  1. Whites Dual Field Gain, Threshold and Headphones Questions

    Well I figured it out. I tried every thing I could think of and the headphones were still screaming at me randomly so I took them off and put them in my hand so I could record the noise and suddenly it was reduced. When I put them on my head it got worse again. IT WAS THE HEADPHONE WIRE. When...
  2. Whites Dual Field Gain, Threshold and Headphones Questions

    Straight to Oregon from Thailand. Not cheap. They said it was my only option. They are saying that the DF left the factory perfect after the repair and that all the falsing and erratic behavior is normal and attributable to user error or mishandling and that it does not warrant another...
  3. Whites Dual Field Gain, Threshold and Headphones Questions

    Yep sent it in and got it back. Took it out today and now the threshold pot is loose but if you start to turn it up or down it runs all the way to max or min on its own. Amazingly the "repair" made it worse. Seems like they gave me a new coil too but the packing slip is not clear so hard to...
  4. Whites Dual Field Gain, Threshold and Headphones Questions

    I have a new Dual Field. Used it less than a dozen times at two locations. I have a few questions as I am new to the machine. First I notice that the threshhold knob is "sticky" meaning when I turn it to where I want it it rotates itself counter clockwise a few millimeters making it difficult...

    Page 35 from Andy Sabisch's book. Factory Beach Preset: Recovery Fast OFF "..intended to pick good targets from amongst trash and heavily littered sites." Recovery fast clips the length of your audio signal to ready the matching for another nearby target. No reason it should be on at the...

  7. CTX 3030 can't detect stainless chains?

    Yes, these chains were found with my ATP so another machine should pick them up and no, they are not small chains at all. Also, it's not the steel I want. Where I live, valuable amulets (some made of stone) are often hung on steel chains so, yeah I would like to be able to detect them.
  8. CTX 3030 can't detect stainless chains?

    I found several stainless chains with my old ATP and was doing some air testing with my 3030 using a stock coil, settings wide open (so I thought) and the CTX won't detect three different balled up stainless chains. All are moderately thick 18" chains. Is that normal? Thanks ladies and gents.
