CTX 3030 Tech Question

Hi all.
Seeking to run an open screen inTTF in a lot of iron with coins masked by iron.

Can someone explain to me how in say 50 Conductive a copper penny will register ,in High trash mode ,opposed to TTF.Assume wide open screen.
Also and importantly how does a iron object register differently,if any .

I'm wondering how best to hunt out a site that has deep coins,alongside ALOT of trash and was wondering about this.
If masking from iron is THE problem will a different AUDIO selection(eg TTF or Combined) help and OR place the cursor in a different place.
Just to complicate things further.I feel iron will move around on the screen given the above coupled with different Search modes.

Thanks for any assistance.

To make it simple, Iron will make a grunt sound and the cursor will be on the bottom.You can get a wrap around, were it will be on top of the screen.The penny will have a higher tone and the cursor will be around 12/43. If the site has a lot of iron, I wouldn't hunt it with a wide open screen.I can't handle all the beeping.Use a screen with some discrimination to prevent wrap around, This is only my personal preference, I like to hunt trashy areas in combined and some discrimination.. I know other people do it differently. Try setting up a card with rusty nails and some good targets. At least you will have some idea of how it will react in different modes. Make a test garden if you haven't done so already. Have fun,
