  1. Thank, you Patrick. That is what I thought. I do currently adjust my receive 620s for that very reason, also using back pattern null for interfering signals. just like using a cardioid pattern on a mic to advantage.
  2. Hello group, Is anyone using this antenna for comms? I am using a dipole at the moment for our crew comms signal from a DCHT to M2R receivers. Range is generally less than the incoming range of a DPR. Would like to get more usable signal range out to the crew with their M2Rs. Since the ALP 620 has a lot more gain than a dipole, will using the shark fin give us noticeably more range? Since the 620 is passive, I think the 50 mW signal will not harm the antenna. Or am i wrong? Best regards, Jim Rillie
  3. Wow, never heard of that one in my experience.
  4. We have found with an SNA 600 on the antenna mast connected to the transmitter with an extension cable, the range is much better.
  5. Haven’t had any kinks. They have worked well from Day1. Our only issues have been with battery loading in the M2Rs. Very difficult to close the cover with rechargeable AAs. We always get them closed but with resistance. Hoping with age they will loosen up to a happy medium. And the sound is great. IMHO.
  6. A shark fin is a log periodic antenna AFAIK.

    Looks like CAT6 has 4 twisted pairs with claimed very low crosstalk. Maybe you could add XLR gender benders at each end on the returns, or roll your own XLR to ´Ethernet fanouts. Just a thought. No guarantees.
  8. I have one, have been using it for about 4 or 5 years now. Mine is not regulated AFAIK (no options). The ability to turn stuff on and off individually from the K Art switches is great for regulating the cart current draw, and the power meter is great, just like the smaller boxes. I also have a BGDh with battery cup hard-wired for the doc setup. Never had any voltage issues, maybe because none of my outlets seem to be regulated. After all, most of the professional quality equipment we use already has its own regulation built in so to speak.
  9. Maybe EV cardioid RE15s/? More reach than a 635, which was often used much closer than those overheads.
  10. One thing - if you are monitoring on headphones, the room reverb will be more noticeable than when monitoring a speaker - maybe it's not as bad as you think. Just a randy Canadian opinion ( - ;
  11. Thank you, Phiip for putting it so well. I had the same impression, but couldn't draft a reply that didn't sound too negative.
  12. Looks like it works for bacteria, doesn't seem to mention viruses.
  13. My experience with SSM battery life matches Constantin’s
  14. The description says the unit works with 75kHz deviation , or is that a typo? I thought all transmitters with UHF analogue transmission were now 50 kHz deviation by law.
