I invite requests by SMS, so my mobile stays on, but on Vibrate mode.

 

 

 

It took a little trial and error to work out a really safe place to leave the phone behind the disco. Too near the radio mic, or even the corded mic (both Shure SM-58s), too close to the radio mic receiver, or the one remaining record deck and the phone-to-network registration electronic "gallops" (every 15-20 mins, and every time an incoming text is received) are audible through the disco audio (if the mic channel/record deck channel is on/up etc). So...leaving the phone on the CD/Record cases, normally about 4 or 5 ft away from the audio gear is where I keep my phone during gigs.

Hmmm you must have something unscreened somewhere... As I put mine right next to the Domestic laptop that I use and it never makes a sound over my PA.. But it does next to your Professional Denons umm food for thought there I think....

I switch mine off. When it has been switched on, never had a problem with the radio mic or the kit but understand others have. Saying that, the car radio has been a different matter!

Do you have a sign or something with text the DJ your request and your number? or do you have to mention your number over the mic?

My text request number is shown on the paper request slips which I place on the tables/bars etc, depending on venue. Also I have an LED moving message sign which displays greetings and various pieces of information including the text request number.

 

Accepting text requests has the advantage of you then have peoples mobile numbers, as you can't withhold a mobile number from an SMS text message. Good for mailshots by SMS although I've only ever used that idea to blast out a Merry Christmas message to that years requestors 3 or 4 times/years.

Not the Denon (if it's all properly wired) as mine sits about 2 inches from my Denon and picks up nothing, not even a signal in some hotels :rolleyes:
