Here's an update on the D2 9" coil at the spots with underground EMI and a lot of iron I've been hunting.
I was not able to run any of the multi-frequency programs. No matter what I tried the machine went completely bonkers. Frequency scan didn't help at all.
But it ran great in single frequency. I put it in the Fast 40 program and bumped the frequency down to 17 kHz and it was very stable, seemed to be the sweet spot to combat EMI at this location. I was able to run sens at 97 as well with almost no chatter.
I'm going to try to get back to this spot in the next few weeks with the 11" coil to see if there is any difference. Overall I was impressed with how stable I was able to get it with the EMI, even though I had to be in a SF. I was able to pull 8 buttons, a KG, a sweet Masonic cuff link, and a few other relics. I barely scratched the surface of this machines capabilities and I'm already liking it.
I do admit, I chose this site knowing if I got it stable in the EMI there was going to be some good finds. Plus, I used a D1 for 6 years so I'm picking it up pretty quick.
