  1. In my area I still struggle with people between my.....Plans. Missed the super early wake up this morning and waiting them to leave the fuc....g beach at a decent time before sunset. I might need a grenade or more🤬☢️
  2. I have such a hard time digging anything that doesn't fall between 40 and 65 that I can't imagine how many of these and other pieces I've gone over. Really kudos for your patience🧐
  3. The following is more of a modest technical report than the story of my latest session on the seafloor. Days ago I posted my (negative) impressions of the impact of beach programs on thin or open targets, comparing stainless steel necklaces and bracelets to gold on the ID scale. Briefly summarized, I found no way to achieve an efficient and stable setting that could be reused underwater in a salty environment. Based on P12 and after several modifications, I arrived at the only final setting that allowed me to conduct effective research. Assuming a pair of frequencies (never stated), we still know a limit of 14/24/40 kHz in the menu. However, I got the impression that in the P12 the sensitivity was higher having slightly more interference though on 24Khz and reduced sensitivity down to 88. This makes me think of a second frequency (less than 24 kHz, coupled as 14/24 rather than 4/14 in diving mode. Again, I assume that in P11 the behavior is less responsive to thin targets in spite changing on 40 kHz. And to finish, I add that no particular filter changed the audio noise for the better outside of a high value of reactivity on 2.5 . Here is a quick summary of the program. Reactivity 2.5 Sensitivity 90 Salt sens 8 Pitch tone Treshold 0 B.caps 0 Notch 0 Silencer 5 Iron vol 5 Disc 5.0 Audio filter 5 GB tracking Magnetic reject and underhere a common fish finally audible among way too noise reduced.
  4. I must say that reflecting on your statement I have like a suspicion about 10-11-12 programs now. I mean I am struggling to understand why in gold mode the reaction to the targets is radically different at the same frequency and settings? I have two hypotheses about this: the first is that although having 14/24/40 kHz frequency offsets, none of the 3 is actually what appears on the screen but way less instead, or the Salt sens filter and audio response act differently for the three beach programs. At least during a trivial air test, the targets must be read with an ID and from a reasonable distance. Not to mention that I used for test purpose a sensitivity level of 95🤐
  5. I'll try to make exactly the settings you're suggesting and compare with the program I use now. The fact is, with my settings, I can't see how this will improve if not begin worse when submerged 😒
  6. I can say that if on the remote and coil the cable is correctly placed, the signal and obviously the connection between the two is effective. Just this morning I had poor visibility in the water and as soon as I turned on the remote it said no coil 😒. Approached the coil I saw the end of the cable disconnected and simply repositioned the clamp on the wing of the coil .Instant recognition and off it went. By that I mean, if you cut the cable off one or both ends, you would lose the original supports that hold the ends of the cable in place.... That yes, it would create connection problems, unless you provide for creating a new rigid support with which to clamp the cable near the remote and coil 🫢
  7. I have never been a fan of cables coiled around the rod, although this is a natural consequence when with only 50cm in diving configuration, it is all we have. I would not cut the original antenna cable, but rather buy a couple of meters of RG 174 to make two sizes (one spare) and cut just enough between coil and remote . At that point it would also be unnecessary to go through the inside of the rod, and two clamps would be enough to solder the cable next to it.
  8. With 35 years of experience under your belt, I doubt you'll find it that hard to unearth any pieces 🫢... However, if you are used to pitch tone, you can try P13 Beach P and maybe modify something to stabilize a bit on the wetsand. Recently there was some discussion about lowering the A.R. to 3-4 and instead raising the audio filter to 4-5 , as well as keeping the reactivity a bit higher if you don't want too much audio noise. I have found it useful to raise it up to 1.5 sometimes, but I only use the Deus2 on the seabed 😌. I'd rather avoid any notch and high disc.level. Instead, decide to dig or not after checking the ID... 30 To 65 should be ok for most of the shines☢️ P.S. I forgot about your software version🤐... What I'm talking about is possible with the 1.0/1.1 update, sorry😐
  9. Actually, all of the remaining programs are available to use in freshwater if you try. I've seen recently a user with fast 40 program in a freshwater lake environment
