I installed yesterday the ImmersionRC 600mW A/V transmitter with a Black Pearl Diversity Monitor 7" screen, 5.8GHz.

The signal seems a bit flaky. What channel should I have it set to get the best signal?

I'm using the following antennas:

5.8GHz SpiroNet Omni Antenna Set (v2) (one on the Black Pearl, one on the ImmersionRC transmitter)
https://www.dpcav.com/xcart/5.8GHz-spiroNET-Antenna-Set-RHCP-Version-2.html

and the other side of the Black Pearl:
5.8GHz Circular Polarized Patch Antenna, RHCP (SMA)
https://www.dpcav.com/xcart/5.8GHz-Circular-Polarized-Patch-Antenna-5dBi.html

Any suggestions?

I can check the channel when I get home tonight. The TX is on whatever it was shipped with.
The only change I needed to make was making sure the go pro and BP were both set to PAL or NTSC. I changed it on the go pro. Really scrambles the display if they are not the same.

I'm use BP 32ch receive band F channel 1 and since there only one TX being use both Rx 1/2 are set to channel 1. If you change the frequency to any of the 7 available make sure RX 1/2 are the same.

That patch antenna has to be aimed directly at the P2 in order to pick up the signal.

Yeah, I had the same issue. I changed the monitor to NTSC and everything went well!

Thank you! I didn't know the Patch antenna needed to be pointed directly at the P2. I'll try that out. I'm set to Channel 1 on both Rx 1/2.
