  1. I´ve got the 201 block 24 for a long time and it never let me down and it´s my trusty old friend. (But when I have some extra cash I upgrade) I am using the Betagear Stuff for nearly one year. The antenna distribution looks same the the PSC one and is well build and I costs around 350€. The sharks (90€ for two!) are a little bit taller than the usual suspects but working great. They look very similar to the shure UA874 besides the paddle is different. With the antenna distribution and the sharks I have a really great range and no dropouts. When I ordered them I was sceptical, but I was to courious too! There´s a lot of crap on Alix Express, but a few things are great. Also great art the Leicozic Receivers for the clients. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32750422632.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.5e5d42a6WqzFzQ&algo_pvid=631508f9-2007-42d8-9932-81b74afcd8c2&algo_expid=631508f9-2007-42d8-9932-81b74afcd8c2-14&btsid=0b0a187915821902379692581ebf01&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_ Well build and sounding good for 50€. I use the together with my Sennheiser SK300 (SNA antenna modified) I also can recommend al kind of cables and SNA antennes there. The prizes are good. I buying pro stuff and I am willing to spend money. But cables and antennas are definitifly way too expensive. My VMOUNT is the AXCOM U-SVLO-99-UD. It´s half the size of fat one. Two of these power the whole bag for one day. I decided for V-Mount because normally the camera department has them too. For emergency situations I can use their chargers or their batteries.
  2. Hi Folks. This is my bag mainly for commercials, documentary and interviews. But I also done a TV series on a cart and with sharks. 1 x Sound Devices 633 2 x Wisycom MCR 42S 1 x Lectrosonics UCR 201 for Boom (modified with SNA connectors for external antennas) 2 x Lectrosonics SNA600 (just stuck inside the spaces of the bag. I tried different things, but this is the easiest way and it´s fast removable) 1 x Powerdistribution from www.ops-shop.de 1 x Betagear Antenna Distribution (it´s from Ali Express and works fine with the Betagear Shark antennas! ) 1 x Sennheiser SK300 G3 for boom op or customers 1 x Lectrosonics UM110 for camera feed 1 x VMount battery 1 x Orca Bags OR-30
  3. Which model is the Condor Bag?
  4. That´s a good point. When I have my harness on, I don´t want to take it down when not nescessary.
  5. ORCA Bags now has the OR-444 ORCA 3S (SPINAL SUPPORT SYSTEM) SOUND HARNESS. Until now, there was only one similiar concept by K-Tek the KSHRN3. I am looking forward for a new harness that helps my back and shoulders. I really like the concept of being modular and using just parts of the harness for quick situations. Does someone already tried or is using it? Maybe compared to the K-Tek?
  6. If you are using a Orca Bag this maybe would something for you. Haven´t tried it. https://www.orcabags.com/product/orca-sound-bags-aluminum-antenna-holder/
  7. Here is my attempt for mounting two SNA600s in my ORCA OR-30 bag. For me it´s important to keep my bag as light as possible (it´s heavy enough) so I unmounted the black heavy blocks from the antenna and put some 3M dual lock on it and attached it to a hardplastic piece from the hardware store. For prevent the plastic to move around some normal velcro is attached on the upside. When the sides are closed it locks the holders in position.

  9. I ordered this one yesterday https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32815090009.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.74b84c4dn17iPn in the 572-603.5MHZ range. Try to look around. They use different brand names for the same article.
  10. ok. But where do you insert the capacitator? Under the BNC socket?
  11. I´m using the the MCR41s and the newest linear MTP41s. My mics are standart ones which worked great and without any problems with my lectro SMAs. Those SMAs were hard to overdrive.
  12. Funny. I also have the problem that the bag is too thick and ordered a few days ago the thin replacement pouch. The bag is really small, but way to thick!
  13. Hi. I know the difference between the old 600 and the new 600a model is, that the 600a can be used with an active distribution. But what happens when I use the old model 600 with an active distribution? Does the reception suffers or can it be damaged somehow?
  14. I uploaded the audio file which I find is partially distorted. Metering was as mentioned in the middle or slightly above, but with no peaks. Wisycom_Dist_Audio.mp3
  15. yes, I can, next week after my holiday.
  16. I use the 633 and tried different things. Turned the input to mic and line, turned down the levels from the receivers. But the distortion occurs in the TX unfortunately. Are your DPA and MKE1 2 wire or 2 wire + bias?
  17. I got a set from the rental to check if my has a problem or not. Both work the same. So I have to get used to the WISYCOM gain structure and I must be carefull with the metering. I think it is not accurate. When I use my ears for gainstaging everything is fine. Just visually it don´t look like I am used to metering. The Wisycoms are quit different from Lectro and there is a learning curve to understand their system. From handling the Lectro make more sense, but I thing after a while I get used to Italian style 🙂
  18. I had my Lectro mics rewired for Lemo Wisycom. The receiver is fine. It is set to maximum +16dbu(recommended by the seller). I also tried to lower the gain, to see if my input stage distorts. Even at 00dbu the signal sounds distorted, when it gets louder. Yes, I saw this in the manual and read also that for 2 wires + bias (this is my configuration) 6dbu peak is max. But does that mean, I am not allowed to use the metering on the devices? That would be strange.....
  19. Hi. I've got my new Wisycom system. I am confused about the gain setting. Even if the bar is in the middle I've got some distortion on my VT 506, MKE2 and B6 when the voice gets louder. Before Wisycom I've used Lectrosonics without any problems even at higher gains. Does someone have an advice or using the same mics and can recommend a gain setting?
  20. Ok. I see. The methods in the US are different from here in Germany. But thanks!
  21. Thanks Karri and Nathan! That helps!
  22. Hi, normally as a freelance sound recordist with own equipment I calculate my working time from door to door. (From home. Not from the hotel) Today I had the case, that I am not allowed to do this and my start time for me is as on the call sheet and the end is when wrapped. I am working in Germany. How do you handle this? And how do you argument that working time starts with loading equipment? And another point is, do you calculate a safety buffer (e.g. traffic jams etc...)?
  23. Hi. I am switching from Lectrosonics (TA5) to Wisycom (Lemo 3 Pin) and want to wire my mics by myself. But unfortunately can´t find informations about some models like Sennheiser MKE-2 Tram TR-50 Maybe someone can help me? Thx
  24. I found this on Ali Express - Leicozic 8 channels Signal Amplifier Antenna distributor system https://de.aliexpress.com/item/Leicozic-8-channels-Signal-Amplifier-Antenna-distributor-system-Antenna-Amplifier-for-Recording-Interview-Wireless-Microphone/32961947715.html?spm=a2g0x.10010108.1000016.1.cc65b395S39AwS&isOrigTitle=true What do you think about this system?
