Changes in the wireless microphone legal frequencies have happened recently:
Did you know that as of March 2015 you can no longer use a large chunk of wireless microphones or radio microphones in NZ? Frequencies that were used in New Zealand for wireless microphones in the past can no longer be used. The frequencies between 698-806 MHz have been allocated to digital TV, and will therefore no longer be available for use with audio and cordless microphone hire systems.

We can help you find replacement microphones, or help you trade in your out of date wireless microphone for new ones that are in the legal range.
