Due to the FCC Spectrum Auction, the 600 MHz frequency band (614 – 698 MHz) has been reallocated for wireless broadband use. With this reallocation, wireless microphone systems will eventually be prohibited from operating in the 600 MHz band by law. If you’re currently operating a 600 MHz wireless system, you will need to transition to a new system at some point over the next couple of years - anytime from now until July 13, 2020.
Due to the complexity of the reallocation, there is no way to accurately predict just how – or when – the changes will unfold. There’s no need to panic, but we are telling customers using wireless systems that operate in the 600MHz band that they should plan to transition to another range of spectrum.
