    I dive Sidemount with two transmitters and my Perdix on the right hand ( never on the left because that hand should be free to use the LPI and allow you to still see the computer) and I have not had a signal loss. I screw mine directly into the first stage but dive and let dive.

    At various times I've had the TX on both sides with the computer on my left wrist. No problems.

    What I have observed a couple of times when divers were having problems was that their tanks were very low on their backs such that the first stage with TX was buried somewhere down below their shoulders. So a lot of body mass was shielding the transmission.
