Minelab Explorer SE Professional Review

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 22:17:36 +0000

A career counselor would normally not suggest that a technical writer consider switching gears, so that he or she might become a screen writer. If, however, that counselor has read a Minelab Explorer SE professional metal detector review and if that counselor also watches programs that air on a Persian satellite TV, then that counselor might make such a suggestion. Does the logic in that statement escape you? If so, then you need to read the following article. Learn more about the alleged connection between the amazing Minelab metal detector and the writing of a suspenseful made for TV movie. An American in Los Angeles County believes that at least one Iranian TV writer has studied a Minelab Explorer SE Professional metal detector review. That does not mean that the person who writes material for the small silver screen is also a professional coin collector. An American has come to that conclusion after viewing a certain serial on one Persian satellite TV network. That serial could be used as an advertisement for a Minelab Explorer SE. During the course of that serial story, the main character sets out on a treasure hunt. He obtains a detector from a contact. He organizes a team of “diggers.” After that team has spent many hours digging at the spot indicated by the detector, the main character confronts his contact. The main character questions the information provided to him prior to the delivery of the detector. The contact does not point to the detector as a possible source of error. The main character appears to have used a Minelab Explorer SE metal detector. The technology on that detector allows only buried objects that should be “good targets” to produce a clear and unmistakable signal. Suppose that the contact had provided the main character with a poor quality detector. In that case, any buried nail might have obscured the more desirable buried treasure. The Minelab Explorer, however, can distinguish between ferrous, unwanted items, such as iron nails, and nonferrous desirables, such as gold artifacts. The Full Band Spectrum (FBS) circuit on the Minelab Explorer produces multiple frequencies in a simultaneous manner. Because the FBS circuit puts out multiple frequencies, the signals received by the detector coil can be analyzed for evidence of a wide range of responses. Thus, the Explorer can do a much better job of identifying the target of any particular search. In the TV serial that has aired in Los Angeles County, the main character does not encounter bad weather while conducting his treasure hunt. If he had had to operate the contact’s detector in a rainstorm, he would have found it difficult to attribute any problems to the poor weather. At least, that is what one would have to conclude, if one assumed that the main character had been loaned a Minelab Explorer SE Professional detector. The Minelab Explorer has advanced digital filtering. That technology allows the detector to work well under all sorts of field conditions. That technology does not, however, help to hide the operator of a detector from the prying eyes of nosy neighbors. The absence of that feature was responsible for some of the most amusing scenes in the recently aired Persian TV series. So, if you plan to use a Minelab Explorer, be ready for an experience that promises to be a combination of comedy and drama.

Garrett GTAx 550 Review

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 06:02:31 +0000

Choosing the right metal detector for your particular needs is vital. Any detector is going to cost you a few bucks and you want a machine that offers the features you need and depend on. Let’s take a close look at the Garrett GTAx 550 metal detector. We will look at specifications, user friendliness, the features and how well they work and put this device to the test to see if it lives up to how it is marketed. Whether you are a veteran or a beginner, take a closer look at the GTAx 550 metal detector to see if this is the one for you. The Garrett GTAx 550 metal detector is quickly becoming known as a true metal detection workhorse, which is marketed as a high performance, strong discrimination, versatile machine. Let’s begin by looking at the specification on this device and then we will discuss how well this detector operates out in the real world. Some features are completely expected, obvious and needed and other are a nice, extra touch. The Garrett GTAx 550 metal detector has an adjustable audio threshold, a GTA Accept/Reject for discrimination, a graphic target analyzer, a headphone jack (can you imagine a detector without one), a hip mount battery pack (this is a good feature as some models have absurd designs regarding batteries), last mode switching (does not save you a ton of time but a sweet feature to have nevertheless), the LCD shows target ID and settings, it is microprocessor controlled, gives you coin depth measurement for pinpointing, depth sensitivity adjustment, a speaker (again, an obvious one to even list), the expected surface mounted PC board technology and touchpad controls with one touch operation (this is a certain plus). Now, regarding search modes, you’ve got two with the Garrett GTAx 550 metal detector: Motion A zero discrimination and Motion B coin discrimination with visual target ID. The settings are either depth sensitivity adjustment or full range. For the newbie, you do have a fairly good instructional video to watch and for those who have been frustrated before with 9 volt battery machines, the Garrett GTAx 550 metal detector review fortunately runs on two AA’s. This machine is pretty rugged, but you are backed up by a two year limited warranty for parts and labor on any needed work repair. Now for how this baby works in the real world. Overall, this is a very good machine for the money and quite a few happy owners have found treasure that they are happy with. The GTAx 550 metal detector was able to find a rare coin in an area that was previously searched for over ten years. This is quite impressive. However, overall, this is a solid middle-of-the-line machine. It will give you good results; however you may have a few missteps. Some improvements that Garrett may want to think about in the future is to keep the target ID from being so jumpy although once you have used this device for a while you learn to interpret the readings that you see, an adjustment on its discrimination mode as once in a while it may signal you to an object that you’ve set it to reject (that is supposed to be the purpose, right? So why not have it fully and completely operate as it should in discrimination mode?) And better performance in a beach environment would be of help, as some find the sensitivity to be reduced a bit on the sand.

