Default New coil on the excal seems to work

I got out today with canadianguy for about three hours in the water. Tough digging with mud and shells, earned every darn one of those coins! Ring is 14k...
HH all!

Bklein, i had to swap my 10 inch original coil out for an 8 inch tornado coil. My old coil was just crazy, chattered when held still pointed at the sky.
OBN and Stavr helped me out with the info i needed to complete the process
https://metaldetectingforum.com/showthread.php?t=253738
Gold digger 2, i know right? I used to always hit three rings per hunt, but lately conditions are just terrible here, off to try again tomorrow!
Compass, it really was not that bad. Once you wrap your head around the fact you are REALLY going to do it and get the boards out of the pod it really went smoothly. OBN and Stavr were both a big help with providing info to me that gave me the confidence to jump in and go for it! Just need a somewhat steady hand and a basic small soldering iron...

Tim.......his problem was hes getting 2 1/2" less coverage....... thats where those other rings were.

I applaud you Z. You dont have as many detector stores as we do. I grew up on a farm ..... so if it dont work, YOU fixed it. Joe told me the machine will work..... just not right if you get those wires turned around. Id say you done good. Now..... back out there for those other 4 golds.
