A Mic Clamp for Tough Duties
Adjusted clamp adds versatility, security
SAN MATEO, CALIF. – Created by videographer Dean Smith, the Press Conference Microphone Clamp aims to lock down a microphone. He developed it through trial and error in the quest to build a mic stand/mount that wouldn’t be easily knocked over, come loose, strip-out or slide off of what it was clipped to.
 
A metal vise with jaws spanning app. 1.5 inches forms one end. That end can be attached to a table, podium, protruding tab, mic boom or camera. It connects to an aluminum alloy “body” via an arm and ball joint, allowing almost full global rotation. The body is basically a sandwich that can be tightened and loosened via a bolt knob in the center.
 
At the other end is another ball jointed arm, this one with a stud-mounted standard mic clamp from Shure. It too has good rotation range and is tightened by the knob. The component maker makes industrial mounts used by industry and law enforcement.
 
Smith swapped out one of the arms for a stronger arm to fit his needs and ordered a batch. He is now selling them for $62 a piece.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
I suspect that the estimated $44 billion of auction proceeds do not take into account the fact that some spectrum the FCC will buy cannot be resold because it must be used as guard intervals in the 600 MHz band plan.~ Charles W. Rhodes
