Thanks for the add and a big hello, My partner and I have just purchased our first detector so all is new to us. We are from the Newport Gwent area, South Wales. Straight off the bat it all seems kind of daunting with all the rules, dos and donts, We have just sorted our insurance (NCMD) we also read the information on Crown Estate beaches and contacted our local council for any locations and info. We have been using Youtube for information regarding detecting, any other hints, tips information from anyone will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Lou & Lee

Hello Lou and Lee.
Its a wide subject area so my only tip at this stage would be to spend plenty of time browsing the site, particularly the FAQ's and any 'sticky topics' at the top of the various forums.....and check out any info on your particular brand and model of detector (you should find all the main credible marques of detector if you scroll down the sidebar
....if you can't find your brand listed then it probably means (undoubtedly means) you will need to buy something else.
Anyway, lots of info on detector settings, researching sites, getting permission, and on the kind of things you will (hopefully) find.

Hi and welcome. Wales? Nice part of the world and with great history as well
There’s a whole section of Tips in the left hand menu
. You might want to read the forum guide which is here
. It takes a little while but you’ll soon be clear on things, it’s mainly common sense

Hello nelsonn69 Here's wishing you well as you take up the reins to the hobby
The rules are not complex and are for the most part, common sense and will fall seamlessly into place.
Good Luck and enjoy your time with us here on the MDF
