wireless mic set up?

I am a wedding videographer. I own a Sennhesiser EK 100 G2 and a SK100 G2 wireless mic. It hasnít happened yet but my fear is getting to a venue and finding out (under pressure) that I have interference with the house or DJís cordless systems. What steps should I take at each venue to rest my mind assured that I will not have any other interference. Please be as specific as you can with the answer.

Thank You

Practice using the gear before getting into an under pressure gig.

There's nothing worse than being under the gun and fidgeting around trying to figure out something while the action is going down. At the very least you'll want to learn how to switch Banks and how to perform an AutoScan.

This question kept popping up so I asked if our Sennheiser rep could come in and give us the scoop (we're a Sennheiser dealer). We then translated their standard issue techy geek training into something everyone can understand.

The video is available online and it's called "Sennheiser Wireless G2 Tutorial". You can find it in Flash Format at http://dvgeartalk.com/
In QuickTime at http://dvestore.com/theatre/index.html

In addition to Guy's excellent advice & Senn. 100G2 tutorial:

Always monitor what you're recording - you need to have the headphones on to know what you've got. Even without someone else's wireless nearby, interference or an equipment problem can crop up any time

no worry's about interferring the frequency as long you set the BANK channel(receiver). for instance go to the BANK and you can see there are few no. of channel and if choose the one channel you can see again it has 4 different frequency choose one and then set the same in transmiter.

here is the link
