Question for the nox owners
« on: May 07, 2018, 15:59 »
I had a session down the beach this morning and received a very faint signal which at first thought it was just the coil hitting some seaweed or the sand and there was no numbers showing on the screen.As I started digging the sound became progressively louder and registered on the screen.I thought it may have given off at least maybe some number on the screen on the first sweep with the very faint sound.Is that normal.I was running in factory settings.

Phil

Hi Phil,
It isn't normal but by the same token its not common. 
What is happening is the detector has been able to detect the material but the response was too weak for the software to identify it.

Thanks bicter for the reply.I forgot to mention in the post that the culprit was a twenty cent coin 14 inch`s deep.

If your prepared to dig deep don't worry about numbers and just listen to the signal and it's quality , if it firms up and starts to give you TID's as you dig down all the better .

ID numbers are really only indicators to me.  I react to the tone the detector makes and then look at the TID for some indication of what is there.  Especially when so many TID’s overlap. Especially with the Equinox on the beach, if it sings to you, there is a target. If it whispers then the target is deep.

Yep, thats a deep signal mate (what bicter said)
Most TID detectors will do that when the target is at the edge of its depth range
It knows there is something there but its beyond its range of a solid number

Yep, had a similar experience with a brass dog rego tag on its edge, gave a sound but no numbers, the deeper I dug the numbers started to come up & bingo, a keeper!
