PERSONAL PA® T35 Transmitter
System Overview
The PPA T35 is an FM Wide-Band / Narrow-Band transmitter operating in the 72-76MHz bandwidth. Compatible Williams
Sound receivers include PPA R37, PPA R35-8 and the PPA R1600 remote speaker.
Developed for hearing assistance in places of public access, the PPA T35 is designed for those who need help overcoming
background noise, reverberation, or distance from the sound source. It includes a complete audio processor optimized for the
needs of hearing impaired persons and is easily integrated with your existing sound system. The PPA T35 can also be used with
a microphone as a stand-alone system.
Your PPA T35 transmitter operates just like an FM radio station. The transmitter takes audio directly from a microphone or sound
system. This audio is then broadcast over an FM radio signal. FM radios can be worn by listeners or AC powered amplified
speaker with built in radio can be utilized as needed. The broadcast can be received up to 1000ft from the transmitter *. This
allows listeners to sit anywhere in the area and listen to the broadcast at the level they need without disturbing others around
them.
Please read through this manual carefully. It includes important setup procedures and guidelines for proper operation. If at any
time you are having problems with this product, please contact Williams Sound toll free for assistance: 800-843-3544.
NOTE: FCC regulations, section 15.21, requires the user to comply with the rules of transmitter operation. Any changes or
modifications made by the user not expressly approved for compliance may result in the loss of all privileges and
authority to operate the equipment.
*Range is dependant upon the environment.

The performance of the T35 is optimized for each selected application. Using the menu control buttons on the front of the
T35 (Figure 2), press the “ v ” button to access the “Application Presets” LCD screen. Press the “+” and “-” menu buttons to
alternate between Hearing Assist, Music and Voice selection. When the desired Application Preset is displayed, press the “Set”
button to save the change into memory.
5. Configure the T35 for the appropriate audio source. Using the menu control buttons on the front of the T35 (Figure 2), press the
“ v ” button to access the “Audio Source” LCD screen. Using the “+” and “-” menu buttons (Figure 2), choose between MIC,
SIMPLEX-MIC, or LINE. When the desired audio input is displayed, press the “Set” button to save the change into memory.
Lastly, connect the audio source to the audio input jack in the rear of the T35 transmitter.
6. With the audio source playing, adjust the Audio Level control on the T35 so that the green “0 dB” LED generally lights and the
red “+9 dB” LED lights occasionally: Press the Audio Level “+” button to increase the audio level in .5dB steps. Press the Audio
Level “-” button to decrease the audio level in .5dB steps. See Figure 2.
7. The T35 is shipped from the factory in wideband mode with the frequency set to 72.900 MHz. To change the frequency or bandwidth
on the T35, refer to the instructions on page 14.
8. Listen with an FM receiver (see pages 20-21 for compatible Williams Sound receivers). Install the batteries, plug in the
earphone, turn on the receiver and walk around the listening area. The signal should be clear and quite loud when the volume is
turned up.
IMPORTANT: The FM receiver being used with the T35 transmitter will need to be on the same frequency and
bandwidth as the transmitter. To change receiver channels, see pages 20-21.
Please read through this manual carefully for detailed instructions and setup procedures.

Setting up the PPA T35 - Detailed Instructions
Select a Location
The transmitter is usually located near the sound system amplifier or mixer for easy access to an audio output signal. Position the
transmitter on a level surface. It should be free from metallic objects that might interfere with the antenna signal.
For permanent installation, the PPA T35 transmitter can be rack mounted. Use the Williams Sound RPK 005 or RPK 006 rack
mount kits. Make sure there is good electrical contact between the transmitter chassis and the rack cabinet.
Install the ANT 025 Whip Antenna
NOTE: If the T35 is going to be rack mounted, you will not be able to install the ANT 025 whip antenna. For rack mounting,
consider installing a remote antenna (see following section).
The PPA T35 is shipped standard with a single ANT 025 whip antenna. The ANT 025 threads on to a stud recessed in a hole
on the top of the transmitter. Screw the antenna clockwise until the connection is secure (Figure 3). Do not use excessive force
to tighten the antenna. The antenna length must NOT exceed 28 inches when fully extended. It was found during test that the
antenna length, when the length was greater than 28 inches, the device failed the radiated emissions. It FAILED with the longer
length.

