“CHEAK!” Is the name of the young band from Luxembourg, which was selected for a Europe-wide video clip to secure cultural frequencies.
The “SOS – Save Our Spectrum” initiative is campaigning for the 2019 World Radiocommunications Conference to ensure that in the future there will also be frequency ranges for wireless production equipment such as wireless microphones. The World Radiocommunications Conference will begin in Egypt on October 28th and end on November 22nd. World radio conferences are held every four or five years.
Wireless microphones are used in the cultural and creative industries, the event industry, at sports events and in many leisure and hobby applications. Each microphone needs its own frequency in order to function. These frequencies are usually in the UHF spectrum between 470 and 694 MHz. There, the microphones share the area with the terrestrial broadcasting. But this area could be lost at the World Radiocommunications Conference.
Many European cultural organizations and the media are addressing this threat.
In order to make the voices heard, the umbrella organization, the “SOS – Save Our Spectrum” initiative, has launched a campaign to secure cultural frequencies. This campaign will take place across Europe and virally influence the World Radiocommunications Conference.
