Utah frequency?

i'm looking to buy a Sennheiser Evolution G2 100 from B&H Photo but i didn't want to buy before i was sure of something.

I'm seeing several different frequency ranges for the item... so which one do i choose for Utah? Couldn't find anything via Google or DVinfo.

Thanks for your help.

The Sennheiser website has a "frequency finder" that should tell you what freqs to avoid for Utah.

You can also flip a quarter, and be about as accurate as the Sennheiser charts. Or most other charts for Utah.
Where in Utah are you?

Not really. They can't take into account all the variables, and DTV is a big issue in SLC now. The charts (If I remember correctly) only tell you what the broadcasters are using. No mention of any number of other concerns. For instance, the LDS church isn't considered a broadcaster, but they use 2 channels in SLC.
This is why (I believe) other wireless companies don't do more of this, they know it's mostly snake oil.
Talk to Terry, Chris, Scott, or Craig at Performance Audio on 2300 South/300 West; they sell these things, they'll tell you what I'm telling you.

I have a "B" set of G2 500's. Have found plenty of open frequencies...

yeah i talked to Terry from Performance Audio and i think he said that the B signal is the strongest, but the C signal is the most empty of the 3. He did say they'd get bought eventually and i'm sure they will. I just don't want to find myself with a $500 audio system that becomes useless from all the frequencies getting taken up.

so really the choice is between B and C now...

You can go to the FCC website and find all the licensed brocasters in the area including digital TV. Unlicensed users, like other wireless mics, should not affect you unless they are very close.
