They do, but the system comes with a little note reminding you that wireless audio can't pass through water.

Place it on the person where it won't be submerged while he speaks.  Between the shoulder blades or in a breast pocket should work.

In a zip-loc bag with the opening down.

I had a high on the back pouch made once for this exact purpose.  It worked great.  One of the keys is the person wearing it needs to be onboard with keeping it dry.  Yes accidents happen but if youve worked in the HoW space long enough youve probably run into quite a few the rules dont apply, Im the boss, Ill do it my way pastors.  Figuring out a way to get lost/damaged RF to come out of their budget is a great way to get better stewardship.

Ask the Spiritual Person In Charge if, without amplification, will the almighty somehow not know about the ritual being done?

I thought about a shotgun mic but this was my concern, picking up a lot of water noise in addition to the pastor and the possibility of it getting splashed depending on its location.
The upgrade does include some QLXD Beta87 handhelds so that would be an option, but you still run into the issues of getting a lot of water noise as well as the possibility of being splashed.

Other than being cheap, the headset transmitter did work very well in this situation.  It's even been dunked a few times itself but still works fine.  Perhaps I'll try the new samson ones or just go with the Beta87 route.

Thank you, everyone, for the replies.

Beta-anything would be my absolute last choice in high gain, high noise situations.

Well, the church encourages family, friends, and the congregation to attend baptisms.  The sanctuary seats about 500.  Without a mic, those who are hard of hearing start "whispering" amongst themselves (they're actually screaming but just don't know it) about how they can't hear.  So as the audio person in charge, I'm declaring that we need amplification in some capacity if we want to keep the grandmas happy.

Don't worry though, "just shout" is my solution to a lot of other audio reinforcement situations.

Church-based worship is a shared experience. And these days, shared with a lot of people at once.  Hence the need for sound reinforcement.

Granted, Sampson is not a professional wireless.  However it would be good for this purpose, I believe.  The new verson still is an improvement.

Instead of that... what do you think of their AHX Fitness Headset Kit?
(http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/wireless-systems/airline-atx/airline-ahx-qe/)

I'm attracted to this because of the receiver's removable antennas, I may be able to place it in the rack and feed it off the UA844's with the rest of the recivers.

I'm *very* aware of the 11AM God Show.  Trust me on that.

Consider "if a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it, did it really happen?" as an analogy...
