I'm curious about whether anyone has tried the "GTD" systems? I know, I know, cheap stuff, and it looks like another example of "you get what you paid for". I do have a bit of a mystery with the handheld mic. The last time I or someone else tried to use it, it didn't work (batteries fine). In the first instance, I finally tried giving it a light smack on my hand, and it started working. A few days later, our pastor used it, and it didn't work at first, but then started working after about 10 minutes. I have dropped the mic a couple of times, but in either case, it was still working without a problem. If there's no idea here of a solution, I'm probably going to have to get something better. I'm hoping to get something in terms of Senheiser, Shure, or AKG, and would like to see if I can get a pair of handheld mics. in about the $600-700 range.
You should also pay attention to the frequency these units broadcast in. Are they in the soon-to-disappear 600 range ?
Okay, if the 600 range is "soon to disappear", what will be the available range(s)?
VHF is still safe. I fell back on my VHF Telex stuff when the 700 range went away; now that we're getting an encore shafting, it looks like I'll be dusting it off again, for simple speaking gigs at least. Gear snobs may sneer, but it's good enough for my humble weekend warrior duties, at least until I decide when/if to invest in UHF yet again.
I'm curious about more opinions of mics from the following manufacturers: AKG, AT, EV, SENHEISER, SHURE. I'm still trying to find something under $300 per mic system if possible. I don't need "Broadway" quality, but I do want something reliable so that I don't have to keep replacing them.
