The 698 to 806 MHz band is the band typically used by low power auxiliary stations and wireless microphones. A report and order revising these rules is available on the FCC web site.
In a statement, also available on the FCC web site, Chairman Julius Genachowski said;
“Today the Commission is taking necessary and essential action to complete the digital television transition, by requiring wireless microphone users to exit the 700 MHz Band by June 12, 2010. Our decision will accelerate the buildout of 4G wireless networks, and will prevent interference with first responders who rely on the 700 MHz Band for mission-critical communications.”
While wireless microphones and other devices currently using the band must discontinue operation no later than June 12th, 2010, sale and import of new devices will be prohibited as soon as the rules are publish in the Federal Register.
