If you own a wireless mic that operates in the 700 MHz band (between 698 and 806 MHz), as of June 12,
2010, you will be prohibited from using it. This frequency band is no longer used for analog TV after the
switch to digital TV and is now being used by law enforcement and emergency services.

Chris Lyons, manager of technical and educational communications for Shure Microphones, says
“The 700 MHz band has been reallocated and the bottom line is that any wireless mic that operates
in the 700 MHz band—and that’s a lot of them—needs to be replaced.”

OPERATION OF WIRELESS MICROPHONES IN THE 700 MHZ BAND
IS PROHIBITED AFTER JUNE 12, 2010 - Fcc.gov
