The frequency range of the antennas should match the receiver
and transmitter of the base station. Match the color code on
the antenna with the color code on the base station.

ANTENNAS SHOULD BE VERTICAL
Attach the transmit 1/2-wave antenna to the antenna input receptacle labeled “Transmit” on the right side of the rear panel.
The antenna should be vertically aligned.
Figure 9
Vertically Polarized Antennas
Distance between Antennas
The distance between the base station’s receive and transmit
antennas is not adjustable when the antennas are connected directly on the back of the unit.
The antennas can be remoted for better signal path. A Telex
coax assembly with remote antennas may be required. See
“Accessory” section for ordering information.
NOTE: If your base station is to be located in a shielded rack
mount enclosure or other poor RF location, you must remote
the 1/2-wave antennas with coax assemblies. See “Accessories
and Replacement Parts” section for remote mounting hardware.
Antenna Placement
Figure 7
Attaching Transmit 1/2-Wave Antenna
Proper antenna placement probably has the most effect on
your TELEX Wireless Intercom System’s overall performance. The following suggestions will result in optimum performance.
Attach the receive 1/2-wave antenna to the antenna input receptacle labeled “Receive” on the left side of the rear panel.
The antenna should be vertically aligned.
Proper placement of the beltpack can be critical. The antennas
should be in the open. Bending the antennas up and placing
the beltpack in a pocket, etc., will reduce system distance.
It is suggested that the unit be worn on the belt or pocket with
both antenna’s vertical for best operating range and performance.

Attaching Receive 1/2-Wave Antenna
Antenna Polarization
The Telex Wireless Intercom System is “Vertically Polarized”.
This means both the transmitting and receiving antennas
should operate in the vertical position.
Figure 10
Proper Dressing of the Antennas
4-2
Attempting to operate the wireless intercom system through or
around walls, ceilings, metal objects, etc. will reduce system
range and performance.
Keep the distance between the base station and the beltacks as
short as possible. The greater the distance, the weaker the signal. Make sure the “signal paths” between the base station and
beltpacks are unobstructed. You should be able to visibly locate the base station antennas at all times for best performance.

DO NOT - mount the base station 1/2-wave antennas on, or
next to metal, such as beams, walls with metal studs, equipment racks, etc. This also applies to the antennas when assembled directly to the Base Station. This will “detune” the
antennas which can result in noise or loss of RF signal at the
Base Station, see Figure 13.

Antenna Placement
Improving Reception and Increasing
Range
The base station is supplied with two antennas. This should
provide satisfactory system performance in most applications.
System range can be enhanced by remoting the 1/2-wave antennas.
Keeping the distance from the base station and beltpack as
short, and unobstructed as possible will produce the most reliable performance.

Location
Transmit Switches
Locate the base station with the front and rear of the unit accessible so that switches may be set and connections made.
Place the transmit and receive antennas on the base station.
Make sure the antenna’s color band match the color dot near
each antenna. See “Antenna Information” section for more information on choosing a proper operating location.
There are two switches located on the lower left side of the rear
panel. The upper switch sets the transmit power level to high or
normal. The lower switch turns the transmitter on or off.
Transmit Power
Set the power level to normal if using the beltpacks at
cl os e t o m edi um di s t ances ( < 200 f e e t , 1 6 1 m ,
line-of-sight) from the base station. Set the power level to
high if using the beltpacks at a distance (>200 feet, 161m,
line-of-sight) from the base station.
Power Connection
Plug the supplied power cord into the unit. The base station has
an IEC power receptacle that accepts 100 – 240VAC, 50 – 60Hz.
The specific receptacle type is an IEC 320/C14/3PIN. The cord it
accepts is a C13. These cords are common and available through
many retail hardware/electronic stores if the cord is lost.
On/Off
Set the transmitter switch to on for normal use. In the off
position the base station transmitter is disabled. Setting
the switch to off will disables all the beltpacks from hearing anyone else or even their own sidetone.

Intercom Switch
Intercom Interface
The Radiocom™ wireless system can be interfaced to RTS
TW, Audiocom® (Telex), Clearcom®, RTS matrix and other
intercom (I/C) systems. Set the Intercom switch on the rear of
the unit to the appropriate system and connect the system to
the base station. The intercom channel on the rear of the base
station has loop-thru male and female XLR connections for
two-wire systems and a RJ-11 type jack for four-wire systems.
Telex (Audiocom®) and Clearcom® intercom systems require
one cable for intercom. This interfacing is done through the
I/C 3 pin XLR connectors on the rear of the unit.
RTS TW intercoms also only need to connect one 3 pin cable
to one of the two intercom XLR connectors. Two channels of
audio are carried on one cable for RTS. RTS channel 1 is
placed on the intercom normally. Switch the rear panel I/C
switch to Clearcom® to interface only to RTS audio channel
2. Once again, leave it in RTS to interface to only RTS audio
Channel 1.
This switch only affects the two-wire intercom systems. The
functions of the I/C XLRs change depending on the intercom
selected. Please see Section 11 for pinout information of the
different two-wire intercom systems.
Four wire intercom systems require only one cable for the intercom to interface four wire intercom to the base station. This
interfacing is done through the I/C RJ-11 type jacks on the
rear of the unit. See Figure 16 for the pinout of the RJ-11
jacks.

