Looking Into The Future. What Will Happen To 700 MHz Mic Users
Why Is My Lead Singer Doing A Weather Report?
It has been a year and a half since the FCC mandated the end of use of wireless microphones in the 700 mHZ broadcast spectrum. It is fair to assume that any wireless mic user that intends to comply with the law has either replaced their offending mics or retired them.
Lots of owners of these now obsolete devices are apparently thinking that it is highly unlikely that the FCC will devote enforcement resources to chasing down "small fish" and that even if they do get caught, it will probably mean no more than a slap on the wrist. The mics still work, right?
This won't happen during the sound check or rehearsal (that's not when things go wrong), but rather during the peak of your concert or event.
