high gain and normal or low gain and sharp? which go deeper?


Hello guys.. for relic hunting is better going with a powerlfull timing like sharp and go down with rx gain for let the gpx stable or is better going a less powerfull timing like normal and going with a higher rx?


Sharp and Normal timings generate a more powerful transmit yes, go for these timings and then adjust gain and other settings as needed. This principle works well for gold prospecting, assuming the ground isn’t heavily mineralised then the more powerful timings are the way to go.


Sharp with the lowest gain will be more advantageous than Normal with the highest gain.
If you can run in Sharp with little ground noise then most likely you can run a decent gain as well.......the limiting factor might be EMI in which case you may need to drop the gain. Sharp is a very powerful timing, Normal isn’t far behind. Experiment and see what you can get away with....start with the power settings and adjust downward if needed. The detector will tell you if it isn’t happy 👍
Why don't you try the different settings in the field on real targets. Your question will be answered.
