Orx Tone Break?

Recommended Posts

Just curious as to the mid/high tone  break and where it falls in relation to zinc pennies. Its hard to tell from looking at the diagram in the owner manual.

Looks like tone breaks are preset and non adjustable.  There is one gent I think who will  have (Calabash Digger) ORX in USA.  I’ll ask him about this topic and maybe he will do actual video to show tone breaks while sweeping some US coins.

Thanks fellas.  

I’ve gotten used to having the tone break right at zimc so they give a mixed tone with the Kruzer. It’s nice in parks and schoolyards for getting an ID range without having to look at the screen.

Like Steve said I do have a ORX that should be here maybe Wednesday of this coming week.

Here is this old courthouse that sits in the middle of a city block and I have permission to detect. The lady who I guess you’d call her the overseer said others has detected it but found only bottle caps . If I do find any coin I plan on donating to their history display they have.

Air testing with my ORX I got the following in coin fast:

Clad dime 92/high tone

Zinc penny 86/high tone

1943 penny 91/high tone

My wedding band sounds off on the midtone. 

Per the manual bronze coins should read lower, between about 63 to 82.

I have only used it twice and this is my first XP product so you will need to wait for someone else's report for the definitive answer.  I am sure Calabash will provide us with a good video soon.

Regards,

MT

Here is the section from the manual showing the tone breaks vs. ID numbers for the coin programs.

I find the tone break info shown in my last posting to be a little confusing.  It seems to indicate a sliding pitch for iron and then three additional tones. Is this correct or am I misunderstanding this?

Noah,

Like you I am a little confused by the manual info.   I have not found any coins with mine just yet. I have only been relic hunting so far.

Let us know if coins in the wild read differently from air test results.

      Has anyone had this issue?  Occasionally when charging my elliptical HF coil it will not start the 3 second on/3 seconds off indicator once it is charged.  I changed it for hours yesterday and the most it would do would be that the light would occasionally flicker.  Finally I took it off charge and the controller indicated that the coil was fully charged. The coil seems to function fine other than that.
      Thanks

      Compared the x35 9" coil and the High Frequency Elliptical coil on both XP ORX and the XP Deus using the same settings on 2 different targets next to iron and coal. The first target was a Confederate GA State Seal button and the second was a piece of ornate Colonial gold.

      It finally stopped raining for a couple of days and I was able to get to the farm and try out the new ORX on a couple of old tenant house sites.  These old sites date from around the 1930's or so based on the coin dates.  They also sit on or near older sites so you are never sure what you will find.
      Coin deep was too sparky for me on these sites due to the massive amounts of iron and nails.  I switched back and forth between Coin Fast at 15.2 and 28.8k, standard settings with iron tone "on".  I found the 28.8 frequency to be my favorite.  Once while running in 15.2k I noticed a small aluminum brad on top of the ground (about the size of a match head).  In 15.2 I didn't get even a peep out of it.  I then switched to 28.8 and got a nice loud tone.  The separation in the extreme trash was excellent!
      My better finds for the day was 3 Wheaties, 1 War nickel, 2 Mississippi tax tokens, 1 Louisiana tax token, part of a broken spur, a broken tent tensioner, and one D Buckle.
      Thanks for viewing,
