Keep Wireless Mics Interference-Free
October 30, 2013
Decisions will soon be made by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that could negatively impact wireless microphone users, including orchestras and other performing arts organizations. Your member of Congress can go on record in support of the performing arts by becoming a cosponsor of a bill that would protect performing arts wireless technology from potential interference.
The Wireless Microphone Users Interference Protection Act of 2013 has been introduced by Congressman Bobby L. Rush (D-IL-01) and it asks the FCC to protect the existing space designated for wireless microphone users, so that users will not suffer interference during performances. The League has been actively meeting with offices on Capitol Hill to discuss the importance of protecting wireless microphone use, joining with such varied partners as the National Football League and the Southern Baptist Convention, as well as fellow performing arts organizations.
