1. Place the receiver and antennas where there is a clear
line of sight to the area where the transmitter will be used.
Rotate the antennas to separate them by 90 degrees.
See Part 15 for more information.
E. ClearScan All: This function scans all of the groups (factory
and user) and returns a list of groups ranked by the number
of free channels.
1. Once ClearScan All has run, the screen will display the
clearest group with the open channels in that group. You
can scroll through the other ranked groups using
UP/DOWN.
2. Connect the power cord to the receiver. Turn the receiver on and confirm that it is ON by checking the main display screen. The display will show the company logo,
software revision level and then display the main screen
with the last channel set.
2. When you have the group you want, press SET to run
ClearScan on that group. The display will now show the
group with the Channels ranked by clearness and the
clearest channel will be flashing.
3. Press SET to select and the clearest channel will be
installed, display will return to the main display.
B. Manual Channel Change
1. From the main display screen press the MENU button
once to display the edit screen.
2. Press SET and the group number will flash. The UP and
DOWN buttons allow you to scroll through the 18 factory
groups and 2 user definable groups.
3. When the group you desire is displayed, press SET to select
that group and the Channel Number will start flashing.
4. Scroll to the desired channel, press SET to select.
NOTE: Groups 17 and 18 have 16 channels and are marked with
an N (17n). These groups require the transmitters to be in
the LOW transmit power setting to work together. After
ClearScan All runs, the N groups will always be displayed
after groups 1-18 and any user defined groups no matter
how many channels are free. If you need to use more than
12 systems at one time, scroll down to the N groups and
use the clearest group with Normal transmit power.
F. ClearScan Group: this function will scan the group currently
selected, which is useful for multi-system setup.
5. Pressing MENU anytime before pressing SET negates
any changes made since the last SET.
1. Use ClearScan All on the first unit of a multi-system installation to select the clearest group.
6. Once the desired group and channel are displayed (but
not flashing) press MENU twice to return to the main display screen.
2. For each system added, leave all previously selected
channel transmitters on, using Step 3 select the current
group, select ClearScan Group and press SET.
3. The display will show the remaining clear channels in the
group with the clearest flashing.
C. Frequency Assignment (User Defined Groups Only)
4. Select the desired channel with UP/DOWN or simply press
SET for the clearest channel.
1. With a User Group (19u or 20u) and channel selected in
step three, press SET until the Frequency Number flashes.
2. Use UP/DOWN to scroll in 25 kHz steps to the desired
frequency. With the desired frequency displayed press
SET. Hint: holding in the arrow key will increase the
speed of the scroll. Just release and press again for fine
control.
5. The channel will be selected and return to the main display.
6. Repeat until all systems are set up.
G. ClearScan Band: selects and ranks the clearest 16 frequencies in the 24 MHz bandwidth regardless of groups, channels
or previous coordination. This feature is useful for selecting
one clear channel in a very busy RF environment.
3. Repeat until all desired Channels in the user group are
assigned a frequency.
1. From the Options screen, select ClearScan Band and
press SET.
4. Press MENU twice to return to the main display screen.
2. This scan will run until SET is pressed again so it can be
used to evaluate a site over an hour, day or even a week.
D. Advanced ClearScan: This feature automates the process
of finding a clear group of inter-modulation free channels
and the clearest channels within those groups. From the
main display screen push Menu twice to go to the MENU
Screen and press SET to select ClearScan.
3. To end scan, press SET, the program displays Group 21S
with the clearest open frequencies in the band assigned
channels (up to 16).
4. These frequencies will remain assigned to this group until
ClearScan Band is run again.
Caution: Unlike the factory assigned groups, the channels in
21S are not coordinated. If more than two channels from group
21S are used, the combination must be walk tested with all
transmitters on before use.

press set. The sound check screen will be displayed and
it includes the following elements.
2. The MENU button still allows different screens to be displayed but no settings can be changed and ClearScan
will not run.
2. Peak Hold Audio Meter - allows you to set the transmitter gain as high as possible for the application which
maximizes the signal to noise ratio. Sing, yell or play the
guitar at the loudest desired volume and adjust the gain
so the meter peaks between 50 and 100.
3. To reactivate the SET key, press and hold the UP and
DOWN keys again for 5 seconds until the padlock symbol disappears.
I. Continue Set Up: make certain the mixer or amplifier input
used for the REV is muted or turned down to a minimum level.
3. Low Hold RF Meter will tell you if you have adequate
coverage in the performance area. If the RF level drops
below 10 on the meter during a walk of the desired area,
reposition the antennas, or change the channel and
retest.
J. Plug an audio cable (not supplied) into the 3 pin XLR or 1/4
inch output of the receiver.
NOTE: The XLR connector is the preferred connection since the
output is balanced and will be more immune to noise for
longer runs of cable, although either can be used with good
results.
4. Drop Counter - will tell you if you are exceeding the
range or may have some interference problems to contend with. Ideally this count would be zero for the desired
performance area. If there are several squelch breaks
while walking the area, adjust and check the antennas
and re-walk.
K. Voice or Guitar: The REV system guitar optimization mode
requires both the transmitter and receiver be placed into guitar mode.
5. Dropout Tone - Press the UP button and the speaker
symbol will change. Now when the receiver increments
the dropout counter, it will also send a 1 kHz audio tone
out the output so you can hear where on the stage the
drop occurs. Press DOWN to turn off the tone. The tone
will also deactivate when you return to the main display.
