    Hey,why don’t you check the hole again once you find the target,there could be annother target there.
    That’s something I always do,because there’s been a lot of times that I thought i found everything,but i scaned the hole again and there was something else there.


  3. Wavatar ResearchandRecovery Says:

    That’s a very good tip for everyone. When I film footage for the show, I check the hole after I have filled it in when the camera is off to be sure.

    I may think about adding this portion into my technique of detecting and filming.

    Hi! What setting were you using on your XLT? Mine dosen’t make that noise.


  11. Wavatar ResearchandRecovery Says:

    By noise, what exactly are you talking about? There is the multi tones when in search mode and then the pinpointing mode.

    In your settings, “TONE ID” will give you lower sounds for iron and higher sounds for anything on the + side of the VDI.

    “VCO” will give you the pinpointing sound where it gets higher as you get closer to the target.

    Hope this helps!

  16. Wavatar UncleVinnys Says:

    Good show, but I would NEVER reach into a hole, even with gloves on your hands – - too many cuts and punctures!

    the librarian shouldn’t be giving you permission she doesn’t own that land.


  20. Wavatar ResearchandRecovery Says:

    She doesn’t? Her home is built on it. She has it fenced off as a ‘backyard’. The GIS Data shows it’s hers.

    Crap, I could have sworn she owned it. Damn.

    Seriously, before you post an ignorant comment, maybe you should think about what you’re posting.

    I think i saw the guy in this video on and interview about that huge treasure that odyssee found.

    How much do one of those things cost? The metal detecter things, lol.
