#2 You could cover the antenna but it would be very tricky. You'd be better off to use XD-V70 and switch it to "low power" mode (not possible on V30)

Will you answer 3 follow-up questions?
1) Is the signal of V70 (set at the low power mode) weaker than V30?
The signal of V70 is originally three times as stronger as V30, I understand.
2) Does line6 offer a product that satisfies my needs -- to have a secured wireless connection valid ONLY between one transmitter & one receiver?
You once answered in the forum titled "about Digital microphone.."(thred #59227), you answered that the signal is encrypted with channel hopping.
But if someone uses another receiver of the same model and tap the conversation, the encryption does not mean anything, I'm afraid...
3) My practical concern is then how I can attenuate the singnal power of V30.
Do you have any ideas to try?

1) The output of both the V70 and V30 transmitters is 10 mW. Switching to low power mode in the V70 backs it down by 5dB which gives you about 3.6 mW
2) No ... what you are asking for is an encrypted signal that you can generate a single key. That will put you in the $2k-3K range for available products.
3) Practically, no ... you will not be able to affect the output. The simplest and lowest cost solution would be to go with V70.
At least with XD-V digital wireless the only thing that can pick you up is another XD-V receiver. With other systems and simple scanner can find you.

... and probably use something other than the default channel 1 (not really a major obstacle if someone is intentionally listening in, but ought to minimize accidental overlap).
