53 Mhz -- Dave Armitage

This has always been a band for model control from way back and it was mentioned in the 1997 project Sabre. (I was also involved with this too) I have taken this up with ICASA and it seems "it was missed out by them" It is available for our use. It is actually part of the ham band, but they have always regarded it as a model control band. I was involved in the negotiations with them to secure the 50 KHz spots a long time ago. In the US of A a ham licence is required but here it is not because of the low power outputs we use, typically 100 milliwatts.

The band starts at 53.300 MHz and goes up to 53.900 in 50 KHz steps

Thank you for your effort in clearing that up for us. I hope that your Telkom ADSL internet line have been installed because this should speedup your e-mail considerably. I also apologize for my impatience.
Best regards
