  1. Yes I have experienced this phenomenon and I have explained the phenomena in a thread dated back in February 12th 2019 in post 4 in exposed in the link below. Many other UK detectorists have suffered the same issue and reported on our local detector forums. https://www.detectorprospector.com/forums/topic/8706-problem-with-equinox-600/
  2. Hello Dave here below is a link to an excellent article on the disadvantages of detecting using the "Tracking" Ground Balance, there is a lot of input from current members of this forum and well worth a read through. http://www.dankowskidetectors.com/discussions/read.php?2,140280,140289
  3. Hello Dave If you use the "Tracking" Ground Balance it is possible to alter the tonal and total loss of the signal on thin Non-ferrous objects the likes of weathered shot gun cartridge cases and hammered silvers if you dwell too long on sweeping the coil over the signal whilst in "Tracking", on a hammered silver you can literally loose the signal altogether as the procedure of GB adjustment not only eliminates the ground noise it will eliminate the signal from the thin hammered silver, here in the UK it is best to either set the GB at 0 (Zero) or myself I prefer to every now and then ca
  4. Hi you not by any chance running your Equinox in "Tracking" Ground Balance.
  5. I use the Bluetooth APTX Low Latency connection 100% of times for my Avantree Low Latency headphones, absolutely perfect.
  6. Hello Steve I have no reason to be curious but. I was just wondering why Coiltek are only concentrating on Minelab coils only even their second-hand detector sales are all focused on Minelab makes only, I remember when there was the squabble of Coiltek releasing the SDC coils without Minelab knowledge of what was taking place, I think Minelab chipped all their coils after that. Are you coping well with this virus situation, here in the UK we are all imprisoned with LOCKDOWN but our vaccination program is going well, Take Care.
  7. As the Phonak Roger FM wireless transmitter transmits FM wireless to the hearing aids there in No delay and is an instant transmission, be aware that the Phonak Roger FM wireless transmitter only works with the Phonak Hearing Aids and none others that I know of.
  8. Never heard of any metal detector that vibrates on the discovery of a find, but the easiest way to quieten the signal sound is to turn your headphones volume right down and all signals register on the control display screen. .
  9. Hi Even though you asked for the settings I use on my Roman sites, please be aware that your land will be totally different to that where I detect and it would be best for you to practice and use your Equinox on your own soil type and ground balance and noise cancel regularly. My threshold volume and pitch are a bit high for normal hearing but I am deaf so use the threshold nulling over iron as my preference. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Minelab Equinox 800 Settings. One of my best programs on the Equinox 800 has been based on fi
  10. To me your find is a adjustment keep off a gents trouser braces. You American guys must call braces suspenders, here in the UK we class suspenders what used to be used to keep womens nylon stockings up and were half the breadth of your find so I will go for it being off Gents Braces.
  11. I couldn't do with the coil cable dangling in front of my legs like that, it is a trip hazard just waiting to put you flat on the deck.
  12. Well done looks like a very good session. Hope you find more on your next visit. .
  13. Looks like SidTheKid isn't going to respond to any of the good advise offered above. My first thoughts are that he is running with too high a "Sensitivity" setting resulting in falsing. I suggest do a "Noise Cancel" drop the "Sensitivity" a bit at a time and "Ground Balance" then another "Noise Cancel".
  14. Enjoy your experience with the Equinox 800, Happy Hunting.
