  1. It's omnidirectional UHF
  2. I just got around to getting a PSC antenna distribution box this January and finally got it hooked up inside my mixer. I was testing the thing out and yes it helps with my Sennheiser paddles. I had this old Radio Shack antenna laying outside in the back yard for 15 or so years. I brought it in and tried it out. It took the power from the PSC and worked better than my paddles.

    PSC RF mult

    I hate reception problems and I am about to purchase a new PSC multi for my two omni directional paddles. Question, what cable are most using to route the outputs from the distribution box. regards from Oklahoma

    thanks a bunch. I am looking at buying two dual receiver packages before the end of the year. The deal is thru Jan 3rd. My only hesitation is that when a manufacturer has a discount like this they are about to release a new model? I am leaning towards the smaller receiver for weight and it is 1000 dollars cheaper. I did notice the larger transmitter is listed at 100 MW and the small one is not. I use a SKP 3000 for my boom with a 3041 receiver and that system is working so good I am not going to mess with it. I could clean out my kit of a mixture of wireless systems and reduce the weight tremendously with the small dual receivers. I also have two Sennheiser paddle antenna's. Would they be of any use to the Wisycom? That would require an antenna distribution. I am thinking the receivers will be sufficient for what I do with just the supplied antenna. Thanks again for the feedback.

    Looking for some input about the Wisycom package deal right now for 3700 dollars. Question MTP40 or MTP41 transmitter? Question MCR 42 or MCR 52 for bag use? Question Any one using Sennheiser 5220 transmitters with these receivers? thanks in advance. John in OKC

    Will any later model transmitters work with this receiver? much thanks for any information.
  8. I have one arriving today. Little leery of starting a movie with a new piece of equipment. Gotta be bold. Normally I take chances but I have learned to be very conservative on shoots. 45 years of mistakes. Thats my selling point, I have made most of the mistakes already. In the 70's I fried two Nagra I's in a day. I have tried to run everything off batteries since.
  9. I am starting a new movie this Saturday and wanted to get some advice on a new work flow I am going to try. I have my recorder set up for 12 channels, I have never used that. Should I look for any gotcha's using the12 channel mode? I have a stable of Sennheiser 5220's and a couple of sk250's that are still working well. I have a mixture of 3041 and 6042 receivers. I usually put and record the boom on x2 and label it boom and was thinking about feeding channel 7 from a 6042 to that channel at line level. That way I have a constant monitor for that channel. I use x1 for comteks. I do a RL mix of the lavs and supply ISO tracks. I do have a cl12 that should arrive this week but I am a little leery of trying to many new things at once. I don't have the workspace for the CL 12 either. I work off the top of a Rocknroller. Also with the CL 12, how much shorter battery life? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. regards John in OKC
  10. I had a shoot with a URSA mini pro last week and I found the camera VU meter to be somewhat foreign and that I had to turn the volume up all the way on channel 2 and about 80 percent on channel 1 to get any kind of level. I was feeding from a 664 thru a 10 pin cable. Mic level seemed to work but line level was not enough. Any hints. regards John in OKC
  11. I really like it, about a year of use. It works great with my old sk250's and I have bought two 5220 II transmitters and they work great with it. I have two sony PVW transmitters for a camera hop and I have to turn them off to get the 6042 to do an auto set up. Great range on the freq's. 570 to around 630 something on both the transmitters and reciever. It was a little pricey (3500) but getting those used 5220 transmitters made up for the cost. Transmitters run 6 hours at 50 MW on one rechargeable AA.
  12. Three weeks in that heat was a long six months. My new Sennheiser 6042 got real hot. I kept that fan going with lots of AA batteries.
  13. Of the few online forums I have participated, the people in this forum and sound guys in general are a cut above. I always get good advice from some very experienced people. Thank You.
