Performing Arts Wireless Microphone Working Group Conducting Survey on Usage of Wireless Devices

FOH Staff • News • January 14, 2020

The Performing Arts Wireless Microphone Working Group has lobbied the FCC on behalf of users of wireless gear since 2007.

WASHINGTON, DC – The Performing Arts Wireless Microphone Working Group, a coalition of performing arts entities whose members use wireless mics, backstage comms and wireless services for the hearing impaired, is conducting a survey of theatrical organizations that rely on these devices for live stage productions. The survey of wireless device users ends Jan. 24, 2020.

“To support our current efforts to advocate with the Federal Communications Commission, we need to gather information from the field. Current FCC rules require that an entity use 50 or more wireless devices to be eligible for a Part 74 License, which provides access to interference protection through the geo-location database as well as access to better frequencies,” the group noted.

Performing Arts Wireless Microphone Working Group members include: Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York, The Association of Performing Arts Professionals, Dance/USA, The Educational Theatre Association, The Future of Music Coalition, The League of American Orchestras, The National Alliance for Musical Theatre, OPERA America, Recording Academy and Theatre Communications Group.
