    Dear folks,

    I'm interested in purchasing a wireless PRO 88W transmitter and
    receiver.
    How many (if more than one) Pro 88w transmitters can I run at the same
    time (to the same receiver...latched onto my camera)?
    i'd like to have atleast 2 people simultaneously miked to the same
    transmitter if possible.

    if i have emailed the wrong group please tell me who to contact with
    this question.

    thanks,

    jason

    ps. anybody know how i get the name "graytooth" off of here. lol. i
    don't want to use that moniker anymore. and i cant seem to find out
    how to get rid of it or change it through my google account. i don't
    even remember how i got it to show up there! i thought it would just
    display my user name as "clark_kent_712000...." or "jason" which is my
    name entered into my google account profile.

    No wireless microphone system allows more than one
    transmitter to send to a single receiver. The way FM
    radio works precludes a receiver from properly hearing
    more than one transmitter concurrently.

    Yes, there are some systems that combine two or more
    receivers in the same case, but they are clearly identified
    a multi-channel. The Audio-Technica Pro88 series is
    NOT one of those.
    Assuming you mean the same receiver?

    If you mean that you can get the two people together
    on a common microphone with a single tansmitter, then
    sure you can do that.
    This is really an audio question. The two groups that are
    more appropriate are...

    where they deal
    with wireless mics every day. (Although generally pro
    models that cost 10x or more than the A-T Pro88)

    where they deal with
    wireless mics in live sound reinforcement. But that is
    a rather rough and crude neighborhood and I would
    NOT recommend it to anyone.

    There are also and where there are some wireless mic users, although questions
    about RF are somewhat off-topic there.

    Assuming you live in the US, I wouldn't be spending
    any money buying wireless mics these days. With the
    shut-down of the VHF television system next year, it
    is anybody's guess whether equipment that works in
    those frequency bands will continue to be legal (or
    even usable).

    The only way to do that would be to have a mixer for the mics in front of the
    transmitter

    This'll do. To do what you want, step up to the Audio-Technica 1800 series.
    The receiver has two separate sections that will allow the use of two
    separate transmitters, one for each person talking. The 1800 receiver can be
    configured to output a mix of those channels. I'd prefer to keep them
    separated on two different tracks myself, but if that's what you need to do,
    that's how you can do it.
