OPERATION OF WIRELESS MICROPHONES (AND SIMILAR DEVICES) IN 700 MHz BAND PROHIBITED AFTER JUNE 12, 2010
Under a new FCC rule, anyone who uses a wireless microphone (or similar device) that operates in the 700 MHz Band must stop operating their wireless microphone (or similar device) no later than June 12, 2010.
All users of 700 MHz Band wireless microphones (and similar devices) who wish to continue to use their equipment – including users such as theaters, churches, schools, conference centers, theme parks, and musicians – will need to retune or replace, if necessary their equipment no later than June 12, 2010. Wireless microphones (and similar devices) that operate outside of the 700 MHz Band are not affected by the FCC’s actions and may continue to operate.For those who need more information:

For those stuck with a bunch of 700 MHz wireless, Shure and Sennheiser are offering generous rebates on new wireless. But if they seem fuzzy or if you just want to vent, call me at the phone number below.
Be seen. Be heard.
