      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

interference problems?

Recommended Posts

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??

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.
