What An Afternoon
I had some time to pass this afternoon and since I have had my CTX 3030 I have not made the time to hit the sov patch. I called up Ed and asked if he would like me to give him a run down on his new CTX 3030 as he is heading away soon, and would be taking it with him but still not having a understanding of all the setting.

Dug out the plug and there before my eyes there it was after all these years. ...

Winner So Far!
Yesterday I got a call from a lady that lost her engagement ring in a communal garden a week ago. In the meantime we have experienced torrential downpours on almost a daily basis. She told me that she has had 4 different friends who own metal detectors come out to try and locate the ring with no success and so naturally I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to test the CTX 3030....
