PSA - apparently all units should have ComTek receivers

Postby aclawson » Tue Jul 08, 2014 8:55 am

I was just told that every meetinghouse should have a ComTek system for the hearing impaired which means that you should have some wireless headsets somewhere in the building. It came up for the first time ever recently and we discovered that we had no such devices.

Oh, we have them, but they usually hide in some forgotten drawer in the meetinghouse library, and have dead 9-volt batteries. Some members have actually purchased their own receivers, which I believe they can obtain at a discounted rate through the Church somehow.

Contact Comtek at 800 496 3463 and ask for an Assisted Listening Device for LDS chapels. They have member direct pricing for the LDS Church.

Your local FM/Facilities Group should be the ones responsible for having the COMTEK systems installed into the buildings and providing the 2 or 3 COMTEK listening devices issued to each building. These are only tied into the Chapel sound system. The COMTEK Broadcast device is generally located wherever the electronics/amplifier boxes are at for the Chapel Sound System. Depending upon how old your building is.

The links below are what they may look like.

This is what the COMTEK Broadcast device looks like in most cases, usually found in the sound/AV cabinet where the chapel Amp is located. (they are generally in metal cabinets that swing open (key controlled) and will find AMPS that control the primary room, cultural hall, and YW room as well)

Note, That about a year ago, when change to Listen as the standard manufacturer. New buildings, and older systems where the Comtek system has failed are replaced with Listen branded transmitters and receivers. The two are considered compatible, however older systems may have experienced large amounts of frequency drift which will make them appear non-compatible.
