It is important to note that the FCC regulations often use the term telecommand to refer to what most people would call "remote control", "wireless control", "RC" "radio control" "R/C", etc.

RC Transmitter Regulations - Part 15, Part 95 and Part 97

26 MHz/27 MHz (26-28 MHz) 72 MHz and 75 MHz RC frequencies fall under Part 95 of the FCC rules, Part 95 Subpart C: Radio Control Radio Service (RCRS)

The majority of lower-cost children's grade RC toys actually fall under Part 15 operation within the 26.98 MHz to 27.28 MHz band (not to be confused with the 26.957 MHz to 27.283 MHz ISM band), but still use the same 27 MHz RC channel plan. 26.98 MHz-27.28 MHz, 26.96 MHz-27.28 MHz, operation within the band 26.98 MHz - 27.28 MHz, etc. etc. While many of these Part 15 devices use the standard 27 MHz RC frequencies, numerous 27 MHz RC devices do not. FCC approval documentation for RC devices operating under 15C show use of offset frequencies including 27.12 MHz, 27.125 MHz, 27.140 MHz, 27.141 MHz, 27.1447 MHz, 27.15 MHz, etc. Toy grade devices tend to use 27.145 MHz -/+ 5 kHz or so. Higher quality devices allow the user to select the channel / frequency used, often by swapping crystals.

§ 95.731 Permissible Radio Control Radio Service (RCRS) use. RCRS transmitters may only be used to transmit one-way communications and only for the purposes set forth in this section. (One-way communications are transmissions which are not intended to establish communications with another station.)

(a) Control of model crafts and devices. When an RCRS transmitter is used to control a model craft or device, the RCRS channels in specific frequency bands must be used, based on the type of model craft or device being controlled, as follows:

(1) RCRS channels in the 72 MHz frequency band may be used only to control and operate model aircraft.

(2) RCRS channels in the 75 MHz frequency band may be used only to control and operate model surface craft.

(3) RCRS channels in the 26-28 MHz frequency band may be used to control or operate any kind of device.

(b) Telecommand. Any RCRS channel may be used by the operator to turn on and/or off a device at a remote location.

(c) Telemetry. Any RCRS channel in the 26-28 MHz frequency band may be used to transmit a signal from a sensor at a remote location that turns on and/or off an indicating device for the operator.

§ 95.767 RCRS transmitter power. Each RCRS transmitter type must be designed such that the transmitter power does not exceed the limits in this section.

(a) 72 and 75 MHz frequency bands. For an RCRS transmitter operating in the 72 and/or 75 MHz frequency bands, the mean transmitter output power must not exceed 0.75 Watts.

(b) 26-28 MHz frequency band. For an RCRS transmitter operating on 27.255 MHz, the mean transmitter output power must not exceed 25 Watts. For an RCRS transmitter operating on 26.995, 27.045, 27.095, 27.145, or 27.195 MHz, the mean transmitter output power must not exceed 4 Watts.

§ 95.771 RCRS emission types. Each RCRS transmitter type must be designed to satisfy the emission limitations in this section.

(a) Permitted emission types. RCRS transmitter types may transmit any type of non-voice emission that is technically appropriate for radio control use.

(b) Voice emissions prohibited. RCRS transmitter types must be incapable of transmitting telephony (voice communications).

§ 95.773 RCRS authorized bandwidth. Each RCRS transmitter type must be designed such that the occupied bandwidth does not exceed 8 kHz for any emission type.

§ 95.733 Prohibited RCRS use. The rules in this section restrict certain uses of RCRS transmitters.

(a) Simultaneous use of multiple channels. An RCRS station must not transmit simultaneously on more than one RCRS channel in the 72-76 MHz band when such operation would cause harmful interference to other RCRS operations.

(b) Data transmission. No person shall use a RCRS transmitter to transmit data. Tones or other types of signal encoding are not considered to be data for the purposes of this paragraph, when used only for the purpose of identifying the specific device among multiple devices that the operator intends to turn on/off or the specific sensor among multiple sensors intended to turn on/off an indicating device for the operator.

