Wind and the GPX 5000

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone could shed some light for me on this subject? When I am out detecting in the middle of nowhere and it is calm, my 5000 runs very stable and quiet. However, if the wind starts blowing the machine gets very noisy. The only thing I could think of is that the wind is creating static electricity causing interference. But is static electricity the same as EMI?

Two different energy sources with the same result; Interference found with the coil. Just the same when your hitting the ground with your pick and the magnet moves; instant spike heard by the coil. Wind is just more persistent and annoying.
