Ground condition

Not sure if this is a stupid question or not, but do detectors pick up more in wet and damp ground ?

Heheh, I thought that could be taken either way, too. :D

But I'm sure he meant that yes, wet/damp soil has greater conductivity than dry and so makes our time spent toiling in the fields that much more productive.

Nah. No such thing as a daft question in this game except, perhaps, "Where's the best place to find a hoard?"

It's all a constant learning curve, and this is the best place to ask any question, no matter how dopey you think it might be.

Sure I'll be asking some of them dopey questions . Just trying to reasearch things before making that choice of detector. Been buying a few other bits in the last couple of weeks well I'm checking things out

Hello John, It's actually been proven over the years, through extensive scientific and archaeological research into the subject, that the best place to find a hoard is in a 'hoard hole' :))
