Re: wireless system with DC in?

I have both body pack and plug-on transmitters (I have the 2 channel receiver). When I'm working with an audio guy I hand him a pair of plug-ons and go. Keeps my rig nice and tidy. Plenty of range for what I do (200' or less). I wish I had them with me for a gig a couple of weeks ago. I ended up running a steadicam shoot with an audio cable hanging off the sled.

For interviews in noisy places I have one of the Sony ENG stick mics (F-112).

For body pack stuff I have a pair of the AT899cW lavs. They sound great for the $$. I also have a pair of the XLR to 4pin wireless power supplies from AT that lets me use my wireless lavs as wired.

Here ya go -

Even though it doesn't list the AT899cw specifically it works with any of the body pack mics. I use them all the time with mine. Saves me from having to keep multiple versions of the same mic in the bag.

The AT 8539 power supply does not have a battery option, if that makes a difference.
Alternately, the Tram TR-79 is capable of power via a 1.5v (LR44) battery OR external phantom power source. but that's $180. I don't know if it's available with the AT's type connector though.
