  1. I still use a 788T also but I definitely don't have those skills. That's really great!
  2. I'm sorry that such a small market is divisive instead of supportive, but I guess I kind of understand. I'm also in a relatively busy but small market. I hope it gets bigger and better and you get more sweet features.
  3. Maybe this won't make any sense, but someone invent "coily cable coax" so it can all be contained in the antenna mast, like in a boom pole. ...and I LOVED Paint Your Wagon, not sure how many times I stayed up to watch it on late night TV as a kid.
  4. Hi, I just saw this and wanted to say hello. Im in North Carolina but grew up in Norman. My parents are still there so I go back a lot. How's work in OK?
  5. JonG keep us posted on your results with the new 6 pack. I also just bought one but I haven't decided what blocks to put in it or what antennas to use. I have been quite frustrated this week with wireless. I was shooting this week at a house where there was RF noise through all of my block 21 and 24 and most of my block 22. Sharkfins as opposed to dipoles helped on the block 22 (21 and 22 in a venue) but the others were unusable. I am about to buy 3 new SR somethings for the 6 pack and don't want to make choices that will continue to be frustrating. I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to antenna distribution and characteristics and am trying to learn more.
  6. I saw this on one of the sound Facebook groups.
  7. I will put in the female two cents: I'm sure it isn't intentionally sexist and I would certainly (and have not) let air conditioning keep me from working in the studio, but I do believe that many women do feel temperature differently than men. That said, I have worked in some production settings that were kept so cold that even the thought of going to work in them made me depressed.
  8. Well, I'm not even a man and that was worth my three minutes.
  9. IronFilm, no waterproof transmitters. We were cabled at the pool and I believe used a regular transmitter up high in a condom in the river.
  10. Every feature I do we say we will bring the 70 out once. So far it's usually been over water. The last couple of time were over a swimming pool and once with the boom operator standing in the middle of a river.
  11. I figure I ought to add to the collective wiring knowledge by reporting back on how the day went. I talked to the costume designer first thing this morning with AD backup and had no luck getting an undershirt so i tried a black coban wrap under the tight dark blue t shirt: One wrap around then a cos 11 in an overcover covered with one more wrap with just the end sticking out. We had 30 mile an hour winds on a walk and talk next to the water and the wire sounded great, didn't show, and the hairy very active (and cold) talent was happy not to worry about tape coming loose. We will do it again tomorrow on the beach.
  12. You are right of course. She has not been a team player so far, it might be time to involve someone higher up.
