I'm in the northern Virginia area and looking for some help in resolving an RF problem. I'm happy to pay a reasonable hourly or day rate for competent help. The gear at issue is all Audio Technica, all in the 600MHz band.
I did a show this past weekend with six RF channels, four in one rack, two in another. The problems occurred with the two channel set-up, which has ATW-R310b and ATW-R3100b receivers, with an ATW-49SP antenna splitter and a pair of the A3D half wave antennas. I was using them each with an ATW-T310b bodypack and ATM75 headset mic.
Venue was a high school auditorium, both RF racks on a table in monitor world, side stage. Performers with the two bodypacks were at most 60 feet from the receivers, bodypacks in coat pockets or clipped to pants with a dress coat over them. At one point there was a theatre curtain between the performers and receivers, but for most of the show the curtain was open.
I got intermittent low level but audible static, and occasional loud pops and dropouts on both systems in the two-channel rack.
In case it's germane, the four channel rack was on the same table, underneath the two channel rack. It has four ATW-R3100b receivers, an AEW-660D antenna distribution unit and a pair of ATW-A49 LPDA antennas. Those four channels presented no problems.
I checked with the AT website and I set all six RF systems to their recommended frequencies for that zip code (staying away from DTV in that area) ahead of time. I was also running RF Explorer with a laptop during the show and saw no other activity near the two channels in question. Here's where all six systems were set:
