"Block" refers to the block of frequencies the device can operate in. The frequency spectrum is broken up into "blocks." The blocks available for wireless mic usage varies region by region. For instance, blocks that are open and work well in City A might be restricted in City B. Fortunately, this information is pretty well documented for most major markets so it makes planning and coordinating pretty straight forward.

Something new on the market is called "wideband" wireless, where one device can operate in a significantly larger range of the frequency spectrum. These have been out for a while on lower end gear, but higher end gear is just starting to merge in the wideband space. Wisycom is one brand that just came into North America from Europe. Gotham Sound is their N.A. dealer. Their TX have only been approved by the FCC up to 100 mw, so not quite as much output power as the Lectro SMQV, but they are wideband, which is nice if you are traveling a lot. Give Gotham a call and they will be able to help you with a lot more specifics.
