Default JR Receivers on 50MHz

Hey Danny,

What JR receivers are available on 50MHz?

Any chance of getting an R610 on 50MHz?

Also, as a HAM, can I swap the crystal in my TX module? Say from 09 to 08? Shouldn't be a technical problem, is there a legal one?

Thanks in advance,

Mark Napier

Most all Aircraft JR receivers are, with the exception of the 610. An alternative would be to use the R700 instead, it is available on 50 Mhz, and is nearly the same size.

To change the frequency of a transmitter, it must be performed by an authorized service center, per the FCC.

I can buy a 950G-10ch-S-PCM receiver that is 72MHz. Can I just change the crystal to a 50MHz crystal for use with my 10X on 50MHz?

I'm sorry to say that you would not be able to do that. The tuning would be too far off and it would not work. You will need to get a receiver on 50 mhz.

Hi Danny,

Just to clarify, I have a 72 MHz 8103 transmitter - so I can change the frequency "MODULE" to a 50 MHz channel without issue, right?

...then pair it with a new 50 MHz receiver.

Thanks!

Yes, that is correct. Changing the module to 50 Mhz is all you would need to do to change the tx to 50 Mhz.
