Samson 600 MHz Wireless Transition

Link: Samson 600 MHz Transition and Rebate Form

The FCC has auctioned off a portion of the 600MHz band (614–698MHz) that many wireless microphone manufactures, including Samson, have used in their products. The 600MHz spectrum will be repurposed in the future for new wireless broadband services, and that repurposed spectrum will not continue to be available for use with wireless microphones that operate in that frequency range(1). However, this repurposed spectrum will continue to be available for use between now and July 12, 2020.

What does this mean to you?

On July 13, 2020, after the transition is complete, all wireless systems that operate in the 600MHz band (including Samson “N Channel” or “C Band”) will be illegal to use. Between now and then,  you should transition your 600MHz wireless systems to other wireless systems that are not in this spectrum. Samson Technologies currently manufacturers a variety of wireless systems that operate outside of the 600MHz spectrum.

If you purchased a Samson wireless system that operates in the 600 MHz spectrum after January 1, 2017, please contact Samson Technologies directly via phone at 800-3SAMSON (800-372-6766) or by email at samson600mhz@samsontech.com to have your system replaced at no charge.

If you have a Samson wireless system that operates in the above stated Channels or Bands that was purchased before January 1, 2017, Samson has a plan in place to offer rebates to customers that purchase new Samson systems to replace Samson systems they own in the 600MHz band.

REMEMBER, YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR REBATE CLAIM BEFORE JULY 1, 2018
