  • The FCC released an Order extending push notification requirements for white space devices and unlicensed wireless microphones operating in TV bands and the 600 MHz band to September 30, 2018. This follows a 2015 Report and Orderwhich, among other things, adopted new and modified rules for fixed and Mode II personal/portable white space devices and databases. Petitions for reconsideration were filed and remain under active consideration due to implementation difficulties of the push notifications. Manufacturers can continue to market and operate approved white space devices and wireless microphones without fear of interference.
