Varying Height And Azimuth?

Recommended Posts

While experimenting with my Gold Racer, I think I saw more stable VIDs by raising the coil and scanning perpendicular to magnetic north. There seemed to be a height that was most stable, and scanning perpendicular to magnetic north tended to eliminate oscillation between very low and very high values.  It wasn't perfect, but it was suggestive.  I'm wondering if anyone else has anything to offer about this.

Minelab pulse induction detectors in particular are susceptible to directional swing issues but it is not something normally encountered with a VLF. There is a scientific basis for what you are experiencing however.

See pages 12 and 13 and in particular the section on atmospheric sources of interference.

      I welcome!
      Minelab is a hybrid MDS-10 Minelab multi-frequency metal detector and Ultra WideBand pulse radar from Chemring. In the summer of 2019, the Minelab MDS-10 project (version 2.0) was adapted to search for historical finds. For what I bought, for what I sell ( https://md-arena.com/sekretnyj-proekt-minelab-gibrid-detektor-georadar-novinka-2019/ ). Target sizes include coins and jewelry. Practical tests confirmed the effectiveness of the technology. In Russia expected that the novelty will be presented at the copy slate Detectival 2019.
      But alas...
      Does anyone know when?
      IMHO Minelab should enter the market of such devices.It is impossible to give the market all the time to LORENZ, MAKRO Detectors, Nokta, with ichony georadars.
      With respect.

      I would like to see what any of you have created as far as displaying your metal detectors at home. I'm looking for creative ideas to make a home display myself. I'm entertaining many ideas from open to closed displays, even using Curio cabinets. To be clear, I'm looking for ways to display machines primarily, which could be mixed with finds as well.

      Hello everyone ..
      I wonder if there anyone who uses a 3D metal detector to locate gold deposits @ around 15 to 20 feet deep... 
      I have heard of larger nuggets of 1 and 2 pounds in size and gold deposits with 300 grams in a bucket of dirt being found in the river banks. 
      Could a GPX with the New 30" coil   could reach a 1 or. 2 pound nugget  @ 4 feet deep... 
      Im not interested in the finer gold just the bigger nuggets or a large concentrate of gold ..

      This is a nice concept. If works I can see a lot of interest.

      The cell phone is now a common day device owned by most people. It was inevitable that a metal detector designer would mimic the look and feel of a cell phone in an attempt to modernize how metal detectors are perceived. As far as I know it was Quest (back when they were named Deteknix) that first came up with this design. Or at lest they were the first to really market something like this in 2015. Then we next got the Minelab Equinox in 2018. And now the Nokta/Makro Simplex+ in 2019.
      Some might call this copycat designing but form follows function to a certain degree and all items copy others in some ways. All T-shirts have a head hole and two arm holes. Still, I think Deteknix/Quest gets the credit here for first popularizing this design. I'll be surprised if more are not to follow.

      Can someone explain to me what makes this new Anfibio different from a X TERRA 705 the 705 can run three different frequencies all be it you have to change coils to be able to run any of the three different frequencies it can run the Anfibio you push a button to change frequencies but with that being said I also know I can purchase a coil from a manufacturer that pretty much allows me to run one coil on the 705 and just by turning the 705 off and back on in a short time period it changes to one of the different frequencies that the 705 can run in in other words one single coil will run 3 KHz,7.5 KHz,and 18.75 KHz all done with just one coil so can someone please explain how the Anfibio is any different from the X TERRA 705 and not trying to start a bashing war here just trying to understand how the Anfibio is much different from the 705.
