Today, the airwaves are full of transmissions - and wireless microphone transmissions can suffer from interference.

Due to the incompetence and lack of forsight of our Australian Government, equipment suppliers have had difficulty finding safe frequencies for wireless equipment - and as a result wireless gear is prone to reliabilty issues. So if you can, use cables - and only use wireless if you have too.

The frequencies between 694MHz-820MHz (the digital dividend) was sold off for 4G services. From 1 January 2015, it became illegal to use wireless microphones or transmitters operating in the digital dividend. The new frequency range for legal use of wireless devices will be between 520MHz-694MHz and 1790MHz-1800MHz.

Available frequencies we can use varies from suburb to suburb!
