QUACKERY NOT!!! By A Happy User
As a member of a long-range locator/metal detector enthusiast group that has grown tired of the skeptical faux pas that seem to abound re these locators, I have decided to begin a site for those who espouse the cause FOR them.
Too often we find there are those that will denigrate that which they haven't even tried which is a pity really. I know that personally my locating has gone from strength to strength after I was introduced to the Ranger-Tell Examiner and I find idle talk of 'quackery down under' appalling and unsupported.
I say this because I have never seen anything like the Examiner ..anywhere on this Earth. At first I thought it was a rod and was somehow..I didn't know what to think. Then I read the skeptics taking down units that cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. That was all well and good but it soon became clear their facts weren't there in any form. They voiced often conceited opinions and could not prove anything they said. I would read these every now and then and decided to trial one of them for my own curiosity since I had an earthen bent and wanted to be near Nature whenever I could. As well I had developed a lethargy and indifference to travelling to the bushlands which I knew wasn't good.
Well, it so happened that the cheapest locator was a Ranger-Tell " Examiner." The first thing that hit me was that it was ultra-light. Great I thought...no more backache and sore ears from the Fisher. It wasn't dowsing since all functions work independently of the user. I took it to a stream near my estate and decided to sweep for gold, then copper, lead and gems like diamonds..Of course these were fanciful I thought but...
..lo and behold, and I still don't believe this (lol) I picked up a couple of gold locks ... some copper and lead and believe it or not a diamond trace. This turned out to be my wife's necklace that was in the car but I soon learned to tune this out. However I did find and dig some traces of gold by the stream and copper knick-knacks and foil plus a number of lead sinkers. All well and good. Imagine my surprise when I measured the distance back to where I had detected the metals in the first place....A full kilometre and a half.!!! The sinkers were the deepest (about a foot), the gold was actually in a stream (which I panned) and the copper about 4 inches down.
Anyway since then I have had no end of pleasure with my "Rangertell." I even use it for other things that I won't go into here. But the fact that the Examiner has taken my recreational life from an average of fishing and hunting and some detecting to a new height gives me inspiration to do this little favor for those of you that may not know yet.
When I get around to rescuing some shots of my exploits with the Examiner I will post them. Until then you will have to be content with this preamble. I would recommend this as the number one priority for those who are interested in a good time at the weekends.
The label of quackery that is spoken of by idle contributors to Randi sites and such is in fact unfortunate in that the skeptics even cite the motive mechanism and scoff... This is indeed poor discernment of the truth. You see there is no quackery involved when you see it with your own eyes and realise that somewhere, someone has found a great reef or a cache of gold and diamonds with these units. They are only quackery in the hands of those who will not allow their minds to grasp the simple notions of natural resonant frequency. Just because they have read something like it before doesn't mean it's quackery.
I cannot speak highly enough of this product because if you knew me you would realise that to cut a long story short... I am healed!!
The pic on Randi's site is not like the Examiner I have that can be seen at www.rangertell.com You'll find that is an early one that does nothing like what the one I have does. That one was one of the first I believe, nothing like the ones available today (See www.rangertell.com/indexcc.htm and tab through or www.rangertell.com tabs left of page.) The frequencies were good for those early models but needed updating, that was all. Now it has the ability to tell me exactly where, how far away, how big and what shape the target is..If that's not worth discussing I don't know what is.
