How do I go about choosing a frequency band as in P1 or P2 ?

Lee Douglas:
You might check with Ford Audio Service. Gary Ford works your area quite bit and could probably shed some light on what works there.

No kidding - I'd love to have that "dilemma".  Here in Chicago there are frequency bands that are now completely filled with strong DTV stations.  Even before the repack Sennheiser G band was barely usable here.

Go to https://www.rabbitears.info/searchmap.php.  Enter your venue's decimal coordinates.  Select NO for "Shift Shown Location for Privacy".

On the results page that comes up, select RF Channel next to "Sort By".  Select Yes next to "Hide Off-Air"  Don't operate wireless on any TV RF channel (shown in parenthesis) indicated as "Poor", "Fair", or "Good".

I tried this but don't see the RF range as described.  What am I missing?

You didn't sort by RF channel and you didn't hide off-air.  https://www.rabbitears.info/searchmap.php?request=result&sort=rfch&unit=uVm&suppoff=Y&sslimit=N&study_id=318122&opkey=C  It looks like you're clear on 17, 21, and 34.  Maybe also 18 and 36, indoors.

I described the TV channel frequency ranges to be helpful because the page doesn't.  It shows an RF channel number in parenthesis in the left column.

I did originally but must have copied the wrong link as I refreshed it a few times.
