Social Media WireLists51 350pxWireless Designer’s new Zone feature (v2.0.30 for Windows and v2.0.25 for Mac and later versions) allows you to coordinate multiple zones, where some may need to consider intermod interaction and some may not. It is a good way to not only coordinate and monitor a large number of channels in a single facility or studio complex, but also to maximize the number of channels available for use.

You can create zones offline, by doing your band planning prior and loading the project file on the set, or while you are physically on set. Before you begin, it is helpful to know where the clear frequencies are in your area. New Endian’s FreqFinder app or IAS from Professional Wireless Systems can help.
