New Regulations on Wireless Mics

Find out if you're affected

Beginning in 2017, the amount of TV band spectrum available for wireless microphone use is decreasing. A significant portion of the TV band spectrum in the 600 MHz band, has been repurposed for the new 600 MHz service band for use by other services, and will not continue to be available for wireless microphone use. 


Specifically, wireless microphones that operate in this 600 MHz service band (the 617-652 MHz and 663-698 MHz frequencies) will be required to cease operation no later than July 13, 2020. But may be required to cease operation sooner if they could cause interference to new wireless licensees that commence operations on their licensed spectrum in the 600 MHz service band.


Again, if you own systems operating in the 617-652 MHz or 663-698 MHz range, you are now operating outside the FCC's new guidelines. And you should begin looking for a replacement to avoid being found in violation. To find out more, visit the FCC's wireless microphone website at or give them a call at (888) CALL-FCC.



Transition Schedule

We wanted you to know that all of the wireless systems available at HTAV Pros are 100% compliant with the Federal Communication Commission's new rules governing wireless systems. You can be confident that these systems will work within the FCC's currently permitted frequency/power ranges. 


You can expect to see innovative new solutions from manufacturers, most have already released a new lines of products that work in this newly designated 500 MHz service band. Sense brand available at HTAV Pros is offering a whole new redesigned line of handheld mics and a bodypack mics that operate in this new band. They also offer a desktop charger now for both mics. These mics along with the new Sense wireless UHF mic receiver will allow users to operate while complying with new regulations.
