I've been out of the rc scene for 4 years, I see there is a 50 mhz radio, is it better or the same with less people on it since its fairly new?

50 mhz frequencies are NOT new. Those are Amateur Radio frequencies and you MUST have a valid Ham Radio license in order to use them.

James . . . please tell me your kidding . . . or that you are a Ham, at least!!


I recommend the Futaba 9C on 50 MHz. I only had one confliction once (at a fun fly). There are less people but less channels too so if you do run into a large contingent of R/C Hams, there is a higher likelyhood of a channel confliction.

JR and I believe one other mfg make 50 MHz radios. FMA and Berg make receivers (and of course JR and Futaba). There are less choices in receivers too. Avoid 53 Mhz. That band is about dead. Too many 6 meter repeater input problems. I don't know of anyone using 53 Mhz.



Glenn.

I'm not really an R/C pilot, I stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last n

There are a handful of guys at my local field using 53mhz. Never known them to have any problems.



I was going to take up Origami, but someone said the local club folded.

He said he was a ham. It's those funny letters under his name.

If I find someone using 50 with no license, it's a call to the FCC enforcement team I've worked with in the past.

I have not had 50mhz radio cause I am not one that likes to wait on orders to come in, but I to will raise a stink if I catch someone using a ham band radio without a license. The no-code tech license is not that hard to get but if you want the privlegde of using it you need to step up, study and take the test.

Started as Novice in 1975. Upgraded to advanced in 1977.

Extra class in 1982. Taken at the FCC field office in Chicago Code test using headsets at least 50 years old and they sounded like it.

Operated almost every mode and every band
below 1 GHZ at one time or another. Some stuff above 1 GHZ.

Anybody want a sked on 20/40 CW or PSK31?
Thats about all I operate any more.
