Hi Oldwoodchuck,

I haven't used a Viking VK10 before but i'm sure someone that has will be able to help shortly. Any specs i have read online haven't listed the operating frequency either. Given that a Viking VK10 would have a fixed ground balance to average soil conditions found in the UK you would probably find that it may under preform in the US depending on the terrain you are searching. If you are interested in a switch on and go machine set to soil in the US, maybe a Garrett Ace 250 or similar may be worth considering. Viking are a UK company too so aftersales support may be difficult for you should something go wrong aswell. Hope this helps you come to a decision. :)

Regards
