Using 2 Wireless Lav Mic's on an EX3

Hey Kids,

I just picked up a Sony UWPV1/4244 Wireless Mic as a back up to my Sennheiser G2

Coincidentally I just got a gig where I'll have two interview subjects on camera. It's a longish shot so a boom mic is not right for the shot so so now having two wireless mics was a happy coincidence

Then it occurred to me...how do I deal with freq's on each mic. Can they be on the same freq or do I have to set them up on different freq's? I've always had the Sennheiser on the out of the box setting...what do I do with the Sony? Never had to deal with this before.

Advice?

The two wireless will have to be on different frequencies or they will interfere with each other. Send the output of one receiver to the camera channel one, the other to channel 2. Don't try to mix them together; save any mixing for post.
