If pondering is your thing, here's some thoughts. . . . . .

1. Does Minelabs' Multi-IQ system of multi-frequency signal analysis work?

2. How would Monte verify that it works to his satisfaction?

3. Are there limits to Minelabs' signal analysis methods and equipment? (if it does work, where does it function best and worst)

4. IF the Multi-IQ signal analysis works, is it ANY BETTER than different methods of signal analysis being used by Nokta/Makro, Fisher, White's, XP, Garrett, etc, etc.


**********


This got me to thinking about proofs and how would I go about verifying the functionality of the Multi-IQ system. What tests can I conjure up that would verify that my Multi-IQ is functioning properly vs. a unit that was not. ???

Some would say that the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. Is iit? I'm pretty handy with any detector. I have other detectors that are excellent as well. (see list below) Am I finding targets with my 800 that I wouldn't find with my other detectors?

Let me look at how I'm doing with my 800. It has been available to the consumer for about 26 months now, I've had mine for just a bit over 2 years.

Is my 800 finding the "stuff" left behind by 40-50 years of previous detectors and those using them? So far, Yes.

Am I finding good non-ferrous targets co-located with ferrous targets ? Frequently.

Am I finding good non-ferrous targets near large iron objects? Yes.

Am I finding good non-ferrous targets in and among other unwanted non-ferrous targets? Yes. (This is one reason I have come to like using 5 tones on my 800, it helps with sorting through the non-ferrous garbage.)

Am I finding these good non-ferrous targets at shallow, mid-depth and full depth? Yes.

Does any of this mean anything to anybody other than me? Probably Not. I don't really think anybody gives two shakes of a dead cat how I'm doing with any of my detectors; except maybe my wife. She likes when I come home beaming after making a cool find.

Well. lots of questions to ponder and no answers for you Monte. Sorry to disappoint. winking smiley

I hope everybody else is finding time and social spacing to get out and do a little detecting. thumbs up
