Default Ground Balancing with AT Max

Is it normal for the AT Max to be chattery while ground balancing?

Generally, I need to keep my AT Max at around a 3-4 on the sensitivity to stop most of the chatter while detecting in my yard. Sometimes I can get to 5, but 3-4 is the norm.

When ground balancing, an otherwise quiet AT Max will start getting chatty and jittery. This occurs even if I have the sensitivity at a 1 while ground balancing.

Is it normal to have all that noise while I pump the coil up and down until the "back and forth" sound (that you typically hear when ground balancing, but dies down as you pump the coil) goes away?
