Total finds from yesterday.
Once on the beach I had a problem with moths, loads of the blighters flying around my head torch, clipping my eyes, nose and face with their wings. This night detecting is sure an experience but in a way quite pleasant, but being the wuss I am I have to admit I did find it a bit eerie on my own and was more relaxed when it started to get lighter.
Anyways, so what did I find with my new XP Deus settings I went there to test.... not a lot really, but the settings performed well up on the dry sand/shingle. The problem I had is that I didn't walk over much to find or it was too deep. Found a total of £4.87 in decimal money and thee old 1930/40s sixpences. Also three weights and a swivel. Not much I know for 6 hours detecting but as the old saying goes, you have to walk over it to find it.
Three sixpenny bits from the 1930-40s.
The setting I used yesterday were:
....Tone 1, 191
....Tone 2, 197
....Tone 3, 791
...TH Power 3
IRON VOLUME 3
AUDIO RESPONSE 5
Keep in mind I'm no expert and this is only what I copied, in fact I don't understand some of it, but it seems to perform well and at the moment I enjoy using the settings above. I'm always on the lookout for good tips on setting up the Deus if you have any.
