Frequency Change

Post by Ricky p » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:47 pm

Hi

after using my new Garrett 300i a few times now, with success, i have found more coins & 1 massive horseshoe must 1/2 inch thick at least, oh and other things like a penknife and a cotter pin.

i started altering the frequency, started at 1, then moved it to 4, have i imagined it or would my detector find more stuff because it started to beep more on No4 setting !!

your in anticipation Ricky p

hello, i thought the frequency adjustment was to stop interference with other detectors, what is the Khz of the 300i?

Placebo


Just happens you shifted frequencies as you gone over a busier part of the field.


Its only a slight nudge of the frequency not a change. Just enough so two of you can detect together.


There is no magic frequency setting regardles of what written on the Internet. The Internet broken :D
