Well it's a good thing I read this thread.  Does that batter box have a replaceable or built in battery?  Can't really tell from the web page.
Page says:
"Power module has 30-50 hour battery life (12v A23 battery)"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A23_battery

Thanks, I misunderstood that description.  Must be getting senile.

Here's my "don't have permission" rig:

https://soundprofessionals.com/product/SP-SPSB-4/

https://www.church-audio.com/product-category/microphones/#shop (I have a set of both CA-14 omnis and cardioids)

The mics look to be out of stock, any idea how often they restock?

I'm sorry, I don't.

Don't hold your breath. Order, but also look for a set of used ones

FYI the mods have to continuously make clear Community Audio is not for bands that are not approved for LMA. It is for "other" types of audio that need archiving, not a catch all pirate bay type place to avoid copyright law. Try to get your bands to allow archiving on LMA and it they don't want to then don't put their stuff in Community Audio either.

Old news. We've evolved our position on this. If you are taping with permission, but can't get the artist on the LMA (some just can't figure out how to reply to an email), Community Audio is okay. Some artists that have historically already said no should not be uploaded to CA - Phish, DMB, Mule, Panic, Black Crowes, and others.

I don't think I'll personally have much luck with contacting a Korean Girl Group about posting recordings, BUT... they allow Recordings from a Phone during the concert, so I wouldn't see why it would be any different than just a audio recording.

I can speak Korean really well; not native, but more than well enough to compose an email in Korean to ask about this.  If interested, PM me.

^This. They show up a fair bit in the Yard Sale here. Very good mics, but extremely, uhh, unpredictable vendor.

Good to know, I'll keep my eyes peeled when the time comes to take the plunge ::)

That's an understatement if ever there was one! Frankly, I would avoid CA mics solely for that reason. Good luck if there are ever any issues...

Not to discount anyone else's experiences, but what it's worth, the vendor worked with me when the delivery went awry.

^ That's great! Not common, but great. There have been TONS of threads over the years documenting Mr. Church's questionable, and often surly, customer service...

He's always been pleasant with me. Timely, hell no, but pleasant.

Anyway, now that there are people here who are expert in repairing Church mics, I wouldn't hesitate to buy a pair in the yard sale.

Ran the SP-SPSB-4 with CA-14s into an R-07 last night with very good results. Love that it plugs directly in the deck but it does tend to spin, constantly worried that it might accidentally pull out of the jack.  Was thinking a little velcro on the box & deck might correct that.  Low profile and one less cord are big positives

^ my roland r07 is my other common rig - agreed about the spinning. Thankfully I've never had it pull out or make any noise artifacts from the movement.

He has his defenders and detractors. All pretty well documented here. I wish he had been pleasant with me, as well as timely (definitely not even close), but he was just plain rude at times. He deleted most of his posts here, many of which showed the same ill-mannered tendency.

As for repairs, as far as I know that is confined to cable repair. If you have problems with the capsules, or a pre-amp, you'll still have to go to the source. I had an EE friend try to take a look at a Church pre for me and he said there was so much gunk melted into the box (presumably to prevent theft of his incredible designs), that is was not workable as far as a fix. Just my two cents...
