Great audio reports!
10 January 2014
Summary: Found a brand new UB802 in a pawnshop for $30. Took it home and connected it to my Heil PR-781 and after making some audio cables to go between the mixer and my 2 radios(IC-9100,IC-2720) the compliments on my audio started pouring in. Great little mixer! 10 thumbs up! Highly recommended!
Summary: After seeing edisode #36 of Ham Nation with Bob Heil I decided to try out the Berriger 802 with my TS-2000 and the Heil 781 mic. With a little help from some friends on a simplex HF frequency we started the tuning proceess of lows, mids and highs. I'm recieving great audio reports. Just about everyone is asking me what type of rig I'm running. It sure is nice to fist in line during a pile up.
Summary: Works well indeed ! This is an excellent selection. Not originally designed gor HA/CB use it may have features not used or needed but these are in addition to the very useful features we do look for . If you happen to be experiencing RF infiltration issues it is very likely you should be correcting your antenna/station ground issues.
Summary: I also use an 802 in the shack using a Behringer dynamic mic feeding the balanced modulator directly in my TS850. I have no problems with feedback in the shack. Only problem I noticed was with the mixer hooked up I would get RF in my audio when operating PSK mode into the 13 pin DIN on the back of the radio.
Summary: This simple 8 input mixer only cost £39.00 GBP, but works really well in my application. I first used it to power a Behringer B-1 condenser mic - which required a 48V supply phantom supply. The 802 mixer provides this supply as well as a pre-amp as well as a 3 band EQ. Since the B-1, I have moved on to a Heil PR-781 dynamic microphone and the 802 continues to provide a nice feed to my SDR radio.
Summary: I bought this XENYX 802 based on reviews on eham. This piece of eqt is better than my ratshck reciever for rf from as far away as 1/4 mi. Useless in my shack.And don't even think about an amp on line. Eqt here is Ten Tec Jup, ocf ant at 35 ft and small 811 amp at 600w. As everyone knows, Ten Tec gear must have an excellent or better rf suppresion system in place to work without distortion on audio. Not a problem here normally. Behringer is useless.
Summary: I have the Xenyx 802, which I suppose is the successor to the UB-802. They look identical but the documents on the Xenyx series claim they are based upon the 'British EQ' legendary circuitry used in Britain and reknowned for their warm and musical sound character. Okay. All I know is that the mic preamp gives a healthy boost to my microphone(s), and the 3 band EQ helps to shape the signal fed to my W2IHY EQ Plus audio console and finally to my rig.
Summary: I purchased this mixer for two reasons. I needed 48v. phantom power for some studio mics I have laying around and I also wanted two mic inputs so that I can leave mics in two different operating positions. The $50 price tag helped too. I feed the output from the mixer into the back of my Icom 756PROII [ACC jack]. The cable from one mic is 18' long. The cables from the other mic to mixer and from the mixer to the rig are approximately 3' long.
Summary: Use mine with the B1 microphone. You WILL have to apply some rf taming methods i.e. beads on leads. Great to be able to monitor your audio before it gets to the rig - if your can hear your fan or a/c so will everyone else.
