  1. sorry to resume this conversation after many weeks, do you think this can accomplish the goal? to put an sma connector on sennheisers ?https://it.aliexpress.com/item/5pcs-SMA-Connector-Cable-Female-to-uFL-u-FL-IPX-IPEX-RF-Or-NO-Connector-Coax/32909354468.html?spm=a2g0y.10010108.1000016.1.35a339ebSPmqgI&isOrigTitle=true
  2. I have a question about length, I have several Sennheiser g series, all in b range and the antenna length is 11 cm ( 4,33 inches), since the range is 626 - 661, considering the formula 300,000/ freq/4 is around 11 cm all seems to be coherent, if considering this document https://www.lectrosonics.com/US/phocadownload/ammkit_td.pdf in the same frequency range the length is quite shorter. lectros seems to be shorter then sennheisers.
  3. QUANT WHAT IS THIS connector, has it been crimped?
  4. what sma connectors have you used, there are many quality and prices around, sold online from China like 3 $ for 10 pieces and there also pieces of 5 $ for each.
  5. I own a Sennheiser skp500 g2, actually it is being repaired since 48 v phantom is not working, and I am considering an upgrade with it, my question is, does make sense an upgrade to a skp 2000 ( to get also a 100 mW ) considering that I have already a tx/rx 2000 system? I would buy the plug on in the same frequency range to use with the receiver I already have, the other option is to forget the Sennheiser and sell the actual senheiser plug on and go on a used lectro like uh 400 to use with some ucr 411 that I have also.
  6. I am aware of the sacrilegious question, but we dont have other choise, we need to shoot in an operating room, and no other person but the video operator is allowed, no equipment place here and there, only on man with dslr on a jimbal. we need to capture a decent dialogue of doctors operating a 2 meters. any suggestion for a good mic for a dslr.?
  7. I have traveled to Beirut from Naples, we toke 4 flights for the round trip, everything was smooth probably because at our destination we found UN officers (we were shooting for them) and military police waiting for us and helping us to arrange all the visas procedures when arriving and leaving. the only eye control we had was in Rome on the hand luggage and they checked the lithium batteries, I can say that I had one 95Wh, one 160 Wh, 1 phone power bank, some AA batteries and a sound devices 664 in the hand luggage and passed through, all the rest: petrol bag, harness, leatherman, cables, wireless mic, boom, windshields, and accessories was in a pelicase checked in. the only issue was about the air company that stole us 230€ to take on board an extra small baggage.
  8. we had the proper cable bought from the production, lucky us.
  9. we have 2 sd 668 -664 to sync to each other and both have both a lemo - bnc cable, do you think if joining them via a BNC/BNC female adapter, it going to work?
  10. Pat there is a none issue for gear described, for the 65 wh battery no problem at all. The regulation described on any company website states that over the 160 wh are not allowed but none I know many people that have totally been ignored with 180 wh batteries. 2) when you travel with your personal used gear why you should get through the custom. I have traveled fro EU to us in the past with gear, with no issue at all, have ordered some mic at BH photo and had it delivered from a friend traveling and not a problem also
  11. eric this is a your answer given in another discussion, and is more clear to me. since i am going from the x1-x2 on sound devices 664/688 "From what connection on the 788 to Lectro TX line in? If the output on the 788 is a balanced connection then it's pin 1 to pin one for the ground. Pin 2 on the the TA3 to pin 5 on the TA5 for line in. Pin 3 on the TA3 goes to pin 3 on the TA5 for line level. Eric"
  12. you mean the 7 one? https://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/Microphone-Wiring/uhf-transmitter-5-pin-input-jack-wiring.html ? pin 1 and 3 are jumped together also. what confuses me is that the wiring, in any case, doesn't seem to be balanced. pin 2 (hot ) goes on 5 and pin 3 (cold) goes always jumped to the ground (pin 1) so at end we have a sort of 2 wire connections, like the sennheisers evolutions.
  13. as i found on another discussion, this picture is the way to go?
