  1. Rehashing an old thread 7+ years later haha. As a beginner woodworker, I too decided to build my own set and jumped right in before I knew what I was doing. I bought a 4x8 sheet of 1/2" birch plywood from the local big box store(the most expensive 1/2" plywood they had) and made all my cuts before I realized the difference between birch plywood and baltic birch plywood. I realized my "birch" plywood was mostly poplar. While it's very lightweight, it's just not as durable or stiff as baltic birch. Well since I made it this far, I'm not turning back. I ended up getting some oil-based enamel pain
  2. Time to sell the Tascam DR-40..
  3. Replacement antennas run around $6 here in the states. https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/530295-sennheiser-575297-antenna-486-558-mhz-for-g2-and-g3 If you can source one for cheap, might be worth replacing it yourself if you have a soldering iron and some torx bits.
  4. They might seem to work fine, but if you ever get an rf hit with these units(and you will) the antenna length will be the first thing on your mind.
  5. I got a couple of these from Trew at the end of May and they work great. I would have preferred they kept the hirose connector only because I already have P-tap to hirose cables so I could just power/charge from the camera rig battery.
  6. From page 39 in the user manual: Direct outputs 1-6 may be used as line inputs 7-12, in which case the functionality of the PFL switches on the 664 changes. This is called 12-Channel mode. L Simultaneous PFL of multiple inputs is disabled in 12-Channel mode. Also, when switching to 12-Channel mode, meter views are not automatically changed, so inputs 7-12 may not be visible. For more information, see Meter Views. To enable 12-Channel mode: 1. Press the MENU button. 2. Turn and press the Headphone encoder to select INPUTS > Input Mode > 12 Channel. L The INPUTS
  7. I use a travel toothbrush holder for mine. Bits of foam in the ends make it a perfect fit.
  8. The American jobs that have been created have FAR outweighed any that have left. Can't argue against the numbers.
  9. You probably have the Sennheiser SKP 100, which does not supply phantom power. The 300 does.
  10. The Sennheiser SKP 300 G3 has 48v phantom power.

  12. A 1/4 wavelength whip antenna would be a hair under 3 inches long.
