Re: Sennheiser lavaliere interruption

"However, I've noticed that over time the aerials are no longer 'straight'. They've developed their own curved shape."
- A 'bent' antenna is not a big problem, unless it is actually broken, which would be obvious. It's typical for the these kind of antennas to get a little misshaped.
If it really bothers you, the replacement antenna part is relativity cheap, and can be installed in about 10 minutes.... by someone with electronic/soldering skills)

Re: Sennheiser lavaliere interruption

Thanks.

While I do have the electronics / soldering skills required, if the antenna being slightly warped is not having any effect then I'm a firm believer in "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Re: Sennheiser lavaliere interruption

Plastic drinking straws from take away food outlets work well to keep the antenna straight in storage / and with a little bit of tape will keep them off a sweaty body while in use. (just find a color to suit)
Cheap, easy to get, just cut to any length and disposable.

Wow, great suggestion that would probably never have occurred to me. Thanks!

Re: Sennheiser lavaliere interruption

Sorry to hijack

But I have the G3 wireless and how do you keep the backlight on?

I need to have the black light on longer than the 20 seconds when it starts to dim?

Thanks

Please advise

"I need to have the black light on longer than the 20 seconds when it starts to dim?"
-You could push one of the up/down or menu buttons again, which should reset the light's timer for another 20 sec., or whatever the (factory set) duration is
AFAIK, the duration is not user adjustable... at least on the G2/3 SK100 Body pack transmitter and EK100 portable receiver.

My question would be - why?

The backlight going off is to: A) to prevent an annoying glow from the equipment during a performance and B) to maximise battery life.

The 20 odd seconds is normally more than enough to make adjustments and is from the last button press.
