Bad or Faint Signals

Post by harddisk25 » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:03 am

Hi, me and my partner had faint or bad signals lately on copper, cupro nickle and silver finds, but strong on iron and aluminum. we've been on wet pasture and disked fields lately, anyone know why?

Both detectors have been fully charged, mine is a 5MX and the other is a 3MX.

Thanks



Tomo

Thanks for the reply Tomo. I'm currently using Minelab RPG headphones and my partner is using a pair of Boots Audio H2500. As for the settings I'll adjust them a bit more next time out and see what happens.

Just to add to Tomo's link above, I've found that one of the best solutions (and certainly the cheapest) to 'low volume target signals, is to try a pair of the standard lightweight XP back-phones currently available for under £12. :D (Ok so I'm a Yorkshireman)! They have extremely good clarity and also feature an in-line volume control. Any of the main dealers stock them as does this forum's auction site. You won't be disappointed ::g Regards ss47
