Radio Mic Comparisons….

Hi all!!

For all those production sound mixers/recorders out there, I’m just after some general input/tips into radio mic selection and techniques?

From my experience, most sound mixers I’ve come across like to use the Tram Lavalier or the Sanken Cos-11 lav (the latter favoured due to the smaller capsule being easier to hide). Has anybody any other radio mics they prefer to use for production sound/capturing dialogue?

I’m also curious to hear of people’s radio micing techniques that are used to optimise dialogue recording but minimising the dreaded clothing/rustling noise! It seems like a rather dark art!

Many thanks!

Is it possible to broadcast FM radio up to 500 metres? [on hold]

I’m buying FM transmitter 0.2 watt at Lazada to broadcast for my village community at my area. Not a normal small FM transmitter for car or portable low watt (about 10mW-100mW) which broadcast up to 10 metres.
Is it possible to broadcast up to 500 metres? Because I don’t want to get trouble to broadcast and get caught. I want to broadcast for my community only and play my own music without any ads (like what commercial radio does).
P.S. I’m from Malaysia and planned to broadcast up to 500 metres. Not long range like what commercial radio and government radio does.

Radio Activated On Off Switch

TL;DR : I want to know if there is any product on the market, That on which when radio frequency falls, and it turns on an LED. Basically an on off switch but controlled when radio waves hit it.

What I hope to achieve is that, i want to have a remote of sorts, And when i press a button, the LED turns on. Without having line of sight.
Why? Because me and my dog play fetch at night, (Dont ask why I have many reasons to if i could at day i wouldve but cant 😀 ) and i almost always loose the ball every night into the bushes and its too scary to look for it. Have lost many balls and its become annoying and expensive to loose balls every night (Im a student)

What I have in mind is the idea that i could press a button and it transmits radio frequency and when it hits the ball the led turns on so i can see it.

I know arduino could do it found blinking codes for it too but i cant fit it into a ball and even if i did my dog would crush it in his mouth, (and also i dont know much about coding so id best avoid it 😀 ) so ideally am looking for something really small and simple that would be inside the ball so if even he bites it theres a good chance he wont crush it.

What i want to know is, is there anything that is available like what i described? A switch that when RF falls on it it lets current pass through it like a switch allowing the led to turn on bright so i can find it? does anything like that even exist? I can find voice activated clap sound light heat temp IR everything activated switches but not this.

If I disable the 5GHz radio on my router will it improve my 2.4GHz performance or range? [on hold]

I am having an ASUS RT-AC53 dual-band router having 3 antennas.
Currently, it is emitting both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wifi radios.
I am just curious if I disable the 5GHz radio will it anyway improve the performance or signal range or availability of the 2.4GHz signal?
Is there any possibility for the antenna which is getting used for emitting the 5GHz signal, will instead be used for 2.4GHz?
