OPERATOR

September 23, 2019 01:00PM
I hunt the same places over and over and over. all year long, wet dry cold hot leafy covered high grass mowed. when i change machines and coils, i find stuff. when i run a different setting i find stuff. but not everytime. i have found that changing machines i may sweep at the wrong speed sometimes. makes a difference. sometimes my simple two knob will find what my digital wont. same place.

cant explain. its got to be ME. Operator.

the old saying, hold your mouth different , it will work. well an exaggerated truth, but a truth. OPERATOR . Period. the only way to clean out a place would be to sift it every grain of dirt.

I think settings and sweep speed and getting the target under the coil are the main thing. the coil design, size, and strength of the unit for depth or separation.

all machines find something.

the cheapest machine i own, a Compadre, has found shallow to medium targets other machines i own have passed up, and i think its due to the little coil and ed180, partly, low disc, and sweep speed the other. and mainly due to OPERATOR.

my guru that taught me would use a simple machine and come right behind me to show me what i missed. OPERATOR.
adjust your machine accordingly. practice good habits. do appropriate settings.

In rain or snow drought whatever the soil maybe be like, be a good OPERATOR.