(c) Pay for operation prohibited. RCRS stations must not be used for commercial purposes. An RCRS operator must not accept direct or indirect payment for operating an RCRS transmitter. An RCRS operator may use an RCRS transmitter to help him or her provide a service and be paid for rendering that service, provided that the payment is only for the service and not for operation of the RCRS transmitter.

(d) Limited transmission. No person shall use an RCRS station to transmit any message other than for the operation of devices at remote locations. Accordingly, the transmission of other messages by an RCRS operator, such as voice, telegraphy, etc. is prohibited.

26/27 MHz 27MHz 26-28 MHz RC Frequencies

These devices, especially those on 27.255 MHz, operate as de facto legal 11 meter beacons.

Class C (FCC Rules Part 95 Subpart C - updated Part 95 rules sections: 47 CFR 95 Subpart C, 95.701 - 95.899 Radio Control Radio Service RCRS) CB Radio have six channels allocated to general remote control.

§ 95.735 RCRS equipment certification exception.

Notwithstanding the general requirement of § 95.335, a non-certified RCRS transmitter that transmits only in the 26-28 MHz band and complies with the applicable technical requirements in this subpart may be operated in the RCRS for the purpose of controlling a remote device.

In other words, it is legal to operate a RCRS device on the 26.995 MHz, 27.045 MHz, 27.095 MHz, 27.145 MHz, 27.195 MHz or 27.255 MHz frequencies without FCC certification, provided the device complies with the applicable technical requirements as outlined in 47 C.F.R. 95 Subpart C Radio Control Radio Service RCRS for devices operating in the 26-28 MHz band 26/27 MHz devices.

§ 95.731 Permissible RCRS use. (specifically related to 26-28 MHz band)


RCRS transmitters may only be used to transmit one-way communications and only for the purposes set forth in this section. (One-way communications are transmissions which are not intended to establish communications with another station.)


(a) (3) RCRS channels in the 26-28 MHz frequency band may be used to control or operate any kind of device.

(c) Telemetry. Any RCRS channel in the 26-28 MHz frequency band may be used to transmit a signal from a sensor at a remote location that turns on and/or off an indicating device for the operator.

The 8 kHz bandwidth limit (95.773) and emission types regulations (95.771) apply. (a) Permitted emission types. RCRS transmitter types may transmit any type of non-voice emission that is technically appropriate for radio control use. (b) Voice emissions prohibited. RCRS transmitter types must be incapable of transmitting telephony (voice communications).

This means that any modulation type (emission) may be transmitted as long as its not voice and meets the 8 kHz bandwidth requirement.

§ 95.765 RCRS frequency accuracy.

(b) Except as allowed under paragraph (c) of this section, each RCRS transmitter type capable of transmitting in the 26-28 MHz frequency band must be designed such that the carrier frequencies remain within ±50 ppm of the channel center frequencies listed in § 95.763(a) during normal operating conditions.

(c) Each RCRS transmitter type that transmits in the 26-28 MHz frequency band with a mean (average) transmitter power of 2.5 W or less and is used solely by the operator to turn on and/or off a device at a remote location, other than a device used solely to attract attention, must be designed such that the carrier frequencies remain within ±100 ppm of the channel center frequencies listed in § 95.763(a) during normal operating conditions. RCRS transmitters transmitting a mean transmitter power of greater than 2.5 watts must follow the ±50 ppm frequency accuracy requirement as defined in 47 C.F.R. 95.765.

