DMC II B Transmit Power Question

Howdy All, I recently acquired a DMC II B and took it to a heavily picked colonial site today to try it out. Started out with transmit power set at 6. After a while I tried turning it up to 35 and threw down my test bullet to check everything out. The disc side beeped as it should but there was no change in the threshold side. Is this normal or have I got a problem? Thanks Steve

Check to see if you have your threshold barely audible. If you have it too high you won't notice a difference over a target.

Maybe you don't have the coil balanced right. Every time you turn the detector on you have to balance the coil (knobs on front of the machine). There are instructions on the Internet on how to do this. If you don't the detector won't right at all. On the 2BA Detector you only have to push a button and it does it for you. That is the newer model of the same machine.

Make sure the All Metal sensitivity is turned up. I have mine around 9.

Thanks for the advice. I haven't been able to get out and try it again but I suspect the problem is that I had the threshold up to high. I had tuned the coil exactly as the manual said to and I checked 3 times while I was out and it had stayed tuned. I'll let ya'll know how it goes. Thanks Again, steve

I recently did a comparison of depth with my Tesoro Tejon and my DMC IIB and the Tejon was hitting just as deep as the IIB and it so much lighter and easier to use so I am going sell the DMC IIB. I just put it in the classifieds if anyone is interested. It will be on Ebay later this week. Thanks for all of the advice and help. steve
