than my 3030 too.  Plus I won't have to worry about leaking battery seal.

My 40+ years of detecting has seen many new machines and some were very good.  The new EQ-800 is getting me all giddi again for so many reasons too.

Does ANYBODY who posts videos about ANYTHING know how to shield a microphone from the wind?

You might try putting a fluffy wool sock-clean of course- over the mic....

Our Caribbean travel group have 8 units on order!  We're hoping the NOX is good enough to replace our Excaliburs.  Especially since it seems to behave so well in wet salt sand in the video.  I would like to see it performing waist deep in saltwater.  But things are sure looking good.  I have already designed a customized NOX travel bag for myself to carry 2 detectors and 2 sets of waterproof headphones- Oh speaking of which again, ML told me to order water phones now!  Last time I inquired no dealer had a clue about the waterproof headphone availability and why I called ML.  Mine are on order So I can test NOX underwater as soon as possible.  

I did everything possible to obtain an Equinox this month for our Jan 16th trip.  7 days in the sea for many hours daily would be a great test, and I expect the NOX to shine!  If not this trip will test next months trip, or when released.  

As nice as the Equinox looks and hopefully will be for all our needs, it would be even better were it a folding design.  Imagine just folding an Equinox up and sticking it in your backpack!!!  The worst thing possibly about the Equinox will be... everyone will have or want one and there will be less treasure to find!!!!   Kidding obviously!

      Published on Dec 22, 2017 - Glenn Wadstein mined Sterling Creek Mine from 1986-2001 and found pounds and pounds of gold. He built his own equipment and treated the job as a sand and gravel operation. Here's the equipment he built, the way he moved overburden to reveal the ore and how he processed the ore to filter out the gold. Wadstein took this video in 1986 at the outset of the mining operation, edited it into a clear and descriptive narrative and then converted the video to digital format in 2017. Wadstein narrated the video on October 22, 2017 at the Ashland Literary Arts Festival held Hannon Library, Southern Oregon University.
