  1. There aren't any good answers. Separate antenna systems would be the best. Keep in mind, that if an antenna and distribution system covers 470 to 941, all the cell phone traffic, etc., between 614 and 900+ Mhz will be going through the distribution amp also. It would be best on a new system to just use 941 MHz by itself, assuming you can get the number of channels into that band. If you need lots more channels, two antenna distribution systems probably makes sense anyway. Another way of saying it, is we haven't solved it yet, either. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  2. Thanks, Jeff. My relationship is more hate-hate. Lef
  3. Hi Ironfilm, I don't have any idea what I meant (!) I now get the group to page difference but how do you get the link to take some one to the particular discussion? Though I am smarter than the average creatures found under a wet log, Facebook baffles me. Thanks in advance, Larry Fisher
  4. On the Lectrosonics Facebook page around June 4, Benjamin Kall asks for pictures in a bag and Devendra Cleary shows one. If I knew how to do a better link, I would. I hate Facebook. Best Regards, Larry Fisher

    Not until you express that opinion. For information about SLAPP suits, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_lawsuit_against_public_participation To quote Dickens, who stole the expression, "...the law is an ass." And in fairness to the Law, many US jurisdictions are striking back against SLAPP suits. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  6. They wrote that current draw for 7.5 Volts. At 14 Volts it would be half that. I will get that changed to a range of values depending on input voltage. Our mistake. Best, Lef
  7. Hi Jon, You've got two guesses, neither of which is "no". Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  8. The squared tumbleweeds --Both a digital reference and the DSquared name. The three square tumbleweeds--Three digital products announced. "Are fully compatible with the rounder ones, often traveling in the same pack." --Compatible with older 400 series Digital Hybrid transmitters. "The squared corners cause the squared version to bounce higher, catching more wind and adding to their range." --Self explanatory. "...higher packing density, since it is well known that the West is running out of tumbleweed room." --Eight channels in 1RU as well making more efficient use of remaining spectrum. Dan Alighieri and "It was like inhaling sulpherous fumes from the nine circles of Hell". --Reference to Dante Alighieri and the nine circles of Hell in Dante's "The Inferno". There were some darn good guesses some so good we've been looking for hidden microphones in Engineering. It's tough because we've got dozens of them just laying around in the open. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  9. Phantom power on input 3 or leakage of phantom power to input 3? You might check between pins 1 and 2 and 1 and 3 for voltage or stray voltage. Recorders are not my field of expertise, however. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  10. The Venue output is just a seventh output from the internal distribution amp and 7 way splitter. It will have the same exact filtering as what goes to the plug in modules, i.e., blocks 28 and 29. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  11. I have never tried smoking tumbleweeds and don't intend to punish myself by doing so. One of our techs here tried smoking tumbleweeds once, a guy by the name of Dan Alighieri. A reader of the Berkely Barb, back in 1967, he had tried the craze of smoking banana peels and figured tumbleweeds might be better. He was very wrong. Once he could speak again, he said "It was like inhaling sulpherous fumes from the nine circles of Hell". I thought I'd just avoid that particular torment. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  12. Hi Nick, One big problem is that for circularly polarized reception, ideally you should have circularly polarized transmission. That is nearly impossible to do with a body pack transmitter. Even if you could, when the talent turns around, the left hand polarization becomes right hand polarization with theoretically zero reception, or vice versa. In multiple trials over the years at Lectro, we were never able to get improvements in performance using circularly polarized antennas at the receiver. YMMV. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  13. Though odd looking, the squared tumbleweeds are fully compatible with the rounder ones, often traveling in the same pack. The squared corners cause the squared version to bounce higher, catching more wind and adding to their range. Plant biologists think the squared shape is an evolution biased towards higher packing density, since it is well known that the West is running out of tumbleweed room. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
  14. Hi Inari, "Brown noise" is perfectly correct, similar to white noise or pink noise and is caused by Brownian motion. The scientist that Brownian motion was named after was Robert Brown, a botanist (!) (thanks Google). Brown noise is heavily weighted towards low frequencies. Starting with white noise, you can make pink noise with a complicated but gentle 3 dB per octave low pass filter. If you apply a steeper but simple 6 dB per octave low pass filter to white noise, you get brown noise. It's described as the rumbling noise of a large waterfall. Best Regards, Larry Fisher
