First strike for 2017

Post  Axtyr on Wed Feb 01, 2017 10:47 am

G'day everyone.

Well it was a magnificent day yesterday morning. I headed to Talbot for my first detect for the year and happily came home with 9 pieces.

2 pieces were inside rock and took some force to get them out. I turned the sensitivity down from my ususal 20 to 15 and the signals were brilliant. Every signal yesterday was bright and crisp, probably just the factors of the day though. I was expecting it to be difficult to detect as for some reason my radio was getting a lot of interference around the Gordon area. I thought maybe my antenna had broken off but it is still there.

Anyway, the pieces weighed in at:

0.49 gram, 0.1 gram, 0.06 gram, 0.05 gram, 0.28 gram, 0.23 gram, 0.06 gram, 0.12 gram and 0.38 gram.


A nice tally of 1.76 gram for the day. Very happy with that. You wouldn’t want to be terrified of spiders at the moment because they are everywhere out there. First the mosquitoes, then the flies, now the spiders.

I will finally get to use my B&Z booster soon. It was supposed to be my Christmas present but instead I made it my birthday present.

Good luck out there everyone.

Regards Axtyr.

Good job Axtyr.
First outing yesterday for 2017 and came up with a single .7g piece.
Great day, but could've done without the spiders and webs!
Cheers, JLC

Top start to the year Axtyr.

Great little collection to kick the year off, that's for sure.

I always find the experience of walking into a web only to find the rotten thing staring at you very character building. I rather them than snakes though lol!
