    So Russia has 4 service centers and USA has 1

    According to the sticky post today. They must sell a lot more Minelabs in Russia than in the USA, I guess. Or the Russians are harder on them and need more repairs.

    XChange2 in Linux?

    Anyone using any Linux variant + XChange2? Any issues? No Way I'm ever allowing that spyware known as Win10 onto any of my computers and I plan on using Lubuntu on my next laptop.

    If you were going to buy a beach hunting book........

    Would you buy one (or a few) of Clive Clynick's or one (or a few) of Gary Draytons? Or does someone else do a better one? fwiw, I'm not a rookie at this- just looking to learn/improve.

    30 months FEDERAL Pen (Tom, a TVA case for you)

    Apologies to the board about posting with an offsite link. I appreciate the tolerance of the mods. You guys run a great board. I also apologize to those that lost their comments when the thread got deleted. Hope you post them again. Lets try that again: TVA is serious when they say no metal...

    6" vs stock vs 17" coils

    Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems to me that if you have several targets under any of those coils in a sweep, the CTX will tell you about them, displaying them in Target/Pinpoint Trace (assuming all other CTX settings are the same for each coil) as they should be. You'd have to sweep the...

    Ever see any studies/musings on Loss Rate at the beach?

    In the absence of old jewelry, I wonder what the jewelry loss rate is for beach-goers. Anyone ever see any posts by anyone trying to get a mathematical handle on how many beach/water play-hours it takes to have a jewelry loss? eg, 2000 people spending 5 hours at the beach would result in 4...

    How to run the LEAST filtering

    As I see it, there's the following boxes you can tick (or choices you can make) to add different filtering/processing in the CTX: 1) Recovery Fast 2) Recovery Deep 3) Seawater 4) Target Separation 5) Response 6) Tone ID Profile (?) 7) More/Less discrimination (?) 8.) anything else such as GPS...

    Bolt-on handle for scoop

    OK, I give up. for weeks I have hunted the internet for a simple vertical or near vertical clamp-on handle to try on my scoop but all I can find is some overly complicated monstrosity: and an overpriced one for 29+ Euros + shipping: . What I am looking for is a simple vertical clamp-on...

    Moving files out of XChange2

    I know I read somewhere how to move files out of the XChange2 program into an email or thumb drive but I cant find the thread. Can anyone point me to it or explain how to do it? Thanks.

    Recommend me a Vibra, please

    I'm looking at acquiring a Vibra-Quatic 2 for water pinpointing. It seems like the best model for the way I would use it. I don't do much beach (yet), but have a couple of river swimming holes near home that I want to work. There will be some larger rocks(think bowling ball size) that I'm going...

    Air testing for Sounds

    Since its too cold here (sub 0 tonite, and yeah I know that's shirtsleeves for you yankees) for me to go detecting for a while, I'm going to spend the rest of this evening studying the sounds that my Excal makes. I have all the items you find and hope to find to test (...
