Kind of new to the whole wireless thing, But after getting shocked I've decided to take some advice. I have made sure that the outlets in a home 5 years old are all good. Trying to connect the PA and my guitar amp into the same outlet but this isn't always Ideal because others use it. So I have decided to separate my self from the electric circuit by going wireless. IMHO my life is very important. Wireless systems can be a bit of a hassle I've been researching for weeks and still have not decided on a set that I'm satisfied with. There are wireless mics ranging from very inexpensive to break the bank expensive! From the research I have done in the past UHF is the best for me. Digital is a bit out of my price range. I have mainly been reading reviews on popular Items but thats not helping I'm reading reviews and even the high dollar ,well known brands are not hit and miss. Does any one have any experience or a particular model they rely on.

I got my wife a Line 6 XD-V35 unit. She uses it pretty regularly with her Classic Rock band. It's proved to be a pretty reliable unit, and it sounds great. It is digital, not UHF though - not sure how committed you are to UHF. I opted for this based on my experience with a similar Line 6 guitar wireless.
You didn't say what your target price range was. This went for $299 from Sweetwater.

Just to clarify, any wireless microphone or wireless guitar system MUST BE radio. A digital system just means that the audio is converted from analog to digital and will use some digital encoding scheme (e.g. NRZ, NRZI, Mult-3, Manchester, etc.) rather than amplitude (AM), frequency (FM, or phase (PM) modulation techniques. But whether analog or digital, there is still the need to modulate or "impress" the audio onto the radio signal in some manner for it to get to the receiver.
UHF just stands for the frequency band of the radio signal. Other band options could be VHF, SHF, EHF, etc. In the case of the Line 6 XD-V35, it uses the 2.4GHz range in the SHF (Super High Frequency) band.
FWIW, from my own experience, digital encoding approaches offer the greatest range, best sonic clarity, and least interference from other radio sources. They may cost a little more, but they're the least likely to have problems and most likely to work every time. I don't know the Line 6 XD-V35 from personal experience, but in checking it out on the Web , it looks like a very good product yet seems to be quite inexpensive compared to many others. I may try it myself.
You are of course correct Jerry. Thanks for the clarification. Glad I was able to tip you off to the Line 6 stuff. Both the wife's mic and my guitar rig work very well. The clarity on the guitar unit is amazing.
