Default "OLD" Radios

My first post on this site, so if it doesn't look quite right, please be patient.

Your question is much too broad to be answered easily. It depends on the manufacturer of the radio, and the complexity of the radio. Simple 4 channel radios are so inexpensive, that it is rather pointless to convert.

AMA requires dual conversion receivers, these days. Are any of yours dual conversion?.

The servo's should be useable, if you have the right connectors, but otherwise, if you have to buy all of the peripherals (sp), you will spend the price of a new radio.

Doug.

I know that the FCC does not specify, but I thought that the AMA had.

I stand corrected.

It turns out that the specification on Image Rejection has become such that 90% of the single conversion receivers could not pass, and the RCMA has taken the approach that double conversion was the least painfull approach to take.

In these days when FCC has interspersed other services between our RC channels, we really need all the protection we can get.
