is the difference between the different wireless
GHz: 4 Channel transmitter. Approximately
2" x 2" x 1/2". No tuning
required. We generally recommend 2.4 GHz
over 434 MHz or 900 MHz, as the overall video
quality is better. Range varies from 200'
to 700' depending on environmental conditions.
Operates on 12 Volts. These units are FCC
MHz: Lower frequency amateur band. Operates
on one channel which is picked up directly
by a television. You do not need a receiver.
With a TV: set to channel 59, cable mode
but remove actual cable from the input, and
use a UHF antenna (high gain increases the
range) ears to receive the signal. With a
hand held TV: can be received on UHF band
just below channel 14. Range can vary from
300-400 up to 1,000 feet. THe range can vary
depending on frequency interference and other
environmental factors. Antenna is approximately
6 1/2 inches. Operates on 9 Volts.
MHz: Amateur band. 4 channels available
in the 900 band. The signal goes to a dedicated
receiver that is tuned from 902-930. Our
standard transmitter is set at 916.5 MHz,
but we also carry 3 other frequencies. Manual
or automatic switching receiver. Range can
vary from 200-700 feet or more depending
on environmental conditions. Antenna is approximately
3 1/2 inches. Operates on 9 Volts.
