It may be a global economy, but America still makes the best electronics in the world. MODEL 301 DIGITAL – Long range locators are normally used alongside conventional metal detectors. The locators can quickly scan a wide area and determine if a concentration of gold or other valuables are within the reach area of the instrument. If no target is picked up, the operator can eliminate and just ignore the site, and move on to the next position to be scanned. If a target lock is achieved, then the conventional metal detector can be used to quickly search the designated spot in order to pinpoint and recover the target. A target lock is achieved when the 301, which is free floating on its handle, points to a particular area and resistance or a pull is felt when the operator tries to point away from it. Easiest way to mentally picture a target lock is this : if you hold a compass in your hand, the needle will point NORTH. If you change the position of the compass, regardless of how you rotate, the needle will resist the change, and still point to the original North position. The 301 reacts basically the same way. In order to minimize the target area, the operator can take several readings from various positions, taking note of where the visual lines from each position intersect. That will be the general area of target position. Now the operator needs to pinpoint the target center by searching a small area. The 301 is mostly designed to find somewhat large targets, but numerous EXPERIENCED operators are able to locate small targets as well. The 301 is not a conventional metal detector and does not work as one. If you never used long range equipment, you will need to spend some time learning what the instrument is trying to tell you before you become precise with it. If you are not the patient type willing to spend time in the field with it and expect this to be your personal “magic wand”, then this is not for you. Distance and depth of the instrument is largely dependent on size of targets and length of time in the ground. Freshly buried targets or “test targets” sitting above the ground will not generate strong pulls or target locks. Maximum depth on large targets can reach as deep as 20 feet -7 meters. Small targets from below surface to 3 to 6 feet plus – 2 meters deep or more. Please note: New test targets placed in front of the 301 for testing purposes may or may not cause a reaction. Long buried targets, 50 years or more, will cause a STRONG reaction. This is due to the chemical reaction that takes place between the target itself and the minerals in the ground which naturally occurs from years in the soil, amplifying the conductivity/signal response. The longer the target its buried the easier it can be located. The item “TESOROS DE ORO Y PLATA LONG RANGE LOCATOR METAL DETECTOR BROOKLYN NY DEALER” is in sale since Monday, March 25, 2019.
