    Adding waterproof pot to system

    I would think yes to your last question, Jay.

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    Yes, in Safari here on Mac OS

    Rechargeable battery management on location

    Exactly what we have been doing since we started with rechargeables. Interesting how many of us come up independently with the same solutions.

    How can boom ops be more diplomatic?

    Good advice, David. This our method as well.

    Survey: Wireless receivers integration in the Cantar family.

    I replied to the survey, and suggested Lectro for consideration, since many of us all over the world are using Lectro. And yes, the dual receivers are the ones that make sense for this concept.

    Why Comteks?

    What is a block lithium 9 volt? I have been using iPower 9v lithium batteries for years in all my Comtek 216s, both M216s and PR 216s. They work well and last for an acceptably long time on a charge.

    IFB on the cheap.

    don't bother, said the curmudgeon. Use what works - Comteks or IFBs. Why stress over stuff that can be more expensive the long run in time and energy, when we already have equipment that works reliably.

    Withholding Audio Files

    IDK, Interesting idea, but some clients don't know the difference... They might use it

    Lectro Block Frequencies in CSV or Excel?

    Shouldn’t be too difficult to set up a spreadsheet yourself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Lectronics antennae for Zaxcom QRX200

    I my experience dipoles make a significant (ymmv) improvement in range compared to a whip, but they should be up in the air a bit. I wouldn't think much improvement would be seen if they are still at bag level
  14. Thank you, Larry, You're some quick ; - ) JR
  15. Greetings , I want to use a couple of my unused SNA antennas to transmit from Comtek BST 75-216 transmitters. If I extend the length of the arms from maximum length to a 1/4 wave or 1/2 wave of 216MHZ wavelength, this should work? I don't have formula, but can extrapolate from existing antennas I have. Is there a work around for this, or is there a shop out there who could do this? AND... The answer is: REMOTE AUDIO MIRACLE WHIP MW216 KIT Best regards, Jim Rillie PSM
