    Drat! I knew I was missing something. I always used pitch hold on the ETrac, the very slightest signal changes the tone of the threshold, so it's unmissable. I've not been using it on the CTX, time...

    If it took more than a couple of people to hide stuff, someone will have talked and someone will have been back. That goes for Oak Island and gold trains. The gold train story only exists because...

    Davidhod replied to a thread Go Minelabing Day in Rally Reports
    I'm booked for Scotland from the 21st, so it's not really feasible for me. Still, a week of gold panning should make up for it :)

    Davidhod replied to a thread New ctx coils in Minelab CTX 3030
