Recent rulings by the FCC on RF spectrum as applies to wireless microphones will have a profound effect on our industry in the years to come. Added to the loss of the 700 MHz band just a few short years ago, now the 600 MHz has been auctioned as well. Due to this upcoming loss of spectrum and the resulting crowding in the remaining UHF bands, the panel will also discuss the additional changes in regulations for wireless microphone compliance. Also covered will be the potential for new frequency bands to become available for wireless mic use on a shared basis along with some of the other bands currently available including VHF, 902-928 MHz, 941-960 MHz, 1.4 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 6 GHz.
