I hope this got your attention! YES it is!! In fact a very large portion of AMA members still fly on 72Mhz. Why? because good, used equipment is readily available at swap meets and on-line auction sites. Many of these radios are full-featured sets with lots of programming and model capability. Sure, you have to use a frequency pin at the flying site, but the fact is that many times, you may be the only one on your frequency or maybe even the only one at the flying site on 72MHz! So, it is just like having your own private frequency. Look for a full article in the September issue of Model Aviation Magazine or the Digital version of MA!
