    Very long cable for OminMic

    Hello everyone.

    I needed to use the OmniMic 60 feet from my lab desktop PC.

    I found that a USB extender works perfectly. (PE sells these. However I purchased the IO Gear GUCE51 at Fry's.)

    Basically, the connection scheme is this:
    OminMic cable -> USB transmitter -> Cat5e/Cat6 cable -> USB receiver -> PC_USB-port

    In my case, I used a 100-foot Cat6 cable. Note that a regular Cat5 cable did not work, as evidenced by the OM blue LED not lighting. So you must use Cat5e or Cat6 cable only.
