Social Media WireLists47Today's wideband systems can easily overlap each other, which makes frequency band planning a necessity. In the US our wideband units cover 470 to 608 MHz; in Europe that goes up to 614 MHz. When working out of a bag, attention to avoiding frequency overlap between talent receivers and hop or IFB transmitters is doubly crucial, as these units sit in close physical proximity to each other. The goal is to keep different types of RF system spectrums separated from each other so that they don't cause interference and disrupt each other's range and performance. Proper band planning avoids overlap and interference issues.
