Wireless Microphones and Monitors
Wireless Microphones and In-Ear Monitors in the UK are generally available at VHF (170 - 210 MHz) and UHF (470 - 790 MHz).
There are three ways you can legally use them:
The ranges 173.8 - 175 MHz and 863 - 865 MHz and 2400 - 2483.5 MHz can be used without a Licence subject to the requirements of The Wireless Telegraphy (Exemption) (Amendment) Regulations 2006. These ranges are also used by other low power equipment so can be subject to interference.
UK Wireless Microphone Licence (Shared frequencies in Ch38)UHF shared frequencies can be used anywhere in the UK once licensed. The Licence can also cover anyone hiring from the licensee. Frequencies on this Licence are provided on a non protected basis as they could be shared with other users in the local area. JFMG do not coordinate the use of these frequencies.
Licence fees for annual assignments are based on a fees cap of 4 X 48 hour periods so there are no financial penalties on the licensee nor will there be any refund payments as a result of a Licence revocation as described above.
Coordinated frequenciesCoordinated frequencies are licensed by JFMG at a specific site for short or long term. They provide the best protection against interference from other licensees and are planned to avoid interference from television transmissions.
You can book online or download an application form.
