A month of High Frequency searching

Post by alloverover »

So, its been a good month, an interesting month, a month to the day with the round 9" high frequency coil for the Deus, to be honest the first time I have taken it off was today, just to see how the black 9" was on a site I am searching, the first thing I thought was" blimey, that's heavy" :)) can you imagine, my muscle mass must be wasting away with the new (to me) coil :)) .

The pics speak for themselves but ive loved it, its been ( even more ) exciting every time ive been out lately and I know its found a lot of things I wouldn't of found withought it,,,,but maybe ive not found some other things I would of with another coil,,,,I don't know, but ive loved every minute of using it, that's all I can say...……...blimey, this is now sounding more like a review when all I wanted to do was share my months finds and gladness to be alive with you all :)) :)) :)) ::g

Ive been running it at 54khz in whatever program CD, ive lowered it a couple of times but not for long as ive just thought I might as well put another coil on x;
The small silvers I would say have been down to around 5" but its some of the heavier targets that have had really impressive depth, the nice Constantine II was around 9" , equal ended brooch about 10" and crotal bell a little deeper but am not getting loads of targets at that depth which I don't really understand as obviously there are more targets at that depth though its just some that get picked up x; :D ::g

That's a really fine show for a month's detecting. Given that January produced something less than ideal conditions for detecting, it's an exceptional result. ::g With the finds being made using a new type of coil and under a variety of conditions, I believe it says quite a bit about operator know how too.

I take it you're happy with the coil then :D Regards ss47

Thanks ss, yep, I suppose there is a bit of know how but the coil is really doing it for me, its so sensitive, I was always a Tesoro man before XP, used the LOBO for years, to me this is like a LOBO on steroids :D ::g

Bruce, I have been out at least as much as normal, as I say, I was and am excited to get out with the hf coil, so have been making an extra effort, I was working 20 mins away from my fields for a week so darted off over lunch to have a quick search whenever I could :D

Certainly can't argue about Tesoro's, a much underrated machine of it's day, used one for 20 odd yrs.

Neoww, what d'you wanna go and do that to me for? There was I, agonising for ages about which coil to get, I decide on the x35 and then you put that lot up x; Cue yet more entire evenings of yeah but no but yeah but...

Cracking finds and I just love that strap end. And the pin. And the brooch. And pretty much everything else, really.

Yeh, we all have bad months where we just find junk like that. As above, stick at it and try not to get too demotivated. =))

A brilliant month's work Phil and a year's worth for some. A couple of 'finds of the month' candidates there, but the strap-end is aesthetically my pick of the bunch.

The crotal bell is a doozy... transformed well from a ferrero rocher! :))

Great collection of stuff Phil....you are clearly enjoying the new coil. It is great when your detecting gets a fillip and rejuvenation with a new piece of kit. I tend to think its not always JUST the new kit in itself but the new enthusiasm and positive vibe it adds to our mental attitude.

I have to admit i haven't been out much since Christmas what with illness, then work, then weather. However, I am pretty certain that my last months best finds are probably on a par with the ones you have set aside as unworthy. :)) I've only had a few pretty average hammies and a couple of worn early milled silvers and the rest is assorted toot.
Glad to see someone doing the biz. lucky dog. :D

Ahh Tesoros....I have had three altogether. Such a trend-setter back in the day. My GMP always felt like it had tesoro in its DNA. So i guess the Deus is the same.

Very well done there Phil,
Most of it found when you should be working or doing jobs at home in this weather I suspect!?
A great assortment of finds mate, good luck for more.

It just seems to me to be like that, a couple of sites ive battered all over winter, heavy mineralized Roman site and a small medieval/post medieval trading site that ive had a lot of small silver from both of them have been standing for months, I was getting very few signals with the 9" black coil as I had dug them all but with the hf I started finding on them again, I must also point out that I updated software from 3.2 to 5.2 whatever at the same time as getting the hf coil, so how much that has to do with it I cant be sure.
In a sentence the hf has done exactly what I bought it for, finding more stuff on mineralized sites and sites I know have a lot of small silver coins on ::g
I must admit though I wasn't doing too well this afternoon till I found the Lizzie but I am putting that down to last nights booze and the co-codamol I'm on for a suspected broken foot :)) :)) ::g

That is a lovely sharp lizzy in your last post.
This thread makes me wonder about setting the equinox on a high frequency for a couple of mineralised ares I have.
