    I don't have an EQ, but when things get weird, it's always been my coil connection or my batteries.

    The 5 frequencies makes the Equinox more stable while giving a really good indication of what is under the coil. My 600 runs quiet as far as EMI interference is concerned.
    Diggn' is my business....and business is good!

    A great trick with bottle caps and a Nox is to change the frequency real quick. In multi-frequency mode a bottle cap come up with numbers in the mid teens, like a nickel or a menís gold wedding band. But if you simply push the frequency button to 10k hertz the number will jump up to the low or mid 20s if itís a bottle cap. This is a great method that saves me a lot of time.

    I found that if I started in Park 1, as it is pre-programmed, I did very well. I feel that staying in that mode, not trying to act like the expert with it, and just learn it as you go works very well. The first time out with mine, I found a silver ring (first for this site), as well as 8 silver(clad) coins, and precious little trash. I've used mine several times now, and find it is great! Don't change the settings unless necessary. I've owned several Minelabs over the years, & never really made friends with them, but this is definitely a winner if you will give it a chance.
    I've also found Clive Clynick's book on the Equinox to be very good, and fortunately, I got it and read it while waiting on my Equinox to arrive.
