    its more common nowadays to have a HP transmitter on a short hose.

    I dive with the spg on the left hip. Mg stage 1 is a Scubapro mk17. That would mean my transmitter will be on my right shoulder. Will that be a proble, if my dive comp is in my left wrist?

    Or would it be better to move the spg to the right hip so the transmitter can Ben on the same side as the dive comp.

    I dive side mount with twin transmitters and never really had any issue with arm distance from tank. That being said, in BM doubles I have my computer on my right arm to allow me to use my left hand for lights and buoyancy etc. When I have had a transmitter on my right post, that has been pretty reliable.

    Ok... everything on the right. I’ll consider that. Dive watch on right wrist and transmitter on right. From where I dive it’s best to have the transmitter on a short hose... over eager boatmen might hold on to the large handle.

    I dive single tank

    I dont think your prozimity issue is worthy of concern. leave the spg on the left hip. your puter on the right so you can operate the wing inflation and still read the puter.

    Hi Lance: I put the transmitter on R side on a 4" HP Hose. Computer (Perdix) goes on right arm. Left arm is used for compass and inflator/deflator manipulation. SPG on left hip D-ring.

    I have found that if computer is on the opposite side, I loose transmission at times.

    Single tank: transmitter and perdix right side. No hose it is mounted directly to 1st stage. No spg.

    Doubles: Transmitter on right post with 6 inch hose. Spg left post, left hip d ring (or sometimes over left shoulder with inflator) depends on the amount of bottles I am carrying.

    I agree with the above sentiment, transmitter and computer on the same side. If I cross them I have had interference at times.

    Nice. I’ve decided to put Tx and Teric on the same side right side.

    Curious. The short hose on the transmitter. Does it just stay like that hanging? Or do you bungee it somewhere? I have a thing for stuffs that just hangs and bumps around.
    Was thinking of a 6in or 9in hp hose then bungee the Tx on my right shoulder strap

    No spg? While diving singles? Why?

    There is a purpose to everything on a hog rig.

    Your SPG is on the left post in order to act as a double check that the isolator is open and your left post is on. If you check it and it is still showing the same pressure you entered the water with, then the isolator is off. If it is showing empty or very low, then your left post is off.

    If you put your transmitter on your right post then you will rely on it and not get those warning messages.

    Although it is theoretically adding a failure point, I'd get and HP port doubler and have both SPG and transmitter on my left post, if I was going to use a transmitter.
