By now you should have heard about the 600 MHz frequency spectrum changeover taking place soon. This may mean that some churches will no longer be able to use their current sound equipment. Please take a moment to watch this video from Sennheiser, an Alliance Purchasing Program audio equipment partner. It explains how to check your church’s cur-rent equipment to see if it falls within the range that will change, as well as a rebate program running through March 31, 2019, but has now been extended to July 13, 2020. As of that date, it will be illegal to use sound equipment in the 600mHz range.
Erik Hansen, pastor of Technical Arts at Grace Church in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, shares his experience with the Sennheiser rebate program:
Grace Church purchased six channels of wireless equipment this spring to replace our main wireless mics in our auditorium, which were in the 600MHz range and due to be phased out within the next year due to the new FCC regulations. Sennheiser made the process extremely easy—and the rebate, special pricing, and 5 percent donation to the GCF were icing on the cake. The deal through the Alliance Purchasing Program turned an upgrade that would have been a major headache and a significant cost into a great experience and a much better price than expected. This purchasing deal is a great opportunity for churches to get excellent-quality equipment at a lower price point in order to steward resources well!
To order your replacement wireless systems, please contact Brian Gowing, Audio/Video/Lighting Project coordinator for the Alliance Purchasing Program, at (734) 677-8555 or email@example.com. Brian can help with evaluating your system needs and walk you through the ordering process. Please remember that through the Alliance Purchasing Pro-gram you get special pricing from Sennheiser, which also contributes 5 percent of each sale to the Great Commission Fund.
