Default Radio Frequency

When a radio is on the frequency band of 27mhz how many channels can you use?

is 75mHz better than 27mhz in anyway? (FM radios)

Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue are the 27 freqs. Not much to choose from...

In 75 you get channels 61-90 to choose from.. Now THAT is a list!

As for who makes radios on 27 I *think* the Lynx 3D, M8 and most other radios are availible on 27, but don't quote me on that..

TRF-Powered: Some people say that the 27mhz is better. But I have never had any trouble with 75mhz.

40MHZ is only allowed in Asia. 75mhz is the common frequency almost around the world. The U.S. has 27mhz and 75mhz. and in asia there are 40mhz, and 75mhz.... I don't know abut Europ though...

TRF-Powered - I'm using 27 band right now and it gets frustating waiting for people to put freq. clips back on the board. You'll have a better chance of track time using the 75 band

Well, really anywhere you go 27 band freqs are always off the boards. Only six to choose from. Then again how many freqs can you buy on 75 to make sure you get some run time? Either way it is a hit and miss deal with clips.
Never raced at SoCal, been there a few times to watch.
