G3 sennhieser - 1 transmit, 2 recieve for redundancy, is it possible?

Hi,
I currently have a g3 1 transmit and 1 receive, and I was thinking of adding another receiver so I would have a redundant system. So I will have 1 transmit and 2 receive.
1 receiver goes to h4n, another receiver goes to camera directly.

Anyone doing this system settings? Or does it makes sense?
Any help would be appreciated.

thanks,

Should work fine. As long as both receivers are set to the same frequency as the xmitter, they'll both receive.

Will work just fine. Now 2 transmitters to one receiver is another story but you can have as many receivers as you wish listening to the same transmittter.

It will work fine - but is not truly a redundant system as you only have one transmitter.

Two transmitters feeding two receivers on different frequencies would be truly a redundant system.

Not so expensive as you think - as you can normally get systems at a good discount, while receivers on their own are normally only sold at full retail - you may find the price difference very small.

In this case I would get a second system.

That sort of setup is often used on "Important" people when multiple news crews etc are covering the same event.
I did a Papal visit in my city many years ago and all the official crews to the event were given the 2 frequencies the popes lapel mics would be on prior to the event.
