    Issue with Lectro SRC in Block 941

    Wow, that is quite a unique set of gremlins there. Hope Lectro can solve it ASAP.

    Store recommendation Italy

    Did you try Nagrit in Rome. I'm sure they would ship to anywhere in Italy.

    Better Bolts for the HN 7506

    The nut in the picture looks like a nylock nut. It has that roundish dome. Maybe it just lost its grip or something.

    Halter Technical introduces the Scene Monitor!

    Yes, it works as do any stereo headphones with Comteks, but my question regards the left and right ear being out of phase with each other.

    Halter Technical introduces the Scene Monitor!

    Sounds like a great deal. Are these headphones compatible with Comtek PR-216 - meaning are they stereo or do they send comtek signal in mono (not in phase one ear and out of phase other ear) which conventional stereo headphones do? That would eliminate the need for a mono-to-stereo adapter in order to get a true mono signal.

    Keeping current and abreast of new techniques

    I agree with Dan.That’s what I always heard when asking my mentors about the origin of MOS.

    LT/LR vs SRc

    Sorry, rant on If you have all those extras going on the camera, why on earth would you want to add two receivers (or a dual channel receiver) as well? Wouldn't it be more efficient to hire a professional to handle sound? Chances are you will get much more usable sound that way rather than playing around with added technology you don't seem to have a clue about. Isn't video transmission, follow focus, operating the camera and framing, composing and exposing correctly etc etc consuming your skills and time? You do realize, that this is a professional sound persons forum...

    Adding waterproof pot to system

    Maybe the Demerbox guys could come up with something?

    I would think yes to your last question, Jay.

    Rechargeable battery management on location

    Exactly what we have been doing since we started with rechargeables. Interesting how many of us come up independently with the same solutions.

    How can boom ops be more diplomatic?

    Good advice, David. This our method as well.

    Survey: Wireless receivers integration in the Cantar family.

    I replied to the survey, and suggested Lectro for consideration, since many of us all over the world are using Lectro. And yes, the dual receivers are the ones that make sense for this concept.

    Why Comteks?

    What is a block lithium 9 volt? I have been using iPower 9v lithium batteries for years in all my Comtek 216s, both M216s and PR 216s. They work well and last for an acceptably long time on a charge.
  22. Greetings , I want to use a couple of my unused SNA antennas to transmit from Comtek BST 75-216 transmitters. If I extend the length of the arms from maximum length to a 1/4 wave or 1/2 wave of 216MHZ wavelength, this should work? I don't have formula, but can extrapolate from existing antennas I have. Is there a work around for this, or is there a shop out there who could do this? AND... The answer is: REMOTE AUDIO MIRACLE WHIP MW216 KIT Best regards, Jim Rillie PSM

    IFB on the cheap.

    don't bother, said the curmudgeon. Use what works - Comteks or IFBs. Why stress over stuff that can be more expensive the long run in time and energy, when we already have equipment that works reliably.

    IDK, Interesting idea, but some clients don't know the difference... They might use it
