  1. Sound cart cabling

    Boston Green for installs...old school
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    Yes, LOL
  5. Withholding Audio Files

    IDK, Interesting idea, but some clients don't know the difference... They might use it
  6. Lectro Block Frequencies in CSV or Excel?

    Shouldn’t be too difficult to set up a spreadsheet yourself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 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
  8. Thank you, Larry, You're some quick ; - ) JR
  9. 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
  10. Lercto SRc TXBAT questions

    I usually go by timer setting with eneloop pro, or Ikea Ladda 2450mAh batteries If the tx is SM v, a or whatever 3 hours plus is good. Change at subs, good til lunch. The bigger 2 cell Smqv etc probably last until lunch with no change... YMMV.
  11. WiFi and my mid 2012 MacBook Pro

    Update airport/Bluetooth cable replacement made no difference. Oh well, only $15 and was worth a try. not even worth sending it back. Anyone need a functioning Bluetooth/airport cable? I have one for free...

  13. WiFi and my mid 2012 MacBook Pro

    Thanks, Chris, This applies to the 15 inch MBP, same vintage as my 13 inch MBP. Worth a look anyway Jim

  15. Show me your bag

    On my cart I use MCA 208Ms, Bag not set up with multi couplers yet, but earlier config, I used MC 204s. Very robust, but i noticed filtering is only below 25 MHz - should be higher for our purposes, although interference has been minimal in my experience here in Nova Scotia, mileage may vary elsewhere. They were out long before small distros like the PSC Multi, when I was first setting up UHF distro and didn't want to bring the Lectrosonics big six pack around on portable setups. Separate units for each antenna.
