hi I'm Alyssa bulky wireless microphones like this one right here are now used everywhere from corporate buildings and school auditoriums to churches stadiums and performing arts venues many of these microphones operate on 600 megahertz frequencies a spectrum that until recently was licensed to broadcast TV stations in the United States in April 2017 the FCC sold most of this spectrum to cellular carriers for new 600 megahertz wireless operations carriers have already begun using these frequencies to test and build their 5g wireless networks if you're located in the US and you currently use 600 megahertz wireless mics here's what you need to know first you have until July 13 2020 to transition your mics out of the 600 megahertz band this is the cutoff date set by the FCC second you should not wait until 2020 to make the transition since carriers are already utilizing the 600 megahertz frequencies for 5g testing you may already be experiencing interference on your wireless mics if the frequency owner complains about interference from your mics the FCC could tell you to stop using the 600 megahertz band immediately third when replacing your microphone transmitters and receivers think ahead choose a band that will likely be open for a while for example 900 megahertz for large facilities or 2.4 gigahertz for smaller venues also look at upgrading to a digital wireless system a digital signal can be encrypted for security purposes and is also less likely to experience interference fourth work with a qualified AV integrator to determine the right solution for your organization's needs an experienced AV integrator will make sure that your new wireless microphone system works with your sound system and is professionally installed for best results finally if you're dealing with a large scale or multi-site deployment of new wireless microphone systems you and your a/v integrator consider partnering with a distributor such as an extend deliver the product to your installation sites for faster easier deployment to learn more about this and other professional AV solutions contact your local annex our representative or visit us online in annex or comm slash pro Eenie
