FCC Adopts Order To Clear 700 MHz - check your wireless Mic

January 15th, the FCC adopted an order prohibiting the further distribution and sale of devices that operate in the 700 MHz frequency. The order will primarily impact the use of wireless microphone systems that currently operate in the 700MHz band. The FCC is providing a sunset period until June 12, 2010, one year from the DTV Transition

It isn't exactly news - I actually thought it had already happened! - but now it's official.

The FCC's website has a page that lists various wireless manufacturers products that are effected by this order, so check your - older - gear!

You can also contact the FCC’s Consumer Center for more information about wireless microphones or other communications issues by calling 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice
