It is fun and enjoyable exploring outdoors and hunting for valuable treasures. With over 3,000 metal detectors to choose from, Kellyco has the largest selection of metal detectors in the nation. While scanning the ground this LED sphere emits colored light to visualize detected metals and cavities. The detector is also equipped with an innovative LED orbit, that indicates underground targets visually.
Then, on top of multi-frequency, you get three single frequencies on 5,19 and 15kHz. Minelab produces excellent top-of-the-range machines and their Equinox 600 is known as the younger brother of the series.
In 1874 Gustav Pierre Trouve built the first metal detector that was huge and not particularly successful. As with all hobbies, it takes a while to get hooked, but metal detecting is one of those that can give you a bug fast.

to use a detection device for the purpose of searching for archaeological objects anywhere within the State or its territorial seas. To prevent damage to our archaeological heritage by the unauthorised use of metal detectors, the National Monuments Acts 1930 to 2004 regulate the use of metal detectors for archaeological purposes throughout the State of Ireland and its territorial seas. Random searches with metal detectors cannot determine whether a find is of archaeological importance, or if it is a recent discard. Unsupervised recovery of archaeological objects by untrained and unlicensed users of metal detectors can greatly diminish, or can entirely eliminate any knowledge or research value that might be gained from a particular discovery. Unregulated and inappropriate use of metal detectors causes serious damage to Ireland’s archaeological heritage.
It needs to be sufficiently close to the soil or sand so the magnetic field can penetrate, but not so low that you bash the sensitive coil on stones and clods of earth. Sweep the machine side to side in front of your feet. Antenna – located at the base, it’s also known as the coil.

Alternatively, if you’re looking to cover large, open areas like beaches and farm fields, a larger coil might be a better option. The only real advantage it has over the DD (in my opinion) is that it can be easier to pinpoint your target.
Larger portable metal detectors are used by archaeologists and treasure hunters to locate metallic items, such as jewelry, coins, bullets, and other various artifacts buried beneath the surface. Modern top models are fully computerized, using integrated circuit technology to allow the user to set sensitivity, discrimination, track speed, threshold volume, notch filters, etc., and hold these parameters in memory for future use.
