The time to replace those old 600 MHz wireless systems is now
Have you been putting off replacing your older 600 MHz wireless systems? You’re not alone. The FCC’s auction of the 600 MHz spectrum for systems such as wireless mics and in-ear monitors means that these wireless systems at greater risk of interference or even complete failure.
Risks of Not Replacing 600 MHz Wireless Systems
The most common issues are ‘popping,’ static, erratic signals, and even loss of transmitted sound. The wave of 600 MHz mobile devices invading these frequencies means time is now of the essence and putting off replacement is no longer an option, even for those in seemingly rural areas. If your 600 MHz wireless microphone or in-ear monitor systems are suddenly prone to issues after years of operation, the mobile device transmissions on this spectrum are likely the cause.
Upgrade to Get Compliant and Stay Safe
The simple solution for smaller wireless systems (10 devices or fewer) is to replace existing systems with a new frequency-agile system from a single manufacturer. In this way, the coordination of frequencies is made much easier due to the manufacturer’s software to manage their own systems and use auto-setup to coordinate multiple wireless devices. In this way, replacing old 600 MHz wireless systems with newer wireless systems makes combining wireless mics, in-ear monitors, intercom stations, and wireless instruments is pretty straightforward right out of the box.