The beltpack comes with two detachable, screw type, ¼ wave
antennas. To attach the two antennas, screw into the receptacles at the bottom of the beltpack. The color dot on the screw
end of the antenna must match the color dot on antenna receptacle. The longest antenna is the receiver antenna. It screws
into the left receptacle if the beltpack is laying flat with the
battery compartment face up and the antenna receptacles facing you. The other antenna is the transmit antenna. New antennas can be ordered if desired, see the “Accessories” section.
Insert the headset plug into the XLR connector. See the headset pinout in the “TR-700 beltpack controls and connections”
section if this is not a Telex headset. A dynamic or electret
headset microphone is automatically detected by the beltpack
and a bias voltage supplied if needed.

System Operation
Frequency Plan Overview
System Quick Start
The BTR/TR-700 has 36 factory defined frequency groups
and 12 user-programmable frequency groups. A Group defines the base station transmit frequency and thus the receive
frequency on all the beltpacks. A Channel defines a base station receive frequency and thus a beltpack transmit frequency.
A base station receive channel that does not have a frequency
set for it will have a dash to the right of it on the Group/Channel select screen. Details on setting frequencies may be found
in the “BTR-700 Menu Structure” and “TR-700 Menu Structure” instructions in this section.
Follow the list below to quickly get a base station and
beltpack(s) operating. When completed the user should have a
base station and 1 to 4 beltpacks up and running with full operational ability. The base station will be on Group 01A with its
four receivers on channels 01, 02, 03 and 04. Each beltpack will
be on Group 01A with a unique transmit channel number
matching one of the base station receive channels.
1. Plug-in the base station via the supplied power cord and
connect the antennas. The color dots on the base should
match the color rings on the antennas.
Factory-Defined Groups
2. Base station rear panel switches: Transmit power set to
High and on.
The 36 factory-defined groups were carefully chosen to avoid
certain intermod products and various other possible sources
of interference. The Groups are set and cannot be changed.
There is a limited number of channels which can be chosen
from within these groups.
3. Ensure base station rear panel IC switch matches attached
wired intercom system. If used stand alone or connected to
a 4-wire system then IC switch position is Not Applicable.
4. Press [MENU] as powering-up the base station. This will
place it on group 01A and set the receives on channels: 01,
02, 03, and 04.
The first 24 factory-defined groups (01A – 12B) are “pair”
groups that can be used for single (up to 4 beltpacks) and dual
(up to 8 beltpacks) BTR-700 systems. They are arranged 01A,
01B, 02A, 02B…011B, 012A, 012B. A “pair” group, like 1A
and 1B, have different base station transmit frequencies, however, they both have the same eight base station receive channels from which to choose. Each channel represents a unique
frequency. For example, one BTR-700 could be set on Group
02A and channels 01, 02, 03 and 04. The other BTR-700
could be set on Group 02B channels 05, 06, 07 and 08. As
long as the channels are different, everything should be fine.
5. Place the front panel IC “IN” and “OUT” level controls in
the 12:00 o’clock position. Check that front panel IC is in
2-wire for AudioCom (Telex), RTS - TW and ClearCom
wired systems, and 4-wire for RTS Matrix and stand-alone
operation.
6. Place batteries in the beltpacks.
7. Remove the rear switch cover on the beltpacks. Set the
beltpack rear panel slide switch to push-to-talk (PT
TALK).
The next 12 groups (13 – 24) are single groups that primarily
are used for single (up to 4 beltpacks) BTR-700 systems. The
number of channels from which to choose from in these
groups will vary from group to group.
8. Press [MENU] as powering-up each beltpack. This will
place the beltpack on group 01A with the channel 01
flashing.
9. Use the [UP] and [DOWN] arrow buttons to change the
channel to match a channel on the base station. Then press
[SET]. If leaving on channel, just press [MENU]. Each
beltpack should have a unique channel number.
User-Programmable Groups
The 12 user-programmable groups are initially empty. The
transmit and receive frequencies are fully editable within these
groups. In fact, factory-defined groups may be copied to
user-programmable groups and then edited if desired. See the
“BTR-700 Menu Structure” and “TR-700 Menu Structure” instructions in this section for details on how to copy and edit
frequencies.
10. The group/channel on the beltpack should now match the
group and a receive channel on the base station. Nothing
should be flashing on the beltpack screens.
11. Plug headsets into the beltpacks and set the microphone
gain so the BAT/OM LED will flash at the beginning of
most words at normal speech levels.

