Default Crystals in Tx

Alright here we go. I know there is a long 4 page forum in the AMA section but I need some good intel on this stuff. Since I am in one of those countries that switching crystals is "legal" can I put a 35 mhz crystal in my 72 mhz Tx and vice versa?? Are there any conflict problems doing this and can you get them retuned to work?? Any info will help.

Simply put, NO!

Now having said that, if your transmitter uses a plug-in frequency module, then you probably can because the rf section is in the module, not in the transmitter.

Example, I regularly change my JR modules between 50 mhz and 72 mhz in my 388, 8103 and 10x.

I didn't think so, but I am not an expert on these things that is why I asked. That is the first question I get from new flyers to my area. Thanks for the help.

You need to change more than just the crystal to change bands. If you can't do it by changing the RF module it probably will be cheaper to just buy another transmitter.
