If you are using a Bodypack system with a Shure lavalier microphone or instrument adapter, plug the microphone
cable or instrument adapter cable into the transmitter input connector, as shown in Figure 21.
NOTE: The wiring of the input connector on the transmitter is designed for Shure microphones.
FIGURE 21
Turning the Transmitter On
NOTE: DO NOT turn on the transmitter before powering up the receiver. Once the receiver has located an
open frequency, turn the transmitter on and set it to that receiver frequency. Turning the transmitter
on first will interfere with the receiver’s frequency scanning function.
1. Slide the transmitter ON/OFF switch to the ON position, as shown in Figure 22. The power LED will momentarily glow
red, then change to a steady green. The default frequency setting (Channel 1, Group 1) will appear on the display.
FIGURE 22

Checking Transmitter Battery Power
With the transmitter turned on, observe the Battery Level icon on the display. The number of shaded bars on the icon indicate
the approximate amount of battery life remaining, as shown in Figure 23.
NOTE: Stated battery life is based on a 9V alkaline battery. For details on other battery types, refer to the
“Battery Life” paragraph, or go to the Shure web site at www.shure.com and refer to the FAQ section.
Once the empty battery icon appears, the tone key turns off and the receiver will mute.
FIGURE 23

ADVANCED PROGRAMMING MODE (ULXP4 MODELS ONLY) Scanning Frequency Groups
1.
Hold down the receiver SET button and press the MODE button once. The words GROUP and SCAN will flash on the
display. Refer to Figure 37.
FIGURE 37
2.
To begin scanning, rotate the control knob one quarter turn clockwise, as shown in Figure 38. The receiver will automatically begin scanning each Channel in all Groups. This may take up to two minutes, and the word “BUSY” will
appear on the display.
FIGURE 38
3.
When all Groups have been scanned, the Group with the most open Channels will appear on the display, as shown in
Figure 39.
FIGURE 39
4.
To tune the receiver to the new Group, press the SET button. An open Channel in this Group will automatically be
scanned and saved in the background. The display will then return to the default mode, as shown in Figure 40. If you
choose not to accept the receiver’s recommended Group, rotate the control knob to the right to scroll through the list
of scanned groups.
FIGURE 40
Adjusting the Receiver Squelch Setting
The receiver squelch control is factory preset for optimum performance. Normally, no further adjustment is required. However, it is possible to adjust the squelch control to improve either signal quality or increase system range.
NOTE: Increasing the Squelch level causes the receiver to demand a higher quality signal (less noise before
muting), but it reduces operating range. Decreasing the Squelch level allows a lower quality signal
through (more noise before muting), but extends the operating range.
1.
Hold down the receiver SET button and press the MODE button twice. “SQLCH” will flash on the display, as shown in
Figure 41.
FIGURE 41
17
2. Rotate the control knob. The new Squelch setting will appear on the display, as shown in Figure 42.
FIGURE 42
3. To accept the new Squelch value, press the SET button. The display will then return to the Default Mode, press
the MODE button again.
Locking the Receiver
You can lock the ULXP4 receiver frequency and output level to prevent unauthorized or accidental changes to the settings. To
access the Lock functions, proceed as follows:
1. Hold down the receiver SET button and press the MODE button three times. “Loc” will appear on the receiver display.
See Figure 43.
FIGURE 43
2. Rotate the control knob until one or both of the lock icons flashes on the receiver display, as shown in Figure 44.
FIGURE 44
3. To activate the flashing lock icon(s), press the SET button. The display will return to the default mode and the
lock icon will appear on all display screens. See Figure 44.
FIGURE 45
Unlocking the Receiver
To unlock the ULXP4 receiver frequency and output level settings, hold down the SET button and rotate the control knob
one quarter turn left-right-left. The lock icon(s) will disappear, indicating that the receiver is unlocked. See Figure 45.
FIGURE 46
NOTE: If the volume control knob has been set to a level higher than the locked level, the output level will
remain locked and the Volume Level warning indicator will flash on the receiver display. See Figure
46. Rotate the volume control knob counterclockwise until the Volume Level warning indicator stops
flashing. This will unlock the output level setting.

TIPS FOR ACHIEVING OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
•
Maintain a line of sight between the transmitter and receiver antennas.
•
Avoid placing transmitter and receiver where metal or other dense materials may be present.
•
Avoid placing the receiver near computers or other RF generating equipment such as CD players, DAT machines, and
digital signal processors.
•
Avoid placing the receiver in the bottom of an equipment rack unless the antennas are remotely located.
•
Point the receiver antenna tips away from each other at a 45° angle, and keep them away from large metal objects.
•
Do not obstruct the receiver antennas.
•
Use the proper cable when remotely locating receiver antennas. For best performance, use Shure UA825 or UA850
low loss coaxial antenna cable, or 50 ohm low loss cable such as RG-8U.
•
For remote antenna placement, use Shure UA820WB 1/2 Wave Antenna and UA830WB Active Remote Antenna Kits,
along with Shure UA844WB Antenna Distribution System.
•
Mount diversity antennas at least 1/4 wave apart. This can be achieved by remote placement of one or both 1/2 wave
antennas using Shure UA825, UA850, or UA8100 low loss coaxial cable and a Shure UA830WB Active Remote
Antenna Kit in conjunction with a Shure Antenna Distribution System. For multiple system installations, use the Shure
UA844WB Antenna/Power Distribution System.
•
Try to maintain a distance of at least 5 meters (15 ft) between the transmitter and receiver.

NOTE: Batteries stored for more than a year or stored in excessively hot environments may experience a higher
failure rate.
NOTE: When using rechargeable batteries, do not use any battery with a fully-charged rating of greater than 9v, for
example, 9.6V
ULX Transmitters use a DC-to-DC converter, which require a minimum 6 V to operate. It the battery does not provide this
threshold voltage, the transmitter will not operate.
