  1. I didnโ€™t want another dog. Still donโ€™t. Itโ€™s not even my dog. But apparently Iโ€™m her human. Poor judge of character I reckon ๐Ÿคฃ
  2. 'ello, 'ello, 'ello, what's all this then? https://www.nuggetfinder.com.au Wonder how the dongle is done?
  3. Cheers Reg. All is well mate. A beautiful morning indeed but alas I am spending a weekend watching under 14 basketball. Hope to get across soon and do some comparisons with you ๐Ÿ˜‰
  4. Howdy Reg. In saying that these coils have been made specifically for the QED, is there something about them compared to the previous x-coils for GPX? Different length of wire or something? Flat wound, bundle wound or a combo? Cheers, NE.
  5. Top one is 11 grams. Bottom one is 6 grams. My 1st and 3rd biggest. All GPZ gold.
  6. I actually havenโ€™t tried ground balancing over a little pile of them in that other spot. Might be worth a try. They might be what is better described as cold rocks? They are positive numbers on the Equinox. A DD might not change anything with them but will give it a go also.
  7. A vid of the targets I found with the settings I showed on that first vid. All rubbish unfortunately but not surprised. The threshold is uncomfortably loud but with the Quest, some sports earphones and a lower Pitch it is comfortable to listen to. Hope it you helps you Dave and anyone else that is interested. Maybe you will work out what not to do ๐Ÿคฃ Reg, JR, Phrunt - happy for constructive critiquing ๐Ÿ˜‰
  8. Yes and no. I see others over on AEGPF that run a Null THS B and the THS A at Max (90). They can then also generally up their Gain as well. As with many detectors personal preference is key. Some like a silent machine, I prefer a threshold. Mode 1 runs its 'pulse' very quickly which is better for small targets. But I think the theory is that it can also be more prone to ground noise. Thus, people try to use as lower Mode as possible but if they can't gain a GB at Mode 1 they increase to 2. If they can't GB at 2 they increase to 3 and so on. Phrunt is very lucky in that his ground is so un-mineralised that he can run Mode 11 and still achieve a GB. Mode 3 is pretty standard for me with the Detech. I have noticed that on different days some Modes can be quieter than others with regard to EMI. Holding the coil still on the ground and moving up through the Modes you can hear different pulses and noises coming through. Yesterday Mode 3 and 5 were the quietest at my location. Just different frequencies picking up different things I guess. Another vid coming in a minute.
  9. Dave - you beat me to it!! I made a video for you (and anyone else) and have been trying to navigate iMovies and Youtube. Not easy the first time through but will be from now on. My first vid about detecting so be gentle. I will watch yours now but from the write up you have put above we have gone about things a little similar but a little different also. I'm sure no 2 detectors or detectorists will ever use things in exactly the same way. Probably a couple of things to mention. This was to set up for small targets. The speaker is very loud but that was just for the vid as I had no idea how it would come through the Go-Pro. Setting up for large targets with bigger coils is similar only send the THS-B up instead of down. I am still to test a higher Mode or a lower Mode as being better for larger targets. I think the theory is a higher Mode but will have a play. Of course, this just my method ๐Ÿ‘ Cheers, NE.
  10. But I don't live in NSW - I live in Victoria ๐Ÿ˜‰ Murray Cod season opens in about 2 weeks. Hopefully it is more successful than my gold season has been. The Tuena thing - enough gold 'anomalies' to extend to drilling. Sounds good but too deep for a 'tector - even the mighty Zed! Hope you're doing well Mitchel ๐Ÿ‘
  11. Hi CCRV. Perhaps try a Factory Reset and start from scratch. Just in case there is some outlier setting in there somewhere giving you an issue. My guess would be High Yield difficult as being your best bet. Threshold at 35 is a question mark for me. I would think you will be missing the little fellas with that settings. Noise cancel, ground balance and ferrite balance over the hot ground in semi-auto tracking. Sensitivity at 1 and bring it up until unstable and back it off 1 or 2. Just my guess at what will quieten things. Audio Smoothing and Ground Smoothing would be next if that all doesnโ€™t work. Best of luck ๐Ÿ˜‰
  12. I'm the same as Lacky. Profind 35. Only one I've had. Works fine.
  13. Wow! That would have been very hard. Well done. Best of luck with the book and hopefully it helps many others too ๐Ÿ‘
  14. I assume the States are getting the full Relic Pack with the 5500? Will only see the Prospectors Pack in Australia from what Iโ€™ve heard ๐Ÿ˜‰ A great stocking filler!
  15. Sounds almost too good to be true but if it proves successful that would be certainly amazing! If you would like an Australian tester I would be keen ๐Ÿ‘
