Schools warned to comply with new rules on wireless microphones

10 January 2013, Rhian Morgan

One of the country’s leading suppliers of professional audio and video equipment is warning schools and colleges to ensure they comply with new rules in relation to the use of wireless microphones.

Following the digital TV switchover, some radio frequencies currently used by wireless microphones have been re-allocated to allow the broadcast of Freeview television signals and new 4G mobile technologies. 'The knock-on effect is that many wireless microphones in use may now conflict with these signals and are therefore illegal to use,' says Glyn Chapman, the managing director of EAV.

Not all equipment is affected by the changes but the technicalities can be complicated by the number of microphones in use and their location and frequency settings. The rule is that the operation of wireless equipment in the 800MHz band is illegal as of 31 December 2012.

'We’re shocked by just how little awareness there is amongst schools, colleges and universities about the changes in the law,' added Chapman. 'In our experience, up to three-quarters of education users don’t understand the changes, let alone know if their equipment is compliant.'

EAV is offering free advice on wireless microphones, with a free checking tool at or for more help, ring 0845 125 9409.
