  1. 600Mhz question

    That's correct - the guards band and the duplex gap are limited to 20mW. As the new occupants begin powering up their transmitters, you will be forced by the simple laws of physics to relocate to lower blocks. Our puny 10-250mW transmitters will get easily buried in the noise as these cell carriers start cranking up. In some cell blocks (5Mhz wide) it will be rather fast but in others, it will take a while - but that July 13 deadline is set in stone.
  2. Lercto SRc TXBAT questions

    The AA battery indicators are based on the Eveready AA's and reflect the voltage curves exhibited by that brand. There are some improved chemistry AA batteries out now such as the Duracell Quantum Alkalines that are quite a bit different. So, my recommendation is to buy batteries in bulk, test the curve on the first set of batteries and adjust your interpretations of the meters accordingly for that batch - batteries are getting more different by the day. We can't keep up with all the brands and they don't behave the same. For what it is worth, we have just finished a firmware update for the SRC that adds the SSM LB50 battery to the list for monitoring purposes so you don;t have to use the timer. Watch our website for the new version to be posted. Version 1.20
  3. UCR 411A bad power input

    The service department can overnight a jack to you - call them at 1-800-821-1121. Definitely cheaper to fix than replacing the unit (although we would love to have you get another unit :^). Gotham's tech probably have one available. JC Communications can definitely take care of it as well. https://jayceecomms.com/
  4. Congrats to Mark Weingarten and the Dunkirk Sound Crew!

    Congratulations Mark! I know it was a tough shoot - I enjoyed hearing how the sausage was made at the CAS dinner - just shows what a craftsman can do with good tools and great talent! Gordon
  5. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Yes, we will send to indiviudals - Have you checked with Trew to see if they don't already have one?

    No, the SRC-A1 (unless it is a VERY low Serial number) has updated RF boards already - I'll check the serial # sequence with Production and let you know. But we caught those issues way back after the first hundred units shipped (the walkie issue). A1 is RF solid now (except for the scanner and smart tune issue). B1 and C1 are different board revisions and the fix for those is in - beta testers are happy. We are waiting for the new boards to arrive. Once they are here, we will mount the components on the boards, calibrate and test and then announce the process for getting those of you with irritating B1's and C1's updated. The issue there seems to be a threshold thing - most folks have been happy (especially the B1's - C1's have a higher incident rate) and some have been miserable. Regardless, we will take care of you.
  7. The SRC firmware update for the A1's carrying the Doug Pearson discovered bug fix is now available at our website http://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/category/104-src.html Version 1.18 fixes the 9.2Mhz offset an scan/screen weirdness. A group of mixers in St. Louis indicated they were going to have an update party to update all of theirs at once - that's a great idea. I might even pay for the pizza! Let me know when and where - We will be loaning SRUSB endplates to those who can't get to a dealer or party conveniently - we will begin that program next week (we need a bit more prep time to be ready for this) so stay tuned for details. DON'T send you units in to us - they might just sit there until we have things set up. I'll post the process shortly. Gordon

  9. Congratulations to CAS Awards winners

    Let me be the first to offer congratulations to the team at Sound Devices for their win at the CAS Awards for the Product of the Year. Great job by a great team. And congratulations to every sound mixer honored by a nomination or an award - yours is a tough job and the end results are always to impressive. Keep up the good work!

    We have 50 plates in the works right now - as soon as they clear production, we will start the loaner pool and organize the loan program. I'v even hired a person for customer service to handle this (plus the boards swap and block changes). We will post everywhere we can think of when all the ducks are properly aligned and start sending them out. You will get the endplate, a return shipping label, a piece of shipping tape and a reusable box. After you have reprogrammed your units, you will simply rebox the unit, use the tape to seal up the box, realize that you just sealed in the shipping label, open the box again, take out the shipping label, spend two hours looking for another price of tape to seal the box back, slap on the label, notice that you have now left the endplate sitting on the counter because the label was under it in the box, re-open the box, return the endplate to the interior, tape it up for the third time and ship it back to us. Or, if you don't want to do it the way I probably would, take the shipping label out first, pack the endplate, tape up the box, then slap the label on and ship it. Whichever is easier............ They are good folks - we like working with them

    The issue with the Sound Devices 688 is related to their recent firmware release. They contacted us and our engineering department has spent considerable time checking and it has been narrowed down to a firmware glitch in the 688. We are sending SD a current unit so they can chase down their bug. Our bug has nothing to do with their bug. They aren't even the same species, so we don't have to worry about cross breeding and getting a new bug. In short, their firmware issue is unrelated to our firmware issue. (what I would like to know is what exactly is "firm" about firmware......) Remember, the scan bug is ONLY on the A1 band units.

    See you all there!
  13. Lectrosonics SRc Receiver Announced

    Here's the current status - we have some new RF board designs in beta test in the field right now - if these tests go as well as expected, we will begin building production quantities of boards and take care of anyone having issues (regardless of purchase date) with a complete board swap - This has been elusive - as Dafydd Cooksey pointed out - lots of guys have had no problems with their units - it's been a small percentage with problems- but persistent enough (like Dayfdds unit) that we have been making changes in the design. Especially perplexing because we can't duplicate the problems here in New Mexico. We are very close now and hoping these new boards resolve your issues. Don't sweat the serial numbers or purchase dates. Once we confirm this board revision, we will take care of you. It will still be a bit - we have to begin building the boards from scratch and put them through QC first - and we are still waiting on the beta field reports - the first ones in are very encouraging but not enough data yet to pull the trigger on full blown production.
  14. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

  15. Lectrosonics SRc Receiver Announced

    Without diving into the gritty details - the transmitted signal is an error in a predictor algorithm that has been put back int he analog realm, then converted back into digital again upon pickup by the receiver. This error data is then added to the predictor digital signal in the receiver and then converted into analog audio - the AES endplate is converting the resultant analog signal back into the digital realm. It's complicated but the end result is AES3. Gordon
