New to me Impact

June 25, 2018 09:25PM
I picked up a new to me Impact and having only the stock coil decided to try it in the yard. I can't seem to find a setting that is not chatty. DI3 is less chatty than some and VLX2 is a little less than that. I have decreesed the gain to just under 50 and it's chatty. I wouldn't be too bothered by this initial test exept that I can run my MXT Pro with the 950 coil at +1 or +2. The mineralization reading hase been in the 72 range and sometimes as low as 64.
I have the 7" coil on its way and hope that will help.
As a side note; it hits solid on all targets and is unmistakable amoungst the chatter from 4 to 90. The 90 was a half dollar As tested with the other coins, an 87 was a quarter at about 4", a 20 turned out to be a stainless steel knife, and a solid 60 was a melted ball (marble size) of what i believe to be alluminum and an 18 on a shallow rusty, round nail. I also tested my collection of coins and silver and gold items with the surprize being a solid 04 on the 14K gold pocket watch chain. A 1974 penny was a steady 72 even on an angle in the grass. All the other targets tested were steady in the VDI reading except for the the V and war nickle which seemed to fluctuate after a few passes. The reading would climb into the 60s in two different locations.
I did not have traking on and believe I kept most the settings at the stock settings, gain being the main exception.
Any sugestions?
