Guys,

Can I just say that: I HATE any wireless anything in a metal rack behind a concrete wall.

Rant over.

I've gotten it so the "loud pop" is now a "soft blip" by maxing out the squelch. Seems to be working great!

Don't tell me about retuning them, I have 24 of them and of course half of them are 600mhz.

The new 3000 series are nice with some updated features short of the body pac connector that will not work with the tried and true HIROSE mic connectors unless you buy their adapter cable.

I feel they should have kept the same 3000 series form factor with just an additional frequency group offering (actually they used to have a 400mhz group and dropped it ) and introduced what is the new series and called it the 3500 series.
.....rant over.

Yep. I've abandoned my AT 3000 gear and moved to QLX-D, since none of the lavs and earworn mics would work with new AT gear.

Actually I would not call that working great until you get no blips or pops. I think there is still another underlying issue.

Also keep in mind by maxing out the squelch you decreased the mic operating range.

Is there anything nearby with a motor? HVAC, cooler unit, anything that kind of “kicks on”?

The AT cH to cW body pack mic adapter cable looks decently built and works........but was there really a need to change connectors in the first place?

I don't get much time to play with this stuff, and at least the speakers won't be damaged overtime. Also they do have antenna distro, and in this case, I think any detriment to range will be minimal...

I have 3 of the adapters. They are built very well. Infact, if you  are using the body packs, they are almost too heavy. Again, why change what works? $$$$
