So is FBS 2 any better than the original FBS?

June 01, 2012 02:00pm

Well what a question to ask eh? The CTX 3030 has only been released in the last few days, unfair to ask it? I think not. However perhaps it is a little premature until we get all the reports from field tests and other users. I’m no techno-expert, but briefly FBS 2 utilises multiple frequency transmission and coil-to-detector data communication to locate targets in a wide variety of soil conditions. However, I would like to make a submission of my own relating to the efficiency of the new FBS 2. Of course at this stage this information relates purely to my own personal experience and no-one else’s... or does it?

CTX 3030 Combined Tone ID Profile – A UK detectorist’s perspective

May 31, 2012 04:30pm

One of the new Tone ID profiles is called Combined. This is something I was asking for during a minelabowners.com forum discussion; “E-TRAC 2 what do we want?”; I wrote, “Add a new sound process based on ferrous combined with conduct, which gives different ferrous tones to different metal targets (like the explorer does to a lesser degree.)”- 15th April 2010.

The CTX 3030 attitude

May 31, 2012 12:30am

Each detector has its own personality. As I continue to learn about the CTX 3030 I am aware that the detector imparts a certain attitude to the treasure hunter. As I detected a few North East Florida Beaches during Tropical Storm Beryl. The CTX 3030 performed seamlessly despite the challenging weather. From wind to rain to getting hit by a few high waves the CTX 3030 has a "can do... go anywhere" attitude. When a hurricane or storm hits the coast I like to hit between three to five beaches, so I can better focus in on a high potential erosion event.

CTX 3030 audio options

May 30, 2012 05:27pm

Different types of detecting call for different ways to hear targets, so the CTX 3030 has just about every imaginable option to hear your next great find.

For general detecting, or a bit of family fun, the internal speaker in the control panel is a great option...

Beach hunting with the CTX 3030 - Part 2

May 29, 2012 02:28pm

The detect screen on the CTX 3030 is a mine of information for a beach treasure hunter, everything you need to know while you are using the CTX 3030 on the beach is right there in front of you on the detect screen.

Continuing beach hunting in the factory preset beach mode you have at least three different ways of evaluating all targets that you find on the beach using the CTX 3030 metal detector. The first target evaluation is always made on first hearing the signal, by audio target tone thru the headphones, speaker or wireless audio module.

CTX 3030 Target Trace / Pinpoint Trace - Smartfind 2 - visually identifying multiple targets

May 28, 2012 11:42am

Those familiar with FBS technology are certainly aware of the information provided on the Smartfind screen. But in my opinion, the FBS2 technology supporting the CTX 3030 takes that to a whole new level. Smartfind 2 not only allows the user to see multiple targets under the coil simultaneously, the functionality known as “Target Trace” signifies the signal strength of each target with color coding. Both “Target Trace” and “Target Trace Pinpoint” can be activated by “long pressing” (3 seconds) the Detect button. You then simply scroll down and check the box to activate each mode.

CTX 3030 and the CTX 06 Smart Coil

May 25, 2012 05:12pm

My detecting has been taken to a whole new level by combining the 6-inch CTX 06 Smart Coil with the Minelab CTX 3030, a very lethal combination that I have aptly nicknamed “The Separator”.

It took some time to get used to swinging a 6-inch coil as you don’t cover much ground, a bit like painting a wall with an artist’s brush while concentrating very intently for the slightest signals. It is amazingly lethal due to the CTX 06 coil’s capability to move in between targets separating the ferrous from the non-ferrous with surgeon like precision

CTX 3030 Integrated GPS and Mapping

May 24, 2012 10:37am

You can now see why I haven’t been posting for a while. The team creating the CTX 3030 have put in a big effort to pull together all the features and technologies that make up this detector.

With the exception of my fridge, there is almost nothing that can’t be enhanced by adding GPS. The CTX 3030 has an integrated GPS that can...

Combined Tone ID Profile on the CTX 3030 – The best of both worlds

May 23, 2012 04:13pm

In my previous Treasure Talk blog post, I discussed new CTX 3030 functionality that allows the user to map the parameters of ferrous or conductive audio tones. The Combined Tone ID Profile allows the user to hear a combination of both ferrous and conductive tones. And, with the additional functionality provided by the CTX 3030, we can set the parameters for each.

CTX 3030 go detecting anywhere!

May 22, 2012 12:50pm

In our latest CTX 3030 video, Nenad Lonic explains the waterproof features of the CTX 3030 and provides some tips about how to prepare the detector for use in water.

This video should answer a lot of questions and discussions on the forums about the CTX 3030 and its waterproof features.
