    What's your feedback on the 10t ? I'm thinking a lot about getting one ;

    The best Leatherman for me : strong, only what I need, and nothing to loose (like those with several screwdriver heads you can add to the body). And yes the pliers function is awesome : https://www.leatherman.com/crunch-1.html

    DIY sma antenna

    Hi Mark, The tension on the antenna when I close the rain protection of the bag is my only concern about this antenna. It doesn't seem to be a huge tension, but still it is there… So I understand the choice of multi strand cable : more flexible. On the other hand, I love the fact that my antenna are straight and always are. When cutting the antennas, my pliers doesn't do a clean cut and the little"imperfection" it leaves is perfect to hold the antenna in the solder "bubble". I thought about using a dremel though. Thanks for the link at B&H. I'll need to find something else though, as I am in west Africa.

    Merci beaucoup Larry, I'll sleep better not feeling the urgent need to remake all of them... Impressive Mark, I haven't been as far as you! I am using the antennas only on receivers (I am using UWP-D11 modified to SMA) but also quickly tried them with Lectro SRB (even at the wrong length, they work very well). What wire are you using ? And where do you find those small caps ? Thanks Roubi (Grégoire de Courtivron)

    Thanks for the quick answer. Practically speaking,would going from a 0.6mm diameter to 1mm change a lot ? I kind of feel lazy thinking about redoing all my antennas... I indeed noticed the size of the antenna on the SNA600.

    I bought this one : https://www.ebay.fr/itm/0-6mm-Nitinol-Super-Elastic-Wire-1-Metre-1000mm-TiNi-Nickel-Titanium/222489144482?_trkparms=aid%3D444000%26algo%3DSOI.DEFAULT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20170221122447%26meid%3Dfd961ddb189442f6992c7f1f5d4f9a92%26pid%3D100752%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D3%26sd%3D222504917851%26itm%3D222489144482&_trksid=p2047675.c100752.m1982 But it looks more or less the same. Thank you for the pdf. And thank you for the compliment ; coming from you, it means a lot ! But here is a question : how the diameter of the antenna affects the signal ? Here, I am using a 0.6mm cable but would a 1mm or 1.5mm add anything ? Thanks

    If you check the video on youtube, I have added a link to the different parts. I'll make the dipole when I get a rf distribution system !

    Hi, I thought it could be of some interest for some of you : I make my own antennas with straight and right angle connector for a very cheap price and they are at least as efficient as the official ones. So here is a video about it :

    Hi, Why do you keep the foam around the 60 inside the zeppelin ?

    Recording puppeteers

    I used both headset and lavalier on the forehead. The lavalier works better as it just doesn't move whereas the actors might hit several times the headset because of their arms up in the air.
