  1. I use Sound Guys Solutions quick mount with the locking stud with my MKH816 and Rycote with no problems.
  2. Measure just the part of the antenna that is above the connector.
  3. Paul, See post number 40. I think it will answer your question. mark
  4. Hi Vin, My wife and I will give one of your recipes a try. Thanks for sharing. mark
  5. See photo number 1. The part numbers stickers are in the shot.

  7. I found this wireless guide by Lectrosonics very informative. https://www.lectrosonics.com/images/PDFs/wg2000.pdf
  8. Guys, I am glad everyone had some fun with my DIY. The image has been on my phone for almost a year and I am happy that I can delete it now.
  9. I looked for the Lectrosonics annual April 1 post this morning, but did not find one. Happy April 1sts.
  10. I am looking for recommendations for the next step in my power distribution bow. Thinking of putting it into a pelican case.
  11. Hi Trey, I do not have the single battery model. LTs and SMDWDs only.
  12. Max, I thought I would test some Eneloop Pro batteries in a SMDWB today. SMDWB @ 50mW Backlit On LED On 7 + hours
  13. Just a heads up. The “Lectrosonics Family” lost Howard Kaufman last week. I think you will get a response to your questions, but it may take a little longer. Check out the Lectrosonics Instagram page for more information about Howard’s legacy. My condolences to his family and his Lectrosonics family.

  15. The best way to search the JWSound site is to use google and add jwsound to the starch topic like this - long shotgun microphones jwsound
  16. Sean, I believe you can send the cos11 to Japan for repair. I have had Wilcox Sound repair 2 Cos 11 lavs for me. What did slow my repair down was that Sanken was back ordered on repair parts for white Cos 11 mics. Sorry to hear you had poor service from Wilcox. There is a guy on JW Sound from Istanbul that is repairing Cos-11s to. best mark
  17. I bet if you gave the exact model number of the 3pin Lemo connector someone will have your answer. I have only wired 4 & 5 pin solder type Lemo connector myself.
  18. Contact Lemo. They post good information on their website.
  19. I sent an email to Ambient. I will post the reply, but still curious if anyone ran into this problem. mark
  20. Ambient Eumel EMP 5 S Voltage Inconsistencies I was testing the voltage on 4 Ambient Eumel EMP 5S 48V power converter and found the following: EMP # 1 Voltage on Pins 1 & 2 = 6.15V and on Pins 1 & 3 = 2.18V EMP # 2 Voltage on Pins 1 & 2 = 6.15V and on Pins 1 & 3 = 2.18V EMP # 3 Voltage on Pins 1 & 2 = 6.15V and on Pins 1 & 3 = 0V EMP # 4 Voltage on Pins 1 & 2 = 6.15V and on Pins 1 & 3 = 0V All 4 Eumel EMP 5 S units will work with my Sanken COS 11-D, Sennheiser MKE2 which are wired for Lectrosonics servo bias. My Countryman B6s (servo wiring ) will work on the EMP #1 and #2, but will not work with EMP #3 and #4 due to lack of audio signal/voltage on pin 3. My Question. Has anyone had this problem or know of a change that Ambient made in the past? I am getting ready to take the units apart to compare the different units, but I thought I would ask here first. Many Thanks, mark
  21. You should build this type of antenna for one of your transmitters. It is Omni directional, most antennas for receivers are directional like log periodic dipole array (LPDA) “Shark Fin” antennas.
  22. SMA connectors do have a 500 “connection cycle” rating. I have made SMA antennas and can say from experience the soldering the SMA connector pin on to steel cable can be challenging. Also the wax like material that forms the dielectric insulator is made of polytetrafluoroethylene. I had to look that name for you, it is not on the top of my mind.
  23. Please help the sound community by purchasing your gear from dealers that support the professional sound community. Gotham Sound Trew Audio Location Sound Corp and Pro Sound (Florida) 954-289-4770. Good luck on your gear research.
  24. I have built BNC antennas before. Here is a photo of a BNC antenna that I made attached to a Lectrosonics ground plane antenna.
