Radio Frequencies & Use in the UK

  • 26.96 to 27.28MHz General use - maximum effective radiated power 100 mW.
  • 34.995 to 35.255MHz Aircraft use only - maximum effective radiated power 100 mW.
  • 40.66 to 41.00MHz Surface vehicle use only - maximum effective radiated power 100 mW.
  • 458.5 to 459.5MHz General use - maximum effective radiated power 100 mW.
  • IMPORTANT: You should check that the Radio Control system you are using is approved for use by the control you are in. This may change from time to time.

26.96 to 27.28MHz

Identification is by coloured pennant.

26.975 - Black
27.145 - Yellow
26.995 - Brown
27.170 - Yellow/Green
27.020 - Brown/Red
27.195 - Green
27.045 - Red
27.220 - Green/Blue
27.070 - Red/Orange
27.245 - Blue
27.095 - Orange
27.270 - Blue/Grey
27.120 - Orange/Yellow

Although the official channel spacing on this band is 25 kHz, virtually all crystals available have a 20 kHz/30 kHz split instead of 25 kHz/25 kHz. This should not cause problems as almost all sets still in use are capable of operating at 20 kHz spacing. There is also some confusion on the frequency above 27.245 MHz (Blue). The official Blue/Grey frequency is sometimes issued as "White" and on a frequency only approximating 27.270 MHz. Once again, this should cause no problems as long as it is above 27.265 and below 27.280 MHz.




34.995 to 35.255MHz

Identification is by orange flag with white channel numeral.

To identify the channel number of an untagged crystal, simply add 60 to the first two numbers after the decimal point of the frequency marking.
