The FCC Public Notice on Wireless Mike Registration
In mid-September 2012, the FCC published a Public Notice (PN) regarding an Unlicensed Wireless Microphone Registration System. The registration system, per this PN, is meant for certain limited cases, such as major sporting events, live theatrical productions/shows, and other major events where large numbers of wireless microphones will be used and cannot be accommodated in the available TV channels. However, it might not be that simple.
This meeting will discuss what the PN says, who is affected, and what you should start thinking about.
Larry Will, a consulting engineer, will lead off by explaining what the PN says and how the registration system works. Other invited presenters may include station DOE’s, manufacturer reps, and representatives from sports and theatrical venues.
