Guide d Tour - UT-5
1: Power on-off switch* - Use this to turn the UT-5 on or off (to
conserve battery power, be sure to leave it off when not in use).
2: Six-pin input connector - Connect your input device (lavalier mic,
headset mic or instrument cable) here, using the supplied six-pin
connector. A wiring diagram and chart (showing connections for many
popular lavalier and headset mics) is presented on pages 25 - 27.
3: Battery LED - This LED is an indicator of battery strength. If the
battery is sufficiently strong, when the UT-5 is first powered on, this LED
will light for about two-tenths of a second and then go off.** When bat-
tery voltage is low, this LED lights steadily, indicating that the battery
needs to be replaced.
4: Audio on-off switch - When set to the “on” position, audio signal is
transmitted. When set to the “off” position, the audio signal is muted.
Because the carrier signal remains during muting, no “pop” or “thud” will
be heard. Note that turning this off does not turn off the transmitter
power—it is simply a way to temporarily mute the transmission of audio
signal. If you don’t plan on using the transmitter for extended periods,
turn off the transmitter power by using the power on-off switch (see #1
above). As described on page 20 of this manual, setting the UT-5 Audio
switch to the “on” position operates a tone squelch feature by causing
a 38.4 kHz signal to be added to the carrier. The illuminated word
“MUTE” in the UR-5 and UR-5D display is a visual representation of the
absence of this 38.4 kHz signal. When “MUTE” is lit, either the transmit-
ter Audio switch is in the “off” position or the currently selected Group
and Channel do not match that of the transmitter.
5: Antenna - Connect the supplied transmitter antenna to this mount-
ing. Replacement antennas are available from Samson Technologies if
Be sure to mute the audio signal at your external mixer or amplifier
before turning transmitter power on or off, or an audible pop may result.
** However, if you turn on the UT-5 within five seconds of turning it off,
the Battery LED will not light. We recommend that you always leave at
least five seconds between turning off and turning on the UT-5.
