Regarding their statement: "The ruling, which was issued on September 23, reduces the number of UHF channels available to licensed wireless microphone systems to two per city." is patently false.

The FCC will be setting aside two PROTECTED channels (12 MHz total) in each city. It is not only for licensed users of wireless microphones, it is for all wireless microphone users. In addition, it is still possible to use licensed or unlicensed wireless mics anywhere else between 470-698 MHz (608-612 MHz excluded for radio astronomy) as long as the wireless mics function. One more thing: licensed and unlicensed wireless mic users can apply for temporary local reprieve from broadband devices by registering their event with the FCC-sanctioned database.

Don't forget that the database and the new broadband transmission standard have yet to be finalized. This is likely to take more than a year to be in place and perhaps as much as two years. During that time, there are no changes for wireless mic users.

Sincerely,
