Default First coin with Equinox is a wheat.

First trip out with the equinox and took it over to a private permission that I've detected at least 10 times with etrac. It is a site that I've considered "practically" hunted out and wanted to see if "Nox" could find anything I missed.

At this site I've found a seated half dime, 2 SLQs, barber dime, 1916s Merc, 2 v nickels, 5 buffalo nickels, a silver 5 peso coin, and at least a dozen wheats.

First two coins right off the bat were two wheats, where I've definitely been over with etrac a lot. Rough signals but nox gave enough indication of a coin that I dug them. Would etrac have missed them today if I got the coil over??? Impossible to say. The wheats got me excited though, hoping for missed silver... But alas, it did not work out that way. I'll try one more time after some rain to really determine if nox is better than etrac.

Congrats on the wheats and a successful maiden voyage with the Equinox. Most spots I hunted with an Etrac gave up additional coinage. Good luck, Mark

Thanks boys. Hurricane Nick missed us. We could have used the rain, but prayers for those with too much rain. Lord have mercy.

oh c'mon, you know that's not a test of the Nox vs other machines. You would have needed to do a flagged test, with two competent users. To tell their "calls". Ie.: Perhaps the other machine would have gotten it just fine !

Try recovery speed 5 then do it again at highest speed, I think it's 8.
