Wireless microphones are approved as a standard feature in new stake centers. For existing stake centers, one wireless microphone system may be purchased as needed and is funded from operation budgets through the local Facilities Manager (FM). The FM may have additional units available for loan if ever needed. Units that desire to order wireless microphones have a choice between lapel microphones (which clamp onto a shirt or a tie) and handheld microphones.
Note: Models below reflect purchases in North America, other areas of the world will have different standards.
Works best for hands-free operation for training and teaching. Microphone clips on to tie, lapel, blouse, etc.
Works best when a microphone needs to be shared by multiple presenters or passed around for comment.
Units may purchase both types of wireless microphones; however, no more than one microphone can be used with a receiver at a time. If multiple wireless microphones need to be used at the same time, a receiver will be needed for each one.
A wireless microphone system includes:
- Receiver: 10-channel receiver with two antennas and wall-wart power supply. Receiver has volume control on rear panel to adjust microphone loudness in the room.
- Microphone: Your choice of lavalier (with body pack transmitter), or handheld microphone. Both microphones use two AA alkaline batteries.
- Cord: 10-foot microphone cable connects receiver into any sound system microphone input.
- Case: Convenient plastic compartmentalized carrying case.
The purchase of wireless microphones is coordinated through the stake physical facilities representative and the facility manager. Purchasing wireless microphones outside of this channel may make it difficult for units to receive support if there is an issue with the microphones.
