    Decided To Get Me Another AT Pro

    I had an AT Pro about 3 years ago and had a blast water hunting. As a result of meeting a guy and his wife who lived somewhere in North Carolina and several silver ore specimens in the back of his car, I sold the detector to him. He told me if the detector was able to detect the ore in these large rock he would buy the detector on the spot. The very last thing he asked before leaving was, "how deep could this detector find a 5 gallon bucket of silver coins", will all I could say was, if the ground was fairly clean of iron trash, maybe 2 feet deep, but I couldn't say for sure. Never heard from him again.

    A Once In A Lifetime Gold Find

    That is an awesome find.

    Minelab Multi-frequency

    Even though its been stated that using the Frequency Spectrum to see the frequency, is an error, I'm seeing the same results as EL NINO77. I'm seeing a Visual representation of the frequency that is dominant, where his (much better) is both a visual output and a numerical frequency HZ. I need to see if I can make my program replicate what EL NINO77 has posted.

    Minelab Multi-frequency

    I'm actually in this to satisfy my on curiosity. Not trying to prove or disprove anyone. And certainly not to discredit other, in any way. This software also has the capability to output like an oscilloscope. I'll tinker more in the coming days. Thanks for the message EL NINO77, I'll see if I can make those adjustments.

    Minelab Multi-frequency

    I ran a few test tonight and here is a captured picture of my Equinox in multi-frequency mode. I couldn't get my capture to go higher than 20, but that is my computer hardware problems not the Equinox. I also did single frequency captures and all look good but frequency 5, but here again I'm not sure I've got everything set correctly. Stay tuned

    Can Your Detector Do This?

    Very interesting test results. I hadn't tried my Equinox, but it's good to know.

    I Had A Goal For This Year.....

    Now you'll start finding more. The more you hunt the more you'll find. The more experience, the more in-tuned you'll be with the machine, in turn,the more you'll find.

    Can Your Detector Do This?

    My TDI with the small coil can do it. 😁

    Nox 800 Help / Mentor

    The Equinox is a turn on and go detector. Start with Park 1, leave everything as is and start hunting. It is amazing how well the stock programs are. Put a few hours on this program before switching to another program or making adjustment. Go to page 11, start guide, follow instructions and off you go. I guarantee you'll be good to go.

    Tinfoil Conversation

    Just got off the phone with Jerry "Tinfoil". He says hi to all on the forum and mentioned Steve and many others by name. He doesn't do much posting anymore but frequently visits to read our posts. Then the next topic he wanted to talk about was small gold jewelry and how the Equinox performed. His advise was, take my wife's jewelry and play, record ID numbers and the audio response of each.

    Tinfoil Advice

    I think the boost mode reduces the recovery speed (no documentation about this) and allows more time for the weaker signals to process and be heard. This in turn, with reduced sensitivity, allows for deeper targets to be heard without EMI affecting the audio. But, BP is not for super trashy areas.

    1906 Barber Beauty With My 800

    Fantastic find. I get a lot of enjoyment, when I see a Barber. Over the years I've found several Barber dimes and only one quarter. I'm very happy for you, it must have brought you much happiness.
