3-Channel170MHz Wireless

Microphone

32-1230A B OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.

Your RadioShack 3-Channel170MHz Wireless Microphone is designed for use as a public address microphone or for professional music performances.

The system’s long range (150 feet), high fidelity frequency response (100 – 10,000 Hz), wide dynamic range (90 dB), and low distortion (1.0%) let you use it anywhere you would use a conventional microphone.

The microphone’s low battery indicator and threeposition switch (ON/STBY/OFF) help you avoid last minute battery failures.

The selectable channel switch allows you to use more than one wireless microphone system in the same location.

This professional quality multi-channelsystem is designed for both single and multiple performer applications. Up to three different people can perform at the same time, without microphone interference. Each performer uses one microphone and one receiver. Since the microphones and receivers are available separately, you can mix and match

the mics and receivers that have the features that best fit your needs.

This device complies with Part 90 of the FCC Rules. There are a total of eight frequencies available for this microphone. Each microphone has channels that can operate on three of these frequencies. You must get a license for each frequency you plan to use before you use the microphone. Licensing eligibility depends on how you will use the microphone. Contact your nearest FCC office to get the necessary application.

INSTALLING THE BATTERY

The microphone’s transmitter is powered by a single 9-voltbattery. For the longest battery life, we recommend an alkaline battery.

Caution: Use only fresh batteries of the required size and recommended type.

1.While holding the body of the microphone, carefully unscrew the ball grill assembly far enough to remove the battery door.

2.Insert the battery into the battery compartment on top of the ribbon, being sure the + and – terminals are connected correctly as shown on the inside of the battery compartment.

3.Replace the battery compartment cover and tighten the ball grill assembly.

Low Battery Indications

The microphone’s BATT LOW indicator tells you the condition of the battery.

If the indicator flickers when you move the microphone’s switch from OFF toSTBY, the battery is good.

If the indicator lights when you are using the microphone (in the ON orSTBY position), battery power is low and you should replace the battery.

Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.

Caution: If you do not plan to use the microphone for several weeks, remove the battery. Batteries can leak chemicals that can destroy electronic parts.

SETTING THE CHANNEL

Your transmitter can transmit on three different channels so you can use more than one system at the same time without interference. If you intend to operate more than one system, you must set a different channel for each transmitter and receiver system. Each channel frequency is identified by a different letter. If your transmitter is set to

channel B, your receiver must also be set to channelB. Do not operate two systems in the same location on the same channel or on adjacent channels.

Notes:

System microphones are sold in three channel combinations:

A E H, B D G, or C F H

If you are using only one system, you do not have to change the transmitter channel. Instead, set the receiver channel to match the transmitter channel.

Using More Than One Wireless System

If you intend to use more than two wireless microphone systems in the same location, follow the recommended channel combinations listed for best performance.

minimizes interference when you use more than one wireless system.

To set the transmitter channel, do the following.

Battery

Compartment

1.While holding the body of the microphone, carefully unscrew and remove the tapered lower section of the microphone.

Caution: Static electricity can damage your microphone. To avoid possible damage, you should discharge any static electricity from your body by touching a faucet or other grounded metal object before you set the transmitter channel.

5

2.Set the transmitter switch to the desired channel. Do not handle the printed circuit board or remove the protective shield.

3.Replace the lower section of the microphone body.

OPERATION

1.Fully extend the receiver’s antenna.

2.Turn on your amplifier, tape recorder, mixing board, and other necessary components of your audio system. Set the volume control (or input level controls) to moderate settings.

3.Set the receiver’s volume control to its minimum setting.

4.Press the receiver’s power button to the on position. The green power indicator lights.

5.Set the receiver channel switch to the same channel as the transmitter.

6.Set the microphone’s ON/STBY/OFF switch toON. The receiver’s red READY indicator lights.

7.Begin talking into the microphone and adjust the receiver’s volume control to the desired level.

6

Note: Experiment with the receiver’s volume setting and the settings of other components in your audio system to obtain the best results.

Using the Standby Setting

The microphone’s STBY setting lets you turn off the microphone without turning off the microphone’s transmitter.

If you move the switch from ON orSTBY toOFF while your amplifier is on, there is a loud pop. There is no pop when you move the switch fromSTBY toON, or fromON toSTBY.

To conserve battery power, be sure to set the switch to OFF when you finish using the microphone.
