    This is great info! My questions have more to do with multiple IEM transmitters – combating the antenna farm. Do they have a “minimum distance” between each other rule as well? or is it the same as a wireless receivers (1/2 to 1 wavelength)?
    also – “transmit and receive antenna should be 10-12 ft apart” what about a performer who is holding a transmitter and has a receiver on their belt? does that create problems?
