Metal Detecting 101

The world of metal detecting is changing fast, long gone are the days of simple switch on and go machines, todays detector market offers a new breed of metal deteting products, smaller circuit boards, deeper ground penetration and computerised menu’s.
Metal detecting 101 is a web site designed to help people learn about new detector products and keep up to date with the very latest metal detecting media and events.
If you are looking for a deep metal detector there are certain things you need to take into consideration.
Detecting frequency and search coil size are very important.
We have a host of technical metal detecting videos over at the metal detecting skill school channel, here is just one example.
