Band C is OK in the UK - but licensed to a fixed site only.

IE: no good for location filming as you would have to buy a separate licence for every location which would soon cost more than the radiomics.

Sennheiser UK can change a Band C set to any of the other bands for a little over £200 per system, if required.

Thanks. I might keep them then. I will be in London next month for a week. I'll do some web research. Maybe I can drop them off.

In London you can only use C frequencies on a special licence for the site you are at.
