Understanding the Sovereign GT - basic to advanced settings - Part 1

April 24, 2012 05:00pm

I remember the first time I was brave enough to turn my Sovereign GT sensitivity control knob out of the auto position. I noticed straight away that the 12 o’clock position setting I had chosen still produced a stable threshold. Not the mass of threshold chattering and false signals I fully expected to hear. Every so often, I would receive a signal that did not really sound like a target. But regardless, I would stop to investigate the signal.

Cutting it fine with small coils

April 17, 2012 09:23am

Everyone that detects parks, ovals and old sites for coins and relics know that sometimes it is almost impossible to detect where there is a multitude of bad targets in the ground. These trashy areas will wreak havoc when using larger coils as they can mask the good targets often found in close proximity to rusty iron, pull tabs etc. Most of the time I use the 11-inch Double-D stock Minelab coil with my E-TRAC, but recently I have been challenged by a couple of friends to give a smaller coil a run...

Which X-TERRA coil is best for me? - Part 3

April 13, 2012 04:10pm

There are several things to be considered when choosing a coil for your X-TERRA. In Part 1, I mentioned that larger coils detect larger targets deeper, small coils are more sensitive to smaller targets, concentric coils provide a more accurate TID, and Double-D coils separate targets better than comparably sized concentric coils.

A clean machine is a mean machine

Having worked closely with our service department now for nearly ten years, I’ve seen it all in terms of the condition of some detectors we get in. The broken and battered state of some of them is really mind boggling! I’m the first to say that a detector won’t instantly find you a wealth of treasures, as detectors are just a tool, but like any tradesman will tell you, you need to look after your tools.

Minelab metal detectors are built tough, and prototypes are put through some pretty rigorous tests, but they are not indestructible.
