How FCC "White Space" Decision Will Affect U.S. Pro Audio

Document Thumbnail

[Feature] For wireless microphone operators below 698 MHz, the FCC’s recent actions yield little to be concerned about and much to be thankful for. The frequencies above 698 MHz will be gone starting in February of 2009 (in an action announced years ago and unrelated to new devices) but the rules for the new TV Band Devices (TVBDs) are so stringent that it is unlikely any interference will be caused to wireless mic systems, even to those operating illegally. In addition to setting very high technical requirements for TVBDs, the FCC finds that it is in the public interest to provide spectrum space for wireless microphones even if they are operated without the required license.
