Heritage Interviews

March 31, 2011 02:06pm

I’m proud to introduce a new series of interviews, which will be hosted on MLOtv. These interviews are brought to you in collaboration with Minelab metal detectors.

The concept is simple; we travel to finders of important discoveries and interview them for MLOtv. The first of these interviews will be of British finders, but it’s our intention to expand this series worldwide.

Gain, what’s a good level to start from?

March 18, 2011 12:12pm

On page 63 in the GPX 5000 Instruction Manual, Gain is described as being:

“…..a function that allows the GPX Series to be optimised for differing conditions; controlling the sensitivity of the detector to its environment and targets.”

Basically speaking this means you can use the Gain control to lift or brighten the response from a signal, a little like increasing the volume of your detector but in a more dynamic way.

Finding Civil War military camps: Getting permission

March 16, 2011 03:28pm

Finding Civil War military camps from ages past requires a number of things. Among those are firstly, research, which includes books, diaries, maps and time. Secondly, you'll need permission to access land where you feel a camp or camps may be located. Third, equipment! A good metal detector that can handle multiple soil conditions, navigate ferrous trash with good discrimination, and go deep. We can break these three categories into separate discussions, so I'll start with getting permission, something that is paramount to legal metal detecting.

Pitch Hold in E-TRAC & Explorer SE Pro

March 11, 2011 02:41pm

The Pitch Hold mode in the Response menu can be a very interesting choice of audio sound to use. While not for the faint-hearted due to its undulating audio, if a person is willing to give it time, the effort in learning its audio nuances will be well worthwhile. Essentially, it works because the pitch of the target signal will hold the Threshold hum sound until the next target is detected. i.e. the threshold mimics or adopts the tone relative to the conductivity of the target.
