X-TERRA... Controlling the search coil

Here is a link to my most recent blog post over Minelab's Treasure Talk.

http://www.minelab.com/usa/treasure-talk/x-terra-controlling-the-search-coil

"X-TERRA... Controlling the search coil" explains proper sweep techniques, how the field of detection differs between concentric and DD coils, and tips that will help reduce "false signals". HH Randy



You'll never know for sure......unless you dig it! HH "Digger"




After more than 46-years of detecting, and having owned dozens of different detectors, I've come to the conclusion that maintaining success in the field is largely dependent on three things..... choice of site, acquiring a proper skill set for the detector and the detector itself..... in that order. Research, practice and persistence. There are no substitutes.

The search coil is the metal-detecting part of your detector. It

As an additional,larger searchcoils will give better depth with larger targets and better ground coverage. However, sensitivity to smaller objects may be sacrificed. Smaller searchcoils will offer greater sensitivity to smaller objects and improved target separation in trashy soil.

Yes, there are dozens of posts on this forum regarding coil size, shape, freq and design.

And since you are new here, as a side note, I deleted the "promotional" link you had included in your last post. We don't allow that on this forum. Thanks. HH Randy
