hi Guys,

I just brought a car off trademe which has come with 75mhz futaba 2PL radio gear. I ahve been told i cannot use this here in NZ. Is this true ? If so is there any way to convert it to a useable frequency in NZ or am i best just to flick it off ?

Cheers

Shane

Its illegal to use 75Mhz in NZ.
No sense keeping it, sell it on Ebay to someone in the USA

I know this is a bit of an old post to be bringing to the front however I had a question pertaining to this a while back myself. I have a lot of old gear that used 75mHz radios (which seems to be the standard frequency for ground in the US, and me being from there and all) so I called around to a few places and talked with the Radio Spectrum Management of NZ to try to get an answer on it. No one could down right tell me it was illegal to run a 75mHz radio here. I even specifically asked that question of the Radio Spectrum Management group and they couldn't say one way or the other.

What's the real deal with 75mHz in NZ? I heard it was part of the emergency radio band but didn't get any more info.

in a nut shell, some crane and aircraft use 72/75mhz so the last thing you would want is for you to cause a plane crash..

yeah yeah.. i know, it wouldnt happen to modern planes, but this rule has been inplace since, well, as long as i can remember.

Ed, that link only mentions the 72MHz range. Nothing about the 75MHz sets.

My understanding (and reading) is that 75Mhz is used in NZ by Fire / Police as their VHF range
