ANSWER: You can either have Ratchet Pin-point On or Off, in all your Programs. According to your own personal Pin-pointing preferences. When On, to Pin-point just pull the trigger and hold it down whilst passing the loop from side to side over the target. Do not move the loop far from the target or you will loose the target and have to start again. For Manual Ratchet Pin-pointing, pull the trigger several times while passing the loop from side to side over the target. If you do this too many times, your target will disappear and you will have to start again. If using On, I recommend the pulling and holding trigger method. This facility works the same in the Eagle Spectrum, XLT, and DFX Detectors.
QUESTION: When do I adjust Sat Speed?
ANSWER: You set Sat Speed when designing or installing a program, or when switching from Discrim Modes to All Metal Modes on site, when you may need to increase
Sat Speed to Stabilise Threshold Tone, when moving from low ground mineral areas to high ground mineral areas.
Lower Sat Speed numbers work best on low mineral ground, while the higher Sat Speed numbers work best on high mineral ground. Sat Speed Main Function is to Stabilise Threshold Tone when detecting in All Metal Mode, or Mixed Mode Audio. The Sat Speed setting is not as important when searching in the Discrim Modes. But it does have a slight Stabilising Affect on Threshold Tone. Recommend use settings from 5 to 9. "5 for good ground and general Detecting; "6 to 7 for more mineralised ground, 8 or 9 for beach Detecting; when carrying out Manual Ground Balance drop down to 0 or S.A.T. will be working against you, trying to reset Threshold Tone when the loop is being raised or lowered. Do not forget to return S.A.T. to its original setting after manual ground balancing. This facility works the same in the Eagle Spectrum, XLT, and DFX Detectors.
