Here’s the key provision from the FCC website:

“During the transition period, these operators may continue to access the 600 MHz Band spectrum, but will operate on a secondary basis to the new 600 MHz licensees and must not cause interference to and must accept harmful interference from those licensees. The transition period will end 39 months after the issuance of the channel reassignment Public Notice, at which time all wireless microphone and other LPAS users must cease operations on the repurposed 600 MHz Band frequencies.”

So, we’re all “secondary” to the new licensees (such as T-Mobile) and depending on where the churches are located, they’ll start having problems with their wireless systems much sooner than expected. Here’s one of a number of articles by some broadcasting professionals (it’s giving public TV stations nightmares due to their “translators”):
