Here’s an explanation of the two frequencies now available for radio mic and accessories in the UK.
Channel 70 is currently free. However its generally recommended that you have maximum of four transmitters ei 2x handhelds, 2x beltpacks. Its also recommended that you don’t use wireless IEMs (in ear monitors) on channel 70 because of interference.
Channel 38 is licensed via Ofcom however depending on the equipment you can run up to 32 channels. Also there is far less risk of interference from IEMs.
