  1. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    The manual confirms my suspicions: "The recorder samples at 44.1kHz rate with a 24 bit sample depth. (the rate was selected due to the required 44.1kHz rate used for the digital hybrid algorithm)." Changing the internal sample rate may not be a simple matter (or it might).
  2. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    I think the manuals and photos were still protected under the confidentiality letter when I first located the filings. Sounds like an exciting product.
  3. Review of the Lectrosonics L Series

    Larry, thanks for this information. We just got 4 LMb's yesterday, and the LED on/off feature is not in the manual yet - even though the firmware is a year and a half old. The menu is pretty self explanatory but the up/down isn't at all obvious and is nice to know about. Those LEDs are pretty bright.
  4. Does anybody know what kind of notice the new license holders are required to give to the general public before they commence operations? I am pretty sure they have to notify incumbent stations by mail but I can't find any requirements of notice to the general public. And, I discovered today (finally slogging through some more FCC data files) that in my location the blocks T-Mobile obtained have no incumbent TV stations anyway. So, I suppose I could just do a scan one day and discover that 30MHz of spectrum is gone overnight.
  5. DPA 4063 loud pops

    I have rewired several of our DPAs straight to TA5F for Lectrosonics. In our case this is a bonus because I can wire them so they are compatible with our ancient M185s, which we still use if we need more than 24 channels. The DPA adapter shorts out the VHF antenna by connecting the shell to shield.
  6. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Yesterday I found some interesting equipment authorizations on the FCC web site. They were granted in the last two weeks, and the information in the filings matches wideband versions of the SM transmitter, with references to both single (SMWB) and dual battery (SMDWB) packages. FCC ID search here: https://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid of particular interest were FCC IDs: DBZSMWBA1 DBZSMWBB1 DBZSMWBB2 DBZSMWBC1
