    Metal Detecting
    The learning curve on the Etrac just about drove me nuts !! On more than one occasion I wanted to wrap the thing around the tree. Had some good help along the way from a friend that already owned an Etrac and has always used Minelab detectors. Thinking I may have finally figured this thing out.

    If you created a test bed you can see what is true. Use Presets, or where a set size of nail or foil is just knocked out, so the detector is set exactly the same for each test. Note best depths in drought conditions, normal weather and wet. Most detectors do not like very (bone) dry ground but waterlogged conditions also can have a negative effect. Slightly damp seems best and modern technology doesn't seem to have changed anything. In very dry ground some of the older (pre motion) detectors operating down at the one kHz level seemed to suffer less depth loss in the dry but they were none discriminators which is another factor to consider.

    Seems like my machines work better in moist ground.

    My deepest coin find was in soggy wet ground with standing water.....just sayin...
    Never really paid much attention because I have a tendancy not to detect when it's bone dry ground....unless I'm out in the woods in the middle of nowhere...and I find very few coins..mostly looking for relics that are big anyhow.

    I think...therefore I am.
