I do not know a lot about this frequency stuff but will this affect the remotes for things such as the virtual soundman, mp3tech, jumbo sidekick, remote drawing board, the viper and other remote controlled devices?

I don't think it will, because of the range in which I think they operate, but I'm not sure.

We don't know for sure, but we DO know that there will be more problems there.

Thanks, Dan. Are they not going to allow or allocate another band wave for this stuff? They can't put performing artists out of business. That is also bad for the economy.

Everyone that is interested should check out the "overview" & "FAQ" at the Shure site.

From reading the information on the Shure website, it appears that new "white space" devices will have to be designed so that they can recognize wireless microphones, etc. operating on the same channel, and switch to an alternate channel.

Exactly - however, according to the articles posted on the same site, the current technology to do this is currently primitive and unreliable...in other words, the more powerful systems are more likely to interfere with and overpower the less powerful wireless mic systems and the device designers will sit back and utter an insincere "oops!" as they count their cash - hence the concern.

I just talked with a friend who said the Theater/Broadway people are all trying to fight this to get this from being from implemented. It would cost them a fortune.

Let's hope that they can get something worked out. I am sure that the New York theater guys have lot more clout than we do.

I agree, Richard, and I imagine that broadcast & church people have even MORE clout!

Yes, the church people might even have a higher contact they can reach by prayer.

I was thinking in terms of political influence and lobbying power ... but whatever.

LOL! Running for my life! All I need is one more "favor" from the government.

From the prospective of a lobbyist (and old graduate school professor - Marketing, Management, & Finance) the news is:

"Full Stupid Ahead!"


It's tough enough working with a Democrat Congress who sees it as their job to punish the productive and reward net consumers (those who ONLY consume without producing).

Now we are punishing those with good thrift habits (those who save and furnish the ONLY source of investment) to protect the middlemen (financial institutions) that ONLY function using Other Peoples' Money. They are not invested! Savers are!

Investing in your own equipment to make yourself productive automatically qualifies you as a host animal for the parasites. It is politically incorrect to kill life threatening parasites.

Raiding white space is just another method of punishing the invested to favor the "free ride" boys.

You don't need a lobbyist, you need a new Congress that represents the productive and the invested. This Congress thinks that forcing you to replace your equipment (useless consumption to replace what you already have that works) stimulates production.

Of course that is a very half-baked idea. If you invests your savings to produce the new equipment, you no longer have it to use to buy the new equipment. Parasites don't nourish host animals. That would be "investing". They don't invest like you do.

A lobbyist can't help you here until you make changes in Congress. (Presidents don't make laws! Congress does.) It's time to reinvest! VOTE!

Gosh, I wish I knew how you really felt.

White space is better than blue space or red space for that matter. Most of the space is between their ears.

Richard,

As rodeo clowns we often encountered a lot of bulls with big horns. We considered them politician bulls. By looking at the horns, you could see a point over here and another point way over there but in between there was just a lot of BULL!

And I approve of this message (Does that make it politically correct?)

Sounds like Y2K all over again! The entertainment world is about to come crashing down! :-0

Fingers crossed (again).