Multi–Channel Sources
By constructing a simple resistive mixer, stereo (or 3 channel) sources can be connected to the T35. Additional channels can be
accommodated by adding a resistor for each source. Necessary resistors can be obtained from Williams Sound (Part Number
RFC 472) or from any local electronics parts supplier. See Figure 5.
Selecting an Audio source Appropriate for Hearing Impaired Listeners
If the T35 is going to be used specifically for the accommodation of hearing impaired listeners, we recommend following these
general guidelines:
The PPA T35 transmits audio with excellent fidelity. Therefore, the audio source signal should be of the highest audio quality
and not subject to a compressor, limiter, reverberation, or other signal processing equipment. The T35 has an effective audio
processor. If compression is desired in the audio, refer to page 16-17 for features and controls. Excessive compression is not
helpful to the hearing impaired and can contribute to excessive noise in the receiver outputs.
The T35 audio source signal is usually connected to a mixer’s “line output” signal which is behind the mixer’s parametric equalizers
but ahead of any equalization used for house loudspeakers.
If audio delay is available for use in large auditoriums, it’s usually best to use it. Because radio signals travel faster than sound,
delaying the transmitted audio so that an average listener (in the middle of the listening area) hears the transmitted audio a few
milliseconds after audio from the main sound reinforcement system speaker is helpful. This will also help audience members who
lip read.

Avoiding Hum in the Audio (as a Result of a Ground Loop)
A hum created by a ground loop can often be eliminated by connecting a capacitor in series with the audio line shield to the
transmitter’s ground. This method also maintains good RF shielding. Determining the effectiveness of this method for your
installation usually requires some experimentation. See Figure 6.

IMPORTANT: Listen to the transmitted audio through the headphone jack, especially
when deciding on an appropriate high pass filter. This is a good way to ensure the
listening audience is going to receive the highest audio quality.
Compression is typically used for voice and hearing assistance applications. It reduces the dynamic range: For a listener who has
difficulty hearing the quiet sounds of an audio broadcast, compression will boost the quiet sounds to louder listening levels. For
listening to music programs, concerts, etc., lower compression ratios or no compression is generally used.
The Compressor Slope has the following selectable compression ratios:1:1 and 2:1
NOTE: The T35 is shipped from the factory at a 1:1 compression ratio (no compression).
To select a compression ratio:
1. Press the “ v ” menu button (Figure 11) to select the LCD “Compressor Slope” (M7) screen.
2. Press the “+” menu button to increase the compression to 2:1. This produces generally loud out put, even at very low
audio level signals.
Press the left “-” menu button to decrease the compression to 1:1, which is no compression.
3. When the desired compression ratio is displayed, press the “Set” button to save the change into memory. No additional
action is necessary.
NOTE: The installer of the T35 needs to take care in using compression, because some hearing impaired people cannot
tolerate as loud of a sound as those with normal hearing.

Compressor Gain (M8)
The T35 has two selectable modes of compressor gain: Normal and Reduced. For applications such as music and voice, where
high audio quality is desirable, Reduced is the recommended mode of operation. Reduced compression gain minimizes the
amount of low input level boost and alteration in the sound which compression can cause.
For hearing assistance or applications where the transmitting message is critical for listening, the T35 can be set to Normal
Compression gain. Normal compression gain boosts the “soft” audio sounds for a more understandable, consistent delivery.
This may be appropriate for applications where the listening audience has moderate to severe hearing loss. Compression
is generally not desirable for applications such as music, concerts, etc. In this case, compression can be turned off by setting the
compression “slope” to 1:1.
NOTE: The T35 is shipped from the factory in the Reduced mode.
To select Reduced or Normal Compression:
1. Press the “ v ” menu button (Figure 11) to access the LCD “Compressor Gain” (M8) screen.
2. Press the “+” or “-” menu buttons to select between Reduced and Normal compressor gain.
3. When the desired compressor gain is displayed, press the “Set” button to save the change into memory.
No additional action is necessary. After 30 seconds of inactivity, the LCD screen will return to the
default display.
NOTE: The installer must take care in using compression. Compression may contribute to excessive noise in the listener’s
receivers.
IMPORTANT: Listen to the transmitted audio through the headphone jack, especially
when deciding on an appropriate high pass filter. This is a good way to ensure the
listening audience is going to receive the highest audio quality.

