But wireless mics were always supposed to be "licensed" but almost no one did.  Technically, only broadcasters were licensed to use the TV white spaces.  On a practical level, the license just gave broadcasters protection from interference (they could shut someone down if interfering with their wireless mics).  With the new rules, the FCC has largely allowed unlicensed use of wireless mic in the specified white spaces.  Licensed wireless mics still had protection.

However, 169 MHz might be a little different.  But then, why not license it?  As a broadcaster, you have the right to and as a non-commercial it doesn't cost you anything.  Then you are protected.

But even if you didn't, as long as nothing is on that frequency, it is doubtful anyone is even going to care.  You could talk to your local frequency coordinator to verify.

By the way, I have a bunch of Comtech VHF wireless IFB equipment I would be willing to give away if anyone can use it.

Hmm.
It says "licensed."

Which says

 

Bands outside of TV bands that are available for wireless microphone use.  In 2015, the Commission provided for new opportunities for licensed wireless microphone operations in spectrum outside of the TV broadcast band, including in the 169-172 MHz band and portions of the 900 MHz band, the 1435-1525 MHz, and the 6875-7125 MHz bands.  Unlicensed wireless microphone operations are permitted in several bands outside of the TV bands, including the 902-928 MHz band, the 1920-1930 MHz band, and portions of the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. 

 

and answers Brian's question with... yes, you can still use them.

What's the status of legally being able to use VHF wireless mics?  I've got an older AudioTechnica that runs at 169.505 MHz that I want to install at another station I work with, and am wondering if it's even legal to use any more?

 

Thanks,

Brian
