Multi Vs Single. thinking ... and What Frequency? thinking

April 07, 2020 07:34PM avatar
1. Why Offer Single frequency at all if the Multi-frequency is all that and then some?

Because, there may come a day when EMI (electromagnetic interference) may impact my ability to hunt using the preferred multi-frequency mode. I can attempt to change to one of 5 single frequencies hopefully not impacted by the interference and still be able to hunt.

2. Wouldn't I be able to hunt if I had a selectable frequency detector like the Nokta/Makro Anfibio, XP Deus, and so forth that can be set to one of three frequencies? Yes, provided I can find a frequency that is not impacted by the interference. (same for the Equinox)

3. What does multi-frequency offer that my single frequency detectors don't?

The ability to analyze a target in a dirt matrix using multiple frequencies and COMPARE each frequencies response against the other frequency responses to better identify the target(s) under the coil to greater depths AND to better separate a possible target from the background signal of the dirt AND to better separate a possible target from other unwanted targets. Again, better identification of a possible target. You can't do this type of signal comparison with 1 frequency.

4. Does the Equinox have to ground balance?

For most locations NO. Provided there is not strong / extreme ground mineral causing falsing. The Equinox is able to separate the ground signal from possible targets by constantly comparing the ground / target responses from each frequency to each other. If the ground is highly mineralized, the Equinox should be ground balanced using the coil bob method over clean ground OR it can be manually set to a specific number on the scale.

5. Does my 800 make the bed in the morning, take the trash out, mow the lawn, wash the clothes and dishes and cook my breakfast, lunch and dinner?

It would, if my wife would let my detectors in the house. So, until that time. I will have to do those chores myself. grinning smiley

As an additional thought, as much as I DO like my 800 and have found that it is more than a jack-of-all-trades / master of none, I DO HAVE OTHER DETECTORS that I use and in some circumstances, prefer, to my 800. My Deus and CoRe aren't there for decoration.

Just One More Good Target Before I Go . . . .

More finds with a new frequency. Other settings might differ.