RF Output (M9)
The T35 has three selectable transmitter power levels: FULL, MEDIUM, LOW POWER, or OFF AIR. By default the T35 is set to
“Full” power mode. For general listening applications, FULL power is the preferred mode of operation. “Full power” provides the
T35 with an operating range of up to 1000 ft.
For special listening applications, it may be desirable to reduce the overall operating range on the T35 if:
1) The audio transmission is to be contained to a “smaller” listening area; 2) The signal is too strong and it is overloading the
receiver; or 3) Multiple T35 transmitters are used in adjacent classrooms where the FM signals overlap each other. In these
cases, the power level on the T35 can be reduced to MEDIUM or LOW. The RF output may be set to OFF AIR (no power) to help
troubleshoot interfering or overlapping RF signals.
To select a power level:
1. Press the “ v ” menu button (Figure 12) to access the “RF Output” (M9) screen.
2. Press the “+” and “-” menu button to select between: FULL POWER, MEDIUM POWER, LOW POWER and OFF AIR.
3. When the desired power level is displayed, press the “Set” button to save the change into memory.
No additional action is necessary. After 30 seconds of inactivity, the LCD screen will return to the default display, where the
selected power level will be displayed.

Troubleshooting
The T35 “On Air” Indicator is not on
• Make sure the transformer (TFP 016) is plugged into the transmitter and any remote power switch is on.
• Make sure the electrical outlet is on.
• Make sure the power button on the front of the T35 is pressed to the “on” position.
• Make sure the 24 VAC power supply is working.
• Make sure the RF output is not set to “OFF AIR.”
No Audio heard in Phones jack
• Check to see if there is a signal coming from your audio source. Check and correct your audio source if necessary.
• Check to see if the Headphone Volume Level has been turned all the way down. If so, increase it.
• Check to see if there is an incorrect or defective connection from your audio source. See page 7 for detailed connection
instructions.
Noise or Distortion in the Audio
• Check to see if there is noise in the audio source. To find out, disconnect the audio cable. If the noise disappears your noise
problem is in the source. Correct or repair your audio source.
• Perhaps the Audio Source control is not set to match your audio source input device. See page 15 to properly configure the Audio
Source control menu.
• Check to see if the Audio Input level is set too high. If the “input overload” is illuminated, then the audio level needs to be adjusted.
See page 10.
• Check for ground loops or noise on the input signal. See page 9 for more information. Call your Authorized Williams Sound
dealer or representative.
Noise in audio “grows” when program is silent
• The Audio Level Control may be set too high. You’re probably also seeing the +6 level indicator lighting all the time. To correct,
adjust the Audio Level control on the front of the T35. See page 10.
• It could be that the T35 Audio Processor is set for Normal Compression, which may be inappropriate for the type of program
being transmitted. Reset the Compressor Gain control to off. See page 17.
• It could be that the T35 Compressor Slope ratio is set to 2:1, which may be inappropriate for the type of program being
transmitted. Reset the Compression Slope control to 1:1. See page 16.
Reception (at receiver) difficulties
NOTE: Be sure to listen to the audio transmission on the T35 phone jack prior to checking the receiver reception.
No Reception
• Check to see if the antenna on the T35 has been disconnected. If so, attach the antenna correctly.
• Check to see if the RF output power on the T35 is set to “OFF.” If so, reset the RF Output control to FULL, MEDIUM or LOW
power. See page 18.
• Make sure the FM receiver is ON. Make sure the batteries are properly installed (observing proper polarity). If the batteries are
rechargeable, it may be necessary to charge the batteries overnight.
• Make sure the FM receiver is operating on the same frequency as the T35. Make sure the receiver is operating on the same
