    15khz in dry saltwater beach sand

    Would this be a bad idea?

    No problems with that. If you want to play it safe, just put a small garbage bag over the box. That will keep any salt from entering. Happy hunting.

    With the DFX - Mox Nix. You're just selecting the AUDIO you hear - 3 or 15Khz. The DFX always transmits both frequencies. Your BETTER bet in a wet salt sand environment is BOTH or 3Khz. Lower freq is less affected by conductive wet salt sand. You'll get quieter ops. In high EMI, 15Khz is quieter.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Interesting. I didn't realize that it always transmitted in both. I was thinking that in the really dry sand 15Khz might be at an advantage for sniffing out gold targets

    Unless you're in a HIGH EMI area, dual freq is the best choice for DFX .... HIGH EMI = 15Khz ....