Power
Intercom Select Button - Press the [SELECT] button to
choose between 2-wire or 4-wire intercom systems. The
green LED will indicate the current mode of the intercom
channel. If the base station is connected to a 2-wire system, such as Audiocom (Telex), RTS TW or Clearcom,
set the intercom to 2-wire. If it is connected to a
four-wire system, such as RTS Matrix, set the intercom to
4-wire. The selection is retained in non-volatile memory,
so it will come-up where last left if the unit is power cycled.
If you have followed the instructions in Section 4, “Initial
Equipment Set-Up”, you should now be ready to turn the base
station on.
Set the base station power switch to the on position, by pushing the top of the switch.The internal cooling fan will start immediately and the LCD display and front panel indicator lights
will come on in five or six seconds.
Local Headset
Talk Button - Press to enable the audio path from the local
headset. The TALK/O.M. LED will turn green when audio
is enabled. A quick press and release latches on the button.
If the talk function is latched on, pressing the talk button
again will turn it off. If the local headset is not being used,
the talk button should be off. This keeps additional noise
out of the system.
In Level Control - Adjusts the audio level of the wired
intercom system’s input to the base station.
Out Level Control - Adjusts the audio level of the base
station’s output to the wired intercom system.
If the base station is used stand-alone, no wired intercom system connected, it must be set in the 4-wire mode. The 2-wire
mode requires a wired intercom system or appropriate load be
connected to the intercom. If not loaded, a large gain increase
will take place in the unload intercom channel which may be
high enough to produce a loud “howling” sound.
Microphone Gain - Adjusts the headset’s microphone
gain. Adjust so the TALK/O.M. LED flashes from green
to red on loudest speech.
Volume - Adjust the volume to the headset by rotating the volume control as required for a comfortable listening volume.
Auxiliary
Portable Station Connect
Auxiliary Input Select Button - Press the [SELECT]
button to turn on or off the auxiliary input to the base station. The selection is retained in non-volatile memory, so
it will come-up where last left if the unit is power cycled.
Select the audio paths from the base station’s four receivers that
you wish to enable. The corresponding LED above the select
button is on when the audio path is enabled. If a beltpack user
has their portable station connect path off at the base, that user
will no longer hear their sidetone and their audio will not be
passed to anyone. The user will still be able to hear everyone.
The selection is retained in non-volatile memory, so it will
come-up where last left if the unit is power cycled.
In Level Control - Adjusts the audio level of the wired
auxiliary system’s input to the base station.
Out Level Control - Adjusts the audio level of the base
station’s output to the auxiliary XLR plug.
Always disable unused audio receive paths. This reduces the
chances that external RF noise can get onto the audio buses
via an open receiver.
The auxiliary output is always available at the back panel output XLR. It cannot be switch on or off like the input. Both the
input and output are balanced audio ports.

When the beltpack power is turned on by rotating the knob,
the BAT/OM LED will flash once if the battery is good. If the
LED stays on, the battery is low. If the LED does not flash,
the battery is dead.
Microphone Gain
Adjusts the headset’s microphone gain. Adjust so the TALK/OM
LED flashes red at the beginning of most words at normal speech
levels. If the input is too large, the LED will be red during the
complete word at normal speech level. The peak-responding audio limiter in the beltpack is very tolerant of high input audio levels. Even when the microphone gain is maximized, and headset
volume reduced to make up for the louder audio, the audio will
still sound good and not clipped.

System Walk-Thru
Now that you have successfully “set-up” your Telex Wireless
Intercom System and turned on any auxiliary equipment, you
are ready to test the overall performance by “Walking” the
Telex system through the areas in which you will be using it.
The “system walk-thru” can detect problem of weak signal
strength caused by:
Before you begin your walk-thru, check the following:
❒
❒
❒
❒
❒
❒
Beltpack Battery Check.
Set microphone gain in both the beltpack(s) and the
base station.
The base station and beltpack(s) are on the same group
and the beltpack(s) are on their own unique transmit
channels that match the base station receive channels
•
Poor antenna location
•
Wrong antenna for receiver and/ or transmitter
•
RF “Trouble Spots”
•
Operating distance beyond system capability.
•
Old or used batteries in the TR-700.
Under normal conditions the base station’s display will indicate
a beltpack status. “Weak Signal” condition will result in “no tx”
being displayed on the base station’s receiver for that beltpack.
Check that the talk button is engaged. The talk LED
will be illuminated.
In 99% of all instances you will set up your Telex Wireless Intercom System, walk it through the area of interest and
achieve error-free performance. If in the rare instance your
Telex system does not “pass” during your walk-thru evaluation, refer to the section of this manual which deals with System Troubleshooting.
Intercom Level “IN” and “OUT” are set to an appropriate level.
Auxiliary Level “IN” and “OUT” are set to an appropriate level (if used).

