 Primary Interest:
 Prospecting
statement below is from the user manual of a Detector I recently acquired
FREQUENCY
The Golden Mask 7 could work at 4 frequencies  4, 14, 24 or 44 kHz. This makes the detec
tor a truly universal machine that will cover all the needs of a contemporary prospector.
In the menu, after each frequency, you will see a number at the third level of the menu.
This is the socalled “frequency shift”  a slight change in the main frequency that helps
eliminate EMI influence of interference's from other detectors nearby. The number could
be set from 0 to 8, the default is 4. Just change this number until you find the best value at
which the machine has best stability.
Can someone tell me if I am understanding this statement about the frequency shift in the GM7
If I am understanding the Frequency Shift correctly is this what it means about the (Frequency Shift) below is the way I am understanding the frequency Shift
I will use 14 KHz so say you are running the 14 KHz frequency, the default shift is 4 and it has 08 shift points, does this mean if you stay at the default setting of 4 on the Shift does it mean you are actually running in 14.4 KHz instead of 14.0 then say you switch the shift to 8 you are now running 14.8 KHz
what I stated is how I am understanding the Frequency Shift and if that is the case this GM7 is capable of running a whole lot more frequencies than I was aware of which to me would be a fantastic feature, the GM 7 runs 4, 14,24 and 44 KHz with 08 points of frequency shift and default of the four main frequencies with a 4 point shift in frequency would mean to me at the default settings would mean it is running 4.4, 14.4,24.4 and 44.4
Is that how you understand this or would it mean that 14 KHz frequency with a 4 point frequency shift is actually running 18 KHz, I am confused on the Frequencies and the Frequency shift, can anyone shed a little light on this for me
Thanks for Reading
