Microphone-maker Shure objected to a proposal that wireless mics be deemed “co-equal” to newly emerging unlicensed devices, TV Technology reported.

In ex parte comments to the Federal Communications Commission, Shure wrote, “On June 8, 2009, Verizon Wireless submitted an ex parte letter proposing radical changes to the regulation of wireless microphones in the core television bands that would effectively leave wireless microphones and many users nationwide who rely on wireless-microphone technology completely vulnerable to devastating interference. On June 18, 2009, Public Knowledge filed an ex parte notice acknowledging that it, too, urged acting chairman [Michael] Copps and his legal advisors to adopt similar changes. These changes, essentially relegating wireless microphones to Part 15 status, were described as a ‘workable’ plan that provides ‘certainty, speed and flexibility.’ This characterization is completely false and should be rejected.”
