Tell me more about the possible interference, please. What should I be aware of/watching for?
I think what Russell is referring to is that some digital packs can induce RF hash into instruments with sensitive pickups and electronics. We talked about that here recently, although the thread may have been about headset mics.

That's the one. The modulation scheme used by ULX-D and QLX-D in particular is know to cause problems which can only be solved by using a different wireless system. This interference typically only affects devices plugged directly into the transmitter, but for a wireless guitar rig that's the part you care about.

Actually, the problem can be mitigated by adding a ferrite clamp on the guitar cable, close to the belt pack. For the record, I've seen Sennheiser D6000 do this too. I'll try and find that other thread...I think I put links to ferrite clamps in that one. Found it: https://forums.prosoundweb.com/index.php/topic,172372.10.html Looks like I didn't put links in there...working on it.

Do you think a ferrite clamp would solve the problem with noise that I have with Crown CM-311 mics and Shure ULXD packs?

The pgxd has been Rock Solid for me.
You can probably find one used for three or four hundred dollars.
It operates in the 900 megahertz band andit sounds great.
I've compared to hardwire and it sounds just like the sm86 on the transmitter.
I've never had any problems with dropouts.
  I always have it on stage close to the transmitter.
 AA batteries last a long time average of 6 hours with juice still showing.

I have had good luck with the Line 6 xd stuff as long as you operate in RF1 rather than RF2.  RF1 can cause issues with other 2.5ghz equipment, including other Line 6 products not operating in RF1.

Huh, either I hadn't read that thread or I had forgotten your solution. I'll update my mental notes. Thanks for the reminder, Ike!
