New ? You probably have the only one. Futaba and JR receivers are usually sufficiently broad band to allow them to be retuned to 53. The service centers won't do it for you so you are on your own. Don't try to use one without retuning

Older radios include Kraft ,Proline, Futaba ,JR etc.
Not too likely for them to turn up when you are looking but they do surface now and then.
Also the narrow band restrictions do not apply to the 6 Meter Ham Band so yes ,you may use older receivers here .

Be VERY careful as the new band plan leaves this part of the band without a "gentleman's agreement" regarding RC exclusive use.

I would highily suggest not using 53MHz there's a very good chance of getting shot down by repeater traffic (There are some POWERFULL transmitters on those frequencies) Try using 50MHz instead

Default Thanks fer the Input!!

Thank you Ladyflyer and Lynx for your input. Yes I do know that there is no solid agreement on the RC 6 meter band. This is a old xmtr, But it still works perfectly. At my present location I have difficulty trying to get on 440-2m and let alone 220, however no problems on the low bands. I have been on 53 Mhz as a test and have not seen any signal yet. I did buy the 9CAP on 50 Mhz, But I
wanted to play around on 53 Mhz with a glider. So thanks again to both of you.
