    bag drop

    that is a cheaper solution in one unit. Very nice. Does anyone make a dual cat 5 cable that would work?

    bag drop

    After finally seeing the advantage of a bag drop instead of an antenna drop I took the plunge Saturday. I ordered two Cat Tails from Sound Tools website, there is a male and female, on Saturday afternoon and it arrived Sunday evening. Their website link takes you to Amazon to complete the purchase. They are nicely packaged and look like a quality product. If this works out I will probably get another one so I can have 8 channels in my drop bag and use two of the channels to send Comtek and boom return back to the set drop bag with gender changers. They also sell a very hearty cat 5 cable. I have started with 100 feet, the cost works out to something under two dollars a foot.
  3. I looks like you can log in and email a list of invitees.
  4. how about 10 a.m. Saturdays? I think I can carve out a few minutes of my not so busy schedule.
  5. Just logged on to this, pretty cool. No one else was online.
  6. Has anyone every filed for unemployment? Will this come back on the production company?
  7. I just got word my movie is on Hiatus with 5 days to go.
  8. Our set medic offered B12 injections to boost our immune system. I had one last Friday and yesterday. We had one person not show up on Thursday because of the fear, otherwise we seem to be a small group that is isolated in the country. 5 more days of 20.

    I suspect many of you have dealt with this issue. I am two weeks into a movie and my left ear is ringing 24 hours a day now. I bought an earpiece for the two way radio that is very comfortable but two days after installing it the ringing started. Of course I realize I should stop using it but wanted to know what options there are for combining the two way into the mixer headphones. I am using a 664. We are using Motorola radios. regards John In okc

  12. I am going to glue and screw this to the CL12 somewhere. I went to a mall store for UPS shipping and they wanted 400 dollars to ship overnight. Ouch. Wont do that again, it's worth a drive to Fed Ex office. I can only imagine that they did this so some one would not get confused and plug usb power into the mixer? Once again trying to save us from ourselves creates other problems.
  13. My day off tomorrow. Sending it back to SD.
  14. has any one had that tiny micro usb receptacle break off? Is there any way to wire it direct? I am one week into a movie and that cord got snagged when I had a bunch of folks lift my cart up some stairs. The receptacle has a number of small tabs that look like the are not soldered and cary the voltage into the cl12. I cleaned them off and have some thick super glue setting. There are also two registration pins for the receptacle and it doesn't look like they were soldered very well. One side does not look soldered at all and the other was barely attached. I will call SD tomorrow morning an see if I can get another small board with the connectors on the way. It doesn't look too hard to replace. When I first looked at that connector I thought that will not last and I was right. not the end of the world but I have grown quite fond of the board, mostly for the easy buttons and function keys. john in OKC.
  15. It's omnidirectional UHF
