    The New APEX Passed The Freezing Cold Test

    Went to a toboggan hill, and detected for two hours. In the past, using rechargeable NiMH batteries required me to attach a hot pack on the electronics to prevent the batteries from discharging from the cold. Not so with the APEX. I started with 4/4 bars battery indicator, and after 2 hours in...

    Thanks for all the thoughtful comments.

    Well, Here They Are.................... New Garrett APEX Coils

    That smaller 5" x 8" coil would sure come in handy right now. It slices through dry powder snow like a knife through butter, allowing me to still detect in 8" of snow, in the woods.

    Out Shooting Birds With The APEX And Got Several Good Shots!

    Winter has taken it's grip here in Edmonton. The gold producing river is nearly frozen. The ground in parks and school yards is hard as rock. Today, I celebrated winter with my Nikon Kodachrome, my Garrett APEX and a bag of sunflower seeds....a favorite food source for many birds, especially...

    First Signal "BAM!" Out Came A Silver Ring Using The APEX!

    Out after work for a quick hunt, as the time change doesn't give me too much light anymore. Temperatures are still above freezing, so a few more park hunts are still on the menu. This bumps up my totals to 24, 8 with the APEX. The APEX is turning into a ring vacuum.

    Trouble with my apex

    Have you reset the unit? Turn the unit on. Wait a few seconds, then hold the on/off button for several seconds until it beeps. That quite often fixes the unit. Every time you switch coils, you should do a reset. You didn't mention in your post where you turned it on. If in the house or backyard...

    Out Doing A Water Hunt In The Freezing Cold North Saskatchewan River

    I was using my relic shovel to dig up the coins. Deepest was about 6 inches. It's fun digging in a river for targets. The water washes away the sand and smaller stones in seconds, leaving the target in sight. And.....I was walking real slow and careful.

    Out Doing A Water Hunt In The Freezing Cold North Saskatchewan River

    Off today from work. Woke up at noon, and just had the detecting bug bite me hard, so, I headed to the river. It is still not frozen yet, however, the ice is starting to form along the edges. Luckily I wore my rubber boots, and wandered in the water at the shallow edge. I eyeballed some nice...

    gold signals

    Different Karat ratings....10K, 14K, 18K, 22K have different amounts of elements mixed with them for color and strength. A 24K ring is too soft and not practical. So, you will get different readings. Also the mass and size of a ring will affect the reading. So, what now? If you get a nice, even...

    Choosing The Right Frequency For The Right Targets

    Using multi-frequency mode, as on average, it does extremely well. For high conductors such as silver and copper coins, lower frequency is usually better, and that is validated with the silver dime in the histogram up above. It air tested at a greatest distance with 5 kHz. That tiny gold flake...
