    Speaker replacement

    After hearing and seeing all of the posts about poor quality screws and leaks Etc I decided to pull all the screws out of my detector and use divers silicone on all of the seals before a new season starts. Everything went fine until I got to the speaker cover on the back of the display, after...

    Xchange2 file that holds the finds data?

    Hi all, I have red through a bunch of Xchange2 posts, but can't find what I am looking for. I have a laptop that I used for all of my downloads from the CTX 3030. Unfortunately, the WIFI has recently given out on it and I can't sign in or see the finds plotted on Google Earth. I am wanting to...

    Thought I would share one.

    I got this one last weekend on a horse pasture behind an occupied old plantation house I frequently hunt. It was only about 4.5" down, but completely on edge, it was a screamer. Running FC, A+2, ID'd as a 12-42. I am digging a lot less trash and covering a lot more ground since the CTX class...

    After the class...

    My good to trash ratio has dramatically increased. Only found clad, but I found a handful of it, and only dug three trash targets. Oddly a two foot-long distributor wire, the end rang up like a nickel, a rusted one hole strap, and a piece of molten aluminum. Some of the pennies were...

    CTX 3030 Boot Camp

    I went to Andy Sabisch's CTX 3030 boot camp this past Sunday in Knoxville, and I was very impressed! The class was informal, but very informative. In the first hour alone he had covered a lot of the mistakes that I have been making, both from my lack of knowledge about the machine, and from...

    Havent posted in a WHILE.

    I have been looking for my first silver coin for 26 YEARS, I just found it earlier this month, a 1902 Barber dime, I was so happy I made a pendant out of it. Ironically I found it in the same front yard of the 1843 home site I have been hunting for 7 years now. I am calling it my $9000 dime...

    Saturday with the 17"

    My fears of it not running stable were unfounded. It ran GREAT in A+2 in GH's program. It is a bit weighty, and for the first time I noticed myself switching arms on occasion. I am guessing there isn't anything out there where I hunt deeper than the usual 7", because I didn't find anything...

    Went back to the old house Saturday

    The weather here was too nice not to. I am LOVING the 6" coil, it really separates things under it. I didn't find anything overly special, but the interesting thing is I have GRIDDED 10'X10' this area before with the SE Pro and didn't find much, just a TON of small bits of iron, all of a sudden...

    Anyone having luck with the 17" coil?

    Mine came in Monday and of course I had to take it out to the back yard and give it a try in my coin garden. The garden is at least 5 years old, with P, N, D, & Q's buried in 2" increments from 2" to 12". I was able to pick up NADA!!! I am using the GH program, with sensitivity set to A, I...

    Saturdays hunt at the old house..

    I used the 6" coil exclusively and I have to say, I really like it. Great separation! I still dug too much large iron from 10" down but got some interesting targets too. Among the junk was a hand full of square nails, a flattened copper cylinder about 4" X 2", some type of triangular piece of...

    The new Xchange 2 upgrade

    Has anyone done it with find data on your computer? I have been hunting an 1849 home site for a month now with the CTX 3030 and have a LOT of find points, geo hunts, etc. and can't afford to loose the data. I have way too much to transfer back to the detector for "safekeeping", does anyone know...

    iPhone App.

    I just noticed that Minelab just updated the "Minelab Treasure Tracker" app to include the manual for the CTX 3030. I used this app a lot with the SE Pro for its GPS capability. I don't use it nearly as often now since the CTX 3030 has built in GPS, but it will be real nice to have the manual...

    More junk from the 1849 home

    Hey all, I went out to the still lived in 1849 home site today to see if I could turn up some luck (or my first silver ever) no luck, and no silver. I have been hitting that place for the last 4 years with a Garrett 1350, an Explorer SE, an Explorer SE Pro, an Excalibur 2, and now the CTX 3030...

    Went out Saturday again..

    Still hitting the 1849 house in Mississippi, four years now, and still haven't found any coins older than the 1919 Wheetie I found last week... in fact I think the total for that place is 6 coins total. I am dying for my first silver, but all I seem to find is nails, hose nozzle parts, more...

    Went out Saturday

    I took the CTX 3030 to a house built in 1849 to see what I could find. The CTX worked great, but still no silver. I was using Gonehunting's settings - GREAT settings BTW, thank you Gonehunting! If you are a relic hunter you will love the machine, the home site supposedly saw CW action and the...

    A funny thing about the headphone problem...

    My Koss UR-30's that came with my MINELAB Explorer SE Pro will NOT turn off the speaker in the new MINELAB CTX 3030, but the ultralight GARRETT's will... Go figure. Sorry, I just thought that was a bit humorous... HH Joe

    First day out with the new machine

    I went to an old home site (1849) I have been hitting for about 3 years now with an SE Pro. I was hoping to find my first coin from the site with the CTX 3030, but all I found is the usual junk I found with the Se Pro, but noticed the CTX 3030 was able to pick up non ferrous junk through all the...

    Back to the old house..

    I went back and concentrated on the pond area today. Three coins.. A 1944P war nickel (3rd nickel and 2nd war nickel from this little pond) and three pennies, 1953D, 1961D, 1963D. All spectacularly cruddy. The war nickel cleaned up nice though. I am convinced this whole site has been pounded to...

    The old house...

    Found my share of can slaw, but decided to try something different. There is a pond behind the house, and since it has been about 260 degrees here for the last couple of months with no rain, there was very little water left. The story is it was dug in the 1880's by mule team. I figured why not...
