Re: Coin shooting with the TDI
I like your videos Arizonaames. First video started with wind noise and then you had a lawn mower in the park. None of it your fault. I am learning how to make videos myself. I could never get used to using a PI in a park as well as you can.
Try to stay warm this winter.

The videos are no longer available. I'm having trouble discriminating trash after following all the guidelines posted. I went to the park the other day and the detector went crazy with signals and producing a lot of similar sounds to that of silver. After digging up multiple trash items I figured I had some more learning to do, but all forums say the same thing. I'm just trying to find the missing piece here because after lowering the ground balance to 2-3 and switching to high conductors I'm still getting really strong signals from trash. I appreciate your help

Are you running 25 micro secs? That should get rid of a bit of trash. GB on and balanced. If minerals are low then leave GB at around 3 and GB on and listen to the tones.
You are still going to get strong sigs from larger iron(that can sound like sil) and trash.
Just an opinion, I donot know much about the TDI

I can't see the videos so I don't know where you were using the TDI. I have a TDI also and live in Arizona. I'm going to guess you were in Michigan as there isn't anything old enough here in the parks to bother using a pulse unit, a VLF will get enough depth but with better discrimination..
