Did a little testing with my 800 today here are some VID #'s

Did a little testing today with my 800 and got a few VID/Target ID's to share. They seemed to be pretty consistent regardless of frequency and mode, those factors mostly affected depth/sensitivity. These were all acquired with default park 1 settings, multi frequency and coil approx 3 inches above ground to try to remain consistent. Sorry my friends across the pond I dont have many of your coins to test with but will try to keep adding more in future.

Thanks for the chart. Looks like the zinc penny will fall right between two zones. The low conductive and the high conducive zone. Will probably make for some mixed sounds on targets in the zinc zone depending on how a person sets up the audio and discrimination.

Good point that does make a tight window... lots of settings to play with that might separate them better, this is just a noob trying to study it and learn lol

It would have been nice to have the real corroded zincs hit about 18-19 and the non corroded around 22-23. But hey they didn't ask me my opinion....Lol

good point again... the zinc I used here was pretty clean.. I think I will get one of my 2 billion corroded ones later to see how it hits :P

Some people on the Equinox facebook forums are pretty critical so far with this small sample of results (probably angry they dont have a machine yet) anyhow just wanted to make it known this was done simply for my studies to learn about the machine, and I decided to share with the world. Everyone here has been positive and I appreciate that. I just figure the more we share regardless of content the more is out there to help us all master the machine. Being I have had my machine about 24 hours now tops I am still learning obviously and this is just a step in that direction. Hope it helps someone. :)

bigelow, I know it sounds cliché and so I hate to say it, but "ignore the haters." ESPECIALLY on social media. Very little good comes from social media, IMO...

I avoid it like the plague...

Thank you for sharing what you did. You have had the machine for 24 hours, did some initial, cursory things for your own curiosity, and decided to share it with the world, just in case anyone is interested. And what do you get? CRITICISM?

Oh, well. Par for the course, I guess.
