Niles, IL (July 28, 2017)—Shure is offering a rebate of up to $500 per channel on the purchase of new Shure wireless microphones and personal monitor systems accompanied by the trade-in of wireless systems operating in the 600 MHz frequency band.
The rebate is intended to help wireless users adapt to changing conditions resulting from the reallocation of portions of the 600 MHz band (614–698 MHz) to mobile broadband services. Products from Shure and from other wireless manufacturers are eligible for the trade-in program. The rebate is effective until April 30, 2018.
According to FCC rules, wireless microphones and personal monitors that can operate in the auctioned UHF spectrum (616-653 MHz and 663-698 MHz) may not be used after a transition period. If a local mobile broadband licensee begins using these frequencies before that date, the wireless user must change frequencies to avoid interfering with them.
T-Mobile, which acquired the largest chunk of spectrum, recently announced that it will begin operations in parts of the country within the coming month, but did not specify where or at what frequencies.
“As a result of the recently completed incentive auction of UHF spectrum, wireless microphone users in the U.S. should plan for the retirement and replacement of systems that currently operate above 614 MHz,” said Mark Brunner, vice president of corporate and government relations at Shure. “Our number one priority is to help people make the transition from legacy products to new systems that will provide dependable service and comply with updated FCC regulations.”
Customers may submit rebate forms after the purchase of the following new Shure wireless products: Axient Digital; BLX; GLXD and GLXD Advanced; PGXD; PSM300; PSM900; PSM1000; QLXD; and ULXD.
