A Letter from Richard Walburn

Rangertell, I am so excited with the Rodette that I am speechless! At this point I have turned all of my efforts on to the Rodette for in-close field use. On two sites last week I knew this Rodette was working. Call it gut feeling, because at this point I am handling the site logistics for two recoveries.

Onsite historically the cache is about 270 pounds, I waited for technology that one day would do the impossible task. Your Rodette works and I am so excited!

Well now I am proud to say that I can throw all of this smart NERS field charts stuff away in the trash. Because the Rodette IS NOT AFFECTED BY ALL OF THIS CACHE NERS FIELD PROJECTION STUFF!

I still can’t believe after all these years that I have been saying this. I have preached so much about it naturally, because I use this energy as a tracking medium.

Over the years I had used a range of popular “E scopes”, “A rods”, MDFs even gutted the E scopes hooked up to an MFD the way Mr. M does. All responded the same for me in this rejection noble metal pollution environment with expert efficiency on the rejection energy only. You could choose “A to Z” for the same data which was a guaranteed falsely dug hole every time and every visit!

So naturally for a guy like me that has spent 25years at this, I was impressed to see that the Rodette was very different than the rest of the stuff on the Treasure Hunting Market that I was personally familiar with. I have tried just about everything out there except the units costing thousands and thousands of dollars that I just could not afford to test and trash when they didn’t work for me, as I had done over the years with other equipment.

These are massive caches! Not lost pocket change and rings on the beach. I am totally in disbelief of what this Rodette seems to be doing in the filed on REAL Treasure Cache Tests. I am pleasant slave to the Rodette now until I learn absolutely everything I can possibly learn about this unit’s performance on many test sites as well.

Rangertell, I thank you for what you have contributed to the Treasure Hunting Equipment. I have never said this before to any manufacturer of equipment.

I have been a diehard Treasure Hunter for 25 years. I made numerous discoveries. I put about $500,000 into the development of NERS and I couldn’t find the loot on the site except by encrypted coded waybills with a green suit at the end of the search.

Now I can find the exact point and I am so happy about that. The Rodette probe will end the search from the beginning to the end of the NERS study.

A long awaited experience.

I went back to Japan and I’ve done all my research in Philippines on my 8 day vacation. I checked and located all the prospect treasure sites that are on the maps and the Examiner T-G located and pinpointed them with 100 % accuracy. I worked with samples every site and know the Examiner works in Philippines geological conditions. I always used MFD mode to identify the directions of the targets in all sites that I researched and the depth and shape worked successfully. All the sites that I located are in flat area only. One site is in the hill where the target is buried in bedrock.

The first thing I did was go to the sites that were detected 2-3 years ago with my German partner using his two new LRLs. I set the MFD mode each time but those sites that are in the maps that my German partner detected missed the true target. I think those LRLs only pinpoint the target reflection because the Examiner TG pinpointed at more or less 30 meter from the more expensive LRLs located spot. As we checked the maps we realized the Examiner had pinpointed them accurately with no mistake.

I located 10 spots of treasure target using my Examiner and it gave me successful and excellent results re the targets. The Examiner pointed directly to the true target. I didn’t encounter any target ring (which causes inaccuracy) and I always eliminated micro gold by pressing the xxxxx key.

Comparing it to the two LRLs used before in those sites, they always got lock on the target reflection and depth ring of target that only mimic the true target. The Examiner got lock only when I passed the target, and when I walked passed the NS-EW line. It only locked on 90 degrees and I always got the best and sharpest lock. Climatic conditions during my research were wet and rainy with no sunshine at all.
I checked all other sites that we detected before i.e. less than ten spots using the LRLs and the Examiner TG gave no response lock on any of these sites, I used all gold frequencies on those sites and found there was nothing there. The signals were only false that those LRLs located. We spent a lot of money drilling those sites only to find there was nothing.

Another site I located is in the flat area. Soil condition is sandy loam. This site is not in our map. My friend’s niece, husband and father dug a trash hole 5ft. deep and found 1 treasure chest box/rectangular shape small and tied up with chain and padlock. He didn’t open that box but buried it again in the same hole. After 30 or more years we searched for that box using the two LRLs again.

They located the depth ring and target reflections with 2-3 meters away from where the Examiner pointed. The Examiner locator gave the exact 5 feet depth measurement with a sharp lock. When I entered 6 and 7 feet it gave me no lock, So Examiner is so accurate I prepared an excavation contract and will be bound for retrieval on October this year. I will give you all recovery result when that time comes. I ran out of time when I checked that site as the next day was my departure day. I wasn’t able to operate this time.

