Thread For New Detectorist Using Deus And New Deus Users

Update: USING GOLD FIELD

Been out today on a old Roman site, very worked out for many years, believe me, finds here are very far and few between.....

however I searched using G/Field, lots of iron naturally, struggled initially, with the amount of feedback from iron contamination on this site,,,  however this program is relatively new to me, so persevere I did,, as the day went on things started to all click, what was the game changer was when I experimented with the XY Screen,, ( I've never been fan of this before) but it's extremely accurate using G/ Field!! Amazingly accurate information!!

My advice to anyone interested in trying G/Field is to have a try using the XY screen! I certainly was amazed with the accuracy!

By the end of the day I managed to find several Roman coins including 1silver Denarius!

All in all ,,,, very impressive!

settings below....( GB of 66 was grabbed early in the day and I never had to adjust for rest of the day, machine ran really stable on this GB number)

Elliptical coil

Disc...IAR 5

GB.... 66

reactivity ... 4

sens.... 95....

Audio Response.... 4

threshold...0

Frequency...74 KHz

XY Screen 

Hope this helps at least one person!!!!

regards

Dave.

Thanks for sharing Dave.

I mean this sincerely.

Nothing like having someone here who hunts the polluted sites to share info with results.

Thanks Tn for such well thought out posts. As a new Deus user it is incredibly helpful. I mainly hunt the beaches of SoCal and so far I go by the tones and just keep the remote in my pocket. Now I’m inspired to take it out and look at what it’s telling me.

Forgive me, but how does one get into X/Y from GF? Trying to save a custom program.

Hit the OPTION button,

go to CONFIGURATION,

then PROFILE, 

then XY.... set magnify to, five or six...by pressing down on the pinpoint button for a second or two,

Well, it's been a couple of weeks since my last post here.

 

So what's new with using the Gold Field program?

Here's  my thoughts since then.

(TNsharpshooter, I'll appreciate your thoughts on this)

Downside......

The Deus using Gold Field,,, will except good audio response, that's not necessarily a non ferrous target,,, even using IAR settings of 4 or 5!

Somehow,, maybe deep iron?,,, I'm not sure, will give a fantastic audio sound, but check the VDI and it registers as 00/01 ........

However in saying that,,, the majority iron, this program has no problems with telling the user that iron is under the coil!

I've come to the conclusion that Gold Field, just maybe, is unable to totally discriminate all ferrous targets, perhaps which are deep?

However,, since using this program I can't remember the last large piece of iron I've dug!,, in conjunction with the XY screen.

The most important thing is when using Gold Field ,, IMO,, is the XY screen it's vital!!! ,,,,, this is very accurate at telling the user of these false "audio signals ",, I've settled for the XY magnification of 4,, this does seem to have a better way of indicating targets, set too high, and the lines seem to go a bit crazy!

(Personally I think GF program, should be defaulted to showing the XY screen)

Obviously GB is vital when using G/F,  

Funnily enough today, I had ground sensitivity set on 6, and the top right box displayed virtually the same GB number that was grabbed using G/F ,,, this has given me huge encouragement with the new V4.1 update in respect of the new GB sensitivity feature!....

Personally I'm loving this program,, and it's definitely found me lots of excellent finds, from sites I honestly thought were searched out!

Message to all,,,,, give this a try,,, be patient,, it will take time to get your head into this program,,, and you may well be very surprised!

Regards 

Dave

      I was hunting in my backyard again and had a good sounding tone with a TID of 32 on the display so I started to dig.
      I got down to about 4 inches deep and my carrot was sounding a close target as I dug.
      Carefully sifting through the soil I noticed what looked like the outline of a dime. All that it was, was just an impression of one.
      Once again I searched the hole again with my carrot and the target was no longer there.
      I tried the 800 again and found nothing within 3 feet in all directions of the hole, checked to see if anything stuck to the scoop, on my shoes, on my clothes and found nothing.
      How can a good sounding target with 2 detectors get lost or disappear like that.

      I have been a primary whites user since 1972  I have owned the V3i since its release and love it.  I have been looking at the equinox 800  and the anfibio multi. I was wondering if anyone had compared these two detectors the V3i.  Other multi frequency thoughts?  I have the Minelab Excalibur II 800 for salt water and diving.
      My only wish for the Anfibio multi would be to allow all three or select 2 (not available on the V3i)  
      The Graphics and information from the V3i are still unmatched

      White’s you have maybe a month to three months to come out with a new detector line , That’s if you want to keep up with the Jones better known as Minelab and Makro .
       Hope to see the lineup real soon. I know you don’t spend money on flashy videos and beautiful girls and that’s okay with me.
       What I want to see is American made on the housing somewhere and White’s number one detector company again.
       You make it I’ll buy it! ( I’ve been doing it since 1966 )

      Around here in the Klamaths bedrock is at lest 2 feel down and often much deeper.  Digging through several feet of boulders and cobbles is serious hard work.  Then there is sand sliding in from the sides making progress very slow.  To beat that, I need to set the sides of the hole far apart or I get a hole with a hand-sized bottom continually filled with sand from the sides.  That is a lot of work.  Historically the creek was a huge gold producer.  I see little or no gold in the upper material.  Have I just not found the right spot, or is sluicing here hopeless?  Should I spend more time prospecting for productive material near the surface, or give it up?

      I just received a new to me SDC2300 and wanted to verify it using the Minelab security check on their website. I did not receive the viewer that was originally included with the detector so what worked for me was a coolant leak detector flashlight ( black light or UV light) It works well enough for me to read the hidden code and I was able to verify my machine.

      I had a couple lead test targets for calibrating in the field but lost them on my last Western expedition.  This is the main reason I don't use gold test targets!  I'm ready to make a new set.  I'd like to hear your advice on what size and shape of lead I should be using, for both LF and PI detectors.
