It was a two channel unit (one receiver with two mics, each on separate frequencies).
Frequency one: 720mhz, frequency two: 750mhz.....

I introduced myself and told the dude that those mic frequencies were illegal to use as of 2010....his response: "really?"..but he kept on trying to get it to work.
 

Funny story: Did an event 2 weeks ago when a performer showed up 5 minutes until they go on and handed me a Pyle receiver with 2 channels on 1 xlr. No frequencies where listed on the receiver at all. I told them we couldn't/shouldn't use this and that we had no time as I already had 8 other wireless frequencies going between handhelds and iems. He insisted that we use them so we did. 1 mic was cutting in and out and the other didn't even work.

I would bet it has been doing that at every one of his shows for the past year!!!


I would say the "art" of being handed an unknown pile of parts or **** and making a working PA system out of it is fast becoming a lost art.
