Default WANTED: Kraft Tx RF module(s) 72.160 MHz

I am looking for Kraft TX RF Module(s) on 72.160 MHZ
for late seventy Tx models (original specs, not modified).

I could also use some replacement Kraft servo and
battery cables.

Don't worry to much about it Jeff. Sometimes even the senior members make mistakes.

I'm glad to see you found the Radios, RC equipment For Sale & Wanted forum.

WELCOME to RCU!!!

Unfortunately, if you do find a module on this frequency, it is no longer legal in North America. I don't know about Belgium, but I doubt it's legal there either.

Several years ago (1991?) the frequency spectrum assigned for RC usage was changed to narrower specifications, which also greatly increased the number of channels available to us. 72.160Mhz was a frequency used by the old wideband systems which are now illegal.

Here's a link to the AMA's website listing of the current frequencies being used in North America:

The listed bands for modeling use in Belgium are: 27Mhz, 35Mhz and 40Mhz with 35 being the only one for aircraft only when used within 3Km of a flying site.

You can check at: www.ukrcc.org

This RF module is only to restore a "museum piece".
I use 100 % legal (and state-of-the art) Futaba equipment in
my models.

John's list of allowed frequencies is correct, but the "BIPT"
(Belgian Institute for Post and Telecom, or something like
that) can allow usage of frequencies between 72.00 and 72.500
MHz. Guess you just have to pay for it...

Yes, I suppose that is the way of bureaucracy's all over the world. Its interesting here in the US that when the narrow spacing was applied to 72 and 75 Mhz that the 27Mhz band was left alone and fortunately does not apply there. Even though it is a Ground/ air shared band and only six channels we can still legally operate vintage stuff. I still run some old Tone/escapement equipment in a pair of vintage RC ships for fun and keep a hand in at rudder only flight.

If you would post agine at the vintage forum here at this board I would bet three burned out glow plugs aginst a stale glazed donut that you will find your Kraft module. A lot of that stuff is still floating around.
