    Really nice Space Rock

    I got a chance to hold this lovely iron meteorite yesterday that was found here in Arizona with a metal detector. This one was a real beauty and probably the nicest I’ve seen this year. For those here not familiar with meteorites there are different varieties, this one consists overwhelmingly of an iron-nickel alloy called meteoriciron. The ‘irons’ are also the easiest to identify in the field because they are heavy, strongly attracted to a magnet, and highly reactive to a metal detector. They can turn up just about anywhere, so before you toss out that next “hot rock” take a closer look – it might just be a meteorite! Have a great weekend everyone!

    I get asked this question so much, I thought it would be a great way to test out the polling feature on the forum. What do you all think?

    EQUINOX Software Upgrade!

    I took my Nox for a spin the other day after performing the update (super simple to do BTW). What I noticed, post update, is that the machine is more stable (less chatter) to EMI. VDI #s are more stable. The place I hunted is right across the street from a large cell tower. The first time Chris and I hunted there I had to turn the sensitivity down to 15 to keep the machine stable enough to hunt with. Interestingly, Chris' CTX was unaffected by the cell tower. Post update, I was able to hunt with the sensitivity at 19 and probably could have gone higher but I prefer a very stable machine. I got in to my first ever jewelry spill and a Wheatie/Indian Head pocket spill as well. I recovered three matching sets of ear rings, two singles, and a copper finger ring. The ear rings have the old screw clamp-on style backs. I'm sure the mates to the singles are there and I will have to go back and locate them. The IHP is a 1906 and two of the Wheaties are 1909-S. Unfortunately, neither of the early Wheaties is the desired "VDB" series. Nothing of real value but a good test of the Nox with the update. IMO, the update is for the better and, if one chooses, the machine can be restored back to it's original version. HH. Dean

    EQUINOX Software Upgrade!

    Very easy to download and put into the Equinox. Much better response on deeper targets, and the depth gauge actually works now!

    Way to go FRANK! I’m glad the machine and the coils are working well for you. I haven’t been out for about 3 months. Its just been too darn hot to be much fun. Come on cool weather.
