    Needing help with the Neumann kmr 81i switches

    The two switches on the KMR82 are off when pushed down toward the XLR end and on when pushed up. I've had one for decades and it sounds as good today as when I bought it.

    Wireless mic use in Iceland ?

    Thank you Paul and Olle your help is greatly appreciated.
  5. I've been booked to work on a Doc in Iceland in early July and after a week of research I haven't found any info on available wireless mic frequencies or rules there . If anyone has shot there or has any info about what frequencies are available I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Bob S.

    Your first sound setup or kit ever

    My first equipment investment in 1984 was a Nagra 4.2 and a Schoeps CMC 4/MK41 everything else I needed to work was either rented or borrowed.

    Lectrosonics Sra weak reception

    A couple of years ago, I picked up a second hand SRa from a cameraman who had the same complaints about the SRa as you have. I just thought that he wasn't using it right until I started using it and had the same problems. After trying everything I could think of to figure out what the problem was, I took the case off to check out the insides and found that the antenna connections had never been soldered to the circuit board. Two minutes with a soldering iron and the SRa worked like a champ with range almost as good as my 411s.

    Cell phone patch for on camera interview

    I have done this many times and what works best is to put the cellphone on speaker and place it just out of frame. That way both people can hear each other and you can record both sides of the interview without jumping thru too many hoops. Bob S.

    Accepting payment in bitcoin?

    Bitcoins remind me of the junk bond craze of the late '80s, and we all know what happened to them. Bob

    Opinions regarding Classifieds vs. WTB - WTS

    +1 for the WTB/WTS it's a much friendlier place than the "classifieds" section. Bob

    Using Lectrosonics SRa and SMa transmitters for camera hop.

    I use that same set up when I use a camera hop and I have no trouble getting good levels without overloading the SMa transmitters. Is your cable wired for servo bias inputs, is it wired for line level? Check your cables, my guess is that is the source of the problem. Bob S.