bandwidth as the T35: Wideband or Narrowband. Follow tuning instruction for the receiver and adjust accordingly.
24
MAN 160D
PERSONAL PA® T35 Transmitter
Insufficient range, good reception near transmitter, poor at a distance
• Check to see if the transmitting antenna was installed incorrectly. If so, correct or replace the antenna. The signal should be clearly
audible up to at least a 100-foot distance with the ANT 005 or ANT 025.
• Make sure the transmitting antenna is not in an unsuitable location. Perhaps the transmitting antenna was installed inside a
metal enclosure or is separated from the reception area by electrically conducting objects. (i.e., steel stud walls, heating ducts,
substantial structural steel, or 2x2 or 2x4 ceiling grid.) In either case, reinstall the antenna according to installation instructions,
locating it outside metal enclosures and away from electrically conducting objects.
• Perhaps there is a strong interfering signal. If so, make sure the transmitter and antenna are correctly installed. Set the transmitter
to FULL power output. If this does not solve the problem, try operating the transmitter on a different frequency. If operating the
T35 in wideband mode, try switching to narrow band operation (see page 14). Narrowband operation is more resistant to outside
interference.
Users must turn receiver volume controls way up (to 4 or 5) to get enough volume
• Perhaps there is insufficient audio level. If so, the audio level indicator will read too low because the audio level control is set
incorrectly on the transmitter. Correct the Audio Level control setting. See page 10.
• It could be that the audio input is not configured for the audio source being used. If not, correct the setting of the Audio Source
control menu. See page 15.
• Some users may not be helped by this system. Severe hearing loss may require using the system with a telecoil coupler (i.e.,
Neckloop) and personal hearing aid.
• Check your batteries. For non-rechargeable (alkaline) batteries, they may need replaced. If you are using rechargeable batteries,
make sure the batteries are fully charged prior to use.
Users complain of too much noise during soft audio. Dynamic range of music reduced too greatly.
• Check to see if the Audio Level control is set too high. This problem is more likely to occur in Normal Compression mode, but can
also occur in Reduced Compression mode. To reduce this noise, adjust the Audio Level, carefully noting the Level Indicator. The
+6 LED should light occasionally.
• Perhaps the transmitter is set for Normal Compression when Reduced Compression would be more suitable, given the program
material. If so, set the Compressor Gain control to Reduced Compression. See page 17.

PERSONAL PA® T35 Transmitter
Buzz in other equipment when transmitter is on or off
• This is not an RF problem. Instead, it is likely caused by incorrect audio connections, a ground loop, or defective equipment. To
remedy, use proper audio wiring practice to make connections described on page 8.
Buzz or other noise in equipment only when transmitter is on
• This is likely an RF–induced disturbance in the other equipment. To remedy, try these steps in order until the buzz is eliminated:
1. Make certain the transmitter chassis is connected to the equipment cabinet rails. Buzz/hum in system may be experienced
when the T35 chassis is insufficiently grounded. In this case, install a ground wire to the T35 chassis and terminate to a
known good ground source.
2. Make sure antenna connections are secure.
3. Set the T35 Transmitter to MEDIUM power output on the RF Power menu choice.
4. Install transmitter at a distance from sensitive equipment.
5. Use a remote antenna (ANT 005 or ANT 024).
6. Make sensitive equipment more immune to RFI/EMI. The manufacturers of your audio equipment may offer application
notes for this purpose. Williams Sound offers a document giving suggestions for improving RF immunity in existing audio
equipment (Technical Bulletin: Buzz Or Hum In The Sound System, FRM 531).
