X85 Interference with Humminbird??

11 posts in this topic

I use an X85 for the rear of the boat. I recently got a Humminbird WIDE 100 from a
buddy,that I am planning on putting on
the troller up front.I mainly want it for when I'm sitting up front and want some
depth/structure info,but having them both
on would be nice as well.The Humminbird is
a 200khz unit with a 24 degree ducer.The X85
runs at 192 khz.Has anyone mixed Lowrance
and Humminbirds this way??Boat is 17.5 feet
so there will be some seperation from the two.

Hang on there tumble weed
I allso have a hummingbird and I like it alot. But what you were told about mixing two different kinds of finders is ok provided they are at least 100-150 megahertz apart if not they will interfere with each other.But by placing them at two different ends of the boat you should have a depth range of around thirty ft. before the cones overlap and thsy begin to feedback on each other. I was told this by the factory rep for hummingbird. now bottom line make a nice unit with side scan that runs at over 400 megs and will not bother your other depth finder one bit.Good luck and keep your lines wet.

Basshunter, are you running another unit or have you ran another unit along side your hummingbird? Or are you going off the hummingbird rep info? If so , what is the freqency? I run a Garmin at 200khz right along side a x-85 at 192khz and get no interference what so ever..

D-Man I have a 300tx in the bow on my trolling motor and I have a 200dx on the stern and I have been having trouble with getting what I thought was just a lot of junk in the water at 26ft.a lot of spots and junk on my screen getting worse the deeper it went and that is what I was told causedit.I changed the unit for a bottom line 1200 which runs at over 400mghts and havn`t had A problem.D-man do you have one of your finders set on your trolling motor allso and if so how often do you fish in deep water?If you are just running both units in shallow water ,20 ft or less I doubt then you would be having any problems.

I have them both mounted on the transom opposite of each other and the units are mounted side by side. I mainly use them in waters between 20-33 feet. I also run a Vex at 200khz along side a LMS-350a at 192 khz with no problems.

I wil be putting it through the first test
on Sat. morning on Lake Marion. If I remember right,the deepest spot out there is around
30 feet,but seeing the shoreline yesterday,
the water level is very low this spring,and it may not even be thirty feet.I will post
here on my results.

Went out to Marion around 2pm. Lots of
folks out there.Anyway, both locators worked fine with one another.I tried them with both the trolling motor and the main outboard motor running,and even with both going, with zero problems.I will try this one
more time in some deeper water,and again
post the results.

P.S. Hey D-man, that PD-50 works great,
thanks again!! Are you getting up to your boat soon?? I am waiting for the other half of that quik-off mount.Let me know.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