This means that if the transmitter power is less than 2.5 watts, the frequency stability for carrier frequency may be +/- 2.7 kHz, meaning

26992.3 kHz to 26997.7 kHz for 26995 kHz (26.995 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27042.3 kHz to 27047.7 kHz for 27045 kHz (27.045 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27092.3 kHz to 27097.7 kHz for 27095 kHz (27.095 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27142.3 kHz to 27147.7 kHz for 27145 kHz (27.145 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27192.3 kHz to 27197.7 kHz for 27195 kHz (27.195 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27252.3 kHz to 27257.7 kHz for 27255 kHz (27.255 MHz) nominal channel frequency

If the transmitter power is above 2.5 watt, the frequency stability is +/- 1.3 kHz, meaning the center frequency must be between

26993.7 kHz and 26996.3 kHz for 26995 kHz (26.995 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27043.7 kHz and 27046.3 kHz for 27045 kHz (27.045 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27093.7 kHz and 27096.3 kHz for 27095 kHz (27.095 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27143.7 kHz and 27146.3 kHz for 27145 kHz (27.145 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27193.7 kHz and 27196.3 kHz for 27195 kHz (27.195 MHz) nominal channel frequency 27253.7 kHz and 27256.7 kHz for 27255 kHz (27.255 MHz) nominal channel frequency

47 CFR § 95.741 - RCRS antenna height limit.

If the antenna of a RCRS station operating on a channel in the 26-28 MHz frequency band (whether receiving, transmitting) is installed at a fixed location, the highest point of the antenna must not be more than 6.10 meters (20 feet) higher than the highest point of the building or tree on which it is mounted; or 18.3 meters (60 feet) above the ground.

Antenna height restrictions only apply for transmitters and receivers installed at fixed locations.

When the CB radio band was first allocated as the Class D CB service, the 26-28 MHz RC frequencies were "overlaid" on the 26.96 MHz to 27.23 MHz 11 meter band. The original five channels were set to be 35 kHz from the band edges and 50 kHz apart from each other. 27.255 MHz has always been a special case, as it was allocated as the CB channel 23 and assigned as a RC channel for higher power purposes from the inception of the service. The CB channels were allocated starting with channel 1 being 5 kHz away from the band edge with 10 kHz channel steps, skipping the five R/C channels. Hence the "A channels" or "hidden channels" naming convention. It is because of this that export radios have the +10 kHz switch, turning the 40 channel band into a 45 channel band. While it is illegal to transmit voice on the RC frequencies, many CB and 11 meter operators do so. Using AM or FM voice on the A channels - alpha channels, hidden channels, etc. is quite common, especially with certain CB users and freebanders. In the United States, AM by far the most common voice mode, but FM has been noted in rare instances. Most export radios capable of transmitting on the A channels by use of the +10 kHz +10kc switch also have FM capability in addition to AM.

49 MHz RC Frequencies

What does 49 MHz mean on a RC car? 49 MHz refers to the radio frequency band that the radio control (remote control, R/C, RC, or as the FCC calls it - telecommand) link from the remote controller (RC transmitter) to the car (RC receiver) is operating on. Even though it says “49 MHz” these systems are not on 49.000 MHz. They use frequencies between 49.82 MHz and 49.9 MHz. Usually 49.83 MHz and 49.86 MHz are the most common.

Identical models of RC toys are often sold with a 27MHz version and 49MHz version. The 27MHz RC link operates in the 26-28 MHz band (usually 26.995 MHz - 27.255 MHz). This allows two RC transmitters to operate in very close proximity without interfering with one another, even with extremely simple (and inexpensive) transmitters and receivers. Professional quality RC systems may also operate on the 27MHz band, but the majority have moved to the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands. 2.4 GHz often has just as much interference as 27MHz.

RC transmitters generally use generally use 49.830 MHz or 49.860 MHz. Both 49.86 MHz and 49.83 MHz are referred to as as 49 MHz "RC channel 1". Children's RC toys are often offered in two versions, a "49 MHz" version and a "27 MHz" version, without any channel numbers indicated. The 27 MHz version generally will operate on 27.145 MHz. These devices are usually operating under Part 15, not Part 95 (with some rare exceptions for the 26 / 27 MHz gear. Part 15 power limit is 10,000 microvolts per meter at 3 meters (10,000 microvolts/meter at 3m).

Other sources, including R/C RC model hobbyist resources, indicate a maximum power output of 100mw or 0.1 watt on the 49 MHz RC frequencies. The same 5 standard channels listed below are provided as the available 49 MHz R/C channels. Most consumer-grade devices on the 27 MHz, 35 MHz, 40 MHz and 49 MHz frequencies use pulse-width modulation or PWM. Other, simpilier systems use On-Off Keying, simple AFSK, FSK, or ASK (amplitude shift keying).

