    Once again, thank you for your replies, they all makes sense. The only thing i will say is that it's not a hiss, its like a crackling static noise, very loud. I have borrowed a multimeter to check all my cables and i will not use the radio mic next time and see how it goes.

    Well yes, but:
    If it's venue specific ( as I suspect it may well be ) you'll never find it at home.

    Now personally, I would. Granted, I would have a cabled mic wired in as well, and a second cabled mic on standby, in case it isdown to the radio mic.

    I'm now about to wander off into my shed to recreate an intermittent DMX issue, which I feel confident will be conspicuous by its absence.

    Many years ago, I had an old second hand VHF radio mic which was affected by some new electronic tills that had been installed in the bar, which backed on to where my set up was. Switched to a lead Mic there and Robert is your father's brother.
