I am setting up a gotomeeting event and I have a camera and laptop ready.  I am using a lapel mic and receiver that works just fine for audio for the meeting.  I was wondering if there was another setup I could use that would allow me to have 2 lapel mics and 1 receiver that would plug into the port on the laptop.  I have sent pics of the mic and receiver I currently am using.  I want 2 mics if possible so the presenters do not have to hand over the mic each time they speak at the podium.

Why not use bluetooth and connect both at the same time?

What is the range of bluetooth?  I need like 50 feet in all directions.  The device I use is 2.4GHZ signal.  Thought I would rather have use that rather than bluetooth.  Are there devices that can have 2 bluetooth lapel mics that work at the same time?

normally in this situation each microphone goes to its own receiver and the output of the receiver is sent to a MIXER which is then sent to the input of the device.

Analog audio is VERY simple. Having to mics on the SAME audio channel, will still work as expected. Since you're using the standard 3.5mm jack, you can use the splitter you'd normally use for splitting OUTGOING audio (ex. to two different speaker system, or having 2 headphones to watch a movie together). In this case, you'd be combining 2 mics, but works exactly the same..
