Isn't it just easier just to put a TX on the left and a RX on right of the person?  why is that so objectionable?

For that matter, why haven't guitar manufacturers stepped up and just built wireless right into the guitars?  Wouldn't that make a hell of a lot more sense than a pack gaff-taped to the strap?  And the headstock would be an ideal location for the antenna.

Or the Wammy bar.

To that end, I’ve had several bands come through that plug a little “dongle” transmitter with a 1/4” jack into their guitar with the receiver on their pedalboard. During break they plug the dongle back into the receiver which is also a recharger. I didn’t get the brand name of the units but they worked fine in our venue and sure were clean and easy.

Line6 makes a unit like you describe.  Runs in the 2.4 band, so susceptible to all the usual WiFi issues.  But when they have enough spectrum to operate in, they sound and work just fine.

Using a WiFi-band audio device professionally is like wearing a bright red outfit to a "everybody dress in white/black" event.  It's works out great *if* you're the only one doing it.

With current technology it should be able to at least coordinate non-conflicting tx & rx in a microprocessor controlled rackmounted head unit. Wolfgang from Sennheiser asked “why would you want that ?” When I asked about a single rack space combo. Germans seem the leader in ‘not inventedhere’ ignorance.
