The 800 has 2 reception modes and i use them both daily. Just today i lost null in heavy congestion, pressed peak and continued on.

Comparing peak and null helps to verify accuracy. You can read that in their manual. I KNOW ITS THERE!

Broadcast gets used a lot more than i thought it would. If you can place it on its hinge over the target it becomes somewhat directional. Lifting or removing the far end of the wire helps as does tracing single wire paths.

I used the 800 maybe 30-50 times today. I most times turn it on for just a minute or 2 and then turn it off.

Today i found either 10 or 11 valves and only put 2hrs max on the 800. Works great without the headset.
