Noise and receiver questions (wireless)

Hey folks,

I have two wireless questions for the gurus (a club of which I am not a member!).

I have an Audio Technica Digtal Reference UHF set (if I understand correctly, was intended for guitars), which is a DR-RSS receiver and a DR-T250 transmitter. It actually sounds just fine for my needs. However, I need to be mobile for an upcoming project, and this receivers needs to be plugged in.

I picked up a Pro 88W/T and Pro 88 W/R set, and that works ok, but I get plenty of interference noise when the person wearing the lav moves. So the mobility and testing went well, but the interference noise is annoying, to say the least.

Question one: is there a way to minimize the noise from the Pro 88 set?

Question two: is there a wireless receiver I can get that will go with the DR-T250? (since the sound on this is better, I guess that is my preference)


(I guess question three is a language one. What is the proper way to list a wireless receiver that runs on batteries versus one that is plugged in? Are they both called wireless receiver, or is there a different designation?)

Thanks.

Pro 88W only work if you are in a wilderness with no other radios. Your noise is due to the frequency being too close to another and the unit's having limited range.

>>Call AT in Stow, OH and ask to speak to the wireless mic guys. Tell 'em Ty said to call with your question. ASk if they have a battery powered wireless receiver that's compatible with your xmitter.

>>It is unclear to me as to the source of the noise. Is it interference or clothing noise?

Question one: is there a way to minimize the noise from the Pro 88 set?

>>Sure. Get the receiver closer to the transmitter. Scan for better frequencies.

Question two: is there a wireless receiver I can get that will go with the DR-T250? (since the sound on this is better, I guess that is my preference)

>>See above

Both are wireless receivers.
