I just got my new E-trac a couple of weeks ago, I have one hunt under my belt. This is where I need to be in the classroom.

You have a lot of experienced e Trac users to draw information from.

I have been going through the manual and I have the E-Trac emulator load on my laptop. So I read a little until I think know how to do something and then work it through the emulator until I get it right and then go to the detector and do the same thing there.

I was working one editing and making patterns manually. So I have made several patterns for the common older US coins I may find around here. Some worked and some didn't.

So this morning I done my book and emulator time on how to do the auto accept pattern maker. This evening I took that to the back yard with the detector and my sample coins and worked on that a couple of hours. That seemed to me the way to go.

So am I on the right track? My hope is I will have a coin pattern that will knock out a lot of trash and give me a clean shot at some nice silver coins. One of my manual made single pixel patterns I made, I was swing over my sample silver coins and I noticed my silver quarter was getting a really short tone compared to the other silvers I had laid out. So I went into edit auto accept single pixel and swing over the quarter a few times and cleaned the signal right up.
