    I have used that combination.
    If you use a compressor with light/med compression it works very well.

    Answer: 
    Having different frequencies permits the simultaneous operation of mutiple wireless systems in the same location. Each wireless microphone/transmitter must operate on its own frequency. System 8 VHF Wireless Systems are available in 3 different frequencies, therefore the maximum number of System 8 systems that can be operated simultaneously is 3.

    Answer: 
    If you are speaking about the FCC 700MHz ruling, this system is NOT effected by it. Additionally, the System 8 is uses frequencies that the FCC has designated as "Traveling [VHF] Frequencies", which are completely fine to use. If you have any further questions, please see the below:

    Answers

    Answer: 
    System 8 is a fixed frequency system, so the frequency cannot be changed. The only way this could be resolve is if one of you exchanges your system for a System 8 that is on another frequency. There are only 3 frequencies available for this system, but again, they are all fixed and unchangeable.
