New frequencies for wireless microphones

Radio clubs are advised that a large number of wireless radio microphones currently operating under a Class Licence using frequencies between the analogue TV broadcasting channels (520-820MHz), will soon become illegal as the analogue TV frequencies are phased out this year.

An estimated 150,000 wireless radio microphones in use by churches, schools, entertainment venues, fitness instructors, tourism operators and community groups will be affected.

Now is the time for radio clubs and others to check their equipment because 694MHz to 820MHz will be withdrawn to provide the so-called "digital dividend" of spectrum made possible with an end of analogue TV in Australia.

Those radio clubs who own wireless microphones used for presentations are encouraged by the WIA to check the operating frequency of their equipment to ensure it remains compliant with the upcoming frequency re-allocation.
