New coordination for the OP is attached.
The 2 "extra" G1 frequencies are spares, since the G1 has the least switching bandwidth, you can use them on any of the units...
unit that operates in the "B" band.
Thanks to Chris with the frequency coordination, and things look better. I just put an order in through Full Compass for 2 of the Wideband Passive UHF Antennas, cable, and wall mounts. We're going to install those antennas on the back wall (FOH) directly in front of our sound booth. While not decreasing distance to the stage that much, hopefully the directivity and getting them out of the booth a bit should help.
I'd love to move them on-stage, but we don't have a snake at this point so pulling audio would be tough. We're looking at doing a new sound system install in a year or two and would probably move the mic receivers down to stage and get 48 channels through a couple digital snake units on stage at that point.
Thanks for the help. We finally have the A-1031s mounted on the outside wall of our booth in the house. As mentioned, I picked up Senny's low-loss antenna cable-stuff is thicker than a brick. Also have the Mini-Circuits splitters feeding all of the distro and mic receivers.
I did a simple test run with a bodypack. A friend took the bodypack and roamed the house, on stage, and actually out the back door stage right and through another exterior entrance back to stage. The RF signal rarely dipped below 40 at all (only time was outside).
More importantly, the low-level RF the receivers had been picking up when none of our transmitters on is gone as well. I'm not sure if that was resultant from ground plane issues with the way our stock whips were mounted to the front of the rack, but it's good news all around.
I"m running 10 or so in A, 8 in B, and 4 in G. The best belden low loss 50ohm cable I could find (REAL thick) running about 90' to the remote mounted 1031's. Boosters on each of the three remote antennas (one for each freq).
I'm due for a recalc of frequencies, but things are not quite as perfect as they should be considering the equipment...
Agreed. "Boosters" (really, wideband amplifiers) often cause more problems than they solve!
