Fyi, I just got off the phone with Samson tech support. (I have six-pack of their Airline 77 wireless with the micro AL1 transmitter with internal condensor mic that we use for kids' shows and ensemble ... they're really convenient). Anyway, they have the same response as AKG at this point -- no perceived threat to their operation in the UHF bands, despite all of the publicity. The Samson mics operate in UHF 69, which is listed as one of the public safety bands. The support rep did say that their dev dept is monitoring the FCC activities, and if this became a "real" issue for their products they would post something on their web site and would likely provide accomodations to users of their products that will have the FCC conflict. But, like the AKG rep, they did not seem overly concerned about the issue as of this point. Maybe they're just keeping quiet until they have a solution, or maybe their legal dept already knows how to deal with gov't actions like this? There is also the thought that if the gov't is going to "condemn" frequency bands from open use and there are industries that have grown around them, that the gov't would provide accomodations. It works this way with land (i.e. condeming for right of way to build a highway, for example, the land owners who are forced to sell are paid fair market value for their property). So I'm curious to see what comes out of all this.
