Why don't you test the install first, and then get back with any issues you may have. Put the antenna's up high above peoples heads and the body count won't mean much if anything at all.

Bob,
yes, the receiver will be about 6 ft up at the top of the rack.  I have arranged to purchase the desired unit with the condition that it can be returned if it doesn't perform.

6ft is not high. Many people are over 6' in shoes. Get the antenna up above people and in the same room as the transmitter.

This a 100' x 100' room.  Estimated max occupancy is 120-ish and dispersed pretty evenly, so a mass of bodies between the mic and receiver is extremely unlikely.
Are you saying that, if the reception is sub par, I should try just the 1/2 waves alone and only buy the wire and brackets if needed?  That would save about $150.

I've seen it happen in a 25x50 room that seats around 100; transmitter about 30 feet from the receiver. The signal was adequate and there were no dropouts during the service, but the display indicated a fair amount of signal attenuation that wasn't there when the room was empty.

If you're remote mounting the antennas, you'll probably need 1/2-waves anyway. So you might as well get them and try them directly on the receiver; it shouldn't hurt and might make enough difference -- and certainly less expensive then adding cables & connectors.
