    Wireless in 600 MHz band at risk of being banned

    Now the F.C.C. is again seeking prime spectrum for sale to wireless carriers. Under its current plan, the commission is aiming to persuade some broadcast stations to give up their airwaves or to agree to move to another spot, freeing up for auction the bands in the 600- to 700-megahertz range, where wireless mikes and other devices often operate.

    The issue isn't that they don't need to operate in 600mhz band it's that 3 Yrs ago the FCC took the 700mhz band causing some people hundreds of thousands of dollars. Now they want to take the 600s causing us to resort to the already overcrowded 500mhz band. If this happens we can basically say good bye to the UHF spectrum as it pertains to wireless mics.

    This isn't new news.  The plan is to re-allocate 120 MHz out of the TV band which is more than half of what is currently legal and will put all of that off limits for wireless mics by 2021.  The Obama administration rubber stamped a go on this years ago.

    Line6 operates at 2.4GHz. Good enough for the girls I date.

    I know ummm, someone who's 700 guitar wireless still works perfectly. No black helicopters at his gigs yet either.
