Thank you for the article. I know this isnít an all-inclusive RF write up but it does touch on a lot of good points. One thing I learned after doing a lot of frequency coordination by scanning and using frequency coordination software, was leave space (assign spare channels) for additional wireless that might be added later. If you donít you might have to do a lot of re-tuning to add channels.

Also if a shop that provides wireless does a frequency coordination at their shop but they are far enough away from where the wireless will be used, they might not have taken into account the FR environment that they will be used in. And you might have problems due to that. I had that happen once, before I became fanatical about frequency coordination. The problems showed up in the rehearsal.

I started doing frequency coordination on the jobs I was doing because of seeing problems and realizing it was needed. So I learned how to do it. And when I look back on what and how I was doing it I have realized the things that werenít accounted for. And am a little bit surprised at how well it worked back then. I was saved many times by the fact that the strongest signal wins. But I remember once in a rehearsal when the transmitter moved backstage it wasnít the strongest signal anymore and something else could punch thru and overdrive the input on the mixer. And on an analog mixer that signal could be so hot that even with the channel muted it could still bleed over to adjacent channels. Now with better procedures for coordination that problem can be avoided.

Again thank you for the article.
