  1. This opinion about left and right hand wind helical is just an opinion, and not one held by all experts in my experience. PWS recommends both antennas to have the same wind for a diversity pair
  2. My Audioroot Neo 96s charge OK in The Purple Aaton charger. People generally recommend only 1 large battery at a time in this charger, BTW.
  3. At first I found the Audioroot Neos a bit quirky even in my audio root chargers, but they have settled down and charge well in my audio root chargers. now. I think they are still hesitant in my Aaton purple chargers, even when only loading one. Will check again when back to work Monday.
  4. Reviving my older ASC Dakota cart with Festol drawers.
  5. We haven’t had issues with theDSQD in 4 ch mode. I used it last year. This year my son has it, working well. I am using 2 822s in its place on my project and they work well too after the firmware update to solve crackling DPR signals.
  6. The old ground-lift trick!
  7. Mine is on the the messy side, but has every charger I need. The bagged ones unpacked are for v-lock batteries not used as often. Set up for transport at the moment until we start production in a week and a bit. A 1510 case plus the power supplies etc., is heavy, but the wheels help.
  8. Having owned both I must agree. But wow, the AMI 48 was the ultimate in cool, not much headroom, though.
  9. I wish it was always that simple!
  10. That’s what I understand.
  11. I did a series last year where the DP wanted to shoot at true 24FPS because of worries concerning potential LED flicker. Post wanted to work at 23.976. Julian Daboll at Technicolor is the guy I like to talk to regarding these issues. The solution decided on for sound is 24/48.048 on the recorder , then they pull down later to 23.976 and 48K. Time code on the recorder, slates, and sync boxes was 24fps It just depends on what they will do post at. If they will continue at a true 24, then we would have done 24/48 on sound.
  12. I just started using it tomorrow
  13. 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) .
  14. 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 Scorpio - try before you buy.
  15. Thanks Joppe all is well. Winter is our usual down time here. Starting up series shooting in May. Best regards, Jim Rillie
  16. 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
  17. Only one of my CMITs exhibits this. The others are normal bump at startup. It is the second one I bought.
  18. Use to do that tape and rubber band trick with my old Microns. They had fairly long cable antennas Channel 13 VHF.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
