Default How to determine low/high on unmarked reciever?

I have a number of JR recievers that have had the crystals removed. I have radio's on both high and low. How do I determine which reciever is high and which is low? The only info on the reciever is the FCC ID:BRWNER600X

JR does not use high and low band like Futaba does. Put a JR receiver crystal in them and go fly.

Futaba is the only manufacturer that has the hi/lo reciever specification.

Thats because its the only radio with extremelly high standards for signal tuning.

OK guys----Some of you are only half right.....Older JR receivers were marked for high and low band. If all of your receivers are relatively new then they won't be marked (Unless you pulled the stickers off of them!?!?!)

Let me 'splain somethin' to all of you concerning JR receivers......It is NOT due to JR's "superior" receivers being all that great and not having high and low bands....ANY JR receiver that you buy WITHOUT a crystal is CENTER tuned!!! If you send in a receiver for repair or a check-up without the crystal it will come back to you CENTER tuned. JR HIGHLY recommends that you specify a frequency and have the receiver tuned to match that frequency.

I fly nothing but JR and wouldn't have it any other way!!!! Friends don't let friends fly Futaba!!
