read an interesting article and decided to join. i purchased and installed a rugged 60 watt radio for my offroad sand rail and had no idea that some of the channels could cost me a fine. not a ham radio operator nor do i know anything about those rules or laws. i just assumed as most all do when purchasing such things that come pre programmed that they are all on the up and up. so i will be looking through this forum for a list of channes that are safe to use with no fines attached! i and a few others have had issues with there antenna’s so i’ll have to seach to see if there are better suited antenna’s for our use. there antenna’s work for a while but then they start interferring with ignition systems after a while. i have found that if one wraps a piece of tinfoil around the base ( just one layer thick) that this stops the issue. the tech’s at rugged said the small wire on the spring loaded base must be breaking off and touching the side. that was there answer after told me that can’t happen lol once i assured him it was indeed happening on more than one they came up with the other reason.

Hey hey! We have file uploads turned off on the forum here.

 

Shoot me an email at tyler@myoffroadradio.com and I will get you a csv file with the list of frequencies. Or you can just copy/paste them below 🙂

 

P.S. these are the frequencies for the United States open use VHF and UHF frequencies. These will most likely not be the same in other parts of the world.

 

MURS 1 151.82
MURS 2 151.88
MURS 3 151.94
MURS 4 154.57
MURS 5 154.6
   
FRS 1 462.5625
FRS 2 462.5875
FRS 3 462.6125
FRS 4 462.6375
FRS 5 462.6625
FRS 6  462.6875
FRS 7 462.7125
FRS 8 467.5625

Ya, unfortunately, a lot of people don’t sadly. And, it doesn’t seem like Rugged really cares. I have talked with them personally about it, and they continue to take the stance of “its not our problem. It is the end user’s responsibility to operate legally”

Glad we could help! Be safe out there and have fun!
