If this A20 mini cannot record 32 bit float as backup AND transmit audio signal to RX on camera at the same time in USA, what alternative products are out there that can do both at the same time?
Asked by: Walter
Unfortunately no, there is not currently a comparable option that is capable of recording in 32-bit and transmit over UHF frequencies at the same time. As of January 2023, this is still proprietary technology.

I believe that, in US, you can either record on the unit OR use as a transmitter, but not both at same time. Is that right? If so, why?
Asked by: Anonymous
Simultaneous Record and Transmit mode is not available on A20-Mini units sold or operated in the United States of America. A different manufacturer owns the patent to the technology to do both at the same time.
