Does anyone have the numbers used in Andy's program so I can set up my machine like that? Or if nothing else a screen shot?

Here is an explanation I found by Andy. Great program

Based on several requests for this explanation as to what the basis for the Pattern I have been using for coin hunting with pretty good success, I put the following image and legend together.

If you want to download the Pattern to try on your E-Trac, here is the post you can find it:,891768

The following legend refers to the image at the end of the post.


[A] This area rejects CO values from 00 to 03 (top to bottom). This rejects foil and is low enough so as to not loose gold rings. Chains are hard enough to hit with an FBS detector so this pattern plays the odds and rejects this region based on the amount of trash it rejects while still hitting small gold rings

(B) This is the iron reject and rejects everything from the FE = 28 line to the bottom. Any less and iron bleeds thru any more and you can cut confusing signals from good targets that are adjacent to ferrous trash and pass them up

[C] This line which rejects the CO = 50 line (top to bottom) is added to eliminate hot rocks in my area . . . you may have to play with this if yours are different. This elimination is much like the eliminate +95 on the DFX & XLT from Whites

[D] This is an odd area that took some tweaking to define. It is primarily designed to get rid of most not all iron falses that can come from deep or old pieces of iron. Starting from the CO = 00 line (all the way to the left), it rejects the area from FE = 00 to FE = 08 up to the CO = 32 point. Then it jogs up to reject FE = 03 and goes over to CO = 37. From there it goes back up to FE = 00 and accepts the rest of the area over to the CO = 50 line defined by [C] above.

[E] This are was opened back up to ensure larger denomination silver coins would not be rejected since they come off the FE = 12 line.

If you want to use the pattern, download it to your computer, open the Xchange application, open the pattern and upload it to your E-Trac. I can attached the settings file I use if anyone is interested but again, this is what works for me in my area . . . . you can look it over before simply uploading it and using it as gospel. It works for me . . . you may prefer some subtle changes for your area or preferences.

Once you have the Pattern the way you want it and the settings, you can save the whole collection as one of the 4 MY MODE files on your E-Trac to recall it later.

Let me know if there are any questions, comments or feedback on how it works for you
