Also, it says this:

Spectrum will continue to be available for wireless microphone use on the other TV channels 2-36 (TV band frequencies that fall below 608 MHz), on portions of the 600 MHz guard band (the 614-616 MHz frequencies) and the 600 MHz duplex gap (the 653-663 MHz frequencies), and in various other spectrum bands outside of the TV bands. FCC 15-100, FCC 15-99

So CERTAIN 600 MHz mics will still be permitted. It would appear that these bands will remain available:

~600-607.999 MHz 

~614-616 MHz

~653-663 MHz

Well, I'm not exactly sitting corrected... LOL  but the question was whether using a wireless microphone in the 169Mhz band was still permitted - which it certainly is still permitted. 
There are many older wireless microphones which operate in bands which are strictly prohibited now, for either licensed or unlicensed operation.   
The 169-172Mhz  band noted as available for licensed microphone usage.  Which means you can file for and obtain a license to use that microphone in that band and have full protection should you be accused of causing any interference.  Using one in that band which is unlicensed means that in a public setting (ie a live sporting event) then you must turn yours off to allow a licensed user to have the spectrum.  That's not likely the way Brian intends to use the microphone at a radio station, but if he is, then that is his restriction.

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
