Finally got my first!

Post by pilbara junky on Sat 20 Jul 2013, 9:32 pm

I was pretty determined today to get my first nugget after 4 months owning the GPX5000. Learnt a lot last weekend on what I've been doing wrong setting the 5000 up. Did a bit of self training and get her humming today and put a full day in (Mostly driving around finding ground). Anyway happy that now I have some test specs to use for tuning. One at 0.30 gram and other at 0.25 gram. At least pays for the speaker I bought as the headphones were giving me the sh*ts.

Thanks all and yeah pretty stoked about it. Went out the next day but no luck. Got annoyed as after doing a few km I realised the switch ticked over to DD for some reason (Must of knocked it when setting it down to dig a target). And on one target I dug a foot down and ended up getting remains of a tin can. Was gutted as you could imagine.  Anyway 4 day weekend coming up so hopefully get a few more.
