I have not been able to find the answer to this, but can you plug a CTR-301P (or any other trigger) into the Camera/Flash on a Pocket Wizard and then trigger through it. In other words I have a friend with Pocket Wizards and I have CTR-301P's, but we can't plug them both into the studio lights and trigger other lights optically.

Thanks for the help!

Yes, you can as long as the CTR-301P receiver is plugged into the Camera/Flash port of the PW transmitter unit, assuming that the PW receiver is used to trigger the strobes.

Good to know, I'll get an adapter plug and try it out. Is the plug on a PW a 3.5MM mono plug?

Hmmm...that does not work for me...? But I did realize something very simple, just put the PW in the hot shoe and it works perfect.
