On 01 May 2015, the RSM updated the Digital Television (DTT) Usage Table. It can be downloaded from here.

If you're concerned about whether your radio microphones need to be upgraded by March 11th 2015 after watching Fair Go 4/3/15 here's some help.

Check the frequencies they operate on. If above 698 MHz then you are affected.

Contact your supplier. Most of the major bands are represented here and have upgrade/trade-in or reblocking programmes in place.

Even if your radio microphones are compliant you may find that local Digital Television Transmission (DTT or Freeview) is causing interference.

Seems the link to the Google Earth view of DTT transmitter sites isn't working as intended so watch this space for a new version when its been debugged.
