Hummingbird Interference ?

6 posts in this topic

I just got a bird ice 45 and i love it! I went out with my buddy who has a ice 35 a few nights ago. I was having issues with interference. It seemed like my bird was going crazy, it was really weird. I had my buddy shut his down and the problem went away. I thought that the Birds were supposes to have less inference issues. Anyone know if there is a setting to fix these issues?

we also had a guy in our house with a Marcum

Yeah I did try playing with the settings it seemed to help a bit… I really don’t understand the interference settings though

The HBs will interfer with each other because they're on the same frequency. Marcum and Vex are on a different frequency than HB so there should be no interference in that regard.

To tune out the interference between your HB units, you need to cycle through all 10 steps of interference rejection until you find the one that cleans it up the most. Try this to just one unit at a time until you get it as good as can be, then try the second unit, then go back to the first unit, etc. It's much easier to work on one unit at a time than to try to do them both at the same time.

If worst case and you can't clean it up, either move the units farther apart or switch one to the other beam (different frequency).

If you use for example the narow cone and have your partner use the wide cone these two cones are at different fequencys and will not interfear with each other.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
