flasher interference

Gator Slayer

Recommended Posts

I know this has been discussed but I'm curious if anyone has any experience with using two marcums in the same portable. I have a LX1 and a VX1, the VX1 suffers a lot of interference. Has anyone used 2 VX1's next to each other? I've heard 2 LX3's or 2 Lx5s are fine but nothing on the new units. Anyone with real life experience with the VX1's?

My buddy has a VX1 and I have an LX-3, we have never fished in the same house before, but with our portables we have been 10 feet apart and able to block out the interference, certainly me more than him. I know this isn't exactly the answer to your post, but it's what I have experienced...

This isnt the anwser you want but with a general title as flasher interference I figured I would post.

I recently bought a LX 5, One of my boys has an FL18 the other an FL8.

I can filter out both %100, the FL18 can get rid of most of it and the FL8 is a mess.

Similar situation for me but in the same house, and my LX-3 can block out his cabelas flasher (don't remember the number but it's supposedly marcum-made) much better than he can block me. Then my father in law hopped in the house with his FL18, and the cabelas flasher got even worse. I got about 95% out, the vex was troubled but usable, and the cabelas flasher was almost unusable. Hope this helps.

Arrgh, the monkey races on the dial can sure be frustrating!

Sometimes, interference can be more related to the bottom geometry vs what brand of flasher you are using.

There have been times where the MarCum will swamp me out, sometime my FL18 will give the MarCum fits.

When fishing on steep breaklines, often one flasher will seem to overpower everyone else. Sharp breaks, walls, rocks/boulders can have return signals coming back at odd angles, and no amount of fiddling short of moving around will clean the problem up.

This last weekend we fished with a Fl-8 FL-18 LX-5 and Aqua Vu VPG.

I could always get my interferance out. The VPG was a mess, LX-5 was a mess, FL-8 was mess. For rating who could get the interferance out best my ratings would be

1. FL-18

2. LX-5

3. VPG - was usable because of the greyscale

4. FL-8

I fished this past weekend with 2 LX3's (one was mine) and a FL8 in a 8X8 house. Mine had some occasional interference, the other LX3 was perfect and that poor FL8 was like flamin' Christmas-that poor girl! We would go around the house pushing the IR button but just had to be happy with what we got! Doesn't this sometimes have to do with the depth of water you were fishing in too? We were in 25ft and I heard the deeper the water the worse the problems.

    • Luxury RV camping has become increasingly popular in recent years as people look for ways to enjoy the great outdoors while still enjoying the comforts of home. With the right equipment and preparation, luxury RV camping can be a truly unforgettable experience. In this essay, we will provide you with the ultimate guide to luxury RV camping, including tips on choosing the right RV, selecting the best campsite, and packing for your trip.   The first step to planning a luxury RV camping trip is to choose the right RV. There are a variety of different types of RVs available, ranging from small and compact trailers to large and luxurious motorhomes. The right RV for you will depend on your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   One popular option for luxury RV camping is a Class A motorhome. These motorhomes are typically the largest and most luxurious RVs available, with spacious interiors, full kitchens, and even multiple bathrooms. They often come equipped with high-end features such as leather upholstery, flat-screen televisions, and high-quality audio systems. Class A motorhomes are also the most expensive type of RV, but they offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury.   Another popular option for luxury RV camping is a fifth wheel trailer. These trailers are typically larger than travel trailers and are designed to be towed by a pickup truck. They offer many of the same amenities as Class A motorhomes, including full kitchens, multiple bathrooms, and high-end features such as surround sound systems and flat-screen televisions. Fifth wheel trailers are often less expensive than Class A motorhomes but still offer a high level of comfort and luxury.   Once you have chosen the right RV for your luxury camping trip, the next step is to select the perfect campsite. There are a variety of different types of campsites available, ranging from basic, no-frills campsites to high-end RV resorts with all the amenities. When selecting a campsite, it is important to consider your budget, your travel plans, and your personal preferences.   If you are looking for a truly luxurious camping experience, consider staying at an RV resort. These resorts often offer a wide range of amenities, including swimming pools, hot tubs, fitness centers, and even golf courses. They also typically offer high-end services such as concierge service, valet parking, and room service. RV resorts can be expensive, but they offer the ultimate in luxury and comfort.   If you are looking for a more affordable camping experience, consider staying at a state or national park. These parks offer a variety of different campsites, ranging from basic tent sites to RV sites with electrical and water hookups. While state and national parks may not offer the same level of luxury as RV resorts, they do offer the opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the outdoors.     Once you have chosen the perfect RV and campsite, the final step is to pack for your luxury camping trip. When packing for a luxury RV camping trip, it is important to focus on comfort and convenience. Pack clothing that is appropriate for the weather and activities you have planned, as well as comfortable shoes for hiking and exploring.   In addition to clothing, it is important to pack all the essentials you will need for your trip. This includes bedding, towels, toiletries, and any medications or other personal items you may need. It is also important to pack food and drinks, as well as any cooking supplies you will need for meals. If you are camping in the cold weather, bring the Ocoopa Union 5s rechargeable hand warmers are easy to use for camping. First, charge it, then turn it on, and finally, place it in your gloves or pockets. Additionally, the rechargeable hand warmer has 4 heat settings, allowing you to adjust the temperature to various weather conditions. With a large 10000mAh battery, it can provide up to 15 hours of heat and could use as a power bank, making it an ideal hand warmer for extended outdoor activities.   Finally, when packing for your luxury RV camping trip, don’t forget to pack entertainment options such as books, movies, and games. While luxury camping offers many opportunities for relaxation and outdoor activities, it is also important to have options for downtime and relaxation.
