New 6500 owner here. I'm trying to setup my old Heil ProSet 4 (HC-4 element) and was wondering if anyone using one could post their EQ settings. I saw that someone had asked this question before but it never got any responses.
If it matters, I normally only use this mic for contesting. Thanks in advance.
EQ settings are based on the sonic characteristics of your particular voice and the microphone used. The EQ setting for one person will not be optimal for anyone else.
There is only one way to set an EQ and that is to use one of the transmit profiles as a starting point, using the recommendations found in the HelpDesk article Rules for EQing Voice for Optimal Phone Operation, making small changes to the EQ and listening to yourself while transmitting (preferably in a 2nd receiver with a wide filter or by using the monitor technique using the record and playback feature described in the SmartSDR Software User's Guide). Or better yet, setup a QSO with another FLEX owner and have them record you off the air and play it back so you can hear yourself.
Sorry... just realized your using the HC4, not sure this will apply
Tim, I have a PR781 and rack of audio gear in-line with the Flex for normal rag chewing. I was just looking for settings for this headset for contesting purposes. Thanks.
Not to bring up an old post but ..... I have a 6700 and am trying to get a ProSet Plus headset with the HC4 (or HC5 - I prefer the 4 when used on my Yaesu 5000) and am not having any luck getting decent audio. It sounds like RF/hum is getting in but I'm running all of 2 W into a dummy load (or antenna - no difference in results) and everything is well grounded with very short heavy grounds ... the adapter is a Heil AD-1-Y which I see have comments on the web about missing wiring - something about pin 5 to 7 and/or the shell?
Also - do I need to turn on 'bias' for this element (I think not but I've tried most everything else to no avail)?
I have to adjust it to 100% mic to get something that is still not close to full 0 scale on the VU meter ... and then the hum is loud but the signal is not much above it.
I suspect some will say its the 8 pin foster connector - DXE shows this IS the right adapter to be used with this radio and this headset! HOWEVER if I plug it, the 3.5mm mic plug, directly in to the Maestro I get the same results which would suggest it isn't the foster connector...
when I move the mic gain knob on the Maestro I get this musical chimes in the headset - random - irratic but kind of a chirp as I turn the knob... note further I ran it with the Maestro completely disconnected using SSDR - no difference.
I bought the radio used - I'm wondering if it is defective for SSB.
