Winter Metal Detecting
Winter is here and with it you can expect some rain or snow. You and your favorite metal detector are anxious for the snow and the ice to melt to give way to sunlight and extraordinary weather that's fit for your favorite pastime. But in most parts of the country there is still some time to wait.
As a result you can still go metal detecting in the showers. Here are some tips about how you can do exactly that, and be effective in the process.
When metal detecting in the rain your metal detector will need protection. You should also acquire a commercial meter rain-cover. This is to insure that your metal detector won't get drenched from the rain. Now and again, however, the problem with commercial rain-covers is that they tend to get damp from inside, so it is tough to comprehend the meter.
It is also an additional outlay, clearly. So if you do not desire to shell out money to obtain a commercial meter rain-cover you can opt to use traditional plastic grocery bags. It may not be as safe and will not allow the exact protection as a commercial rain-cover, but it's satisfactory enough to let you go on with your metal detecting even in the shower.
As greatly as you need protection from the rain for your metal detector, you also need protection from the cold wind and the rain showers yourself. Purchase a wetsuit which will keep you from getting drenched, helping you stay balmy and cozy. It is also standard to bring a raincoat other than your wetsuit, to maintain the nip from the cold from penetrating - especially when it is blustery.
With regard to metal detector headphones, waterproof headphones are superior, but standard headphones work as sufficiently.
The best thing about going on metal detecting trips in the rain is that ordinary metal detecting hot spots are by and large vacant during a rainstorm shower. You will have the entire space all to yourself, minus the curious tourists and other metal detecting enthusiasts. Also, because the earth is wet during the rain, the metal detector is capable to pick up on signals in deeper targets, permitting you to dig in deeper holes.
So don't let a little rain keep you from the chance to discover valuable finds with your metal detector, because metal detecting in the rain is totally possible, and can be really fun too!