Troubleshooting
Reread the sections of this manual to make sure you have
completed system set-up properly.
If you are unable to solve the problem, contact the dealer from
whom you purchased the system for assistance
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
DISTORTION - System’s audio quality seems distorted
at medium to high input levels.
Reduce microphone gain by adjusting microphone gain
control.
HISS - System seems to produce a “hiss” which is
undesirable.
Check the gain setting on all beltpacks and the base. They
may be too low or too high. Check to make sure you are
still well within range of the base station
LOW OUTPUT - System produces a low output level.
Check the gain setting on both the beltpacks and the base.
They may be too low.
FEEDBACK - Moving around area of use produces
“squeal” or “howl” in various locations using ext.
speakers.
Reduce the gain settings on both the beltpacks and the
base. They may be too high.
DROPOUTS - When moving around the area of use there
seems to be locations where the signal “swooshes” or
completely disappears.
Make sure both antennas on the base and beltpack are
connected and follow the location suggestions. Change the
location of the base unit and antennas or avoid the bad
areas with the remote beltpacks.
INTERFERENCE - System picks up signals other than
wireless Intercoms.
Make sure that all the Telex beltpack(s) are on. If there are
any unused receivers at the base, turn the audio off from
those receivers by deselecting the appropriate “Portable
Station Connect” button.
If problems persist with the beltpack on, you will probably
need to change the group. Make sure the base and
beltpack match after any Group/Channel change.
Check Transmitter switch on base and beltpack. Check
talk LED to make sure is is on. Make sure beltpack
batteries are OK.
NO AUDIO from BASE or BELTPACK headsets.

Tech Tips
Frequency Interaction
Unfortunately, radio frequency (RF) channels cannot be randomly selected for use in radio devices. They must be selected
to avoid known frequencies in use, FCC restrictions on the location of devices, and even interference between your own RF
devices. The factory defined frequencies (Groups 01A-24) selected by Telex for this RadioCom™ system are chosen to
minimum possible interference.
Figure 23 displays the same gain setting as in Figure 22 but
brought into a high noise environment. The user’s voice now
lights the OM indicator all the time he or she speaks due to the
higher noise plus the user speaking louder. The result on the
system is distortion on louder speech. The microphone gain
must be reduced. The same applies to a user with a powerful
voice. If someone sets the system mic gain to their voice and
user has a much stronger voice, then the gain will need to be
reduced, even if the background noise is the same.
Microphone Gain Adjustment
The microphone gain controls on the base station and beltpack
are set to mid-levels by the factory. In most cases this setting
will w ork fine and only on loud speech wi l l t he
overmodulation (OM) indicator light. However, in environments where the background noise is loud or the user has a
strong/quiet voice, the gain control will need to be adjusted. In
Figure 22 the gain is set correctly. The user’s root-mean-square
(RMS) sound level is well below the OM threshold and only
on peaks does his or her voice flash the OM indicator light.
Always remember to set the microphone gain based on the situation and location in which the equipment will be used. If the
equipment is used on the field during a football game, set the
gain based upon a loud stadium, NOT the quiet stadium 2
hours before a game. If a production studio user has a quiet
voice, set the gain to their voice and NOT the stage hand’s
loud voice who helped set up the system.

All claims of defect or shortage should be sent to the above address. When returning items for service,
you must provide date and proof of purchase, such as a copy of the sales receipt, to establish warranty.
A letter should be included outlining all symptoms and claimed defects. Information on how the equipment was installed and used is very helpful. Please include your phone number and return address in
case our service technicians need to contact you.
Units that have been modified cannot be accepted for repair.
Include all information requested by the Service Department. Then pack the unit as follows:
Check the unit to see that all parts and screws are in place. Then wrap it in heavy paper or put it in a plastic bag. If the original carton is not available, place the unit in a strong carton that is at least six inches bigger in all three dimensions than the unit. Fill the carton equally around the unit with resilient packing
material (shredded paper, foam, etc.). Seal it with gummed paper tape, tie it with a strong cord, and ship it
by prepaid express, United Parcel Service or insured parcel post to the Telex Service Department.
It is very important that the shipment be well-packed and fully insured. Damage claims must be settled
between you and the carrier and this can delay repair and return of the unit to you.
Telex reserves the right to make changes in design and improvement on its product without assuming
any obligation to install the same on any of its products previously manufactured. Further Telex reserves the right to ship new and/or improved products which are similar to the form, fit and function of
products originally ordered.
