|Wireless Audio Devices and the Digital Dividend.pdf|
ACMA (The Australian Communications and Media Authority) has put out a fact sheet on changes that will affect wireless microphones.
These changes are part of the Federal government’s work to clear specific radiofrequency spectrum (known as the ‘digital dividend’) to use for 4G mobile broadband services from 1 January 2015. From this date wireless microphones and other audio devices in certain frequency ranges will become illegal due to potential interference with mobile broadband services.
Community groups and businesses using wireless microphones in schools and live music performance may be affected. This is a very real issue for some users and you can read the Music Council of Australia's statement on the subject, published on their website.
ACMA is strongly encouraging users to check their equipment and to start planning for the changes now. They have established a wireless microphone hub as an online resource for information on the changes.
