There has been a huge X class solar flare emanating from the sun in the last 24 hours or so. This can cause any metal detector to get excessive chatter on their machine over the next 36 hours or so, and if you're LUCKY you can have a power outage (I had three), and TONIGHT go outside after dark and look for the aurora borealis. Bring your camera! These solar flares cause HUGE EMI! Dealers across the country are getting complaints from folks about EMI on their machines. Thanks to Metalarchsc here on Tnet for bringing this up to me. Check out Spaceweather.com if you want the grimy details.