Buying Second Hand Metal Detectors

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:32:06 +0000

Just like anything else you buy used, getting a second hand metal detector is going to cost less than getting a brand new one. However, if you do not know much about metal detectors, then it can be hard to figure out which ones are worth getting. Metal detectors can cost a lot, and if you have never used one before, you may not even like them. This is why a lot of people make their first metal detectors a used one. This allows you to get a great deal on a metal detector and find out if this is the right hobby for you, before you go out and get your own. When buying a used metal detector, there are a few things that you should look for to make sure you do not get ripped off. First of all, you should find out if the metal detector is still under warranty. A lot of people go out and get a metal detector, only to find out that this is not the hobby for them. Then they go out and re-sell the metal detector at a discounted price. If it still has the warranty, if something goes wrong, then you can just have it fixed. Also, it is good to ask questions about the metal detector. Find out a little bit about the person that owned it before you. By doing a little research you may be able to find out how often the metal detector was used and what it was used for. Just like a lot of other used things it is usually better to see what you are buying first. I know that most people buy their stuff online nowadays, but the truth be told, you should really get an up close look at what you are buying first. This is why it’s always good to shop around locally first to see if you can find a used metal detector. If you can not, then you need to turn to the internet. From there you need to look for used metal detectors that have pictures of it. If there is no picture of the metal detector, that is a pretty good sign that you should not buy that one. What someone may called “sightly used” could mean “beaten up” to you. The rule of thumb when buying any second hand thing is being able to see if first. Do not fall for the trap of buying something before you see it. Many people do that online, and they lose a lot of money. Buying a used metal detector is not something that you should not do, because it is a good way to save money on something that can cost a lot. Just be sure that you see what it is first before you go out and buy it. There is no point in wasting money on something if you are not getting what you think you are getting. Also, if you are buying on ebay, you should be sure and read the fine print. Be sure that someone has not worded something funny. Just make sure you are buying a metal detector, and not just the box of a metal detector. There have been a lot of cases of that happening online, and you do not want to be one of those people.

Metal Detecting Clubs Are Full Of Helpful People

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 22:20:09 +0000

It use to be that whenever you wanted to get into metal detecting, you kind of had to go into it by yourself. Sure you had a manual on how to run the machine, but besides that you were on your own. However, now that more and more people are starting to use the internet, we are starting to see different types of clubs popping up everywhere, and this includes metal detecting clubs. These are clubs that you can find online (and some locally) that have a whole bunch of members that are into metal detecting. This is a good place for first time people that have never used a metal detector before.

All You Need To Know Regarding Metal Detectors

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 02:59:41 +0000

Since the ways of hiding a bomb, weapon or some sort of dangerous metal has enhanced the need of smart and quick metal detectors was felt. Before these metal detectors were used to find ancient coins or treasure by treasure hunters but presently they are a major factor of identifying terrorists on airports or big events like sports or a concert for the safety of people. We have not stopped yet and still trying to modify the simple machine for more advance uses. The main objective of a company making metal detectors is the feedback of the customers. As they are the one using it in different situations they can tell you accurately what is brilliant or missing in the machine. There are testers from the company to make sure it is working fine and perfect before being available to the customers. A basic metal detector does not consist of complicated machinery as it just has four basic parts. The light weight metal detectors consist of a stabilizer which is optional that keeps the units steady while it is swept over things. The second most important part is a control box that contains all the controls, microprocessor, batteries and speakers to make identification of a metal easier for the consumer. There is a long shaft just of a size to conveniently be used to sweep over the land or grass without bending down. It also has the stabilizer and control box attached in a way to be visibly accessible. In the end of the metal detector is a search coil that is the main device that helps detect a metal. A coil and sensors at the end of the metal detector is also called the antenna, search head or a loop. Just like the structure of a metal detector is simple the same way its working is uncomplicated. A common principle a metal detector follow is that a power source gives out an electric current to the coil called the “transmit coil” installed in the search head of a metal detector which stimulates a magnetic field. When this magnetic field increases it causes a current to flow in the metal near by this is known as “Eddy Currents” which causes to create a magnetic field in the metal itself which is detectable by the device. The same procedure is used in every metal detector with few details changed according to the company it is made by. There are three main types of technologies used by the metal detectors made yet including very low frequency (VLF), Pulse Induction (PI) and Beat-Frequency Oscillation (BFO). The metal detector machine is a brilliant device that is being commonly used everywhere. The device looks simple and uncomplicated from the outside as well as works the same from the inside. Now many metal detectors come with a screen distinguishing each metal separately which makes your search unproblematic.