1. Press Menu twice to display the options screen, scroll
down to Audio Edit and press SET.
2. With the Audio Edit Screen displayed press SET until
Audio setting flashes.
3. Use UP/DOWN to select Voice or Guitar mode. The
default setting is Voice.
6. Left and Right Antenna Check - Press and hold the
SET button until the screen changes to two large meters
marked L and R. This screen is used to check the continuity of the left and right antennas. If the RF levels are
not approximately the same, check connections. Press
SET to return to Sound Check Screen.
4. Make certain the bodypack transmitter is in the same
mode.
5. Now refer ahead to transmitter setup and return to step
10 when that is completed.
6. With the transmitter on, speak into the microphone or
play the guitar. Turn up the level on the mixer or
amplifier until you are able to hear the desired signal.
If no audio is present, repeat setup and refer to the
troubleshooting section.
N. Squelch Adjustment - The squelch setting can be used to
maximize range or immunity to noise.
1. Turn the transmitter off and from the receiver Options
screen select Squelch and press SET.
L. Audio Output Level Adjustment: It may be necessary to
adjust the receiver output until the volume level from the
wireless system approximates the level of an equivalent
wired mic/instrument.
2. The current squelch setting will be displayed, the setting
will flash and (the tone coded portion of the squelch is
turned off in set mode to allow you to notice any changes
in the amplitude squelch setting).
1. From the main display screen, press MENU twice to display the menu screen, scroll down to Audio Edit and
press SET.
3. Adjust the squelch using the UP/DOWN keys and walk
test the unit. Maximum squelch (15) maximizes noise
immunity but limits the range. Minimum squelch (1) will
maximize the range but may allow noise at the end of
range.
2. Press SET to step through Mic/Line, Balanced (XLR Lvl)
and Unbalanced Audio (HiZ Lvl).
3. Use the UP and DOWN to adjust output levels when
flashing. The default settings are Mic and -18dB on the

Section 6 - Guidelines for Best Performance
Compatibility
Potential Sources of Interference
The transmitter and receiver must be of the same frequency
band and set to the same group and channel in order to work
together. The REV is available in four US frequency bands, C1,
C2, C3, C5. The band information is available in the
Group/Channel edit screen on the receiver, the bottom label on
the handheld transmitter, and on the back panel label on the
bodypack.
There are many potential sources of interference for your wireless system. Any electronic product that contains digital circuitry
including digital signal processors (reverb/multi-effects units),
electronic keyboards, digital lighting controllers, CD and DVD
players, and computers, all emit RF energy that can adversely
affect the performance of your wireless system. It is always best
to place the receiver as far away as possible from these devices
to minimize potential problems.
Using Multiple Wireless Systems
If two or more REV systems and/or other UHF/VHF wireless
systems are being used in the same location, proper frequency
coordination is necessary to avoid interference. All channels in
the REV factory set groups are designed to work together, so if
channels from just one group are used, no further coordination
is required.
Contact your dealer or Telex for assistance if you are planning
more than 12 systems or using the REV with other wireless
equipment.
ALWAYS REMEMBER: SAME GROUP, DIFFERENT CHANNEL.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Always use the smallest preset group
that meets your needs. For instance, if you want to set up 6
units, use one of the groups of 12 frequencies. The smaller
the preset group, the more compatible the frequencies are.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Lo transmit power must be used for
factory preset groups of 16 units working simultaneously.
Analog and Digital Television stations can also interfere with
your wireless system. The REV is designed to operate over
24MHz of RF bandwidth, which covers four TV channels. The
factory presets on the REV are optimized for conditions where
one, two, or possibly three of the four stations are covered in
your area. If three of the four stations are used in your area, it
will severely limit the number of systems that will operate together and you should be using a different band.
Battery Recommendations
Fresh 9-volt or AA Lithium-Iron batteries from a quality manufacturer will yield the best performance from your transmitters.
Rechargeable 8.4-volt Ni-Cad batteries can be used but will
result in much shorter operational time.
When the REV-BP or REV-PH transmitters are turned on, the
red battery LED will flash once if the battery is good. If the light
does not light or stays lit continuously, the battery is weak or
dead. If the light comes on during use, the battery is weakening
and should be replaced as soon as possible. If sound quality
degrades during use, it may be the result of a weakening battery.
Multiple Systems and Advanced ClearScan
Because all of the channels in the factory set groups are compatible, Advanced ClearScan can be used to set up multiple systems quickly and with confidence. When setting up more than
one system, set up the first system using the ClearScan All function. Once the working Group has been established, leave the
first transmitter on, set the next receiver Group to the working
Group and run ClearScan Group.
Caution: The battery level indicators, on the transmitters
and receiver displays, are based on the use of alkaline batteries. Use of other battery types will result in false readings on these indicators although the battery low LED on
the transmitters will operate normally.
Receiver and Antenna Placement
Do not place the receiver near a large metal object or surface.
This will provide the next clearest channel in that group. Set the
transmitter to match, leave it on and repeat until all the systems
are set up. If you run out of clear Channels in one group but
need to set up more systems, contact your dealer or Telex for
assistance in choosing additional frequencies.
Locate the receiver as close as possible to the area where the
transmitter will be used. Ideally, the position of the
receiver/antennas are within sight of the transmitter. When using
multiple systems, do not allow antennas to cross or touch each
other. For best results with multiple receivers, use an APD4+
antenna splitter (see Antenna Connections, page 6).
