Passive Omnidirectional Antenna
General Description
The Shure UA860V is a passive, ground-reference omnidirectional VHF antenna for use with VHF wireless systems.
Omnidirectional dipole reception pattern
Integrated microphone stand adapter
Includes UA8-174-216 antenna, thread adapter, and a 3m (10ft) coaxial
antenna cable
Greatly improves reception of wireless signal
Choose a location for installing the antenna that follows the proper
guidelines for cabling and antenna placement.
Cable Maintenance
Connect the provided UA8 antenna to the top plate of the UA860V.
To maintain top performance for antenna cables:
Connect the UA860V to the receiver or antenna distribution system.
Avoid sharp bends or kinks in the cables.
Mount the UA860V to a microphone stand. For best performance, keep
the antenna upright and the grounding plate horizontal.
Do not deform cables with makeshift clamps, such as bending a nail over
the cable.
Do not use in permanent outdoor installations.
Do not expose to extreme moisture.
Selecting Antenna Cables
Use 50 ohm low-loss coaxial cable, such as RG-8U. Shure offers pre-terminated antenna cables ranging from 6 to 100 feet.
UA860V Installation
Antenna Placement
Use the following guidelines when mounting antennas:
Receivers, amplifiers, and other accessories must be rated for use within
the same frequency range as the antenna.
Mount antennas at least one wavelength (1.75 m) apart.
Keep antennas away from metal objects.
Position antennas so there is nothing obstructing a line of sight to the
transmitter (including the audience).
Place antennas as close as possible to transmitter, such as to the side
of the stage (instead of a front of house location).

For cable runs exceeding 50 feet (15 meters), an in-line amplifier (Shure
UA834) might be necessary to compensate for signal loss.
Important: Always perform a "walk around" test to verify coverage before
using a wireless system during a speech or performance. Experiment with
antenna placement to find the optimum location. If necessary, mark "trouble
spots" and ask presenters or performers to avoid those areas.
