  1. Well you can't have too many coils! 😉
  2. That's not a bad price at all. That's the same as my Gaia GPS Premium app. It looks like the apps are very similar. Since I'm mostly a city hunter, I don't use any apps much, but they are nice to have on hand when I'm out in the boonies, which I hope to do more after the snow season. Now if I could just find that Incinerator 5000 Mega Snow Melting/Ground Thawing/Trash Burning Heated Coil (Patent Pending) for XP-D2... in the 10x5" size! 😎
  3. I don't know why nice would be inappropriate, I think it's a darn nice find. Congrats on the hunk of silver and a very unusual pendant! 😎
  4. Great first season with your D2, Brad, congrats on all the lovely gold! I can't wait to see what your second season looks like, well done!
  5. I had to edit my previous post. What I meant to say is that I'm finding PWM audio can give more clues to target shape than Square audio. This isn't always the case, but I find it helps me with sorting rounded objects from non-rounded objects much of the time. However, aluminum is a curse on all metal detectorists! 😉
  6. That was my error which I have edited. I meant to say that PWM audio will give more clues to the target's shape than Square (not Pitch) audio sometimes. What I mean by that is the more subtle ampitude response of PWM audio ramps up and down slower and can give softer "fuzzy" sounding responses that can vary quite a bit coming off the edges of non-round objects, but gives a cleaner, more focused sound on rounded objects. Square audio has a gated fast ramping up and down sound which can make even the most mangled can slaw sound like a round target such as rings and coins.
  7. At the about the 3:30 mark in the video Debby says and shows that the ground tracking is on, so it has auto ground tracking.
  8. I also ran across these on Ebay today: https://www.ebay.com/itm/295290609568?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=JAGdIq5uSOS&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=C9pH38O6TWK&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY https://www.ebay.com/itm/275424135198?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=csWhyvH3RAa&sssrc=2047675&ssuid=C9pH38O6TWK&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  9. Nice white gold ring, Compass, well done!
  10. Great finds and it looks like a much lower trash to treasure ratio than usual. Congrats on the silver and gold, well done!
  11. Great hunts, strick, congrats on the silver, gold, and WWII relics, well done!
  12. Thank You for putting out such good and informative content, Gary! I rewatch a lot of your videos to catch the nuggets of wisdom I may have missed. It has helped me immensely.
  13. I've been experimenting with Pitch in PWM lately and there seems to be some extra information coming through that is filtered out in square tones. This is particularly useful when trying to sort aluminum trash from coins and rings as the PWM audio will give more clues to the target's shape than Square audio will sometimes.
  14. Glad to see you getting out again, Jeff and congrats on the rings, well done!
  15. More cool relic finds, F350! Love the buttons and spur pieces! Were you running your modded General program?
  16. Just get the carbon fiber Simplex lower shaft and problem solved. 😎
  17. How many of us D2 users would use the Go Terrain App if it was available in the US? It looks cool and all but that's not why I bought the D2 and I hardly ever even use my Tect O Trak app. If I'm working a large site over time, I use it, but for casual hunts, I don't. What is the price of the Go Terrain subscription? It seems like OnX Hunt that F350 mentioned would be a more cost effective alternative. Another consideration is, how much battery and DSP does Go Terrain use on the D2? I'm sure it would be very useful for some D2 users, but personally I can live without it, but also that's just from my perspective.
  18. Dang, F350, you're on a roll! Congrats on the beautiful gold band, that's so cool and congrats on the first gold with the D2! Well done!
  19. Thank you! I ordered one... let the experiment begin!
  20. It seems to have stalled out in the European theater. I use the Tect O Trak app on my iPhone. It's available for Android too and has similar functions as the Go Terrain app, but it's $9 (if I remember correctly) one time charge and no subscription needed. It works pretty well for me when I remember to use it. 😏 http://historyhunters.co.uk/tectotrak-ios
  21. That looks like a dream hunt to me and loved the video too! It makes me feel like I'm there with you when you find something cool. It's the next best thing to being there. Well done!
  22. Yeah it was just an idea, maybe not a good idea, but an idea. 😄 Now the wheels are turning.... but I'm not going to hack my coil cover just yet. Is a 9" coil cover even available by itself yet?
