Sure you don't have a single conversion crystal in a dual conv. rcvr, or vice versa ?

Also note:
Futaba does not recomend changing crystals from the high band to the low band without sending it back to them for re-tuning.

High Band = Freq 30 to 60

Low Band = Freq 30 and below.

Check that out as well.

Close, but no cigar. The dividing line is channel 35. 35 to 60 is high band, 10 to 34 is low. If there were channels all the way down to 1, then 30 would be the middle, but there's no channels below channel 10.

Jim:

FYI. There are channels below 10, but they are on 50 mHz, and you must have a ham license to operate there.
