FROM THE EDITOR:
HAPPY NEW YEAR !! Tara & I ( Floyd Mann )
wish you & your family a very NICE year in 2005 !! This is the 45th issue
of this newsletter ! We have bought our house here in Utah ( the same one
we have rented for a year )---so it would appear that we plan on "settling
down" for awhile. We will still be using our motorhome for our longer field
trips. I also decided to give my trusty Honda a break. For several years I
have used it like it was a packhorse AND a 4-wheel drive, all-terrain
vehicle. It has now been "retired" to be the street-worthy passenger
vehicle it was meant to be. Replacing it is an ACTUAL 4-wheel drive pickup
! NOW I can REALLY haul some heavy stuff ! AHHHHH---the "benefits" of
Since last May our TEAM KGC has been studying,
researching and doing "field trips" on the KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE. We
are in search of their smaller caches and larger depositories. Our TEAM
consists of members from New York to California---and MANY states in
between. Our "MISSION" is to dig up LOOT ! During this month of January I
am accepting applications for new members. If you would like to join a
dedicated TEAM of treasure hunters with an impressive list of sophisticated
electronic equipment, construction equipment, and vehicles---please email me
In your request to be considered as a TEAM KGC
team member. please tell me WHY you want to join and WHY you think you can
benefit the TEAM. What can you offer to help in our success ? In your

A CUTE STORY
Just a quick story about my grandmother. I was
living in Michigan, but came down to Kentucky to visit my grand-parents.
This was about 1979. I had always taken my trusty light green Compass
detector with me where-ever I went. One day I was looking around the front
yard of the house that they had lived in for over 60 years, and was coming
up with quite a few good finds, including a 1911 barber dime. When my
grandmother saw what I was doing, she asked me to drive out of town a little
ways to a spot that she said my have just what I'm looking for. I helped
her into my LTD and followed her directions out of town, then down a narrow
blacktop, then just a short way down a dirt road. She told me to stop, back
up a little bit, and then use my "contraption" right by the side of the road
where we had stopped. There was nothing there at all at the site to
indicate there was ever anything there except grass, dirt, and a lot of
weeds. Less than 2 minutes later I got a signal and pulled out a liberty
nickel. Then an Indian head penny. Later, another 2 pennies. The first
was an 1879, the next two were both 1892. All of these were found in an
area no more than 10 feet by 10 feet. I didn't find anything else. When I
asked her how she knew that there would be something there, she said that
when she was a little girl, she was born in 1892, there was a little church
there that she and her family went to. At that spot where I was searching,
there used to be a wooden platform with steps for unloading buggy's. Her
and the rest of the kids used to play on these steps and would sometimes, as
kids do, lose the penny or nickel that dad gave them to put in the
collection plate. She said the church burned down when she was about 10 or
11 years old, and was rebuilt closer to town. Only someone who had been
around at the turn of the century would have known about that site. NEVER
miss an opportunity to talk with someone who may have seen something a lot
of years ago. All of the research books in the world would not have told me
about that set of steps at a church that has been gone for more than a
hundred years. Just thought that your site readers may like that story.
Keep up the good work and the fine site. Don D.

NEW BOOK IS A "MUST" FOR DFX
STONY BROOK, NEW YORK, USA - A new book about White's Electronics' flagship DFX
metal detector is now available. "Digging Deeper with the DFX" takes a detailed
look at the DFX's operation and use.
The book is geared towards DFX "coin-shooters" that want to move from the
generic "turn on and go" factory programs to customized settings best suited to
their local requirements. In addition to a basic operation summary, the book
includes sections on setup menu operation, ground mineralization effects,
White's VDI target indication number system, operating frequencies, pros and
cons of multi-frequency operation, sample custom programs, how to create custom
programs, and a setting summary with guidelines for each adjustment.
Because of the DFX's product heritage, users of older White's Spectrum
detectors, like the XLT, should find much of "Digging Deeper with the DFX"
helpful as well.
"Digging Deeper with the DFX" by Jeff Foster (11" x 8½"; spiral bound; 119
pages; 50 figures; 16 tables) is priced at $27.50 USD + $4.50 USD International
Shipping and is available from the author. Shipping is available to countries
worldwide that are serviced by the U.S. Postal Service's Global Priority Mail
service (approximate 4 to 6 business day transit time service). This includes
Canada, Australia, the U.K. and most other E.U. countries. (Recipient is
responsible for any tax, duty, and customs clearing, the details of which will
vary by country.)
