The Minelab SDC 2300 – My First Impression

June 06, 2014 07:21pm

Great things come in small packages! When a box showed up from Minelab recently the first thing that struck me was how small the box was. Like a kid at Christmas I tore the box open and lifted out my new toy – a Minelab SDC 2300 detector. There is not a box full of parts to assemble, just this little detector all folded up, and nothing quite prepares a person for just how small the SDC 2300 is the first time you see it.

Un prospecteur retrouve des vestiges sous marins de la bataille de Sagone

April 11, 2014 11:00pm

Un bateau, et plus précisément une « flûte », coulée le 1er mai 1811 retrouvé par un plongeur à l’aide d’un détecteur de métaux, c’est ce que nous allons vous raconter dans ces quelques pages. 

Cette fois ci notre amis Mudy Diver a frappé très fort le tout dans les règles de l’art c'est-à-dire sous contrôle de l’archéologie sous marine. Voici donc le travail de toute une équipe et de plusieurs campagnes de fouilles enfin récompensé.

A Tsunami of Coins

April 04, 2014 09:28pm

A very warm day was expected. Like every day at 12 during my break time, I would take out my X-TERRA 705 for a walk in the fields with the kind permission of the local producers.

However, when I arrived at the car, it was so warm that I told myself that I better have my meal at the edge of the water where its shady and leave my detector in the trunk. But of course I couldn’t resist to do some detecting.

Ok, I had only one hour and 15 minutes to do some detecting, including finishing up my lunch. From one shady area to another, it suddenly occurred to me to go to the direction of the forest. I normally wouldn’t even go there because I knew I would not find anything. Nevertheless, I was thinking that at least I could do some detecting where it is shady.

Tracking, Motion, and Sweep Speed – Part 1

February 14, 2014 10:27am

With the introduction of the Motion settings on the GPX series detectors, there has been a bit of confusion among some users as to what it actually does, and also how it differs from the Tracking speed selection. I’ll start with explaining Tracking speeds.
