    DFX SETTINGS FOR DEPTH?

    HI everyone i have been hunting for about two years with the dfx and love it. but only been hunting the beach for about a year or so. i seem to be doing okay on the beach but i think i could be doing better,can anyone give me a setting that can get me a little deeper on the beach i have been getting dimes at about 8" is their a setting that would go deeper. and yes i do find jewelery on the beach i have found about 12 gold rings since last year. my best was a 2kt saphire\w-2diamonds 18ktgold thanks for any help.

    2 Frequency (correlate) OFF
    V.D.I Normalized ON
    1 Frequency (3 khz) OFF
    1 Frequency (15 khz) ON

    A pal used this and he had never had a DFX in his hand before he reported average target depth at 8", I was there; they where quite strong signals.
    And one small coin on edge at around 3-4". He borrowed my DFX.

    For even more depth use Mixed mode. (If you can stand it)

    I think that's one of my deepest programs. DFXonly.com has plenty programs to try.
    The other deep programs I use are hard on the ears; not for long use in trashy areas.
    Geologists are gneiss, tuff, and a little wacke.

    Re: DFX SETTINGS FOR DEPTH?

    Glad to hear, I can in my ground barely get out any deeper then 8" with that program. (due to mineralization)
    Seems to suit your area perfectly with that depth.

    Congrats on the finds.

    Donno, try.

    But the XLT isn't the same as the DFX, keep that in mind.
