  1. Cos 11 is one of the easiest mics to hide. it is the diameter what counts, and if i am correct, it's even smaller in diameter than the dpa 4060 or mke2, but it doesn't matter, they are all easy to hide.
  2. Looks like a crimp style BNC with a sleeve over it. In other words, not really meant to be serviceable. most RF shops in town, I guess they even have them in Uruguay will sell them (get the 50 ohm), look into the scanner/walkietalkie section of the "yellow pages" for shops. Farnell, Mouser, or Aliexpress etc etc got you covered if you wanna buy online, both solder ones as crimp ones.
  3. Fair enough. I would say both. I just get the impression topic started assumed they are equal besides the stock lav Vs mke2. That will work. Another benefit of the 500 series is that it is wide band. So if you combine that with the 100 series, you only can receive half of the available Freq. that the 500 can transmit. But it will work.
  4. Go 500 series. the 50mw as I mentioned before will give you better range. that should be the focus first, you get distracted by the microphone into your equation; yes it is important, but transmitter wise the 100/500 series are not equal.
  5. That said, the MKE2 is considerable better than the ME2 which comes with the 100 kit .
  6. The main difference between the 500 series vs the 100, is the fact that the 500 has 50mw TX power, vs the 30 mw max of the 100 series. The MKE2 mic is just a "bonus"deal with the kit.
  7. Hey, I am from Rotterdam 😉 . Like Frido I don't have the band you are using, but the spectrum site linked above indeed shows no problem. One thing to keep in mind if you shoot near the harbour area; sometimes it can be a bit sketchy from time to time, due to some strong (illegal?) high Watt scanners and transmitters from all the international shipping vessels passing by.
  8. Yeah that is because of the added layers, in your case 4G. Not much control over that. In our situation it would be a completely controlled network (own "server", own LAN, own clients), so much more control over those things.
  9. You got a link to that? Can not find it so quickly. I base my code on the openOb project. I forked it and buiding my software around that. It is still in "hobby" status though, but when I got it it somehow functioning, I will update here.
  10. I am actually toying around with some programming, getting a Opus stream (opus codec, significant better in therms of audio quality/bitrate vs something like mp3) to get a low latency stream "into the world". So you need a small "computer" transmitter, this can be any linux device. Think Raspberry pi, a hacked phone running plain linux, etc. set to "broadcast mode". And the receiving end can be anything capable of receiving plain Opus streams, so that's every computer/phone/dedicated hardware out there. It is multicast, so the max connected devices depends on the bandwidth, but since it is Opus, we are talking dozens en dozens IFBs easily. The "codec" latency I can get down to 2x 2.5 ms (if I stream a file), so that's ok I guess, but the ADC converter for live audio input is f*cking me now, adding too much MS in the equation. Working on a macbook, so can not optimise extensively like on a stripped down Linux machine (raspberry pi would be ideal), So when I have a linux thingy, I will continue to fiddle around....
  11. Interesting. But from the spec sheet; "Typical delay 100ms end to end"
  12. The fact that Zaxnet is on the ISM 2.4 band doesn't mean it is "wifi" or "bluetooth" compatible. Thus it doesn't work like that (download an app and be done).

    Zoom F4

    I reckon. Yeah that is basically what i mean to say. i guess a "monochrome" OLED would be fine.

    Zoom F4

    Still can not get over the monochrome screen. I tried it out once on a gig, but i felt self diagnosed dyslexic all of the sudden. Every time I looked down the check the screen on metering or something my brain farted.
  15. I would say it depends on your needs; If you NEED the (software) switchable line/mic inputs, +10dbV line out, running 4S batteries (16.8v charged), you can not find that on a F8, you NEED the f8n. If you can work around that, which is totally doable, the original F8 is all fine.
  16. The broad initial question gives away your current experience, so I would suggest an internship of some kind. 20+ years ago I started in the live PA sound world, and that thought me so much about sound in general. Get's you a basic understanding of what everything does, what it all means etc. The good part of PA sound vs our line of work is it is a bigger industry so internships or working as a helping hand is much easier to get to vs. our smaller industry. From there on it is still a step towards broadcast/film sound and post, but you have a good set of basic knowledge. Yes you can go the "new" route of going complete the "internet-diy-read-a-book" way, but an couple of days with some experienced people will take years on the aforementioned road.
  17. If you in for an adventure; DIY a cable, and use a Neutrik NC3FXCC connector (RF protection on board). See this Instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cheap-and-Easy-Passive-Low-Cut-High-Pass-Inline-Fi/ Maybe it works...
  18. You mean the wiring of the 3.5 mm? If so, no, Sony not so wisely has chosen to flip the 2 points of the TR of TRS, making them "unique" in the audio world. In other words, they isolated themselves. https://wavreport.com/2016/04/18/tutorial-sony-uwp-lav-adapter-cable/
  19. Maybe this, don't know if it is designed for mic signals though with let's say Bias power, although attenuation is nothing fancy; http://www.sescom.com/product.asp?item=SES-MULTI-PAD

    Or 3d print your circuit 😀 https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Printing-3D-Print-A-Solderless-Circuit-Board/

    You can just use a universal board, that's what I mean. and use small coper/metal wire to make bridges. a blob of solder will do the trick too. or get one like the second picture, with joint holes. this is actually a better example of what i used:

    Now I want spaghetti for dinner 😁 I'm joking, good job, I did similar but used a PCB to get rid of the cable mess.
  23. Even rycote calls it a blimp sometimes, so whatever....
  24. 2x heavier as the ambient quick lock system.
