1000 user-selectable UHF frequencies, a 120dB dynamic range, and 500' of line-of-site operation.

The Nady W-1KU Handheld Wireless System is a professional UHF wireless, offering clear-channel, frequency-agile operation on the UHF band for interference-free performance in any application or locale, and provides you great performance at a exceptional price point. The W-1KU handheld wireless system offers 1000 user-selectable channels, frequency synthesized into 10 groups of 100 channels in the US frequency band 672MHz-697MHz. The Nady wireless system features proprietary companding and low-noise circuitry for an amazing 120dB dynamic range, and clear, natural sound available. The True Diversity circuitry has two complete front ends for maximum range and dropout protection.

W-1KU Wireless Receiver:
The W-1KU's receiver has a front-panel backlit LCD display to indicate selected audio output volume level, Group/Channel, RF signal strength meter, and A/B diversity status. A separate audio LED bar graph display provides instantaneous audio level status from a distance. The back panel offers balanced XLR Mic Level and unbalanced 1„4" line level audio output jacks.

The HT-1KU Handheld Transmitter that comes with this wireless system is housed in a sleek, all-metal housing that is made to withstand the rigors of live performances. It has convenient up and down buttons to let you remotely access the 1000 user-selectable channels; an LCD display indicating selected Group, Channel, Volume (Input Audio Level), and Battery level status; and a top-notch neodymium cartridge for clear, powerful audio, maximum feedback rejection, and minimal handling noise.

Consumer Alert:

Most users do not need a license to operate this wireless microphone system. Nevertheless, operating this microphone system without a license is subject to certain restrictions: the system may not cause harmful interference; it must operate at a low power level (not in excess of 50 milliwatts); and it has no protection from interference received from any other device. Purchasers should also be aware that the FCC is currently evaluating use of wireless microphone systems, and these rules are subject to change. For more information, call the FCC at 1-888-CALL-FCC (TTY: 1-888-TELL-FCC) or visit the FCCs wireless microphone website at:
