Is It All About Recovery Speed? Here are my Silver Cache EQ800 results.

December 26, 2018 02:10AM avatar
In separate 'stacks' I had 1 silver dollar, a dollar and a silver half, 2 silver dollars, 3 silver dollars, 4 silver dollars and 5+.

I set my EQ800 up in my standard fashion. Park 1, 5 tones, -9 to 0 are discriminated, recovery is 6, iron bias is 2. Since I am in the house, I did a noise cancel.

Results:

$1 = Yes
$1.50 = Yes
$2 = Yes,
$3 = Yes, but the audio starts to clip.
$4 = No
$5 or more = No
$1 + 5 halves = No

I had this same result with my Park 2 program. It is set for 50 tones, -9 to 0 are discriminated, recovery is 6, iron bias is 2. I did a noise cancel.

My results for my Park 2 program were the same. Two silver dollars is detectable, but when I move to $3 there is some audio clipping to the signal. Four silver dollars is not detectable.

If I knock over the pile, so that the coins are no longer vertically stacked, they become detectable. If I place the stack on edge, I can detect the silver dollars only from 1 direction, (the long way), with a back and forth sweep. If I sweep across the coins the short way, the audio clips and they are rejected. When on edge, the target ID reads low.

What Can I do about this?

I did find an option on the EQ800 to adjust that allows 100% acceptance with my discrimination set normally. It is my Recovery Speed. I have my recovery speed currently set to 6, Maximum is 8. Minimum is 1. Six allows my 800 to get very good depth & still separate well. It is a good regular hunt setting. If I lower my Recovery Speed to 3, I get a perfect tone on a tall stack of silver $'s with a slightly skewed Target ID. It reads in the Square Tab area of my meter. If I lower my Recover Speed to 2, I get great audio and the Target ID increases to the low penny range. If I lower it to 1, the lowest setting, great tone and the Target ID increases to the Quarter range. It I increase the setting from 3 to 4, I can no longer detect 4 or more silver $'s.

Another option I have on the EQ800 is to remove all discrimination. It is accomplished using the Horseshoe or "U" button immediately left of the pinpoint button. If I select this option, any number of silver $'s are detected in any direction. HOWEVER - As I move from $2 to $3, the signal starts to roll over to the other side of my Target ID and now shows up in both the high "coin" and the 'iron' segment of my display. It seemed to stick to the -6 to -5 area of my Target ID regardless of how many $$$ were stacked. going to 4 coins pushes everything into this iron range.

Summary:

At least with my EQ800, this characteristic seems to be related to the Recovery Speed of the Machine. I can deal with it 3 ways. First, lower my recovery speed to 3 or less. Second, use the "all metal" Horseshoe option. Third, make a change to my current discrimination to include -6 to -5.

Is Recovery Rate directly related to this Problem ?

5 should work but 6 is what I use to match 6 coins in the Half & Dollar stack.
