|I posted the following a bit over a year ago and it led to a discussion which eventually dubbed this the Deep Seeking Missile program ("DSM").
Once you know what the machine is telling you with TONE ID ON, I recommend that you tweak the following controls (in this order!) one at a time:
(This is from the COIN program, but the concept will work for other programs)
PREAMP 4 (or as high as it will go and still run stable)
AC 85 ('''')
DC 40 ("") Keep in mind that this only affects results when pinpointing
BOTTLECAP REJECT 0 (unless you HATE digging deep iron)
HOT ROCK REJECT 0 (unless this is unstable - depends on your conditions)
SWEEP SPEED 1 (and SWEEP SLOWLY!)
RECOVERY SPEED 10 (these last two interact -- you must sweep slowly or this recovery time will cause you to miss deep targets.)
I run mine like this and it works great. I find things -- Indians and silver well past the 8" mark -- and thats all I can ask for here in MICH, where that IS the deep stuff. If you have comments on programming, post away!
