Title: Antenna Placement Question
Post by: James A. Griffin on April 20, 2017, 10:52:47 am
I have an upcoming event in an old warehouse venue, brick walls all around, wooden floor, approx 12' ceilings.   The event will take place in 2 side-by-side rooms, approx 40' x 75' each, with brick wall separating them.   There's a large garage door size opening between the 2 rooms.  Presenters will be roaming between the two rooms with wireless headsets.

I'll have 4 Senn bodypacks feeding a rack of receivers w/ ASA1 splitter and 2 A1031U paddles.    I'm thinking that one paddle in each room will be proper placement.    One paddle will have approx 25' cable going to the ASA1, the other will be approx 75'.

Is this good or is there a better way?

ADDED FOR CLARITY:  Yes, I know I'll lose the advantage of diversity, but I'm figuring that 1 strong signal will be better than 2 weaker signals if I don't split them for the better coverage.

Split each of the antenna inputs A/B with a 1X2 RF splitter.  Put A&B antennas in each space.
