Any idea if this transmitter is AM or the older FM wideband? I believe Ace Hobby here in the U.S. still shows availability on several models of AM receivers.

Be aware, 72.080 is one of the "OLD" rc channels, and I doubt if you'll find a current receiver on that frequency. Those channels are no longer available for use by radio control equipment.

You could probably send the radio to radio south or someone other service facility, get the transmitter changed to a current available channel, and then get a matching receiver.

That might be true in Kansas or Nebraska, fizzwater2, but I honestly couldn't tell you what the radio regulations for New Zealand are like. 72Mhz AM or FM wideband equipment may be popular there.

Crud - I didn't see that part. There are probably parts of KS and Nebrasaka where it's being used, too... Not that it's supposed to, but it wouldn't surprise me.

The last radio I had on those old frequencies was an MRC 765 from 1976. That's been a while back.
