Wireless frequencies in Phoenix

My apologies if this belongs in the travel section. I have to shoot in Phoenix in a few weeks. I'm concerned about my Lectrosonics wireless mics working there. They are older, fixed frequency mics, 544.500 and 497.200. Is there a way to check if there will be a problem using them in Phoenix? Thanks.

Hello Michael:

You can try the Sennheiser Frequency Finder (Sennheiser USA - Headphones and Headsets - Microphones) or try contacting Lectrosonics directly (contact-us | Contact Us), especially if you know the specific zip code or area you'll be working in. Great folks over at Lectro!

Re: Wireless frequencies in Phoenix

Lectro has or had a freq chart on their website which lists all the major users of their equipment (namely TV stations). I think a little time there might get you pointed in the right direction.

Hi Michael,

I checked those frequencies using the IAS software package, choosing zip code 85018 as a central location within the Phoenix metro area. Here's what I found:

544.500 falls within DTV 26 so you may have trouble with that one if you need more than say 30 ft. of range.

497.200 appears to be fine.

If you can rent something, Lectrosonics blocks 21, 24, 25 or 26 all appear to provide many usable frequency choices (more than a dozen in each block).
