Noise of the wires of the mic on the interviewer.Avoid?

Hola,
here it s my set of microphone : ew 122-p g2 (ek100g2;sk100g2;Me4;Cl1 Cl100).
Now i'd like to receive suggestions on how to avoid the noise of an interviewer when he moves himselfes and touches the wire of Me4 mic....I heard somedody that there are few filters out there for the wind and the solution to avoid those kind of noise is to use tape. How?

The first fix is prevention. Have you used a "broadcast loop" strain relief when pinning the mic on the talent?

Thanks for the post Warren, good illustration. To clarify a little since it doesn't quite show the whole thing, you first make a 180 degree loop in the wire coming out of the base of the mic capsule and thread it up through the hinge area of the tieclip holder as you see in that illustration. Then another 180 turn so the wire is going down behind the fabric with the downward part caught between clip and the cloth at the same end of the clip as the mic capsule but on the opposite side of the cloth from it.

There are other ways to form a loose loop about an inch or so in diameter in the cable about 1/2 inch from the mic capsule by tieing loosely with thread or a bit of tape if you're using something other than the classic tie-clip mount for the lav. And you can get mounts that have little clips for the wire to make it a little less fiddly to get the loop just right. The important thing is to have something so that casual movement and tugs on the cable doesn't get tranmitted to the mic capsule.
