    The AMS has recently been in consultation with the UKRCC (now looked after by the BMFA) and they confirm that the 458/459 MHz band is legal for R/C using the openLRS software.

    Our opinion was that they seem to be very much "on the ball"!

    They are well aware of the equipment problems with 40Mhz and that 2.4 GHz is of no use to model submariners.

    We have proposed to them (to ease the equipment supply problem) that they consider allowing the sharing of 35Mhz with surface users. (Possibly by allocating certain frequencies within this band.)

    We await results, so in the mean time sub modellers will need to continue using a (diminishing) supply of 27Mhz or 40Mhz equipment or consider moving into the (still fairly experimental ) area of 458/9 Mhz.

    We have just had the official reply from the BFMA about the sharing of 35Mhz for surface use.

    Basically they cannot accept this on safety grounds so that closes that possibility off. We can't see this situation changing.

    So we will have to concentrate on secondhand 27 or 40Mhz equipment or move onto 458/459Mhz openLRS in the UK.
