INTRODUCTION

Thank you for choosing the Nady UHF-16 wireless system, and congratulations on your choice. The Nady UHF-16 system is by far the best performance and price value available in professional UHF wireless. Offering clear channel operation on the wide open, uncluttered UHF band for interference-free performance in any application or locale, the UHF-16 delivers 16 user switchable, frequency synthesized channels in pre-programmed groups in the 726 - 865 MHz range.

The UHF-16 systems feature Nady’s proprietary companding and low noise circuitry for an industry best 120 dB Dynamic Range, and the clearest, most natural sound available in wireless today.

Using this Manual

This booklet gives instructions for the operation of the UHF-16 system, including the UB-16 Bodypack

Transmitter, and the UH-16 Handheld Microphone Transmitter. Please read this instruction booklet completely before operating your system, and refer to the Nady UHF-16 Frequency Guide for the frequency band(s) and channels utilized by your system.

This manual will first explain the features of the UHF-16 and will then take you step by step in instructing you how to operate your new system. Each section will give you detailed information. Also included in this manual is a frequency selection chart, complete system specifications, and servicing information.

SYSTEM FEATURES

UHF-16 Receiver

State-of-the-art PLL synthesized 16 channel selection, user switchable

Unsurpassed UHF performance with 120 dB dynamic range and operation up to 500 feet line-of-sight

Rugged half-rack UHF-16 receiver with dual removable antennas (for convenient optional remote placement), 16 user switchable UHF frequencies and DigiTRU Diversity™ proprietary digital processing circuitry for eliminating dropouts and maximizing range

Sophisticated IF filtering for multiple UHF-16 system operation in the same location simultaneously

User-selectable Tone Squelch™ for protection from RF interference

Front panel back-lit LCD display indicates the channel/frequency selected, received RF and AF levels, A/B diversity status, and transmitter low-battery alert

Convenient UP/DOWN buttons for easy channel selection

Front panel ON/OFF button (with Power On LED indicator), Squelch (mute) adjust and Volume control for ease of operation

Back panel balanced XLR fixed mic level and adjustable unbalanced 1/4" jack audio outputs, and BNC jacks for dual antennas

Externally powered with 12 VDC (500 mA) AC adapter

Optional rack kits enable single or side-by-side rack mounting.

UB-16 and UH-16 Transmitters

Choice of transmitters: UH-16 handheld or UB-16 bodypack, both 16-channel selectable

UH-16 and UB-16 both operate on 2 AA batteries for the longest reliable and economical battery life.

UH-16 handheld is a sleek, durable unit with internal antenna (with no archaic, unattractive antenna protrusion) and the superior Nady DM-10D neodymium dynamic cartridge for clear, powerful audio, maximum feedback rejection, and minimal handling noise.

UB-16 bodypack is a versatile unit with unique 3-way input switch allowing its operation selectively as an instrument, lavalier mic or headworn mic transmitter (with convenient DC phantom powering in the mic settings for condensers). An input level control allows optimal audio gain adjustment, and a locking 3.5 mm jack provides secure connection to the instrument cable, lavalier or headworn mic cord.

Both the UH-16 and UB-16 transmitters feature OFF/STANDBY/On controls, low battery LED indicators, and offer easy channel selection via UP/DOWN buttons and a 2-segment LCD Channel display.

If you want to rack mount a single receiver in an audio equipment rack, contact the Nady Systems Service

Department (see SERVICE FOR YOUR NADY

WIRELESS, page 18) for an optional RMK-16S

SINGLE RACK MOUNTING KIT (6a) and proceed as (6a) follows:

1. Attach the rack ears to the 2 holes on each side of the receiver with the supplied screws and mount the unit in the 19” audio equipment rack.

2.If you wish to also front mount the antennas, order the additional FMK-16S FRONT MOUNT CONVERSION KIT (6b) also from the Nady Service Department when ordering the RMK-16S.

c.Rack Mounting 2 Receivers Side by Side

If you want to rack mount 2 receivers side-by-side in an audio equipment rack, contact the Nady Systems

Service Department (see SERVICE FOR YOUR NADY WIRELESS, page 18) for an optional RMK-16D DOUBLE RACK MOUNTING KIT (6c) and proceed as follows:

1.Remove the covers of both receivers by removing the 4 screws on the bottom plate
