The tuner goes to the channel selection mode and the channel number flashes. Display example for U68 model 5 Press the + or – button to select the channel. Pressing the + button cyclically changes the channels of the group selected in step 3 in the listed order in the respective table in the “Wireless Channel Lists” on pages 15 to 23. Pressing the – button changes them in the reverse order. + button ⎟ ¿ – button Display example for U68 model When you reach the last channel in the group, press the + button to return to the first channel in the group. Likewise, press the – button to go from the first channel to the last channel. When the group is set to 00, press either of these buttons to move through the 94 channels one by one. (Continued) 11 Setting 6 After the desired channel is displayed, leave the unit for 5 seconds without pressing any buttons. Channel selection mode is automatically canceled and the channel (or frequency) shown on the display is set. Storing the group and channel The selected group and channel set by the above procedure are stored in memory when the display stops flashing. Distortion-check function Before operating a wireless microphone or transmitter, you can check for possible distortion by using the distortion check function of this unit. To check the distortion, simultaneously press the + and – buttons in the channel selection mode (the channel number flashes). The channels of the selected group are automatically switched one by one in sequence (this operation is called “scanning”). Notes • When the MUNING switch is ON and the unit is not in the T OFF mode (see page 13), scanning stops and the channel at that time is selected if a tone signal (32.768 kHz) is detected in the signal received during scanning. However, scanning will not stop if a distorting signal having no tone signal is received. In this case, check for the distortion by observing the RF input level indicator. • Scanning is automatically canceled when all the channels of the selected group are scanned twice. To cancel scanning in progress, press any of the operation buttons. • If an extremely strong signal is received, scanning may stop at a point other than the actual channel.

12 Setting and Releasing the T (Tone Squelch) OFF Mode

The WRR-855A has the following three muting functions, which work in combination. (1) Muting by RF input level: As sufficient S/N for the audio output may not be obtained if no RF signal is received or the RF input level is low, the audio output can be muted when the RF input level falls below the selected level. (2) Tone squelch: The audio output is obtained only when the tuner receives an RF signal which includes a specified tone signal. The audio output is muted to eliminate noise which may be heard when the transmitter is turned on/off or the tuner receives an interference RF signal. (3) Noise squelch: The audio output is muted to eliminate noise which may be heard when there is such excessive interference RF signal that the tone squelch does not work. Only the muting functions described in (2) can be canceled by selecting the Tone-squelch OFF (T OFF) mode when desired. Apply this mode when you use a transmitter with no specified tone signal. Selecting the T OFF mode Turn the power ON while pressing and holding the GP and – buttons. Release the buttons after the “HELLO” message appears. “T OFF” is momentarily displayed and the tuner goes to the T OFF mode. The T OFF mode is maintained even when the power is turned OFF. Resuming from the T OFF mode To cancel the T OFF mode, turn the power ON while pressing and holding the GP and + buttons, and release the buttons after “HELLO” appears on the display. “T ON” is momentarily displayed and the tuner resumes the normal status.

Wireless Channels SelectableGuidance on Use of Multi-Channel Notes

System This product is designed to give excellent interference free operation in multi-channel systems. To maintain this, Sony recommends that one of the original Sony groups, number 00, 11, 12, 13, A1, A2, A3, L1, L2, H1 or H2 is selected. These groups will offer excellent performance, free from mutual interference from other Sony wireless microphone transmitters in the selected group when used under the recommended operating conditions. The remaining groups are included for compliance with frequency regulations in various countries, and will not always guarantee interference free operation. Group 00 is used to scan for open channels, or to use only for a one channel system. Each “wireless channel” is represented on the unit by a 2- digit TV channel number and another 2-digit number, for example: 68-23. To eliminate interference or noise, please note the following. • Do not use two or more wireless microphones or transmitters whose wireless channels are the same. • If there is a TV broadcasting station nearby, to avoid possible interference from its broadcast, do not use that station’s channel. • The number of wireless channels actually usable in a multi-channel system may be smaller than the normal capacity of that system if there is interference from TV broadcasting or other RF signals. • To operate two or more UHF synthesized wireless microphones/transmitters using the same wireless channel of the same group, ensure that the wireless microphones/transmitters are at least 100 m (330 feet)1) apart as far as they are installed within sight of each other. • When using two or more WRR-855As, do not directly put one unit upon the other.

Precautions On operation • The tuner unit must be used within the temperature range of 0°C to 50°C (32°F to 122°F). Avoid using for an extended period time in extremely high temperature, or the place subject to direct sunlight, especially outdoors, because the finish of the case might be damaged. Never install the tuner on or near heat sources, such as lighting equipment, power amplifiers. • The tuner is designed to be portable and is built to resist humidity and dust. However, try to avoid using in very humid or dusty places, because such use may shorten the life of the tuner unit. • To avoid degradation of the signal-to-noise ratio, do not use the tuner in noisy places or in locations subject to vibration, for example: − near electric equipment such as motors, transformers or dimmers − near air conditioning equipment or places subject to direct air flow from an air conditioner − near a public address loudspeaker − in a location where adjacent equipment might knock against the tuner. • The switching of lights may produce electrical interference over the entire frequency range. Position the tuner and the wireless microphone in a place where such interference is at minimum. • The tuner unit is precisely adjusted at the factory and no adjustment before use is necessary. Do not touch the inside of the unit or try to repair it by yourself. • When looking into the upper-panel displays, be careful to keep a sufficient distance between your eyes and the tuner unit. S On cleaning Clean the tuner unit with a dry, soft cloth. Never use thinner or benzine, since these will damage the finish.
