I need to know the maximum amount of UHF mics I can use on one gig, and what frequencies they should be assigned to. My main mic is the U1 wireless body pack, and I also use the wireless SM58 too. Your help would be much appreciated.

I would rather try to resolve this via email as cost is a factor as my company won't pay my phone bill. Now, basically all the TV channels in my area don't use frequencies higher than 547-554. I'm not too sure what you mean by UB band and UA band. The groups I have on my systems are A1,A2,A3,1,2,3. Hopefully this is enough info for you to tell me a list of frequencies.
We will assume your gig is in the United States. If you own Shure U series wireless, and the TV channels 51,52,53,54,66,67,68,69 are NOT in operation in your city, it is feasible to have up to 40 simultaneous U series systems in operation at one site. Twenty systems would be in the UB frequency band; the other twenty in the UA frequency band.
To discuss your exact needs in detail, please call Shure U.S. Applications Engineering during normal business hours at 800-516-2525, then press 4. As multiple wireless systems can be quite complex, we can save you time and headaches by discussing your requirements in real time via phone.

We strongly suggest that you contact the Shure distribution center for Australia. They are experts in what legal frequencies are available in Australia, and how many UHF systems can be used simultaneously.
They can help for certain. From the U.S., I can only guess about the current wireless laws in Australia. And your question should not be answered by a guess!
