DIVERSITY WIRELESS BY ANCHOR AUDIO
Anchor Audio UHF wireless is a 16 channel, diversity wireless system that receives
signals with two independent antennae. With diversity wireless the receiver processes
the stronger signal, effectively minimizing dropouts and interference from other
transmitting sources. The antennae are mounted internally so there are no obstructions
or risk of damage.
