Radio microphones

Channel 70 (license-free) system:

A complete system will comprise a rack mount receiver, and either a belt pack or handheld transmitter. Each transmitter uses 2 AA batteries which last for approx 6 hours. If using more than 4 channels or more an antenna distribution unit is needed, which allows the system to run off of aerials that can be located closer to the transmitters. A rack mount battery charger is available too, and Duracell Duralock rechargeable batteries are recommended. Channel 70 radio mics can be used without any special licenses, though this means that other users may use this frequency too which may cause interference. Bewltpack transmitters re supplied with a Sennheiser ME2 mic as standard. MKE2's are available.

Channel 38 (licensed) system:

A complete system will comprise a rack mount receiver, and either a belt pack or handheld transmitter. Each transmitter uses 2 AA batteries which last for approx 6 hours. If using more than 4 channels or more an antenna distribution unit is needed, which allows the system to run off of aerials that can be located closer to the transmitters. A rack mount battery charger is available too, and Duracell Duralock rechargeable batteries are recommended. Channel 38 radio mics require a special license from Ofcom, which helps reduce the likelihood of interference. Licenses are easy to obtain and can be purchased for you.


Portable Radio Mic system:

This uses battery powered transmitters and battery powered receivers to provide a fully portable radio mic system. It operates on Ch.38. The receiver outputs at mic or line level via a 3.5mm socket. An adaptor is provided to provide XLR output. A tripod mount, or 3.5mm to 3.5mm lead, for the receiver can be supplied on request.


IEM (In ear monitor)

Sennheiser G2 IEM system (ch40)

An IEM system typically consists of a rack mount transmitter and a belt pack receiver. It allows either a performer to wear a pair of wireless headphones, or can be used to send sound to a battery powered speaker, for a prop (e.g. a crying baby, mobile phone). Multiple receivers can also be used with one transmitter so multiple people can listen to the same feed. If 4 transmitters are used then an antenna combiner unit allows the system to run off of a single aerial that can be located closer to the receivers. A license from Ofcom is required to use these, to ensure interference free operation. Licenses are easy to obtain and can be purchased for you.
