Rodney in California asked for a recommendation for a wireless microphone for a monthly indoor/outdoor event at which participants walk around the space using the mic to make announcements and give out raffle prizes. His primary concern is avoiding feedback.

Check out their Collection of Feedback Troubleshooting Hints and Links, which includes over a dozen helpful documents.
