FCC order could prove costly to churches
from Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
The Federal Communications Commission has issued an order that could have far-reaching -- and very expensive -- consequences for organizations or individuals using wireless microphones. The commission said wireless microphone users have until June 12, to modify or replace equipment that operates on the 700-megahertz frequency. "We will have to explore our options concerning our cordless mikes," said Donald Immel, senior pastor at The New Stanton Assembly of God Church in Westmoreland County. He was aware of talk about new rules, but had not heard about the FCC's Jan. 15 order. The church uses two earpiece mikes and two hand-held microphones.
