G'day Gents.

Even though I don't exactly like talking about it,now that Pete and Robert brought up the subject,10 years or so back swinging a 2200 about a 1klm away from the Tarnagulla cemetery, I managed to hit the jackpot.Not one token but 2. I got excited with the first mellow signal at about 8 inches down to find the words on an aluminum strip(about 2 inches long and 1 cm wide) "Sucker" and if that wasn't enough,30 meters further down another good mellow signal at about 10 inches deep with the word you guessed it "Di**head". That was enough prospecting for me for the rest of the arvo.Spent the rest of the afternoon sharpening my pick,thinking about the culprit who buried them there.

Cheers guys kon61.

I rememberdetecting with my Dad about 30-35 years ago.... It was exciting, every signal had to be gold, but sadly, none of it was.

I remember the detector had a metalic blue box, a red button on the handle & took 16 x AA batteries. Funny thing is I dont remember it being heavy.

Sounds like one of the earlier Whites VLF detectors.
