The Two-Way Radio UHF Wireless PA Interface receiver allows someone
on a two-way radio or base station intercom to send an announcement to
all the wired speakers in a PA/Intercom system. The Wireless PA
Interface receiver can be connected to an existing wired system and it
can receive transmissions from up to a mile away. Radio range can be
extended with the use of an external antenna.
This device can also be used in conjunction with the UHF Wireless PA
System on the same frequencies.The difference between the UHF Wireless
PA Interface and the UHF Wireless PA System is that the Wireless PA
Interface does not have a built-in audio amplifier. The built-in audio
amplifier allows the UHF Wireless PA System receiver to drive up to 2 PA
horn speakers as a stand alone system. The UHF Wireless PA Interface
receiver is designed to be connected to an existing PA/intercom system
with its own PA amplifier and wired speakers. The UHF Wireless PA
Interface receiver also does not include a back-up battery since it is
merely a component of a larger system usually powered by AC and its own
battery back-up system.
The UHF Wireless PA Interface will block out any signals that it
receives that are not programmed with one of the selective signaling
formats it uses. It can be paged with 2-way radios programmed for
Quiet Call (CTCSS), Digital Quiet Call (DCS), 2-Tone Paging, or Selcall
paging formats. Each format offers a unique method of paging the
receiver and they ensure that not just anyone can use your PA system.
The UHF Wireless PA Interface connects to the PA system either via
RCA Phono Cables if it is located within six feet of the wireless PA
system, or via the 600 ohm balanced MIC input on the PA system if it is
further. A typical balanced cable contains two identical wires, which
are twisted together and then wrapped with a third conductor (foil or
braid) that acts as a shield.
Once installed, operating the UHF Wireless PA Interface requires no
human contact. Portable, base station or mobile two-way radios can
deliver voice messages directly to a PA system with a simple press of
the Push-to-Talk button for either live or recorded playback.
