Bannisters Sound Communications

As you may be aware the government plan to sell off part of the current radio microphone spectrum. This will affect channel 69 and effectively means that radio microphones using frequencies 790.000 to 862.00 MHz UHF will be illegal to operate as of 2013

While a number of radio microphone users will not be affected by these changes, it is important to insure that the radio microphone systems you currently use are not transmitting within the frequency range of 790.000 to 862.000 MHz UHF. (Access to the 14 shared UHF UK channels in Channel 69 and coordinated frequencies in the band 790 – 862 will continue until 31st December 2012).Older systems on VHF frequencies 173.000 to 175.800 MHz will not be affected . Also Channel 70 863.000 to 864.900 MHz will remain unaffected.The govenment has also allocated a new frequency band on Channel 38. Some multi channel eqipement may be recalibrated to channel 70. See links below

Most radio microphone systems will have a label on the rear of the receiver or transmitter stating the frequency it transmits on, some multi channel systems will have a digital readout displaying the frequency in use.If you are unable to find the opperating frequency or are uncertain if your equipment can be recalibrated away from the affected channel please do contact use.

The government has now closed any oppartunity for compensation

We are always willing to discuss your needs with regard to the replacement of any radio microphone equipment,or just simply to assist you in ascertaining the frequency your existing systems or to recalibrate to channel 70.
