Radio Equipment

Any person or organisation wishing to use radio equipment during Addington Cup Week 2018 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 2018, 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 and returned to The Soundpeople Ltd before Media Accreditation for Addington Cup Week 2018 will be issued.

Anyone using incorrect frequencies or undeclared equipment during Addington Cup Week 2018 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 of Addington Cup Week 2018 Media Accreditation.

Addington reserves the right to request another photo should the one you submit be deemed to be unacceptable.
