  1. Sorry couldn't say anything at that point, now the cat is out of the bag
  2. Life time warranty would be great
  3. You might want to wait till after NAB
  4. A nano nano would be great to have
  5. Thank you for the update got my Johns and Patricks confused. Mojunk was something from the 60's we hams called Motorola products My mind and body are failing!!
  6. Mojunk fan here. Much like Patrick Swaze said many years ago, "takes a licking and keeps on ticking". With the shrinking frequencies, you might want to look at the DMR radios.
  7. I bought one last year, works great.
  8. I was at my local Home Depot today and saw these really nice cases for small bits of gear. I am a sucker for cases. Removable storage cups, large open compartment in the middle, weather sealing around the lid. About 22x5 inches. Best part $30. Not affiliated with Home Depot or Ridgid.
  9. A Dugan like algorithm will be "taught" to better distinguish dialogue from rustle, speech from clanks, human voice from clatter. A Cedar like algorithm will be "taught" to better remove the undesireable. Ambitious actors will have sub-cutaneous DPA like mics fitted in their nose, wired through to a medical implant Lemo like plug socket. Tiny self scanning, frequency agile, self recording radio links, become common place. The producer will turn up with a wrist worn device that has all the necessary stuff built in, with on, off, record, buttons (with 15 minute pre-record), and an algorithm will monitor for anything requiring human judgement, alert the human, and playback on voice command. If you only knew, there are already some news anchors with implanted mics. No clothing noise. Has made life easier in some cases. YMMV
  10. Fan of the TCB series. The TRx+ will do WC. Wireless and WiFi capable. The Betso is another good one.
  11. Two watts at those frequencies will toast you. Then of course we only use about 10% of our brains so I suppose we have some to spare!!
  12. Soshine have worked well for me over the past several years.
  13. Can't speak for RA, but if you build your own you can go with most any configuration. I personally have stereo return in mine. Some folks even include video return.
  14. for many years now
  15. From time to time I have needed a battery operated speaker and made do with some small off the shelf powered speaker. I have a fairly extensive junk part room so I was able to keep the cost down. The speaker is a small two driver Teac speaker from that auction place. The preamp and amplifier also came from there. I chose to go with V mount batteries because I am invested in that system and the is a D tap on the battery plate giving an additional source of power. You could use any of the small camera batteries out there as mounts are readily available. 1/8", 1/4" TRS and XLR inputs go to the line level preamp, then to a 60w class D amp. An additional bluetooth receiver covers the various client audio sources easily. I choose not to mount the battery internal to minimize change to the speaker cabinet. The preamp and amplifier are very small boards. Everything is mounted to the back plate of the speaker cabinet. My cost was less than 80USD, ymmv. If anyone wants to build one I have another speaker and the two audio connectors available at cost plus shipping. First come on those items. Just post here if interested. Testing has revealed power consumption of about 4-5watts at a reasonable volume so the 70w V mount will last a day or more.
