one more tidbit--OPERATOR

May 14, 2020 09:03AM
i made a entry to a thread here in response to Monte's observations. ... Operator.. i truly believe in knowing a unit and its capabilities. my Silver Sabre Plus is simple, and i can really work it and know the language, where targets fall out etc... as we get older, our mind may not be as sharp. sometimes i forget to set the iron audio on the AT Pro. a friend and i forgot it has a freq shift and were cross talking to each other. i forgot how to adjust the balance manually the other day, had to refresh with manual. i do read a lot of manuals and specs on a lot of units. i have also been put to sleep twice for serious surgeries recently, and like my wife who has had many.. it has affected my functioning i think. Her dad had start of Alzheimer and went full blown never made it home after knee replacement at 86 and us telling them dont do it.. he had cognitive disruptions after previous surgeries. he spent almost two years before he died, basically clueless and dysfunctional. then his current widow/ wife did the same after surgery with a start of Alzheimer before hand. its scary.

from what i read, SimplEx is exactly that. simple and also efficient. My MXT was so much easier to work than my friends DFX. we both went to AT PRO and he sold his pro and went to AT Max. it has a learning curve too. lot of features. but not too bad however in a hurry sometimes i forget one to adjust . i cannot recall things as quick and have developed an alphabet system where i start with A and letters behind it to recall names sometimes. its frustrating. and i think anesthesia has enhanced it.

Operator-- my guru would wax me with a cheap unit and me with a better one.. and i learned over the years, its not AS much what you got, its how you use it to a big degree. it all adds up to the satisfying performance or dismal finds. operator doing everything right then location where there is something to find. and a good machine is a plus but the first two must be met. all machines find something. i want something easy, new efficient affordable and fit most of my needs. i dont own a lot or want a lot in life, just peace of mind and a little enjoyment. wife daughters grandkids dogs good friends and metal detectors. just my thoughts.
