Frequency range advice for Germany ?

Recommended Posts

Like to get an Sennheiser EW 100 G4 set (stationary receiver + bodypack transmitter).

Used 2,4 GHz so far.


They offer the following frequency ranges for Germany:

SK 100 G4-A1   470 -  516 MHz
SK 100 G4-A     516 -  558 MHz
SK 100 G4-GB   606 -  648 MHz
SK 100 G4-G     566 -  608 MHz
SK 100 G4-B     626 -  668 MHz
SK 100 G4-C     734 -  776 MHz (not free) expected to be limited by more LTE ranges in the future.
SK 100 G4-E     823 -  865 MHz
SK 100 G4-1G8 1785 - 1800 MHz
SK 100 G4-K+   925 - 937,5 MHz


Since April 2020 all except from G4-C are license free.


Is there a range know to be better than others?

I‘ve used block C for years without any issues. Parts of it have now been reallocated to LTE, but there is also a significant duplex gap, I think from 734 to 753MHz that can be used and is fairly sage from future reallocations. 
Block GB and B have also been working ok for me, but it all depends on where In Germany you are.

Absolutely. I would suggest the lowest band, that's where I find most frequencies in this area.


Btw. there are new rules in GER since april: You don't need a licence any more for your stuff, but you're only permitted to use it when you can declare that you make a living with sound. Non-pros must use other defined bands like 823 MHz, 863 MHz, 1,8 or 2,4 GHz.
