Electronic Media Policy Action
Orchestras and other performing artists and presenters have used wireless microphones to provide unrestricted on-stage movement and to deliver clear and accurate sound to appreciative audiences. Wireless systems operating on radio frequencies between TV broadcast channels are also used for backstage communications with stagehands to execute complex technical activity. Interference to these communications could compromise the safety of performers, technicians, and audiences.
Contacting Congress is simple and will make a difference. We have prepared an advocacy campaign with essential background, talking points, and a template letter for you to personalize your communication with policymakers.
