Hi Mister7, I have several questions for you:

You say it happens in trashy areas. What coil are you using?

Is most of the trash of a ferrous nature?

Was the machine on auto-track, or did you lock the ground balance after balancing on clean ground?

What was the sensitivity setting?

When you pin pointed the ghost target, how deep was it? How "tight/small" was the target as you swept it in pin point mode (while listening to the pin point VCO signal, did you get a short bleep, or was the VCO sound on the broadish side)?
