VHF wireless handheld question
« on: June 21, 2020, 05:08:53 pm »

I have acquired an EV MR-2000A receiver with a MT 2000A handheld (ND767). It is VHF at 170.245
My friend who had this passed on and could this working unit be placed in service like at a H.OW. or other ??

I tried to find allocation information in this band and not sure yet if this rig is still viable...
Thank you for any input

VHF systems should be fine now since all TV channels have moved out of this space and it has not been re-allocated to other services. Those Ancient and cheap wireless mics are getting a second chance at life. You just have to find 9 volt batteries for them! lol.

This frequency is in the VHF Land Mobile Radio pool and requires a Part 90 license to operate, if a license would even be granted for this type of equipment, which is most doubtful. Many, many years ago this frequency was in the Part 74(D) Remote Pickup, but no more. In short, there's no legal way to use it.

All TV broadcasters have absolutely not moved out of VHF, and in fact many are moving into it from UHF in many markets (cities).  VHF is far less congested than UHF in most markets, and we fortunately can use its white spaces, but it's not a completely free and clear band for us.  We all must continue to do our due diligence to avoid licensed operations in every band.

Thank you Mr. Cohen. And the other contributors.
I now have my answer.
Guess I acquired an anchor for a toy sailboat.

It is what I wanted to establish.
Again many thanks.
