OFCOM have announced that they are extending access by three months to the channel range 61 to 69 until the 31st of December 2012. JFMG will continue to co-ordinate the use of channels 61 to 68 during this period.
Changes to UHF Radio Microphone Frequencies
The UK Government has announced that they will be selling off UHF radio mic frequency bands, to bring us in line with the rest of Europe, and to allow mobile phone operators to increase their ability to supply smart phone services.
This will affect all radio microphone users as the sell off includes the frequencies of Channel 69. Instead, Channel 38 will be home to licensed radio microphone users.
The result of this sell off is that the majority of radio mics currently in use will become both unusable, and illegal to use from 1st October 2012.
All our radio mics are ch 38 or ch 70
