LICENSING INFORMATION

Licensing: A ministerial license to operate this equipment may be required in certain areas. Consult your national authority for possible requirements. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Shure Incorporated could void your authority to operate the equipment. Licensing of Shure wireless microphone equipment is the user’s responsibility, and licensability depends on the user’s classification and application, and on the selected frequency. Shure strongly urges the user to contact the appropriate telecommunications authority concerning proper licensing, and before choosing and ordering frequencies.

This device complies with Industry Canada licence-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation of this device is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) l'appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2) l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement.

Federal Communications Commission RF Exposure Notice:

Antennas used for the purpose of radiating signals are limited to a maximum gain of 14 dBi. Each antenna must be positioned to observe minimum separation requirements from all users and bystanders. The following guidelines should be used when considering separation distances.

Antennas must be placed such that, under normal conditions, personnel cannot come within 72 cm (~2.5 ft.) from any antenna. Adhering to this minimum separation will ensure that the employee or bystander cannot exceed RF exposures beyond the maximum permissible limit as defined by 47 CFR 1.1310, i.e., limits for General Population/Uncontrolled Exposure.
