Short-term frequency assignment
Every frequency used in Germany needs a frequency assignment pursuant to the German Telecommunications Act (Telekommunikationsgesetz - TKG). Where no general frequency assignment has been issued, the Bundesnetzagentur will make individual assignments. If frequencies are to be used for a short term only, eg for motor races, sports events, concerts and trade fairs, assignments are issued in a simplified procedure as short-term frequency assignments. These are issued for a maximum period of 30 days.
Frequency assignment for short-term use is generally tied to a specific event and location. More details can be found in the Administrative Rules on Frequency Assignments for Short-term Use (Verwaltungsvorschrift Kurtzeitnutzung - VVKuNz).
General assignment of frequencies for wireless microphones and in-ear monitoring systems in the frequency bands 470-608 MHz and 614-694 MHz
Microphones and in-ear monitoring systems with a maximum radiated power of 50mW may be operated in the above-mentioned frequency bands with no special frequency assignment. You can find the corresponding general frequency assignment here: General frequency assignments of the Bundesnetzagentur.
All users of microphones and in-ear systems in the above-mentioned frequency bands must ensure on site that their usage does not cause interference for other users. Therefore users should come to an agreement on site about which frequencies they are using.
