White's Electronics,

I thought I would send some pictures of the many finds I've discovered with my White’s MXT. I live along Gen. Lee's retreat route during the final days the Civil War. The ground can vary from sandy with no mineralization to very trashy areas and some places with severe mineralization. I've been detecting about four years now and found that the MXT works well in all these conditions. But the severe mineralization can get aggravating with any VLF detector. I have been so pleased with the MXT that I now have 2 of them, in case I have trouble with one, I won't have to worry about using someone else's spare of a different brand.

I have had such success with the MXT that I went from a Civil War relic box, to a cabinet, to a relic room in four years. I just ordered a new White’s TDI for the real bad ground that is around here. If I have as much success with the TDI as I have with the MXT, in four more years I'll need to build a relic museum.

UPDATE: My new White’s TDI came yesterday. My friend and I took it to a place we knew had relics and very hot ground. Last night was my first time out with it and on my third (3rd!) swing I got a great signal and dug a Civil War bullet at 10 inches. Normally we can only detect about two to three inches in this ground, but with the TDI, I went on and dug another 6 bullets up to 12" deep before it got dark. My friend swung his detector over the ground I was getting a good response from and could get no response from his detector, but the TDI just ignored the ground and the bullets started coming out. Now I can't wait to get at all that (use to be) hot ground.

Thanks for a well made detector.

Chris- VA
