Cell phone remotes
Tech Tips, June 2010
Mike Jax of WYPW, Mishawaka, IN, sent a picture of this home-brew interface for remote call-ins. Quite often, a cell phone is all that is needed for a live drop-in. But talking into a phone has limitations, and if someone is interviewed, it looks very strange to push the phone in someone's face. Jax's contract engineer created this interface that splits the mini jack from the phone into an XLR connector for a mic and a headphone jack.
Adding a short XLR extension allows Jax to keep the phone on his belt while he uses the mic. The added benefit is that it looks more professional to observers at the remote site.