We eventually heard back from the treasurehunter. He found a box in exactly the spot detected by the Examiner and at last report was still working on the contents. Rangertell

Dear Sir,

I have the examiner since last year and I have spent hundreds of hours practicing in the field. I have asked friends to bury different objects made of gold and I always find the exact spot, depth and weight (down to 1 or 2 grams).

I’m amazed at how accurate the distance, depth and weight functions are: If you go 2-3 grams over the weight of the target you lose response completely. Experimenting with the depth parameters I found out that even using xxx1.2or xxx1.3 etc. it works fine, so when you are digging you know you are on the right spot.

I have tracked down and dug up many targets in depths 1to 2feet that were giving weights from 100grams to 6000grams (always using xxx over the target) at the gold frequency xxxxx. Holding a piece of gold in the same hand with the examiner eliminates some of the small unwanted targets.

One more thing; Two months ago I picked up a very strong signal 30kilometers away, using my GPS and the Examiner I went to the approximate area and picket up several targets. Each one of these targets was strong at one moment then losing gradually strength disappearing and then gaining strength again and so on. The whole circle lasting approximately three minutes. Would that be due to the area or due to the nature of the targets?

I still think it’s the best long range metal detector: I don’t have to dig for lead, steel and other junk; also with the depth function I know exactly the depth of the target even if that is mineral and unfortunately there are too many of these targets here in Europe!
I’m looking forward in hearing from you.

Thank you. 


I am writing this letter in relation to the Examiner w/ Signal Generator which I
recently bought from your esteemed organization for the purpose of tracking and locating numerous minor and major Japanese treasures burial sites in the Philippines and particularly here in the island of Borneo.  

Those war booties were looted from 12 countries during World War 11 in the Pacific and were secretly buried in deep pits, caves and tunnels towards the end of the war in 1943 – 45 with the intention of retrieving them back quietly at a
later stage.

I am happy to inform that in every area where markers indicate, I am able to locate with confidence the target positions using my Examiner. It is very easy to use and a versatile tool which makes reconnaissance and locating faster especially in difficult environment conditions. By far, it is also a discreet tool in some areas to avoid suspicion while at work.

I think many decades ago having this kind of equipment was next to impossible. Thank you very much indeed for your innovation of such valuable tool available for my use.

Cheers —   Treasurehunter


I have received permission from a land owner to set up a base camp and look for a treasure that I have researched for a few years. Art Flowers

A few weeks later it appeared to have worked.


Found my first lost treasure. I had set up a base camp and was committed to using the whole winter looking for this treasure. The story was that a family had taken sick on their way to Sacramento in 1865. They had buried their life savings along the trail. It was recovered yesterday by the relatives. No, we are not rich for their life savings was only $75……….Art Flowers

Art finds the signal booster a must. Here is how he found the treasure.

Since receiving the Rangertell Body Booster I will not use my rods without it in my pocket. I find that using it when Dowsing, with my LRL or my MFD I get a better lock when I come to the signal line. When tracing the signal line I no longer have to walk a “S” pattern.
I can follow the signal line with the rods in an inverted V with little or no rod drift. When I get to the target my lock ups are stronger than they ever were. This is a great tool that everyone who uses rods should have.
As for the treasure find. I feel great about helping a family clear up a 135 year old mystery. I think when they check what the gold and silver is worth it will be a lot more than $75. I had three signal lines at this spot. I always put the booster in my pocket with the front of the unit facing out. I turn the dial all the way to the right.

I went to the first signal and using one rod and turned the dial left until the rod opened to 45 degrees. I knew I had a lot of gold by how far I turned the dial down. I checked the other two signals but they both disappeared with little movement of the dial. Thanks for this tool because it is a great help to me. Arthur

First time out with the Examiner

Equipment used and Equipment Set-up: 
Sample of 3 gold coins (approximate weight 3 ounces).

1. Cleared the calculator, then set the Examiner’s Calculator to xxxxx (xxx) 

2. Set the front Sensitivity/Gain Potentiometer to maximum. 

3. Extended out the antenna to just about maximum length (90 to 95% extended).

Test Set-Up: Had my son hide the gold somewhere on the ground on a 25 foot radius 36
