The W-1KU systems operate in the UHF range using one or three banks of 1000 channels:

  • Band 3 : 520.0-544.9MHz – This frequency band is fully compliant with the most up-to-date FCC regulations and operates on 520.0-544.9MHzz frequency bands which are comprehensively available for unlicensed wireless microphone use throughout the Continental United States.
  • Band 2 : 795.0-819.9MHz – This is an international frequency band. This band is NOT compliant with FCC regulations and it’s illegal in Continental United States.
  • Band 1 : 672.0-696.9MHz – US Frequency – This frequency band is discontinued and wireless systems that operate in this frequency band will be required to cease operation no later than July 13, 2020.
