Rio Rancho, NM - Dec 5, 2008 - Lectrosonics has instituted a new service policy to aid customers with products in the 700MHz band. The FCC recently ruled that Part 74 users (auxiliary broadcast devices, including wireless microphones) must vacate this frequency band between 698-806MHz, affecting blocks 27, 28, and 29.
The plan offered by Lectrosonics allows owners of current generation products in these blocks, including SM Series, UM400-type, UH400-type, UT, LM-type, IM and MM400-type transmitters, and UCR411-type, UCR401, Venue-type, SR-type, UCR100 and R400-type receivers to have the frequency block changed to a lower range for a nominal fee. The cost for this modification varies by model depending upon the cost of the radio-frequency board replacement. For older generation products in blocks 27, 28 and 29, including the UCR211, UCR201, UM200, and UM100, if purchased new from an authorized dealer within the last five years, Lectrosonics is offering a reduced cost for replacement with new products in lower frequency blocks.
