    I did a few air tests with the Deus today that I would like to share. Hope it is useful to someone. All of the tests were done in the 12kHz band on surface targets.

    Target VDI reading

    14K mans band 68
    Walker half 95-96
    Indian head penny 76-79-82 (individual pennies rang up completely different from others)
    Silver dimes 88-89-90 (individual dimes rang up completely different from others)
    Silver quarter 94
    Wheaties 85-88
    1909 Wheatie 81 (if anyone has a 1909 I would love to know if there readings match this one)
    All nickles 54 (tested a buffalo, a 1962, and a 1993 - all tested the same)

    I have to get you the set up for constant VDI numbers regardless of what frequency you are hunting in.
    My numbers are affixed to what should be reported back in 18hz. I only have to remember one set of numbers, regardless of what frequency I'm hunting in.
    My nickels come in at 64. Although Gold can vary regardless of what frequency you're using, the last 14kt white gold man's ring came in at 64.
    My silver dimes will register at 95, silver quarters at 96 / 97, and any VDI that registers at 98 and is 8 inches deep, will be dug.

    I think I am going to join you in that setup Kevin. I think I remember reading about it in the book. I assume there are no other effects on depth or performance. If not I wonder why they didn't just set the machine up to run that way by default?

    Let's try this:
    Upper left button, Option, hit once
    Select Configuration
    Select Profile
    ID NORM - YES
    Now check the ID numbers on your card for 18hz. These are the only numbers you need to remember, regardless of which frequency you are hunting in.
    This setting has no effects on any other functions. Sensitivity, depth, discrimination, etc.,, are not altered by this setting.
    Good luck buddy
