A couple days ago at the farm site, I ran my MXT full gain, zero discrimination, ran as smooth as polished glass. I ran the DFX equally hot and it was just as smooth, and they were hitting deep.
Today, in the same location, I had to turn the MXT way back on gain and first triangle on DISC, and it was still noisy. I tried the DFX, same story, noisy noisy noisy, I tried different coils also, same results. Both detectors were noisy every where I went today, despite throttling down the gain and raising the discrimination.
The DFX may have some tricks to remedy that, which I have yet to learn and remember, AC sensitivity perhaps? I thought maybe solar flares could be the culprit causing this today. I thought it was the wind turbine since it was running full bore today, but when it happened away from the turbine field, that got me thinking about flares.
