Monte what program are u using the MI6 in? For depth turn it to program 3. Then adjust sensitivity until it starts falsing a bit then turn down till stable. Was deeper than my carrots this way. I never tried air tests though. Just out in the park

Joel, thanks for the reminder. I had it on the wrong program or sensitivity setting and have corrected it ... I think. Maybe it's me because I'm just not into all the computer and shone and other 'modern' electronic gadgetry ... other than metal detectors ... and I find my Mi6 Pinpointer to be the most annoying to tinker with and adjust. The Garrett AT Pro-Pointer is easier, and my Nokta / Makro Pulse-Dive Pointer has to be the simplest of them all.

I plan to head out for a little while before it heats up and use the ORX and Mi-6 to see if I ended up with the best adjustments. The Mi-6 works okay, and I like the audio and ability to hear it in my headphones, but it is still the least favorite Pinpointer of the three I use.

Pinpointer? -- Yes, three of them. -- Which, and why do I like them?
