The UK recently completed Digital Switchover. This was the creation of new digital TV signals and the termination of the old analogue ones. As part of this switchover the frequencies allocated to radio mics and other entertainment based transmitters, known as PSME (Program-making, Special Events & Entertainment), were moved to a different part of the spectrum.
The new frequency allocations are as follows;
The new Shared License is now Channel 38 (606-614MHz) and can be used anywhere in the UK along with other users. Other Frequencies require a site specific license and may be subject to date or time restrictions.
Any radio equipment that currently operates on the 800MHz band, which includes channel 69, will need to be changed to new channel 38 equipment.
For the full details of the changes please visit the JFMG website
At Thames Audio all our radio equipment operates on the new Channel 38. All our hire stock radio mics and in-ear systems comply with the current regulations. Our Channel 38 Shared User License covers hirers for the first 12 frequencies. Licenses for additional frequencies are available on request.
