With the recent introduction of 2.4GHz frequency at 100 mw output suitable for use on radio control model aircraft, it was deemed appropriate to publish the full range of legal frequencies available in the UK (this includes those for non-aircraft models) together with access to Ofcom relevant documents and UKRCC.
The regulatory body that controls these is called Ofcom, there are two relevant documents that provide detailed information.
First is: – RA69 – Radio Controlled Models Information Sheet.
Second is: – OfW 311 Radio Controlled Models.
Other useful information is on the UKRCC site – UK Radio Control Council.
The following table shows the current frequencies that are available for each type of model.
|Frequency (MHz)||Use||Effective Radiated Power (mW)||Number of Channels|
|26.96 to 27.28||General||100||32|
|34.945 to 35.305||Air||100||36|
|40.66 to 41.00||Surface||100||45|
|458.5 to 459.5||General||100||15|
|49.82 to 49.98||General||10||?|
|2.400 to 2.483,55||General||100||80|
