UHF WIRELESS SYSTEM
SYSTEM COMPONENTS
The Shure UHF Wireless microphone system is a frequency–
agile diversity system operating in the UHF band between 782 and
810 MHz (782 to 806 MHz in the U.S.A.). Up to 20 UHF Wireless
systems can be operated simultaneously in a single installation.

microphone, headset, or instrument cable,

FEATURES
• Frequency Agility. All Shure UHF transmitters and receivers can
be programmed for any frequency within the 782 to 810 MHz band,
on 125 kHz centers, for a maximum of 224 frequencies (191 in the
U.S.A.)
• Menu Driven Receiver Display. User–programmable receiver
display shows GROUP, CHANNEL, FREQUENCY, NAME,
SQUELCH LEVEL, and receiver function LOCKED/UNLOCKED status.
• Exclusive Shure MARCAD Circuitry. MARCAD (MAximum
Ratio Combining Audio Diversity) circuitry constantly monitors
signals from both receiver sections and combines them into a
single output signal that is virtually free of noise and dropouts.
• Dual RF Level Meters. Monitor RF signal strength at each antenna, and make it easier to identify “dead spots” as well as other RF
sources.
• Audio Level Meters. Each receiver channel includes a seven–segment audio meter that lets you monitor audio level and helps optimize transmitter gain setting.
• Transmitter Battery Power Meters. Monitor transmitter battery
power level from the transmitter and receiver.
• Tone Key Squelch. Provides audio output only when tone key signal
is present in transmitted signal. This eliminates noise associated with
loss of carrier.
• Group/Channel Configuration. Ensures frequency compatibility and simplifies system installation. Can also be configured by
frequency.
• Network Expansion Capability. A 25–pin serial connector on the
receivers allows future computer control and monitoring.
• Transmitter DC to DC Converter. As battery voltage declines,
system voltage remains constant for worry–free operation.
• Switching 90/230 VAC Internal Power Supply in Receivers.
Eliminates the need for a separate external power supply.
• Independent Headphone Monitor. Lets user adjust monitor volume without changing receiver output levels.
• Transmitter Power On/Frequency Change inhibit Function.
Prevent accidental power interruptions, and changes to transmitter frequency settings.
• Optional U1H High Powered Transmitter . 100 mW or 50 mW
versions of the U1 transmitter are available.
• Optional UA830A Active Remote Antenna Kit (Figure 7). Allows
remote placement of receiver antennas. Amplifies signal by 3 to 10
dB (user adjustable) to offset cable loss.
• Optional UA840A Antenna Distribution System (Figure 4).
Provides connection to up to five receivers, using only two antennas.

ARCHITECTS’ & ENGINEERS’ SPECIFICATIONS
The wireless microphone system shall be a frequency–agile, signal combining diversity system which operates in the UHF band between 782.125 MHz and 809.875 MHz (up to 805.875 MHz in the
U.S.A.). Hand–held transmitters shall include an integral dynamic
or condenser microphone. Body–pack systems shall include either
a lavalier microphone, a headset microphone, or an instrument
cable, depending on the application.
All transmitters shall be digitally synthesized (phase locked loop)
and operate on two (2) AA batteries and shall have a power on/off
switch, an adjustable audio gain control, a digital microprocessor controlled LCD display and 5 segment digital battery fuel gauge. They
shall also feature both power on/off ”lock” as well as frequency–
change inhibit options, set via push–buttons within the battery
compartment.
All receivers shall be digitally synthesized and shall be compatible
with the standard 19” full rack space format. They shall utilize a digital
microprocessor to adjust such parameters as NAME, GROUP/
CHANNEL, FREQUENCY, SQUELCH, and LOCK. All receivers
shall utilize audio combining diversity circuitry which achieves the
best possible signal–to–noise ratio. There shall be two type of receivers available: single channel diversity receivers and dual channel diversity receivers. The receivers shall have front panel LEDs
that indicate RF signal strength, audio level, and diversity operation.
A microprocessor–controlled front panel LCD window display and
controls, as well as headphone monitor and volume controls shall
also be provided. Front panel BNC connectors on the receiver shall
be provided for front–mounting antennas, and a 25–pin serial connector shall be provided on the rear panel to allow future computer
control.
The Shure UHF Wireless microphone system is specified.
