    I revisit a lot of my hot spots in the spring when the weeds are all dead and knocked down and a lot of times I find more. That depends what your site is like though, a lot of the old home sites I've hunted are pretty weedy in the summer/fall.
    When i first bought the Nox I ran sensitivity as high as possible, 24/25. Similar to my old beep and dig machine. Eventually learned that the high sensitivity masked out a lot of the deep good targets. Ended up settling on Park1 and 21 as my standard sensitivity. Then my quality finds Increased substantially. If there is a high potential site with lots of iron, typical 1800ís homesite around me, I will do a hunt where I lower sensitivity down to 15 and switch to Field2 and it has been great for finding more shallow midtones that were masked by iron with the higher sensitivity. Or keep Park1 and lower sensitivity to 15 and try for that partially masked hightone. (Similar effect to using sniper coil)

    So, i have been running Field 2 with sensitivity around 16.. Even when correctly ground balanced and noise cancelled, i can't be doing with the chatter around 20 sensitivity. Freaks me out.
    Is recovery speed affecting my depth ? i put it to 3 (nox 600) ...
    Must get the bigger coil..only have the stock rims at the minute.
    As the days fly past will we lose our grasp, Or fuse it in the sun?

    I think recovery speed 2 (600) provides easier to comprehend tones for general purposes. Depth is not effected adversely for me.
