Be sure to visit (and like!) the ECRDA's Facebook page - it's where we post the latest club happenings, photos, and events.

MDHTalk (Metal Detecting Hobby Talk) is a vast storehouse of knowledge and how-to info for anyone into metal detecting. You'll find the latest info on state laws regulating our hobby, newsletters, tutorials, state-by-state club listings, a calendar of events, and oh so much more. We especially like the "Before You Buy That Metal Detector Handbook" with its detailed advice on how to buy a machine, including a competition detector.
American Digger magazine

Perhaps the best magazine on metal detecting & treasure hunting there is. Butch Holcombe knows his stuff!
American Digger Forum
