Good news (for this school year!!)
I guess when put up for a final vote, congress decided to actually DELAY the transition to DTV. For us that means the 700mhz band remains free and open to use (which is great, cause in 11501 it is wide open, and will give us more mic options).
In other microphone news, after a chat with Sennheiser (our wireless mic company) they gave me some new frequencies to use for the 500/600mhz range and we are in good shape with those, as proven by the dress rehearsals at the Middle School production earlier today and yesterday.
