    My wife and I both dive Atomic B2s with Shearwater transmitters on the right and Terics on our left wrists and we’ve never had a drop. We dive the configuration 5-6 days/week and frequently 2 dives/day. Our SPGs are both on our left side.

    Oceanic VT 4, 5 years and 500 dives, no issues here either.

    So as an update to my OP, I have had no issues using my Teric on my left wrist and my Shearwater transmitter on my Atomic ST1 on the right and have had no dropouts or other problems.

    Teric on left wrist; Perdix on right wrist. One transmitter. Neither computer cares where the Tx is mounted on my first stage. I also use a button gauge so I can check tank pressure quickly.

    We just bought Mares Quad Airs and will have the transmitters on the right, SPGs on the left and wear the computers on our left as we've always done. I'll be interested to see if they drop signal at all next month when we fully test them. I just like the redundancy of the SPG. I have it on a 24" miflex hose and it'll be out of the way until I need it. I don't want to call a dive if i don't have to.

    Crud. Sorry, I just realized this was in the Shearwater forum.

    I have an SPG and an AI watch computer (Aqualung I450t). And use this adapter and it works great.

    yes, I still feel more comfortable with my SPG too as my redundant tool to know my tank pressure. That's how this discussion actually started -- my first stage configuration would only allow me to mount the transmitter on the right (with the Teric on my left wrist), but as noted no issues for me.
