  1. I use an inexpensive USB power bank, (5000mah), velcro it to the back of CL12 w/ super short Right Angle Micro USB cable. Lasts 3 full days no problem.
  2. I pack my SMQV's in drink Koozies. The TX's stay nice and snug w/ a little piece of foam stuffed in between the two of them. Then you can put them in the lectro pouch or wherever. Mine are stored in front pouch of my audio bag ready for deployment. Clients always get a laugh at the different Koozies I have.
  3. iPowers are the way to go. 520's last two days in Comteks, I also have some 700's but use them for HM/ UM400 use. Using the 7's you should easily get 3 days out of them.
  4. I'm using the cases that came w/ my powerex, the 8 pack cases are fine and I've never had them break open on me, but the 4 holder do sometimes.
  5. Curious to what source you are using for the 5v mini usb power. Using my remote audio BDSv4U w/ IDX Li NP1 L7S, works intermittently... But using a cheap USB power bank works flawlessly and lasts days w/o recharging. I've given up on the USB BDS power. Whatever source you are using my guess is that it's not getting enough power.
  6. VW Passat Wagon...tons of space in back, even more w/ seats folded down. I had a Jetta wagon..too small.. Fun car though.
  7. Uh...seriously. I'd change the title of your post..not what came to my mind immediately...just saying. Just record audio Seperately...slate or clap sync.
  8. They apparently are a "Hot" back to school item this year...I went back to my local Target (PA) to grab a few spares and they were sold out, then I was in NJ last week and stopped at a Target, and they only had a few left in the bin. So silly.
  9. Hey Thomas, that's a bummer that your Lectro's can't be upgraded, I've never had any BLK changes done but I would probably just try and sell them before investing in a BLK change personally . I was surprised when I looked up how (relatively) inexpensive the UCR's are... I figured if i picked up a set in a BLK I already own I could utilize the scan option on that unit instead of just guessing/ fishing. I really like all the features that the Zax setup gives you but...it's a bit overkill for my needs, as is a Lectro SR set. I'm leaning towards the UCR/SMQV setup.
  10. So you think the UCR's are on par w/ G3's in sound quality ? Hmm... I'm cart and bag based somedays , If I go w/ the UCR's I would use a SNA600 on the SMQV to help with the range. I'm a little worried about range on the G3's when I'm on the cart. I'm not exactly wanting to drop $6k- ish on a scratch track system. 2 UCR's and 1 SMQV are around $2600-ish..2 sets of G3's $1300 -ish.
  11. I'm sort of in the same boat w/ Thomas...i'm in need a single Ch scratch for 2 cam shoots... I was looking hard at the G3's, I have a G2 and it has served me well..I've been looking for a 2nd in the same block "B" but now I'm leaning towards a set of UCR100's paired with a SMQV. Really wish they had a AA battery version of the UCR100's..I hate 9v's. Can anyone give their opinion on the UCR's sound quality vs a G3/2 setup? My thoughts were to get the UCR's in a BLK I already have that way I can at least scan and coordinate easier.
  12. So...sort of a DIY. $.89 at Target, back to school supplies. Fits NP1 perfectly. I usually keep mine in the boxes they came in...but they are looking rough lately. Upgrade!

  14. Unscripted variety... Filming all over the U.S. Two seasons on "American Diner Revival", renovation/ design series. I'll park either outback near video village or near front door area... They would renovate a diner and i'd have full range inside, and depending on size, usually the kitchen area as well. Four Seasons on "Barnwood Builders", construction/ De-construction type show. I'll park "out of sight" somewhere or sometimes in plain view in a camo tent. Talent (8) are all over the place heavy equipment, climbing logs, sweating etc. TX's in pockets at 100mw. No probs at all. 664/ CL12 3 SRB's BLK 19, 22, 24 3 411's BLK 20, 21, 26 all TX's SMQV's all powered by Li NP1's, One thing that did surprise me is that the SRB's seem to get a much better signal then the 411's with the RF MULTI/ ALP620 and/ or the SNA600's, so much that I re built my setup so the SRB's are the primary go to systems. Of course I always coordinate all freqs wherever I land, and do a quick walk around test to make sure nothing silly is going to bust me up.
  15. Yup, never. I was using SNA600's before in my setup and they were great, but they didn't always have the range i needed... I was always keeping and eye on RF levels and wishing i had setup closer to the action. With the ALP's it's like BOOM, signal is "locked" in hard no worries. Running all TX's at 100mw.
