...OK we all know that PCM is better.

I have an 8U which can be a PCM radio. But I have an FM rx. So am I understanding it correctly that all I have to do to use my 8U in PCM mode is to buy a PCM rx and then change the little computer thing to read PCM???

OR do I also have to buy some kind of thingy for the back of the TX???

irq, ever-able to tell the difference between a "choice 1 or choice 2" or simple boolean question, will provide you with a clear answer!

All you have to do is replace the receiver and change the setting in your transmitter.

One more question.....The crystal....
...I'm again assuming that the crystal that fits my FM rx will fit a PCM rx as long as I buy upper or lower band based upon the crystal number????

Yours,

Yes, assuming they are the same brand receivers as well. Be sure to wrap some tape around it too!

Well, its only something someone else taught me I've seen a few crashes because of the crystal falling out, so I make sure there's always some tape holding mine in, in addition to the little plastic clip.
