Hi iron bark

Tangled with a Telstra cable Wednesday and could not come within 5 metres either side.
Still operating in "1st gear" at the moment but on factory settings, the Z did not like it.

G'day John,

The young Bloke was working near some power line the other day and said he didn't have any problem with them, but I haven't tried it myself, but going on what I had heard they are much better than the GPXs as far as storms are concerned. So I would say they are less effected by EMI. Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Mike.

G'day John

This was a signal power line with no EMI effect at all, I tried it in all the different settings still no EMI from that line, not shure if the power was out to that line but will go back and try it again just to make shure. Haven't tried it near phone lines or pipe lines yet but will let you all know how it goes, not that we'd want to be digging in thous area's anyway.

Cheers Mick

John it's a strange beast with power supplies. I can turn mine on at home (in the house) with no effect on the detector, but in the Coiltek building, it was affected. I've noticed the same out in the field, some sources seem to affect and others not. It does seem generally less affected by EMI than the GPX's, but definitely not immune.

Just had another thought when out the other day, done an auto tune and noticed the UHF radio do a couple of hick ups, so maybe these machines operate under totally different frequencies, to the other machines. But I'm only guessing thou. V19
Or has it got a chip in the coil that takes away most EMI's V19
