interference problems?

6 posts in this topic

Was fishing the other day in my permanant and we had 3 depth finders going. 2 vexs(fl-8) and a older zercom and the two vexs seemed to interfere with one another. Tried pushing the IR quite a few times and helped some what but still wasnt the best at times. The one seemed to be worse than the other. Turned it off and the other was fine. Just a freak thing??

Was in 20-22 ft. I thought they were just suppose to interfere with other makes?

No, any unit that runs off the same freqency will interfere. In deeper water, water over 10-15 feet, the signal from the units begin to spread out. They form an irregular shaped cone down the hole. When the cones touch each other, you get the interference. The IR works most of the time. If your in a perm house depending on how many holes you have, try to get the units as far apart as possible.

It states in the FL-8SLT manual that when useing two SLT's together it is best to turn off the IR completly on one unit, and then adjust the other unit until both units have a satisfactory intference level.

Yep, PCG, that's as good as it will get, but there still will be some interference. It never cancels out the other unit perfectly. One thing I've noticed as that the lower the gain, the less the interference shows up. That can be a handicap in deep water, where you need the gain turned up a bit to see your lure.

You don't have to be very far apart, however, before the interference problem goes away. Bunch of us were fishing together (three Vexes), and if I was even 30 feet away, I had little or no interference. It's when you're in the same house or that close together outside that things get hinky.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
