600MHz Wireless Auction Info Overview
With the 600MHz auction complete, it’s time to start thinking about how the changes will affect your inventory. The upgrade or replacement path is going to be unique for almost every user though, with changes differing from region to region, and options for moving forward varying depending on the specific make and models of gear you own.
All of this can become a terrible headache, especially when faced with the potential tens of thousands of dollars you may be spending to continue operating your wireless gear legally. In an attempt to consolidate the mass of info on the subject into one central location, I’ve compiled a list of resources that will hopefully help you find the path forward for your situation.
There is some great information in the various links below, and even if you don’t own any gear from some of these brands, I think you’ll find them all valuable in better understanding the changes that are coming down the line.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and stories in the comments below. If you have any first hand accounts of system upgrades or photos you’d like to share, let us know!
Below you’ll find each manufacturer’s general explanation page & another with their options for upgrading or trade-ins.

And for those of you still operating 700MHz Audio Gear … that stuff has been illegal in the United States since 2010. Take that gear out of service ASAP! You can sometimes sell it on eBay to someone overseas who can still use it, but it’s no good here.
