Shure’s 700 MHz Rebate Program Ends Dec. 31
NILES, ILL.: Shure Inc., said this week it’s 700 MHz system
rebate program would be ending as of Dec. 31, 2009. Shure has been offering up
to $1,000 on trade-ins of its wireless systems designed for use in the 700 MHz
band (698-806 Mhz), as well as qualifying systems of other manufacturers. The
700 MHz bandwidth previously used for the DTV transition is now in the hands of
the cell phone companies that won the licenses at FCC auction.
“The deadline for our wireless rebate program is fast-approaching,” said Mark
Humrichouser, general manager of Shure’s Americas Business Unit. “Unfortunately,
some customers are unaware that Verizon, AT&T, and other new licensees have
already begun to use the 700 MHz band. Service trials are underway in
several U.S. cities, so it’s only a matter of time before wireless microphones
and personal monitors operating in this band begin to experience interference.”
