I'm with Blip, the bickering is only doing harm and most certainly putting people off considering a QED.  I find it better to prove how good something is with results, people can't argue with results.  If you really want to show someone how good a QED can be go out and film yourself finding some gold, put up the videos somewhere.    I was surprised how good the QED is with EMI over my GPX, so the first thing I did is take a video showing how good it is with EMI, put the video up, not one person can argue with a video.  

I showed my settings, I showed the power lines, I showed it detecting a tiny nugget in those settings under those power lines.... I was so close to the lines I felt uncomfortable that they would zap me, I was up high on a rock that went over half the height of the power line and really close to the wires and the QED ran unbelievably well.

  

Your new ground balance method seems very interesting Howard, thank you for the endless hours of effort you're putting into the QED to make it an even better machine.  

as for the users of the QED rise above the people who dislike the QED, you're not going to change their mind by arguing with them, they obviously have their reasons, valid or not.  The best solution to the problem is prove them wrong with results.  

I'm a new QED user, on my first day using it I found a nugget that weighed 0.131 of a gram at about 5cm deep in ground my GPX has been over along with my Equinox and also a friends been over it with his GPZ, we both missed it on those occasions, who knows why but I ended up getting it with the QED.   I'm satisfied it can do the job, and do the job quite well.

The arguing and fighting just reflects badly on the QED.  Now go find some nuggets and silence the critics that way.

Well done Phrunt,
Keep producing trip reports with your experiences/settings as they help others with their own settings and motivation.

Yes the QED is very good under powerlines as was detecting smoothly a few weeks ago directly under powerlines just outside Ballarat.

So good luck and hope you find many more pieces of yellow.

Cheers Goldman

Power lines are all in a day's work for the Kwed.

Reg and I used our early prototypes under 300KV steel towers near Muckleford with little noise, couldn't get within a bulls roar of those "daleks" with any other detector, even using cancel modes and coils. Things like that tend to impress a guy.   smile

I agree with Reg that increasing Mode to deal with difficult ground is the way to go. My testing has shown that you lose very little by increasing mode, even to 15 with small coils. After increasing mode, always review your Gain setting with the view to run with as much Gain as possible without being noisy.

Another option that can be used in combo with the above strategy or just by itself is to review your THS-B setting and if in difficult ground, adjust THS-B closer to NULL.

Cheers Goldman
mine has been run in null position since i  did some testing last year, never change it now and i still pick up the small lead shot and bits of rust and boot tacks, ground balances spot on as well, can run gain up to 6 before it starts with the noise. mode 4 to 8 seems to work the best over here. i never ever run my volume below 70 ish, plus i have 2 different amps i can run makes a big diff to the fainter signals, both amps have vol tone and gain , one of them. agb works spot on when running in null too. all in my opinion.  good luck

Gday mate,

AGB works best at THS-B NULL, and is (much) less effective above or below NULL.

hey gm, i have definately found that out, works spot on perfect gb 100 percent ,soon as off null my agb is about 80 percent correct, 2 seconds to adjust then spot on, too easy.
