Spoke with Goldman.

Sending my Control Box and 11" Coil back for a Warranty replacement of both. Very Happy with QED service.

Im gonna try to get out and give the 11 inch detech a go for the first time next weekend. Going to wedderburn so will see how those settings compare. What was the deepest target you dug roughly? Did it run fairly quiet in mode 4 with the 11"?
Im hoping wedderburn will allow a go on the 20" nuggetfinder while im there too.

From all finds detected from the same area that you had covered with your previous QED then it must of been faulty, so did Howard mention what the problem was with the QED or Coil?

Hot rocks where a problem here. Target signal would be in a single spot, but when dug the signal spread across all dug dirt.
EMI I think was why I had to run mode 4. 3 was a bit noisy. 4 was Quiet. Deepest about 19cm that was for a little brass button.
5cent on air test was 19cm also
20cent is weird also least distance on air test. Must be made of different stuff
50cent 19.5cm

Started to rain while I was out. Straight away I wanted a waterproof cover. Definitely needs a dust cover

One point though I ran the sadie for a bit my MG was at 300 got away with 296 very hot area

Very Happy with detector perfect

Have a look at the canvas control box cover i made up. Its very cheap and easy to make. If you dont put the side pocket and shovel holders on it actually looks very clean (see first pic i posted keeping in mind closing the back up make it look much neater. Being canvas its definately rainproof. My fuse and audio socket is completely covered as i made a right angle lead

If your results were with the 11” Ultra coil than are well short of what Northeast got with the 11” ultra coil on his QED using factory default settings .

5 cents - 25cm.
20 cents - 19.5cm.
50 cents - 28 cm.

I think factory setting are mode 3. Which might allow for more depth than mode 4 setup, but be a bit noisy on the 11"?? I will test that tommorow before trying to set up in mode 4 anyway
