    Memorable Day with Etrac

    I have been detecting for over 26 years and today, I had one of my best days variety wise. I started the day off with a deep wheatie and my second coin was a real beauty, a clear date 1928 Standing Liberty quarter. Two more wheats before a Buffalo nickel. Ten feet away, a nice mercury dime...

    Etrac-Pounded Park What Happens Next?

    I have been using my new Legend for the last couple of weeks and I am starting to believe in this detector. I found a handful of wheat pennies and loads of nickels with the Legend at my favorite park. Last Friday I decided to grab the Etrac and grid some small areas of this park where I have...

    Etrac Still Viable?

    I had a cool morning so I took the "old" Etrac to my heavily hunted park. I was not expecting much, but was hoping for at least a wheatie or two. Recently, I get skunked at this park at least one out of three times. The glory days are long gone. The first two coins were old, green wheats that...

    Two Times Out with Repaired Etrac

    I got my Etrac back from the repair center a week ago and I have used it twice for a total of four hours. First, it is great to have it back functioning like new and I have so much confidence in it, that it would be hard to use another detector. Last Tuesday I only hunted for less than two hours...

    Got Etrac Back From Repair

    Well, it took a month to get my Etrac repaired, but all seems good now. When the tech finally got my Etrac in his hands, you could not ask for a better experience. He kept me informed daily and was not ready to send it back until he was sure it was functioning correctly. Good news was no...

    Broke Etrac

    Last winter I started looking for what I consider the best coin detector I have ever used, the Etrac. I finally found a low use, mint condition Etrac from one of the forum sponsors. I could not wait for spring and I was not disappointed. I immediately started finding silver and wheat pennies...

    High Voltage Warning

    I have been using the stock re-chargeable battery on my Etrac for the last two months with no problems. This battery was brand new in March of this year. Yesterday when I powered the Etrac up, I got a warning saying the voltage was too high and the detector would not power on. I turned it on...

    First Try of 7 Inch Concentric Coil on Anfibio Multi

    Finally a break in the weather, so I hooked up the new 7 inch concentric coil on my Multi. I mainly hunt coin in parks, fairground, and schools so I am bombarded with all sorts of modern trash. These places are absolutely loaded with every sort of pull tab and bottle caps. I have tried many dd...

    Teaching A New Guy About Detecting

    Last week I sold a metal detector to a local young man. I spent about an hour showing him how to use it in my test garden. Mind you, this guy has never swung a detector and I did not feel that he had even a basic "grasp" of what I was attempting to teach or show him. Yesterday I got an email...

    Miccus 71 Phones

    Several years back, I bought the Miccus 71 wireless phones for the Equinox 600 I had. As I remember they were exactly like the Minelab wireless phones. They worked perfectly with the 600. I sold that detector to a local guy. He called me last night and told me the phones were acting up. I...

    The Effects of Ground Mineralization

    First, let me set the scene. I have my favorite go to detecting place and I have had great finds and many finds from this park. I have had several detectors that plain would not ground balance here. I never really knew why until I started using detector with ground mineral...

    Test Garden

    I know some people don't like or believe a test garden is a good idea. I would rather use a garden than air tests. I planted my garden years ago and when I get a new detector, I can play with the adjustments, swing speed, and etc over actual coins buried at different depths. I have always had...

    Had A Strange Dig

    I got out to my favorite park Wed. and had a rare type of dig. I got the perfect 12-13 nickel signal on the 800 Nox. When I stuck my Lesche digger in the ground to start digging, it sort of cut with no resistance. In short order, I figured out that I was following the outline of someone's...

    Headphone Adapter

    I got a headphone adapter for Xmas for a backup to the wireless phones. I hooked it up today and it does not work. The manual (page 58) states" screw in adapter and headphone icon will appear on upper right screen" I am not getting the icon, nor are my wired phones working. Has anyone used the...

    Gold Numbers

    I just read a post in the "todays finds" forum about a person finding a palladium ring with his Nox. He said the numbers were 8-10. I had usually avoided these numbers as I am looking for coins. Nickels ring up 12-13 in my ground so this is why I have avoided digging these numbers. Two weeks...

    Pushing the Depth Limits of the 800

    The 800 continues to amaze me when I find older coins that are not all that deep, but have trash in the same hole. This usually happens to me at least once or twice a day. I have several parks where I have to have raw depth to get to the older coins. Finds are getting few and fewer in these...

    My Old F5 Is Back

    I recently bought my old F5 from the fellow I sold it to a couple of years back. It came with the stock coil which is just OK in my bad ground. Thanks to a forum member, I just got the 11 inch dd coil. This coil works great and today's short hunt verified just how good this combo is. I use three...

    Private Home Hunt with Apex

    I am not a "door knocker" so I am a public place hunter. My nephew just bought a late 1800's house and he gave me the go ahead to detect it before he gets it fixed up. There is a round about driveway and I started on the side closest to the main entrance. Clad coins were showing up every three...

    First Apex Hunt

    Had a beautiful fall morning so I took the Apex for it's first hunt. The first park had knee high grass. I really wanted to use the Apex here because it is not heavily hunted and there are usually scads of clad coins. A good place to get the feel for a new detector. I did find five copper...
