This diagram shows the sweeping motion and illustrates how the ground area is covered.
When sweeping, you should:
1. Slightly overlap each sweep so as not to miss any targets.
2. Keep the search coil parallel to the ground at all times to prevent the loss of detection of deep targets.
Operators sometimes have a tendency to lift the coil at the end of each sweep. Where possible this should be avoided because
it will cause a loss of detection depth.
Whilst sweeping, do not forget to listen for signals, especially faint ones. Beginners often dig only the very loud target signals
when in fact the faint signals may be a deep or small target.
