  1. Here ya go: JJ CARE Faraday Fabric 44"x39”, Upgraded Faraday Cloth with Free 1"x24" Faraday Tape https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0855KQ36Z/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_98SQF53AXQG2AXG1TRDT?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  2. Larry Fisher is the ultimate RF guru. He's helped me many times through this site and otherwise. Yes, the 744 is a notorious RF sprayer, something to do with the spinning harddrive?
  3. Yes, it's the amps and volts I'm concerned about. Admittedly, I am not well-versed when it comes to electronics power specs. I got the Coga sound quickdraw (24V/3A), which I highly recommend. It acts as a great little distro for the Hi-Q batteries and it's powered everything I've plugged into it including a Speakeasy speaker, but not the Roger base station. The base station itself says 5v / .5A but the specs in the manual say the AC adapter outputs 5.3VDC @ 4amps so I'm kind of lost there. I was therefore looking at this https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1478529-REG/omnicharge_op2ha004_omni_20_powerbank_portable.html hoping it would work, at least just for the base station if not for the amplifier as well.
  4. Tony if you don't mind, I'd love a link to your battery pack and any special power cables you're using.
  5. Tanks Tony. Is this the amp you're talking about? https://www.amazon.com/Sunhans-Sh-2500-Wireless-Repeater-Booster/dp/B00HJ1NQLS/ref=asc_df_B00HJ1NQLS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312780390407&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10438628374804762862&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1023414&hvtargid=pla-404289817190&psc=1
  6. I'm about to work with one of these systems. I've been made aware of many of the pitfalls here and have a little limited experience myself. Does the Base Station require line level or will a level straight from an SM58 be enough? Can the included SMA antenna be screwed off or is it part of the chassis? I wanted to try replacing it with something like this. I've heard of people putting amps in-line but I'm not sure exactly which and what that entails. Thanks, Ben
  7. I used to use the ua874's and never had issues until I was outside in the rain. I only used them when remoting over long distances. I kept them dry but was having really bad RF/electrical noise when we would move them during the take to keep up with talent. My boom op at the time said that the Shures should really be thought of as installation antennas for live sound. This was of course well before the new Shure Axient system and I'm sure their new gear is more robust for production sound. Also, this was not a scientific test of any kind. However, I switched to the Lectro ALP690s and have not had the issue again. Just 2 cents.
  8. Thanks for the suggestions. For now, I'm going to try this https://www.amazon.com/Stage-MSA5000-Stand-Laptop-Mount/dp/B00V3A619U
  9. I'm looking for a plate that's just big enough to handle a 13" macbook pro. No arm, and not big. Can't seem to find anything that suits my needs yet.
  10. Eas Easy enough to pull them out and put them back for battery changes?
  11. Well put. I'm still sore from them refusing the address the last few bugs on the 6 series. I just live with them. The CL-wifi (and how they basically let it die) is a great example of why I'm staying away from their app-reliant products. The fact that the new transmitter requires an app to be configured is mind-boggling to me.
  12. I'm not a fan of how much you have to rely on phone/tablet devices and their apps to configure these.
  13. Anyone know if it records and transmits at the same time?
