Equinox 800 - A little outing to try some new settings. Silver -

May 12, 2020 05:49PM avatar
I had to run into town for a couple errands this morning and thought I'd take along a detector and swing past a couple detecting sites if I had some extra time.

There was time, so I grabbed the 800 and did a quick hunt (1-1.5 hrs) at a Park on Monte's list from last years Ogden WTHO.

Very first target was a deep War Nickel (8") , followed by a Wheatie (5 1/2") and then a Mercury Dime (5"). I managed one shallow clad dime and a nickel to round out the finds. Just a little bit of trash.

I was looking for masked targets and was trying out some settings I'd started experimenting with following the last Equinox software update - the Fe2 settings. Lowering the reactivity and Iron bias had me moving slow as usual. I am pleased with the results.

A funny side note; the coins were found in the same general area of the park, but weren't close to each other. They were all minted in San Francisco in 1945. cool smiley

Detector - EQ800.

Settings -

Park I
50 Tones (I usually run 5 tones)
No discrimination (none, zero, zilch)
Sensitivity - 24
Ground balanced - 19
Noise cancelled - 0
Reactivity - 4 ( I usually run 6)
Iron Bias - Fe2 - 0 (I usually run Fe = 2 or Fe2 = 4, which are supposed to be close to equivalent )
Factory Wireless Headphones
EQX11 coil.

Ground was moist but not wet. (Dirt did not adhere to the hands).
