  4. Minelab RCB RX Coil Amplifier Board

    Reaching out to the forum, especially those who have built their own coils for the sovereign/excal detectors. I am interested in building/modifying a few coils for my blue excal in an attempt to customize them for my particular area and gain the best depth and stability. With my research so...
  5. Minelab Excalibur 1000 not working on wet sand and seawater

    I took my minelab Excalibur 1000 to the beach and it would not work on the wet sand. All you could hear is the threshold and when the coil touched the wet sand, it would go silent as if there was iron. I placed a quarter at 4 in and it wouldn't pick it up. I adjusted the sensitivity many times...

  11. How long should my Excal Battery Last before Replacement?

    Ok, I've had my Excalibur II for over 3 yrs now and wondering how many yrs should I get out of it? Would appreciate hearing from the Old Timers whom have gone through a few Excal batteries.
  12. How long should I charge my Excalibur II?

    Since the Excal doesn’t have a full-charge indicator, it is often a guessing game to fully charge the battery but not overcharge it and decrease battery life. For a while, I was charging my Excal 1hr per 1hr use (i.e., 1:1). After getting stuck with a low battery on a lonely stretch of beach...
  13. Finally made it into the water!

    Hi fellow detectors, I started detecting back in 2010, but stopped shortly after that. MIssed it but I had to go overseas due to family illness issues. I want to get back to doing this again, and would really appreciate a little help here. I have been looking for a "how to" on the earbuds mod...
  19. do you pick up everything on the beach?

    I met a man the the other day who had an excalibur detector. He has been at this a long time. He said he picks up everything because you can never know for sure. He said once it sounded like a bottle cap and he picked it up any way and it was a ring. I was going to get an excalibur to avoid...
