Metal detector terminology explained

I have always enjoyed learning new metal detectors and for the most part I’ve found it pretty easy. Over the years I’ve been surprised to learn many people have no desire to learn the settings. I’ve literally installed a few programs in people’s detectors for them and that’s all they ever use and they’re clueless on the settings or how their detector works.  The problem with this is you might run into certain ground conditions where it would be very beneficial to know your settings and how to change them for optimal performance. Recently, a good friend called me to…

If you listen to Josh Kimmels podcast, beyond sight and sound, you have probably caught one of the episodes I have done about field hunting. It’s something I have enjoyed doing for years and it is my favorite type of metal detecting to do. What is field hunting? Field hunting is finding old sites, long gone that are just farm fields now. I don’t just pick a field, get permission and go walk it hoping to find something. I overlay old maps, talk to farmers about…

In depth- How to overlay maps

This article is something I have wanted to do for a long time but wasn’t sure how to go about it. I knew it would be difficult and before even I started typing here I have about four hours in getting all the pictures together and figuring out exactly how I want to do it to make sure it’s easy to understand. I don’t know how well this will work but follow along and I think by the end you should have enough understanding to do it on your own. This is my method. There are other methods out there…
