scott565 Posted October 28, 2019 Report Share Posted October 28, 2019 Hi All, Getting ready for a trip to SW US, and doing some preliminary testing on my GPX 5000. I have some test samples glued to a plastic chip that I use to verify the basics, but curiously, this one sample (0.16 gram , call it 2.5 grains) would not make a peep. Not only going over with coils, but even the coil edges did not register this one. The other , flatter 0.19 gram piece was detected by both coils. Using both NF 14 x 9 and 8x6 Sadie coils - got no response from either one. I was on a freshwater beach with the chips just on top of the sand - not too close to any interfering target. Settings were Mono, Fine Gold, Gain 11 or so, GB fixed ( i adjusted it for the area), Audio Deep, Response Normal, Search Mode General Stabilizer and Signal left at factory settings. Any thoughts on settings that could make small bits like that one more detectable? Thanks everyone! -Scott 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
