Hi Charles, Yes I had a similar situation with a person who seemed to
suck up RF as you call it. Some years ago i was doing a corporate
where we had to do each scene in two languages (english and french).
We had an English speaker and a French speaker, short walk and talk,
same setup, identical RFs (I forget what units, might have been Sonys.
This was a few years ago). the English guy's take worked fine,
switched actors, French actor: dropout city. Tried moving the TX
around still variable results. No cell phones involved. When I lifted
the TX away from his body, reception was fine. Much jollity ensued
about having the "Francais filter" on. I wasn't amused. The Anglo guy
was fairly slim, the Franco more, shall I say, robust. a bit sweaty
under the lights. Eventually place the TX in his front suit pocket and
we made it through (couldn't boom it by the way because of the shot).
I remember reading somewhere on this group about the eloctrolyte
factor in RF transmission. Sweat?
Cheers, Chris Newton
Another reason why I love this group!
For the record, the problem with my one wireless was with a guy who was 6'5"
and built line a semi-pro linebacker.
Same model number on his girlfriend, no problem.
