Professional Quality Radio Mic Systems
for all levels of service from light-to-heavy
Good radio mic systems
are complex to make and you should be in no
doubt that you most certainly get what you pay for.
Beware the cheap and cheerful systems out
there selling for less than our offerings here.
lower the cost, the less reliable they tend to
be. Hence we won't go near them. It is important that your recordings
and presentations are of the highest quality and
uninterrupted by noise or interference. So we've
selected the appropriate grade of equipment to
deliver this. Well-made, reliable products, fit for
purpose. Ones that sound great too, and will give you many years of
good, worry-free service. But without breaking
We offer four
Channels to choose from...
Shared Band 'U' (Channel 38)
UK Shared Band (Channel 70)
This UHF channel
is the most commonly used and spans the frequencies of 606 to 614MHz. You may manually tune a
Channel 38 radio mic system to any frequency within this
spectrum, and typically you would be able to use up to ten
systems safely (depending on the chosen system) each on a different frequency within that spectrum,
without interference between those systems. To use any of the
frequencies within the Channel 38 spectrum a low-cost licence is
UHF Channel 70
spans the frequencies of 863-865MHz. Only four frequencies
within this spectrum can be used legally: Ch70-1 on 863.125MHz; Ch70-2 on 863.625MHz; Ch70-3 on 864.500MHz; and Ch70-4 on 864.875MHz. All are
deregulated and free to use without a licence in the UK. With
most systems the frequency is fixed and you
must specify your choice of Ch70 frequency when ordering. Only
ATW-11/PF systems enable the user to select
the frequency manually.
Band [No licence
Unlike the two
UHF channels above, both of which are
specifically set aside for radio microphone
usage, Wi-Fi Band radio mic systems operate on
the same frequency as all other Wi-Fi devices,
namely by using the worldwide Wi-Fi frequency
which is 2.4GHz. Because of this they are
entirely licence free. Such systems can work
very well and sound very good indeed in
low-to-normal use Wi-Fi environments. However,
because they run on the same frequency as yours
and everyone else's Wi-Fi networks, we advise
caution if this type of system is intended for
use in a highly intensive Wi-Fi environment.
A fixed site
licence* (or Co-Ordinated Licence) enables you to reserve a set of
frequencies on the UHF band in your locality for
your use and your use alone. What this means is
that you buy the right to the sole use of one or
more frequencies in your area and they cannot
legally be used by anyone else in that area.
This is therefore the safest radio mic solution
of all and is perfect for fixed venues like
churches, schools and similar places in built-up
areas and anywhere there is a stronger
likelihood of other people using radio
microphones as well as you. Low-cost licensing
