    Answer: 
    The wireless version of the AT898 (wired) that will work with Audio-Technica UniPak Bodypack Transmitters is the AT898cW. This includes the ATW-T310b transmitter. The microphone needs to have a "cW" in the title in order to be compatible with most Audio-Technica wireless transmitters.

    Any microphone that has "cW" in the title will work with the following Audio-Technica Wireless Systems
    - System 8 / 9 / 10
    - Pro Series 3 / 5
    - 200 / 700 / 1800 / 2000 / 3000 / 4000 / 5000 Series

    Thanks!

    Mics for old at body packs

    Our church has a very old audio-technica wireless rackmount system. The body pack is an ATW-T31 and I can not get the AT 829 mics to work with this unit. The 829 mic works well with the ATW-T27 body pack of the external unit that we have.
    If these are condenser mics, would the wiring be different on the two units?
    Thanks.