Metal Detectors in Archaeology – Of Highest Significance

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 22:35:08 +0000

The uses and also the importance of the metal detectors in the field of Archaeology, with the passage of years, are increasing by leaps and bounds. In this regard there is hardly any doubt that the metal detectors are and are also becoming fascinating pieces of technology. What has been found, is that there is the presence of a variety uses and have become even more versatile throughout the years. Ever since the first metal detectors came out in the 19th century, scientists and engineers have never stopped working on better and more efficient designs. In this day and age, there is the great presence of metal detectors that can identify metals in the best accurate manner for which they have become indispensable tools in fields like Archaeology. It is the deign of Gerhard Fischer regarding the use of resonating coils for the proper identification of the presence of metal under the ground that became a major success. These metal detectors proved to be an asset during World War II. Metal detectors were used during the war to find land mines scattered across the paths of troops. They saved a number of soldiers back then. However, these metal detectors could have been more useful if they were not that heavy. But to be very precise in these days, the metal detectors have number of applications. If you take in concern the field of Archaeology, there the metal detectors are indeed of good help. Though, it has been found, that in some countries especially France and Sweden law makes metal detectors against the law, but with special permission it can be used. In the face of all these restrictions the contribution of metal detectors in this area cannot be denied. A good example is the utilization of these detectors to inspect wide areas like sites of battlefields, where the only remains could be the surface, scattered with metal objects. What has been learnt is that the metal detectors are used by the archeologists, to find out there remnants of the metals of the ancient periods. On the other hand, at several times, some people do utilize consumer metal detectors for the sake of finding coins on the beach as heir hobby. But most often they are used by the archeologists for the sake of coin Shooting, searching for coins, mainly old coins. Other than this they are also used for the sake of prospecting, searching for precious metals like gold or silver; relic hunting, searching for any thing that has any historical significance, like weapons and also for the hunting of treasures and also several other types of hidden items. But at the same time, one should be aware of the correct procedure of using a metal detector. In this regard the very first need is to take a great care of tuning. This invariably means the detector must be adjusted so that it can be able to be on familiar terms with the ground as a channel for the targets to be inside. From time to time, nevertheless the devise posses a self-tuning trait installed. It is only after this one gets ready to go for the search of the targets, coins, treasure or anything. Remember the placement of the loop is also very important. To get the best functioning it should be held at arms length along with the loop and it should be barely above the ground and the loop must always be in motion for best result. While searching with the detector one should move at a slow pace. To conclude, apart from the presence of convenient metal detectors that we have grown accustomed to and use in hobbies and games like treasure hunting, there is also the presence of several bigger models that are used for the most part in security and related fields.

Metal Detection As A Hobby

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 10:33:26 +0000

The first metal detectors appeared at the end of the 19th century, owing to the scientific research of Alexander Graham Bell. In the 1930s, the invention of modern metal detectors started as Gerhard Fisher became the pioneer researcher in devising radio systems for accurate navigation. Since then, much development has been achieved in the filed of metal detection and today we know metal detection as a hobby that is getting more popular each passing day. Metal detection enthusiasts use various kinds of metal detectors to find lost or buried metal objects like coins, artifacts, economically important metallic mineral deposits, and even ancient treasures. Detecting metals as a hobby is rapidly becoming a craze for a large number of people, especially those living in the developed urban societies. Metal detection as a hobby owes its zooming popularity to at least two good reasons. First, it has a good prospect of rewards in the form of discovering precious metals (valuable coins, lost jewelry etc.), akin to finding lost treasures. Secondly, metal detection as a hobby is seen as something hip and sophisticated, thus catching the attention of people of various age-categories. And surely, there is all the adventure and thrill of being out on a hunt. In a practical sense, metal detection is the hobby of the 21st century. A number of metal detectors are available in the market for those who are passionate about using them for detection fun. Broadly they can be divided into three main types: Very Low Frequency (VLF) detectors, Beat Frequency Oscilators (BFOs), and Pulse Induction (PI) detectors. The most popular of these three types are the VLF detectors on account of their many different features including some computer visualization features. PI detectors are especially good for metal detection in salt water beach detecting and in mineralized zones (like gold fields). BFOs are the oldest type of metal detectors that are simple to operate but have a limited capacity of detecting subsurface metals. Metal detection as a hobby requires that the user of a detector possesses basic knowledge of the way metal detection works. First, the user should know about the kinds of metal detection activities. The most popular of these is coin shooting i.e. searching coins (particularly old coins) that are of good market value. Coin shooting is mostly done in historical sites where there is some possibility of getting antique coins. The coin hunter should have a basic knowledge of the history of the place and some idea of the best target sites for searching out with a metal detector. Many history buffs love to use metal detection for relic hunting i.e. finding various kinds of historical artifacts made of metals (coins included) like buttons, balls, parts of weapons, and buckles etc. Prospecting is another popular activity involving metal detection. Its aim is tracking precious metals like gold and silver but also economically significant metals like iron, copper, and aluminum. Then there is treasure hunting in which buried treasures are discovered using metal detection. This can be a hobby as well as a carefully planned project among metal detection hobbyists. Finding lost metal items (jewelry or coins etc.) on beaches is a well-known hobby now, popularly called beach combing. Beach combers should familiarize themselves with tides and other beach-related phenomena for better use of their metal detectors on beaches. There are a number of online and print magazines about metal detection a hobby and they provide good guidance on how to enjoy the exciting activity of metal detection.
