As the Sotabeams speech compressor is out of stock with no date as to when it will be stocked again, does anyone have any suggestions as to a replacement?
You have pm
Hi Bryn @G4ZHI
You can have a loan of mine to try out. Call around.
Or this one if you also want a voice keyer.
That’s rather cute… I think I’ll have to order one of those.
Thanks for that Pom
That one (DG7ACF) looks very similar to the voice keyer kit that SotaBeams also sell.
I’ve got one I’m happy to sell - my modified microphone is enough for me.
A very good recommendation
If you have problems with RF on the mike, there is a simple solution. Ground the shield of the internal Mike cable with 10nF. If you prefer a nice crisp modulation, put a capacitor of about 470pF between the wiper and the hot spot of the internal audio gain potentiometer.
This brings a significant improvement in syllable understanding.
Here is the audio comparison of the modified speech memory and the out of the box MH31 mike. Only audio, black video.
Thanks Alan. I’ll email you separately.
Thanks. I may have found one but if not I’ll let you know.
Thanks everyone for all the ideas and suggestions. Some good thoughts there to mull through.
Speech compressor (now v3) and voice keyer are available again. The links stay the same.
Definitely recommendable! Ahoi Pom,
They will ship to Bouvet Island but not United Kingdom
Time to start plannings for another DXpedition! Maybe you find somebody to join your order and so shipping and collecting cost would be split.
I use this RF Speech Clipper, works fine.