49.6 MHz - 50 MHz (49.600 MHz - 49.975 MHz, 49.995 MHz) band (47 CFR 15.235 subband 49.820 MHz - 49.900 MHz) shared with military users and other Part 15 devices, including baby monitors, wireless microphones, 49 MHz walkie-talkies (such as the RadioShack TRC-503, TRC-512, Maxon PC-50 and numerous childrens-grade single-channel walkie talkies), intercom systems and first-generation cordless phones.

For a more in-depth discussion of other 49 MHz band devices, including 49 MHz RC channel lists and other 49MHz channels, see the 49 MHz Part 15 page - Operation within the band 49.82 MHz - 49.90 MHz.

  • 49.830 MHz - Channel 1/Channel A
  • 49.845 MHz - Channel 2/Channel B
  • 49.860 MHz - Channel 3/Channel C
  • 49.875 MHz - Channel 4/Channel D
  • 49.890 MHz - Channel 5/Channel E

Many devices using the 49 MHz band use non-standard frequencies or channels (for various reasons). There is no official channel plan for this band. See the Part 15 link above for more information. The 49.6 MHz to 50 MHz band is allocated to military users on a primary basis.

50 MHz / 53 MHz 6 Meter Band RC Frequencies

These frequencies may only be used by licensed amateur radio operators under Part 97 of the FCC rules. A valid ham radio license is required to use the 50/53 MHz RC frequencies. 50 MHz RC 50.80 MHz - 50.98 MHz 53 MHz RC 53.10 MHz - 53.80 MHz.

72 MHz RC Frequencies

The following channels are allocated to remote controlled aircraft, including drones, UAV systems, UAS systems, but only as the ground to air control station command and control data link.

750 mW 0.75 watt max transmitter power. 50 available channels spaced 20 kHz apart. From 72.4 MHz to 72.6 MHz, band is shared with operational fixed, business data link, telemetry, paging and point-to-point links within the Business Radio Service and Public Safety Radio Pool (Part 90). This spectrum is also shared with militarycombat net radio FM tactical radio systems operating both in fixed frequency single channel (SC) mode and frequency hopping (FH) mode. This includes older generation 30-76 MHz systems and newer 30-88 MHz systems.

8 kHz maximum bandwidth, PWM, PCM, FSK (advertised as "FM"), various data modes. Any mode is technically permitted, as long as it is not voice (telephony) does not exceed the 8 kHz emission bandwidth requirement.

Both the 72 MHz and 75 MHz high-end RC systems are slowly being replaced by 2.4 GHz band systems. 72/75 MHz systems are still being manufactured and used, mainly due to the higher transmitter power and superior range offered by the VHF RC systems. High power 26-28 MHz and 72 MHz/75 MHz RC systems offer the best range with the highest transmit power available. 72 MHz and 75 MHz offer much better protection from interference and significantly more channel options compared to 26/27 MHz.

72 MHz RC transmitter antennas must be an integral part of the transmitter, antenna gain must not exceed that of a half-wave dipole and the antenna must be vertically polarized under normal operation. 72 MHz RC transmitters must maintain frequency accuracy with 20ppm of the center frequencies, frequency stability of within ±20 parts-per-million (ppm).

Just like with the 26-28 MHz RCRS frequencies. The 72 MHz and 75 MHz RC frequencies share frequencies and are adjacent to frequencies used by other services. The Part 90 land mobile service uses frequencies in the 72-76 MHz band, the aeronautical fixed service uses 75.0 MHz for marker beacons (aircraft navigation, guard band 74.80 MHz to 75.20 MHz) and there is a Part 15 section permitting operation between 72.0 MHz - 73.0 MHz, 74.6 MHz - 74.8 MHz and 75.2 MHz - 76.0 MHz.

