assuming you possess the required
FCC ham license, you will then be
able to buy the ham module.

it's the receiver that
dictates PCM/FM, not the module.
The transmitter will do either at any
frequency

I fly Futaba 9c but I bet Jr is the same in this respect. I recently changed the opposite from what you want to do. I went from 72 mghz to 50 mghz (ham band) I simply changed out the module and receiver and all was well.
I take it you are buying a used ham band set up. Just make sure you are really getting a good price as it is not exactly cheap to purchase the new module and receiver that you will need.
There is a market for used ham band modules and receivers so a portion of the cost could be recovered.
The transmitter will transmit in fm or pcm. The receiver is either fm or pcm, not both.
You must have a ham radio license to legally operate a ham band rc tranmitter. Ron KG6CNM

NO... You will need a new module AND a new receiver. A crystal change alone will not do it.
or what is the deal with ham band is pcm or fm or what
Generally Ham Band equipment can be bought in both FM or PCM formats. However, as others have explained, most of todays radios that will allow module changes, it is the receiver that will dictate what encoding sceme you will use.

If you buy a new module and an FM receiver, you will have an FM ham band set-up.

If you buy a new module and a PCM receiver, you will have a PCM ham band set-up.

Hope this clears things up.
