Radio Equipment

Any person or organisation wishing to use radio equipment during Addington Cup Week 2017 MUST tick yes below.

Please consider all radio equipment that you may require, such as radio microphones, comm’s, wireless camera links etc. You do not need to declare cell phones and Wi-Fi equipment. If you are unsure whether you require a radio frequency during Addington Cup Week 2017, please tick yes and we will contact you to ascertain your requirements.

If you indicate yes, you will be contacted and asked to provide specific details about the equipment you wish to use on a radio frequencies declaration form. This form needs to be completed, returned and signed off by Sound System Services Ltd before media accreditation will be issued.

Anyone using incorrect frequencies or undeclared equipment during Addington Cup Week 2017 will have their equipment shut down in order to protect other users. This will be strictly enforced.

Further details on radio equipment can be found in the Terms and Conditions below.
