  For all and any dowsers out there have you had any good positive results.
 I would like to hear some of your experience and & out comes from  the use of the L rods

I for one have found my water line in front yard when I had no idea where it was.  This was using one bent coat hanger.

My friend who has dowsed for many years, constructed an L rod from silver spoons and he has been able to
locate caches by driving slowly down the farm to market roads.

Look, I don't mean to be a spoilsport, but dowsing is so outdated, unreliable, and strenuous it is only a last resort if you are stranded somewhere. I'm not saying it doesn't work. I have found things by dowsing. Sort of like using a metal detector to find gold in a trashy area--you have to be darned lucky. Not that you can't dowse an "area" but to get right on the spot is going to take years of practice. I would never dowse a spot then dig without confirming it with a metal detector. Matter of fact I just wouldn't do it to start with. Like one dowse says, if you start at the age of five and practice every day, by the time you reach 25 or thirty years old you should be a top dowser. Look into frequency generators. They have the best discrimination by far.

My friend that dowsed went with me to suspected TH sites. I had several sites marked on map(Treasure Map) that he
had not seen of likely burial spots.  As we drove down a couple of county roads slowly, he did detect those spots without even knowing where I planned to look.  Real neat that that "L" rod of silver turned hard at each location from the road and then turned back toward the road when passed each one.  He would say..."likely spot that way" as each one was pointed.
.......of course the rest of the story is not necessary.....
I do know he has found sites on his own and his friend used nothing but a dowsing rod and a shovel around dallas, tx and they together would travel down old FM roads that went back to the 1900's

Dowsing rods are notorious for hitting on mineralized ground. One of the clues is you can't get a pinpoint or you get several hits over a wide area.

I understand it is easy to discard information that doesn't fit into what you want to hear. I am offering you valuable information here for free. Like the saying goes, "If you have a good idea (this isn't my idea), don't worry about somebody stealing it, you'll have to ram it down their throat."

I can't recall the percentage of dowsed hotspots that end up mineralized pockets, but it's at least 95%. Just like gold, minerals settle in to the low places and act like a resonator. In almost all cases a solid gold target gives a weaker response. And to make matters worse, practicing with a freshly placed gold target gives a very weak response compared to a tiny amount of flour gold that has been long time buried. That even happens with the MFD equipment (not so much with the minerals because of good discrimination) if you don't have some kind of weight cancelling. Of course some dowsers have learned to overcome this through mental "programming" learned through the school of hard knocks.

Even assuming that you got the dowse correct, as it is with remote viewing, a cousin of dowsing, interpretation of the signals is key to success and it is also the most difficult part to get right. While some naysayers try to project that they make no mistakes, anyone who thinks so is fooling themself. And it's not just with dowsing or RV'ing. MFD equipment, even the ones with the electronic receivers require some interpretation, but the big difference is you don't have to get the dowse correct.

 Hello Goverton and Mike, thanks for your coments.
 I found both of your comments interesting.
 Mike what frequency generators would you recomend.

If you are just starting out, I would try something low cost. Vernellelectronics.com has something to get you started. I think it is called the VR-300G costs $285. That comes with rods and the Anomoly Qualifier (weight cancelling). That is just about a give away price. And if you don't like it they have a return policy (there is a restocking fee).

Of course there are others on the market that are more advanced but higher priced. Send me a PM if you like. I suggest you don't try to build your own at first. For starters you will probably not get it right. There is much deceptive info out there, frequencies, voltages, offsets, even rod construction, are all questionable at best. And to top that off, many people on the forums who claim to be proponents are actually not. They don't even know how to use one properly. Matter of fact I don't know anyone who actuallly uses one that spends any time on the forums, only on rare occasions.
