FCC 600 MHz spectrum auction affects wireless intercoms July 2017

As a result of the 2017 FCC 600 MHz incentive auction that repurposed 84 MHz of spectrum, the use of wireless intercoms in the 600 MHz band will soon be prohibited by law.  The transition period could last up to 39 months but could end much earlier depending on your location. If you use wireless systems that operate in the 600 MHz band, you should plan to transition to another system.  You may visit the FCC’s Broadcast Incentive Auction page for more information.
