  1. There's a post june 10, 2014 by Reno Chris in minelab metal detectors titled .... if Your GPX Appears Broken, Try This.....where he explains how to do factory reset.
  2. Congratulations on finding such a beautiful nugget ! I bet it didn't fall far from the tree, you must be close to the source.
  3. I think it is same coil, mine even says NEL on the cable where it connects to the coil housing. I have the multi frequency model, just got it this winter. it was my first hunt with it. I really like it.
  4. thank you very much ! I've pulled 11 barber dimes and 1 barber quarter from Missoula in the last 2 years and today I got 1926 standing liberty quarter with my t2 se and the 5" coil from a trashy heavily hunted small park in the historic Rattlesnake district. My second one, found my first slq at the Hamilton fair grounds last year.
  5. a spore print is a way to identify a mushroom, never eat any mushroom unless your 100 percent sure you have it identified as some can kill with a single bite ingested. a morel resembles a sponge somewhat and occur in areas that burned the previous year
  6. I was in Spokane Washington recently and the weather was finally nice and some of the snow had melted and l had a couple hrs. to kill so I grabbed the xterra 705 with a CORS strike multi freq. coil and went to work in a vacant lot in a old neighborhood the city had cleared of houses. about 20 min. into it this barber dime popped out of the ground. The lot was extremely trashy , l ran the 705 in 7.5 khz, discriminate all metal with 99 tones. I was getting iron tones every couple inches but still managed to pull this coin with the big coil. My first silver coin of 2019. Just wanted to share . Best of luck this year to everyone on the forum !
  7. think I'll sell my MXT and get a Simplex............not ! LOL . think I'll keep the MXT and get a Simplex !!! it sure looks nice for the price !!!
  8. I have the F19 and used it for a couple seasons. I found the vdi numbers to be rock solid, also the 10 X 5 coil did very well in heavy trash. I also like the adjustable width notch discrimination , ferrous volume control and the adjustable tone break for cherry picking silver coins. The cons were the s rod. I prefer my G2+ , only difference between the two that I can tell is the rod and coil supplied . I found my first seated dime and buffalo nickel with my f19. 😊 The best of luck with whatever detector you choose !
  9. I live in Missoula, about an hour drive away for me. Flathead lake has surface area of 197 sq. mi. The water level is dropped way down every spring to allow for storage of run off from the surrounding mountains. This was my first time detecting there as I usually concentrate on old sidewalk strips, schools and parks in MIssoula.
  10. Great true story, Research really pays off. would be nice to dig some relics, but finding locations and obtaining permission can be difficult as only private land can be legally hunted. BLM post's warning signs all over the forests here in Montana
  11. I guess all detectors need an array of coils to match varied conditions as they usually only come with one. no disputing the fact the at pro is a good machine, but if you want the lower or higher freq. you need to buy different detector not just a coil. I've purchased numerous aftermarket coils for most of the detectors I own. I have used NEL, CORS, and detech and they all seem to work great. I'd recommend the ultimate 13 coil for your at pro. it's light weight and performance make it a top contender. I have one for my whites detectors and am very happy with it. The best of luck to you in 2019 !
  12. xterra 705 a money pit ? I got mine used on ebay under $300, with 10.5" round hf coil . it has found gold and silver jewelry, 1800's silver coins. Indian head penny, and a 1906 v nickel. Never had any problems with the detector. It must have found the previous owner a pile of treasure because it looked beat when I got it.
  13. I own a couple vintage detectors. I might put batteries in them once every couple yrs. and wave a coin or gold nugget in front of the coil to listen to it beep. other than that, they just sit there collecting dust in the closet or on a shelf. Unless your really into collecting vintage detectors or can get it for dirt cheap, my advice is save the money towards the 24k. The $168 US seems to be about fair from what I've seen on ebay.
