The letter shown below is a formal request from the AMS which I hope is self explanatory.
There is a chance of success and I will keep you posted.

Re: Allowing the sharing of 35MHz with model submarines?
I wrote to Fred Body (then on the BFMA Committee) about this 8 years ago. The position was then that the BMFA could not allow other users on 35MHz.
I emailed Fred again in April this year and he suggested that I contact the BMFA again to see if the position had changed in any way. Hence this letter.
By way of an update and an introduction, I am the Treasurer of the Association of Model Submariners and we represent about 100 model submariners in the UK. (That is about the total number.) The situation regarding supply of commercial r/c equipment has not improved. 40 MHz gear has long ceased to be available. 2.4GHz does not penetrate water and so is not much use to us. This means that newcomers to our hobby are particularly disadvantaged by having to buy, increasingly rare, second hand gear.
However I do notice from conversations with model flying friends that 35MHz is almost unused now and I see considerable quantities of good quality second hand equipment on eBay (and presumably in model flyers garages!)
So I am asking as a representative of a small but threatened hobby, would you be prepared to allow model submariners to share 35MHz (for model submarine use only.)
