Re: Pull tab question

Lucky enough for me pulltabs are not a problem as such here inland in the UK,of course you will find them on the beaches as that is the main location that folks would use can for refreshments,but not inland on most farm permissions.

Alas these types of things can be a right pain in the rear end,but not alot really can be done about it,its all aprt and parcel of detecting,after all it is a metal item and we are using a metal detector,iron for the most part is the only non desirable that can be discriminated out but only if its small size wise like say nails,but if its larger items like say horse shoes then those large items will make any detector scream out as a good targets,its just the way it is.

Getting onto alloy/foil targets those are 'ones' that i 'never notch' or 'discriminate out' and the reason being is that our 'silver hammered' coins come in that range,if you attempt to knock out foil which you of course can do,then you will miss these desirable targets that we are after.

I personally run my VLF machines and i have alot of them for many detecting scenarios and ground conditions,at almost zero or as low as possible discrimination and in some cases zero,as i dont want too miss anything,i dig almost all target signals especially those deep whisper targets as those have a high probability of being the most desirable,for me it has to come out i just cannot walk past a 'iffy' signal,some of my best finds over the years have been right on the limit depth wise and also signals right in the foil/alloy target range,silver for the best part of 2000 years can/could vary silver content wise,so they can give different readings either on a screen or audio through the headphones,i rely on audio for the most part almost exclusively as beyond a certain depth TID using a screen is a total waste of time anyway,but audio will always give some indication that a target is in the hole at greater depth,even when the audio signal is 'iffy' you can still rely on the good old audio threshold too give you the very last chance of nailing that deep target.This is why i always use a decent set of full cup headphones for those deep whisper signals.

Not alot basically you can do about eliminating pulltabs without loosing out on decent desirable targets,just glad that i dont have that major problem.

Some of the tools of the trade that i use for different site situations here in the UK.

I've found that that the pull tab range of conductivity is sometimes a great targetthumbs up
