The Shure Model UA845UWB Antenna Distribution System allows up to four receivers to use the same set of antennas. There are also power connectors for distributing power to each receiver. RF signal amplification compensates for insertion loss from splitting the antenna input to multiple outputs. Cascade connectors allow connections to a fifth receiver or a second UA845UWB. A button on the front panel switches between one of five frequency bands from 174 to 1805 MHz.
The Shure Model UA845UWB ensures maximum sensitivity and signal processing capability, providing the widest radio range possible for the largest number of wireless receivers.

The UA845UWB comes equipped for front-mounted antennas. Front-mounting improves RF performance of the system by moving the antennas to the front of the rack. When a unit is located in a rack, antennas should be either front- or remote-mounted.
Note: For the best results, point the antennas up and away from each other at 45° angles from vertical. This ensures the best possible reception and greatly reduces the possibility of signal dropout. Always perform a walk-through test of the system in the performing area before using a wireless system.
Remote-mounted antennas have the advantage of being free from the unit and closer to the transmitters. They can be placed anywhere within the recommended cable length, creating a much wider radio reception range and further reducing the possibility of signal dropout. Please ask your Shure dealer for information on in-line RF amplifiers.
When remote mounting antennas, follow these guidelines:
Note: No more than five Shure receivers should be powered through a daisy-chain from a single UA845UWB.
Warning: When adding additional UA845UWBs to a system, each UA845UWB should be connected to a separate power supply. No more than five receivers can be powered from a single UA845UWB. Daisy-chaining multiple UA845UWB's through the power output ports will overload a single power supply, possibly causing damage to the equipment.
When the Overload Antenna Indicator displays a red LED, it indicates that a strong RF signal is overloading the antenna amplifier. To correct an overload condition, increase the distance between the antenna and transmitter, or lower the antenna gain setting.
Warning: Overloading the antenna amplifier results in reduced channel count and poor system performance.

Note: Be sure to select antennas and accessories that are compatible with the operating frequency range of your wireless system. Contact Shure or your local retailer for help with selecting the right wireless accessories.
Use 50 ohm low-loss coaxial cable, such as RG-8U. Shure offers pre-terminated antenna cables ranging from 6 to 100 feet.
NOTE: When ordering cables from Shure, select the low-loss "Z" models (available for longer cables) when using frequency bands above 1000 MHz.
The DC bias voltage can be disabled on UA845UWB units built after August 10, 2018.
Note: The build date is printed on the bottom of the unit.
