“If I hold the 50c on the coil face all noise stops and then if i rub coin on the coil i get a signal.”

That is correct. The target needs to be moving.

What detector do you have that continues to sound off when the target to coil distance remains constant?

In that post I was trying to make reference to my coil. 50c did not create a signal until it was rubbed on the coil face. Coil buggered sent it back.

I received my new QED ( Warranty Replacement) and Detech coil and went straight to Durikai for a swing.
Found
Buttons
Lead Shot
Boot tacks
Other Metal

Settings
MG 242
B 49
A 45-65
G 4-6
M 4

All finds where in the same area covered by previous QED where I found nothing

Hot rocks where a problem here. Target signal would be in a single spot, but when dug the signal spread across all dug dirt.
EMI I think was why I had to run mode 4. 3 was a bit noisy. 4 was Quiet. Deepest about 19cm that was for a little brass button.
5cent on air test was 19cm also
20cent is weird also least distance on air test. Must be made of different stuff
50cent 19.5cm

Started to rain while I was out. Straight away I wanted a waterproof cover. Definitely needs a dust cover

One point though I ran the sadie for a bit my MG was at 300 got away with 296 very hot area

Very Happy with detector

Again Great Service provided

I am off and running

G'Day All

Time for an update as to my adventures. Last month I traveled down Mexico way (Vic) for my nieces birthday. While there I took  the opportunity to have a swing around the GT. I met up with Goldman for mornings training which was extremely informative. My knowledge of the QED jumped dramatically with regards to target identification and manipulation of the settings. While with Goldman I found a Three pence the photo of which is on the QED Facebook site. I also had my son with me so Goldman kindly lent him his QED for a swing. We also visited Howard for the latest Firmware for my QED. ( Not what Goldman mentioned in his latest post). I am very thankful to Goldman and Howard for all their help, training and professional attitude.

I then had a look around Castlemaine, Maryborough ( Where I visited the Goldcentre and bought a Coiltek 14" Elite, I had to buy something excited) I didn't find any gold in these spots just heaps of junk.

I then met up with Jackpot for two days. We detected around WHROO where Jackpot found 4 small bits and I found one .4g piece. My one piece weighed more than Jackpots 4 bits.

I then headed home back to Brisbane. A truly enjoyable week

Great result.

For those who have been deceived by the marketing spin term "Gold detector" the following link will be of interest.

  

Click on the link and add the search term "gold detector".

Then try "metal detector".

One thing is for certain, if somebody had found a way to create a genuine "gold detector" they would certainly have patented it.

I'm pleased to hear you've sorted out your issues and now have an understanding of how to use the detector Dave, now that you've found your first nugget with it like that things will change dramatically, you'd be surprised what confidence in yourself and your detector can do to what you find. Good on you!

G'Day All

I would like to clear up a couple of things about my QED experience. As some people are  using this as an example as to not buy QED.

The QED was my first ever detector purchase, so my knowledge on the working of detectors was zero. True my experience didn't start to well as you have all read. My luck I got a bad coil and if I was an experience user I probably would have worked this out very early. Therefore most of my problems would not have even  happened. I did finally work this out with help from people help on forums (By the way this is why we post is it not, to help and be helped).

As the service provided by QED is  excellent, I got a fresh start with new coil and Detector (The fact I got a replacement Detector as well is a testament to QED exceptional  customer service. QED did not have to do this, but product pride is paramount for them, not just a pay check. I don't think any other brand would a have done this) I forgot all about my previous experiences and started again.

Anyone who uses this experience as an example of product quality is just grasping at straws. I know other brands have had their share of product malfunctions as well.

As you will read I have found gold with my QED and am extremely confident that I will find more. I am so confident that yesterday, when my wife said I could buy latest GPX version , I turned down the offer. If I could afford a GPZ AND I lived in an area where I could use it everyday, sure I would buy one, but this is not the case. I am confident that I have bought what suites my budget, detecting opportunities and is equal to the task.

Prior to COVID lock down Trip Update.

Last month I traveled down to Victoria for my nieces birthday. While there I took  the opportunity to have a swing around the GT. I met up with Goldman for a mornings training which was extremely informative. My knowledge of the QED jumped dramatically with regards to target identification and manipulation of the settings. While with Goldman I found a Three pence the photo of which is on the QED Facebook site. I also had my son with me so Goldman kindly lent him his QED for a swing.

I then met up with Jackpot for two days. We detected around WHROO where Jackpot found 4 small bits and I found one .4g piece.

I then headed home back to Brisbane. A truly enjoyable week. I put into practice what Goldman taught me and now I am extremely confident in my target ID and capabilities of this detector
