    VHF=very high frequency=noise pollution=bad

    UHF=ultra hugh frequency=much less noise pollution=good

    A $100 wireless will cause you more than $200 in aggravation. Spend $300.

    Spoken wisely by a man who has a lot of experience. VHF = no, $100 = NO!

    Couldn't have been stated better. In the long run, you'll be happy you spent more money. If you keep an eye on eBay, you can come up with some deals. Do you play 5s, or strictly 4s?

    Munji: Are you still using the Shure? A friend of mine just got the same model, and I want to try it out. That might make a good back-up plan, but I don't forsee any problems with my XWire in the future - I just don't like 2U rackmount receiver. Maybe something like that Shure would be good for a pedalboard when I don't want to take the rack. Hmm...
