    Venturing Into The Dark Side....

    Thanks for that guys. Hopefully I'll get out this week and give it a go.
  2. Ok so I am primarily a gold prospector but I love stuff all shiny and new so I went and bought a Nox 800. I haven't even had it 24hrs but have had a play in the backyard and was pretty impressed with what it can pickup and the depth. A tiny bit of aluminium (a top of a small rivet) down a cpl of inches gives me hope that I can probably use it out in the goldfields as well. Having to look at a screen and take not of numbers is a little different too. But I do have a question. Having never really had a decent relic/coin detector to hunt a park or beach.... where do I actually start with regards to settings? I basically live on a beach so probably will hunt the beach and campgrounds here. I dont have a lot of time (busy making enhancers lol) so want to maximise my efficiency and not waste time so any tips/hints gratefully accepted. Thanks Pat
  3. I think some detector headphone manufacturers have opted for the 'incorrect wiring' option in order to trigger the inbuilt amp in the GPX batteries. This can compensate for inefficient high impedance headphone drivers/inserts. It will also make the headphones appear to be louder and more brighter than those wired correctly. A little bit of slight of hand perhaps?? This of course is my opinion only and cant be backed with hard facts lol.

    Headphone Amplifiers

    As I am making larger batches now, they will be distributed throughout the US soon. We can however ship direct to the US via our website.

    Can A Drone Be A Prospecting Tool?

    On the weekend I was in an area of pine plantations and detecting over where trees had been removed and the ground ripped by dozers. I flew the drone and could see colour changes of the soil (ironstone bands and old diggings that had been covered by pines). I then followed a gully which lead me to some diggings that I hadnt seen before and arent on maps. The drone is working out real well! On a side note, it was quite windy and I think if I had bought the Mavick instead of the Phantom 4, I would have struggled to fly it.

    Can A Drone Be A Prospecting Tool?

    Hey Reg I have the Phantom 4 and its great over the goldfields. I just shoot it up above the treeline and have a scout around. As Im not using a 4x4, I also run it down tracks Im not sure of to see whether I will have access. I have spotted diggings and quartz reefs that I couldnt see from the road. I had looked at the Mavick but being smaller, its not quite as good in the strong winds that we often have once you get above the trees. Pat
