Wireless Frequency help?

Hello - all! Great to be back on CB. The pandemic moved my responsibilities elsewhere for a couple years, and I am now back to the theater work I had been doing.

Wondering if anyone has an easy way to create a new list of usable frequencies in the 14226 zip code (just outside Buffalo, NY)?

I opened my sound system for the first time in 2 years, and (predictably) discovered that television and other allocations have trampled my 20 unit wireless system, rendering 13 usable mics. The mics are mixed brand (AKG and Sennheiser). Based on what I am seeing, I am a little skeptical that I will be able to get all of them back up, but hoping for the best.

Since I have been out of it for a time, I understand I may have to seek out new equipment or make other shifts in thinking - open to what those are. If we need new equipment, recommendations of what frequency ranges to look into would be helpful.

Frequency sets I have are:
470-516 - Three (3) Sennheiser channels
500.1-530 - Ten (10) AKG channels
516-558 - Two (2) Sennheiser channels
570-600 - Five (5) AKG channels (4/5 currently have interference)

Thank you for any help you might offer!

With a mixed bag of makes/models there isn't a particular advantage to any single manufacturer's software, but having both Shure's Wireless Workbench and Sennheiser's WSM

Here you go. This may work. If you don't already have it, I'd be looking at how to get proper antenna distribution so you don't have a nest of half-wave antennas with all those Rx.

A variable I have not seen mentioned yet on this thread is that with Buffalo’s close proximity to Canada they will be all kinds of frequency interference from southern Ontario. Canada has a different set of rules compared to the FCC here in the United States. As somebody who lives and works just up the road in Rochester I deal with this from time to time as well.
