  1. A perfect splitter would have 6 dB of loss with all ports terminated. A good, real world splitter will have 6.5 to 7 dB of loss with all ports terminated. If your splitter were terminated at all ports you would see the expected loss. Your 5 dB is probably dead on for unterminated ports. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  2. As I've said to the crew many times, "There's nothing like a second set of eyeballs looking at a problem." Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  3. Thanks Klaus. The numbers now begin to make sense. My reason for running the numbers is they seemed awfully conservative, even for you all. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  4. Schoeps specs 4.4 mA at 48 Volts or 211 mW power draw. Lectro NP-50 is 1000 mAh at 3.6 Volts or 3600 mWh. Divide 3600 mW by 211 mW and we get 17 hours. The stated 6+ hrs would indicate an overall efficiency of 33%. This seems a bit low unless there is a lot of secondary regulation. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  5. I'm 99% sure, it would be in a completely different package. LEF
  6. Precisely. I'll try to be neutral here and not sound like a Lectro ad, though being the original fanatic, it's difficult. One design goal was to make the DCR822 capable of standalone performance like the UCR411, i.e., battery operation. However, the Vector Diversity and four strong front ends, two for each receiver, required more power than for the single front end 411. In addition there is more power needed for digital processing, recording and AES operation. The choice of 4 AA's was made because of universal availability, good power density, customer cost, and reasonable
  7. Yeah, we lost several engineers over the Dick Tracy 2-way wrist radio. LEF
  8. I think that's a misprint. It was supposed to be "Waxing and Detailing a Show Quality Tumbleweed" Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  9. Hi Vincent, You can download Wireless Designer, https://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/Wireless-Designer™/wireless-designer-2.html and plug in the transmitter frequencies manually. Calculating by hand takes a lot of effort if you have more than a few frequencies. You need a scanning receiver to make the Wireless Designer find frequencies on its own, but at least plugging in trial frequencies in the program is faster than trying one physical wireless setup after another. Some other members may have experience with a simpler program. Also: You may not have intermod; it could ju
  10. There were two Russian (lest we forget) thistle images for two products. One of those, the big thistle, has been put off to Oct 6. However, the virtual Sound Summit will give an early look see on Oct 2. https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fthesoundsummit.org%2F%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR10ObWyuqRTQGSoBHFNYMHZF7tsPvgz_hL2WL-LijsBbX9zd__tPIFGv3s&h=AT1jCSiohox7ZueEa3E3LZOy9TLA9RL0eHlRSjhMoMaNnyULpGjrmc90oT83MI51CBY5OtQHTwHKoSv1OB29u4Z3dySOCBreMmxD57larAPwzggpMkXkjSBZjOjRjRtYEth_TFU4kdW3vmpxDg&__tn__=-UK-y-R&c[0]=AT0vVNK8ZKLoATUGYISIIkViYXo5aaGdMgU8lDPEoVFLfDPoGTszqQizBQY2fspkkkaUT0
  11. That page is down for the moment (???) though if you do a search on DCHR on the Lectro site, the data sheet and manual are live. Best Regards, Larry Fisher It went up an hour early (time zone malfunction). Will be back in 6 minutes. Splitting second hands instead of hairs. LEF
  12. Can't keep keep 'em down on the farm once they've seen New Mexico. LEF
