Equinox Is Multi Frequency? Or Isn't It? Is It Not? It Is! Isn't It?

For comparison, I take measurements from the Whites Spectra V3 Detector:

 Spectra V3: 3F -multi -TX normal..

Mark Gillespie's video is great and demonstrating it to people who don't understand what these graphs mean

He runs though it in an easy to understand way.  Thanks for doing the video Mark.

Mark did a fabulous job. Since I am not worried about the frequency stuff what I learned is that the Noise Cancel numbers do exactly the opposite of what I would have assumed. Pushing noise cancel numbers lower pushes the frequency higher. Usually these shifts are trivial to performance, but in a “no-EMI” location you could set the Noise Cancel as low as possible to optimize a high frequency like 40 kHz and as high as possible to optimize the single low frequency options like 5 kHz. I doubt there is a measurable effect on performance but it might lend a psychological boost that does help at times.

      Published on Jan 19, 2019 - Just a quick video showing the benefits of the Vista Gold running at a higher kHz and using zero gain in highly mineralised soil Here are the videos, after further testing I can confirm that the 15 kHz hits stronger on deep silver in clean Non Mineralised Soil and both are exactly the same on the gold coin at depth in Non Mineralised Soil.

      Advanced Nugget Hunting With the Fisher Gold Bug Metal Detector by Pieter Heydelaar & Dave Johnson, Fisher Labs

      This out-of-print book is a good basic text on gold nugget detecting. Although it uses the original Fisher Gold Bug as an example the information applies to most nugget detectors. Part 2 by David Johnson is an excellent primer on hot rocks.
