Some software and hardware updates now available for the QED.More  QED firmware updates (inc Auto GB  option) just announced here. New  QED hardware updates/options and pictures will be posted  first here  as they become available.

Another satisfied QED user! QED user report for 9 days detecting! User loves it, found it easy to use,found gold with it and he prefers it to his 5000! Also a report on a QED used at the beach for coin shooting.QED users reporting in with their multi ounce gold finds with the QED!
From  another QED user today:"Been out and about today testing and comparing against other machines etc in ground that has been horrible in the past.Bround balancing Ive found very simple and easy.'m using the Nokia booster but need a little more sound/threshold.Otherwise no complaints from me, very impressed."
and :"My QED with the 8” commander on it, out performed my SDC Got bits that don't register on my scales SDC has since been sold"
"My QED is terrific. Lightweight, very sensitive and screams at me when it hits any target. The Detect shaft and the 11" ultra sensing coil is a top quality fitout. I attached an external speaker which added under 200gms of weight in total and still remains very well balanced so i never feel fatigued after many hours of swinging."

Stinky  Pete :http://www.detech-metaldetectorsaustralia.com.au/ is the  Australian distributor for the QED.
This is the only forum where you can talk directly with the designer/ manufacturer of the QED and  also some very experienced QED users.
Jrbeatty and Reg Wilson  and  Yellowfin  (or Doug here for that matter!)have NO vested  or pecuniary interests(or secret deals or cash for comment or any other undisclosed benefits )in the QED other than using it to find gold which it is doing very successfully! The ONLY people deriving  an income from the QED(other than finding good gold) are the approved retailer and Bugwhiskers! The ONLY investor in the QED is Bugwhiskers!
I have never met Jrbeatty or Reg Wilson at Howards house or ANY other location!

 The bias in the QED is now largely unaffected by any temperature change because the  cap that was causing this has been replaced with an ultra low temperature coefficient one.(30ppm/deg C)

Don't understand that, has to be a technical glitch since hardly anyone gets banned there - certainly not a decent bloke like you, Vas.

Here's the relevant post by Reg from the topic "que ee dee" on Finders:

JR Beatty and myself have been camping out on our prospecting area recently, and we have had some very cold nights.
 On starting up our QEDs we found them to be quite noisy with the threshold running high when beginning in the early morning.
 By dropping the bias as low as about thirty the threshold would drop to a usable level, but would have to be adjusted up gradually as the machine warmed up, until the bias got to the usual high forties or so. The option was to turn them on before we were ready to go, and have a coffee, giving them five to ten minutes to warm up, and then they would run at their normal smooth and stable operation.
 Unless your QED has been in a warm situation before start up you may find the same situation as we have, but don't panic, your detector will soon settle down and be as brilliant as usual.

I hear from a friend that the Victorian government is looking to increase national park areas substantially over the coming years and that a lot of those areas include goldfield regions, is this true?
How will it affect prospecting and tourism I wonder as quite a few townships rely on a reasonable portion of trade from both.

Hi 47 G:  Generally speaking, the smaller the coil the smaller the gold detected. If a 14" isn't picking anything up in your search area then try an 11".

Some say the bundle wound coils work better on the QED than the flat wound type, but my experience has neither confirmed nor disproved that claim. I have found tiny gold with the 11" Commander, but prefer the 14" flat wound "Elite"as my principal coil, principally because of wider coverage in open areas, at the expense of possibly missing deeper tiny pieces. 

Reg Wilson prefers using the 11" flat wound "Elite" and there is no doubt it is an extremely versatile coil, with extraordinary depth on larger targets as well as extreme sensitivity to tiny bits.
Thank you for your reply J R  I will try one of the coils you have mentioned and hope that I may just swing it over a nice piece soon.


jrbeatty I saw your recent post on another "forum". Honest,well put and from the heart! Whether it will  result in a truce there is another matter.

It makes a humming sound when I touch the metal part through the head phones
