INSTRUCTION MANUAL SUPPLEMENT

Pre-coordinated Frequencies
Tables and Usage

The use of multiple analog frequencies in a common location
requires planning and diagnostics to ensure reliable operation.
Carriers must be spaced far enough apart and certain rules
must be observed to avoid interference caused by the wireless systems themselves. Radio carrier signals also combine
and mix to generate sums and differences in a process called
“intermodulation” or IM.
IM generates new signals that can interfere with those that are
desired. The combinations can become very complex as the
number of systems increases.
The tables on the following pages provide 16 frequencies in
each band or “block” of frequencies that avoid IM and allow
adequate spacing for simultaneous use.

look at the other receivers and see if one of them is also picking up the signal.lectrosonics. the squelch opens and audio is delivered to the output. Change frequencies on either system slightly until all channels pass this test. 3. NM 87124 USA • www. change the frequency to a clear channel where no signal is indicated. Turn each transmitter off one at a time. select the frequency with the lowest RF level indication. in turn. Turn on all receivers. about 25 to 30 feet from the receiver antennas. 1. turn the transmitter on and move on to the next channel. With all transmitters and receivers turned on. Then. If a completely clear channel cannot be found. but obviously cannot take into account RF signals from external sources that may be present in the location where the system will be operating. stage or location turned on as well. you must start at the beginning and go through this procedure again for all systems. Pilot tone control can be bypassed as a diagnostic tool. When a clear frequency is found. IMPORTANT: Any time a frequency is changed on any of the systems in use. but leave the transmitters off. Scanning with the RF spectrum analyzer built into the Venue system will identify external RF signals. turn each transmitter off one at a time. then find enough pre-coordinated frequencies in the tuning groups (Grp a through Grp d) to operate on the clear TV channels. 4. have all other equipment on the set. you can run the scanner to find clear TV channels. then check again to see that all channels are still clear as done in step 2. excessive noise will be present. Turn each transmitter on one at a time. Set up the system for testing. If possible. Once all receiver modules are on clear channels. If it does not. change frequency on that receiver and transmitter and try it again. especially any mixing or recording equipment that will be used with the wireless system. 2. Start with all transmitters turned off. As you turn on each one. Place transmitters about 3 to 5 feet apart. look at the matching receiver to verify a strong RF signal is received. a final checkout procedure is always a good idea. 581 Laser Road NE • Rio Rancho. Place antennas in the position in which they will be used and connect to the receivers. When a signal with the correct pilot tone is received. CAUTION: When pilot tone is bypassed and the transmitter is turned off. and look at the RF level indicator on the matching receiver module. you will be able to do this quickly and save yourself some “multichannel grief. In some cases.Diagnostics Multi-channel System Checkout Interference can result from a wide variety of sources including TV station signals. Even so. If a signal is present. Pilot tone bypass will also allow you to use a transmitter that has a defective pilot tone circuit. Bypass opens the audio output of the receiver unconditionally. Only the matching receiver should indicate a signal. The pre-coordinated frequencies on the chart on the previous pages address in-system intermodulation. it is still a good idea to go through the check out procedure because you can encounter interference from other wireless.com 30 June 2008 . but it does not address the compatibility of the selected frequencies. With a little practice. other wireless equipment in use nearby. Observe at the RF signal strength indicator for each receiver module. or from intermodulation within a multichannel wireless system itself. Pilot tone is supported in the Digital Hybrid compatibility modes for those systems that use it. Regardless of how the frequencies were coordinated. The RF level should disappear or drop to a very low level. Turn the audio level down before bypassing pilot tone. Pilot tone squelch control also eliminates transients (clicks and pops) when transmitters are turned on and off. IFB and intercom systems when you get to the production or installation site. allowing you to listen to any signals entering the receiver to help identify their source.com (505) 892-4501 • (800) 821-1121 • fax (505) 892-6243 • sales@lectrosonics.” Pilot Tone Bypass Some wireless equipment uses a supersonic “pilot tone” to control the squelch (audio mute) of a receiver module to keep it silent until a valid signal is received. go to step 3. Set all receivers on clear channels.
