AKG Announces 700-MHz Wireless Rebate Program

  • NORTHRIDGE, CA--AKG announced a trade-in program for customers of any brand of wireless system that operates in the over-698 MHz range on its popular WMS 450 system. This rebate program gives customers a $100.00 instant rebate when they trade-in their “700-MHz” wireless system against the purchase of a WMS 450 from a participating contractor or retail dealer. A $100.00 mail-in rebate is available via a downloadable PDF form for new customers when purchasing the system from a participating online or catalog retailer.
  • Many wireless users that have systems operating in the 698 - 806 MHz range are worried that their systems will become unreliable or unusable after the transition to DTV broadcasting occurs on February 18, 2009. That frequency band was auctioned off by the FCC earlier this year and will be implemented by its new owners for public safety, voice and data communications.
  • The AKG WMS 450 complies with all FCC regulations and is a perfect step-up wireless system. The frequency-agile 450 system is available in three 30-MHz wide, FCC regulation-compliant bands in the United States that operates in the 500 – 680 MHz range. In each band, up to 12 systems can be operated simultaneously and up to 36 systems can be used when multiple bands are combined. Wireless users can buy a WMS 450 system with confidence knowing that it will be usable for years into the future.
  • Joe Wagoner, product manager for wireless products at AKG stated, “The WMS 450 is the logical next step in wireless systems and is equipped with incredible frequency-agility, comprehensive frequency-management software and powerful 50-milliwatt transmitters. The user-friendly interface and the versatility allow operators to quickly and easily expand the system into a multi-user wireless system with the incredible array of accessories offered by AKG. The WMS 450 is one of the finest values in the market today and this generous offer makes stepping up to its high performance and flexibility even easier for wireless users.”
