  1. I just started using it tomorrow
  2. To my ears, having used both, they are the speaker equivalent of 7506s (which I used for many years, but had to go away to something that more reflected what was really there) .
  3. The Hydra board for the PSC sixpack works for all the receivers in that sixpack - 2 six-packs with Hydra equals 12 channels of Hydra info. you can adjust all major parameters from the Cantar interface, and the display is excellent. No more fiddling around with hard to read receiver displays and fussy little buttons. Definitely a big plus for ham fisted old codgers like me. OK, that's all. I should not get into the other reasons some of us use the Cantar. Demo one, if you can, and give it a few days. Then you will be a little better prepared to make that decision. Same goes for the Scorpi
  4. Thanks Joppe all is well. Winter is our usual down time here. Starting up series shooting in May. Best regards, Jim Rillie
  5. The V3 travel version is a thing of beauty. We are very happy with both our v2 and v3 versions. Hope you are we'll, Joppe. Best regards, Jim Rillie
  6. Only one of my CMITs exhibits this. The others are normal bump at startup. It is the second one I bought.
  7. Use to do that tape and rubber band trick with my old Microns. They had fairly long cable antennas Channel 13 VHF.
  8. iPower 9volts have worked well for us for years when bagging it. The ticking may be caused by other things, like an LED dimmer, or cell phones too close in my experience, anything that radiates RF, but your experience leads to battery.
  9. I'm with Mr Gooch on this, not because I have any experience in Africa, but when working internationally as I have a few times, I would always recommend bringing your own equipment (assuming you have a kit). A Carnet makes international travelling with gear workable. Oftentimes your producer can get a Carnet for sound, and camera in the same document.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Wow, never heard of that one in my experience.
