The 600 MHz Wireless Trade-in Programs
Attention Pro Audio Wireless Users
Let SE Systems help you navigate through the 600MHz jungle of products affected by the newest FCC rulings.
Over the next few years, the FCC’s Incentive Auction will prohibit customers from operating wireless microphones in the 600 MHz frequency band. The auction impacts the 600 Megahertz (“MHz”) band, specifically 614-698 MHz. Your current wireless systems may be affected. New rules now in effect for operating wireless microphones and similar devices will restrict their use in certain bands of the spectrum currently used for television broadcast. As a result, some equipment changes may be needed for local theaters, churches, schools, conference centers, sports stadiums and other users of such devices. SE Systems is here to help users make the transition to non 600 MHz gear. If you own a wireless microphone or in-ear system that operates in the 600 MHz band, you need to take advantage of the trade-in programs offered by the major manufacturers of wireless gear. Three of the largest wireless manufacturers have Trade-In programs that can help users replace their 600 MHz gear. These programs will not last forever, so the time to replace is now. Let the SE Systems staff help you buy the best wireless unit for your needs, and get a rebate by trading in your 600 MHz gear.
Audio-Technica 600 MHz Wireless Rebate
Audio-Technica is offering a “Trade-In On Your Terms” program to help you make the switch out of 600 MHz when necessary. For each 600 MHz wireless system you trade in (regardless of manufacturer) you’ll receive a rebate on an eligible Audio-Technica wireless system. To give you the flexibility to budget and switch to a new system, A-T is running this trade-in program from August 15, 2017, through March 31, 2019. Verify that your trade-in system operates in the 600 MHz band. Your receiver and/or transmitter should include a sticker with the frequency range. If any part of the listed frequency range falls within the 614 – 698 MHz range, your system will eventually be prohibited from operating and is eligible for trade-in. Purchase an eligible Audio-Technica wireless system from an authorized Audio-Technica dealer in the U.S. and its territories between 8/15/2017 and 3/31/2019.

Sennheiser 600 MHz Wireless Rebate
Sennheiser offers a wide range of wireless mics and monitoring systems for any budget, which fully comply with current and future FCC rules and regulations. Wireless mics and monitoring systems are currently allowed to operate from 470 - 698 MHz. In the next few years, the FCC will limit operation to 470 - 608 MHz. While the majority of wireless systems in use today will be unaffected, 614-698 MHz will be repurposed, and will largely become unavailable to wireless microphones after a transition period that will end on July 13, 2020. To check if your current wireless will be affected, look for a printed sticker on your equipment indicating its frequency range. On Sennheiser wireless, this information is printed on both transmitters and receivers and is often visible on the main display. Purchase new wireless from an authorized Sennheiser dealer from June 14th, 2017 through December 31st, 2017. Send back your 600MHz wireless unit regardless of manufacturer for rebate.

Shure 600 MHz Wireless Rebate
The Shure 600 MHz Wireless Rebate allows you to trade in your eligible system (regardless of manufacturer) for a rebate with the purchase of a new system. This rebate offer is available for purchases made from April 17, 2017, until April 30, 2018. Due to the FCC Incentive Auction, the use of wireless microphones and personal monitor systems in the 600 MHz Band eventually will be prohibited by law. 614-698 MHz will be repurposed, and will largely become unavailable to wireless microphones after a transition period that will end on July 13, 2020. If you use wireless systems that operate in the 600 MHz Band, then you should plan to transition to another range of spectrum. Rebates are paid per channel. To qualify for the full rebate amount, the number of returned channels must match the number of purchased channels. Systems come in a variety of configurations. Receivers may have multiple channels. Personal monitor system transmitters also may have multiple channels. Receiver types include tabletop, camera mount, bodypack, and rack mount.
