Spent some time going back over old posts regarding operation etc...................Good thing.
Then read the manual I downloaded and able to digest what I read. It all made sense having used
many detectors over the years both (TR/VLF/Pulse) analog and digital. The big thing was sorting out the controls.
What they do and how and when, why to adjust them. Instead of using keypad push buttons and menu systems to navigate thru to make adjustments. The V5 has switches and knobs, you can see where to set them and make minor adjustments on the fly.

Over all an interesting machine. I can definitely see why this can be a challenge for those that can't get their head around the controls. Kind of like some folks can't get the hang of using a Pi with many control functions.

From what I have read about ground balancing, thinking some tuning control improvement maybe of benefit. Think I have the parts if needed.

Too bad, the 7" optional coil that was going to be made for the Blisstool detectors were not produced. Too bad, right about that time Blisstool was swept under the rug.
As a winter project, might be able to produce one. Also found out, coils were made specifically for each unit, so you couldn't buy another coil, so to speak. Unless you give unit serial number so they can match up a coil on the shelf.... Reality is the coils were mass produced within a given specific tolerance. So any of the other coils produced will work. That opens possibles, the coils were generic tuned like Tesoro coils, interchangeable, no circuit board within the coil.

Will know more when it arrives and I get to play with it.

I dig it with a Nokta/Makro product.
