I've seen several post concerning the operating frequency of the C$. Without using names or titles, some time back I was enquiring about DPA technology. I was speaking with a person who should know this machine inside/out. I was then told (well, more like "almost" told-wink..wink) without even asking, nor being on the subject of frequency that; The C$ was like the CZ's a Dual VLF emitter. True or false...I have no idea, but I wonder if anyone else has been told the same?

I have always guessed....

it's probably like the Excel frequency, which is published But engineering is not my thing at all so I'm just guessing.....

Update..this may be of interest

I found the following on a well known site and have copied and pasted portions of it here. Take a look underneath the heading of Features, on the seventh line down???

My guess is that it uses 1 frequency in disk mode, and a different one in all metal. It will hit some targets in all metal mode, that it don't see in disk or pinpoint mode. Mostly hot rock types of targets. I run disk mode with nothing disked out, not even iron.
I'll stick to my guess until Fisher lets the facts out. hehe

Here is a 3 scope scans of a few of the Fisher units.
The first one is a Coinstrike.
The second one a 1270
The third one a CZ
As you can see the signal from the CZ is quite a bit different from the single freq. C$, and the 1270.
You have to admit, Fisher managed to keep interest up with this subject. This multi. frequency thing certainly has a lot of people mystified, and it

Simple enough...Thanks Mr. Bill

They were just quick scans, holding the cam. in one hand, and the pickup coil for the scope in the other.
All kidding aside, I remember reading something from Fisher a long while back of it being 7khz. on the C$. I didn't give it much thought at the time.
Lot's were mystified about it because the performance was up there with all of them. So they were looking for a answer, and they assumed it was multi-freq. No one gave it a thought that it could be from good circuit design.
It doesn't necessary have to be multi-freq to be top performing.
I wish I knew a little more about this, it's certainly a nice running detector.
Have a nice day
Mr. Bill

Thanks for the post, neat to see the frequency shift! HH

I know we've talked about before that everyone thinks a bunch of arrows going into the ground has gutta be the best. So with Fisher saying the C$ is "proprietary" it leaves everyone guessing
