Messy wiring

RFI Choke

There are many solutions for reduce/cut Mr. Ruffy (RFI) from enter to the transceiver..at the first step, i just make turn & put Toroid Snap at the turn to make RF/humming choke..& the result i got, RFI no more coming into my rig..so, i apply same method to each connections..below are the solution can be use for RFI/humming problem :

1. add Mix #31 Ferrite cores to the Microphone cable at each end, and in the middle..

2. mic cable is wired in a Balanced configuration..

3. change the microphone cable to a good quality cable like Canare or Mogami Starquad.. Whatever brand, be sure to get the Starquad..

4. shorten the mic cable to the minimum length necessary..

5. add a .001uf cap from the #2 Pin to #1 Pin, and a .001uf cap from the #3 pin to the #1 in the XLR connectors of the mic cable for RFI bypass..

Today, add new 'toy' in my shack..Behringer Shark DSP110 is a last choice to do 'touch-up' on my audio..this 'Shark' can do a lots of function like Down expander, Noise Gate, Feedback Destroy, Compressor, Filter etc..you can click here for more information about this 'Shark'..Honestly, i would to say 'yes' for this 'junk' because with this small physical, it's can do the great job plus also have 'Learn function' how to use this item..It's will automatic setting for you like Noise Gate, Low-cut & Filter by using 'Learn button'..Below is some record for the audio after put DSP110..

Shure SM58 Beta - Supercardiod Dynamic mic

Audio Technica AT2035 - Studio Condenser mic

Click here for details

I have experience using two (2) types of microphone, Dynamic mic & Condenser mic..both have their own performance & ability which is depends on what type of mode or situation..for me, very simple explanations, Dynamic mic just plug & play straight away use & no need power plus a little bit cheap compare Condenser mic need Phantom power (11-52V DC) to switch on the condenser plus slightly high the price..this power come from mixer or preamp which is have Phantom power support..but the performance on Condenser mic much better with nice audio & sensitive..but don't ever under estimate with cheap mic, if use very good set up equipment like preamp, EQ, DSP etc..the cheap mic can be action like expensive mic..i have used Dynamic mic about one (1) year & make me satisfied on their performance..right now, i move to use Condenser mic are to see the performance & report from far stations, how they copy my audio..hope the nice audio report from you soon..

p/s : will upload here the recording audio soon..
