Hello. I was recently informed by a highly respected professional that connecting my Wisycom MTB plug-on transmitter to a short XLR cable connected to my boom microphone violates the antenna design commonly used in most plug-on transmitter.
"First, I should state that this is the incorrect use of *ANY* plug-on device; no matter what the manufacturer. Plug-on transmitters employ dipole antennas where one of the antennas are in the transmitter itself, and the other is the microphone attached to the plug-on. Using an XLR cable between the two breaks the connection and so you have “half a dipole antenna”; you will not have great RF coverage."
I am interested in this group's perspective on topic this as I see this as a common practice.
