  1. I was expeiencing the same thing. I realized that if I put my cell phone in aitplane mode or turn it off the chattering would stop. Have you tried this?
  2. Trust goes a long way. I am very confident that Nokta will support their products. So much in fact I just got a Simplex today as backup! It is awesome. Thanks Nokta!
  3. I thought it would be cool to have one for backup or for tag alongs who want a good easy to use detector. Any tips for the simplex I should know?
  4. Lol, I couldn't believe it. Every Legend has an Achilles heal. I am going to miss my baby when it goes to the hospital....
  5. So I was talking to the owner of a little shop whose house is right next to the store. the House Seemed old so I asked for permission to detect. Came back the next day and the shop/homeowner was curious and he hung around quite a bit while I was hunting. Nice guy and we got talking. At one point he asked me if my detector was a "good" one. I said yeah, very good, and he asked how much it cost so I told him.... around 700... Five seconds later I hit on a alminum can and get a massive signal on the Legend......and the speaker just died. I knew as soon as it happened it was toast. I just told the guy, they are a good company, and that I wasn't bothered in the least. Stupid can killed the Legend. lol
  6. Looks legendary. Can't wait to hear more!
  7. What we have here is a FAILURE to DISCRIMINATE!! Buford D Pussbag 🤣
  8. I figured it out. It was my cell phone. If I shut it off the detector stops flipping out and its all good. Once I did shut the phone off it was smooth sailing all day. I have a S22 Ultra 5G.
  9. Nope. Its not emi. This is old land. No worries. I will see what NM has to say.
  10. Yep, thought of that and even in single freq it still chatters. No setting seems to matter, recovery, channel, mode, gain, nothing will stop it. It does seem to start overloading when I am focusing on trying to detect in lots of iron, but when it gets in this state I can't shake it. When it happens even holding the coil 4 feet off the ground doesn't stop the chattering. No power lines or anything around. In fact that is kind of what I would expect if I was directly under a high power line. but again, I detected these spots over and over and then one random time the chattering starts.
  11. Hey, thanks for the response. I am now at 1.08 and it still randomly does this. Oddly enough I have done whole days where I don't have this issue, like at my main permission, but then the next day I am out there and the detector goes mad for seemingly no reason and changing settings doesn't help. It chatters like crazy and maybe it just stops and goes away, sometimes it doesn't. I don't think it is the ground or the soil, or the mineralization because when I am going along and it is working fine the chattering starts and even where I was not having the chattering before, now it is chattering. It is like the detector goes into a feedback loop of some sort.
  12. Updated on a second machine. Haven't tested it yet. Thanks to those who reached out to help
  13. And again, the update wont install. Brand new laptop. It is a USB issue but who knows. I am going to try my main desktop. Surprised they didn't fix this. Hope the update is better than the updater.
  14. You know, you could restore that bad boy. Get some new wheels, paint job. Every guy should have a project car. Lol Get some tiny cinder blocks to jack it up.
  15. Awesome. Reminds me of the hotwheels I had as a yute. But I don’t think I ever saw this one. Super cool. I love the red ring on the tires.
  16. His tests seem very promising. Can't wait to recheck old permission with the new settings. Oh man and bring on the 10x5....
  17. Thanks, and thank you for your awesome posts in virtually any thread. I appreciate your experience and experiences.
  18. Awesome news Dilek! I can't wait to try it! If you want to slip me the update in the DMs, I would love to test it. 🙂 Im not a youtuber or anything but I would be glad to provide feedback. Either way the videos I have seen from HistoryRevisited look extremely positive. Glad I didn't listen to the critics. I love my Legend.
  19. Hi, SO I have been using the Legend and learning it. Finding cool stuff and overall the Legend is doing a great job. One thing I have noticed though is some odd behavior. Lets say I find an iffy signal in an Iron infested area. I will typically scan the iffy signal, change angle, scan again trying to see if the iffy signal tightens up at all. Sometimes, I will do this and the detector will start chattering. Sometimes when this happens I can just lift the coil off the ground and it will settle down sometimes it wont. When this happens and it doesn't settle down I will try changing the settings, ground balancing, channel scanning and nothing works. Even lowering gain doesn't help much.. Odder still I can leave the area where this is happening, wait until the chatter stops and go back to where I heard it and everything is fine. It is almost like it gets overloaded by all the iron and mixed signals and loses its mind. I can't seem to figure out a solid reason why this happens, Anybody have any thoughts? Thanks!
  20. Fantastic post. I agree with your view. Makes sense that the PBs that are found east were brought back. Dates line up.
  21. I did read one article, like a research journel and there was one guy who suggested that they might have been manufactured at least partially in Connecticut. But the prevailing school of thought is they spread widely as indian trade tokens. Many having been found in Indian burial sites. I imagine because they got them cheap and they looked cool. I mean, a Phoenix is pretty cool. Lol I love a bit of history mystery. Oh, I just remembered the home owner told me that one of the prior owners was a civil war Gettysburg vet who was a horder of sorts. Could be it was collected by this guy who liked to hang onto junk. Just a thought. Intriguing.....
  22. Thank you very much for that document, I had alread found and read it. I appreciate the work it took to compile that data. How it got to NH in my hole will remain a mystery. A fun one. Definitely my coolest find since starting detecting. And although I wouldn't sell it, my most valuable find.
  23. Yeah, it has a crazy mysterious history and finding one on the east coast seems even more bizarre. And on my permission it is even crazier. I have not found one single old coin here. One Wheatie. So I know it has been hunted or at least coin shooters had their day. Either way, a real fathers day treat I will treasure. Here is a better pic. Im afraid to clean it.
