Re: Shure Boat Anchors / illegal MHz

You are indeed out of luck with the radio gear. I checked the frequency allocation chart, and there isn't even a nearby amateur band, so they can't even be donated for a "ham radio" modification project. Of course if you buy an old, decommissioned Nike missile site, and use the underground silo for your studio, the RF would be unlikely to leak out.

There's likely a way to use them with low-voltage unbalanced "plug in power." Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with your particular model so I can't give you any specific advice there. A wiring diagram of the transmitter, or a call to Shure, should give you the answer. As stated above, using them with balanced true phantom (as high as +48) will not be so trivial.

This is summarily untrue and an unnecessary post adding nothing to the discussion.

Re: Shure Boat Anchors / illegal MHz

Most of my 700Mhz gear was AKG, and not very expensive but had worked fantastically for years.

Fortunately the AKG MPAVL adapters are only $69 each so I did spend that money to convert the two nice lav elements to wired. All the others were handheld systems, so if anybody needs the D880 heads let me know.

I was able to completely upgrade all the 700Mhz systems with new Audio-Technica gear since it was a legal issue and not just a case of "wanting" new wireless systems. A true drop in the bucket compared to many of the multi-million dollar facility capital upgrades going on at the same time in my company.
