Responsible Entity Starkey Laboratories Australia Pty Ltd
Reason/Issue It has recently come to Starkey Laboratories' attention that specific Surflink Media and Surflink Media 2 accessories may be operating outside their permissible frequency band (915-928 MHz), and may cause interference with mobile towers (operating in the frequency band 902-915 MHz).
Any potential interference to mobile towers does not cause any interference or disruption to the accessories themselves. That is, the accessories continue to fully function/operate even though they may operate outside the frequency band 915-928 MHz.
