AKG is offering a trade-in program for customers of any brand of wireless system that operates in the range over 698 MHz on the company's WMS 450 system (pictured). This rebate program gives customers a $100 instant rebate when they trade in their “700MHz” wireless system against the purchase of a WMS 450 from a participating contractor or retail dealer. A $100 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.

AKG states that the WMS 450 complies with all FCC regulations. The frequency-agile 450 system is available in three 30MHz wide, FCC regulation-compliant bands in the U.S. that operate in the 500–680MHz 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.

For more information on the AKG wireless rebate and the WMS 450, and to download the PDF mail-in rebate form, visit www.akg.com/us or contact a participating AKG dealer.
