Hi all, i hav a noob question (new to EVE),
I have accomplished all steps of probe scanniong (exploration) mission.
now i would like to start probing "non testing site", when i try to do a scan, i only get "testing sites" in the scanner result window.
Did i missed something ?

Scan result filters? Probe radius? Tried in a different system?

The training sites are located in the systems where the Career Agents are located. Go to other systems to find the real sites.

Hint: Scan in systems that are away from the main trade/mission hubs that have low to no population count.

Also train the exploration skills at least to lv 3. Level 4 skills with good equipment (Sisters of Eve Launcher and Probes, Ship with scanning bonus fitted with scan rigs) and you'll be able to get 100% signal lock on most sites.

Good Luck and welcome to exploration.

The 'test sites' you are scanning are due to you scanning in the system the school for scanning is in.

Tip, go next door.

Also, do what the other freaks above me say.
