Trouble ahead for 600 MHz Wireless Mic Users
Recent FCC 600 MHz Auction will impact many wireless mic users.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently auctioned off a large portion of wireless frequencies typically used for wireless mics. The FCC has ruled that users must cease operating their 614-698 MHz wireless systems no later than July 13th, 2020. Details about the FCC decision can be found at:
This change will affect roughly half of all wireless systems in use today!
If your Wireless Mics or In-Ear-Monitor systems operate in the 600 MHz band, they ultimately will have to be replaced with new systems.
