  1. This was the exact report. He not only went on dry sand but also was digging every target while learning the sounds.
  2. Just to clarify this point once for all: The only problem with the AQ of Deb was that the coil cable was not fixed tightly enough to the lower shaft; it was moving in the water and thus, generated the false signals. Tightly fixing the cable on the lower shaft is a general requirement for all sensitive detectors. Nothing to do with the Florida waters,. The 12" coil works perfectly in salted water. provided the pulse delay is slightly increased.
  3. If the chatting is already in those conditions in your backyard, one could suspect local EMI troubles. Try changing the pulse frequency on several positions at startup of the system and use the position generating the less noise..
  4. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Fisher.IMPULSE.AQ.Metal.detector Extracted and translated from there: What to plan for before buying the future Impulse AQ from Fisher: an appointment with his banker.(In the process a small gift for Madam, to pass the pill) a subscription to the gym, because if you are not used to digging holes of 40 cm or more, it will be useful. (Not to mention the filling, just as physical sometimes) to be done in good conditions, a suitable digging tool, sifting shovel, sand scoop, call it what you want, it must be part of the adventure
  5. Special thanks to JIim.🎺🎺 We were lost in space to guess what that could be 😒
  6. We have proven that the AQ in normal operative conditions works well in salted water even if there were some doubts about that. There are now a number of AQ users operating the system in sea waters without any problem. Also, the sea water in Florida is not much different from other parts of US coasts and Northern Europe coasts. Thus, we must conclude that there is a specific problem on YOUR system (and maybe on another one, who knows?) . Making a diagnosis of a problem needs a systematic procedure to eliminate the potential sources one at a time. The one left is then the
  7. Do not worry about that, in due time and if needed, you WILL get good support from us (euroteam)
  8. If you feel that you could get some EMI problems at your locations, you could try to change of pulse frequency at startup of the system. We think that Deborah has a problem specific to her own AQ system. Nothing to do with Florida waters. After reading her last (doubtful) report after exchanging her 12.5" coil, we do not know whether there is still a problem on her system (outside of the exchanged coil) or if it is a swing procedure problem. A PI system automatically re-calibrates when swinging with varying heights during the swing. It feels this as a change of ground conditions
  9. " I do realize this machine was designed for use in the wet salt sand at waters edge. the capability of the machine is limited when you enter the water with the 12.5 inch coil." This is a wrong assumption. If the AQ aggressively reacts with the coil in the sea water, the only conclusion is that there should be a fault in the system, most probably a shield discontinuity in the coil or in its lower cable plug. In that case, one has to report the case back to FTP.
  10. Note that the average salinity of sea water around the world (with a few higher or lower exceptions) is between 34 to 36 ppt Also, note that there is no exceptional salinity conditions along any coast of USA or Northern Europe. The only places where the salinity is high are the waters closed for a long time as the Dead sea, Mediterranean sea and some heavily salted lakes as well as the ocean where there are constant large winds which evaporate the water (Northern and southern Atlantic and Pacific) Alexandre will show the reactions of the system in waters of 42.7 ppt.
  11. Right!!! Prototype of the final version. Only change from the LTD version is the mechanical configuration of battery pod and enclosure. Electronic circuits, Coil assembly and Firmware code are strictly the same as on the LTD.
  12. Note that the reactions in the surf are only when the coil emerges in the bubbles. This is a normal re-calibration reaction of the system. Also, large changes of height over the ground due to the surf trigger re-calibrations. Alexandre shows that in the third video.
  13. The only issues in that condition have been reported by Joe and others, it is when the coil enters and leaves the surface of the water and also when the coil connector is partly submerged. When both are submerged, there is no problem.
