Sorry to inform you but 40mhz is illegal here in the states. That frequency band is reserved for the Department of Defense. If the Fcc catches you on it they will confiscate any and all radio gear that you have with you. Please dont try to use 40 band its just not worth the risk.

You can get the stuff on eBay and from HK stores.

Yes it's illegal, but that's the answer to your question.

If you have a amature radio license you should be able to use the freq. I have a few guys I race with that use it and they bought them used from other people (they have there license)

40Mhz is not part of the HAM band that is used for RC.

Do a search on the FCC site or Bearcat Betty.
Low 40Mhz freq are used by lots of Police/EMT/Fire and other goverment agencies for VHF low band.

50 MHz band (Aircraft/Car/Boat) FCC Amateur
license required.