VHF MURS 151/154 MHz RC Frequencies

The Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS) VHF allocation may be used for data transmission, telecommand, paging and other purposes in addition to two-way voice. Data transmissions may use A1D, A2B, A2D, F2B, F1D, or F2D emission methods. Voice transmissions on the MURS frequencies may use A3E emission (double side band AM voice), F3E or G3E (FM voice and PM or phase modulation voice - FM and PM are effectively the same modulation type). For A3E emission (AM mode) the bandwidth limit on all five channels is 8 kHz (meaning 8K00A3E emission). Data emissions are limited to 11K2A2B, 11K2A2D, 11K2F2B, 11K2F1D and 11K2F2D on 151.82 MHz, 151.88 MHz and 151.94 MHz and 20K0A2B, 20K0A2D, 20K0F2B, 20K0F1D and 20K0F2D on 154.57 MHz and 154.6 MHz.

See 47 CFR 95.2731(b) - MURS stations may be used for telecommand and telemetry functions. MURS is an attractive option for ground-to-air telecommand or remote control (command channel) but other bands (for example, 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz) should be used for air-to-ground data/video links.

Power limit is 2 watts. MURS regulations are part of Part 95 of the FCC rules.

All MURS users must share all frequencies with all other users.

  • 151.820 MHz - MURS Channel 1 - Maximum 11.25 kHz bandwidth
  • 151.880 MHz - MURS Channel 2 - Maximum 11.25 kHz bandwidth
  • 151.940 MHz - MURS Channel 3 - Maximum 11.25 kHz bandwidth
  • 154.570 MHz - MURS Channel 4 - Maximum 20 kHz bandwidth
  • 154.600 MHz - MURS Channel 5 - Maximum 20 kHz bandwidth

900 MHz RC Frequencies

The Part 15 900 MHz band (902-928 MHz band, shared with ISM - center 915MHz and amateur radio) is home to numerous other datalink systems, including remote control technology that utilizes frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) techniques for high power and long range remote control capability for aircraft and drones. If frequency hopping is used, long range transmission is possible with the 900 MHz band. The

Like 2.4 GHz, 900 MHz may suffer from interference and frequency congestion, as numerous other wideband (such as fixed-frequency wireless video senders, CCTV transmission networks, etc.), narrowband (cordless phones) and frequency-hopping systems operate in this band, some clustered around 915 MHz and other frequencies. On-site business radio walkie-talkie systems using frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) also use this frequency band. Like 2.4GHz, 902-928 MHz is also an amateur radio band. However, 900 MHz is usually less congested than 2.4 GHz and offers superior range due to the lower frequency band used.

Some of these systems includes back to control station video transmission and/or datalink capability and may operate on more than one frequency band at once (cf. 2.4G band or 2.4 GHz band and 900MHz band). It is important to note that systems operate under Part 15 of the FCC rules, not Part 95.

2.4 GHz RC Frequencies

The Part 15 2.4 GHz band - or "2.4G band" (2.4-2.5 GHz or 2400-2500 MHz band, shared with ISM - center frequency 2.45 GHz or 2450 MHz and amateur radio) is home to numerous other datalink systems, including remote control technology that utilizes frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) techniques for high power and long range remote control capability for aircraft and drones. Some of these systems includes back to control station video transmission and/or datalink capability and may operate on more than one frequency band at once (cf. 2.4G band or 2.4 GHz band and 900MHz band). It is important to note that systems operate under Part 15 of the FCC rules, not Part 95.

Current 26/27 MHz Model Control Frequencies

26.96 MHz to 27.28 MHz band. New channel numbering sequence. New UK 27 MHz RC channels. 100mW ERP transmit power limit, 10 kHz bandwidth limit. 27MHz AM RC. Only 26.995 MHz, 27.045 MHz, 27.095 MHz, 27.145 MHz and 27.195 MHz are specifically designated for non-CB voice use. The other channels are shared with the EU standardized CEPT or "mid band" CB allocation (AM/FM/SSB) and therefore may experience serious interference due to nearby strong CB signals.

Only channel 4 (Brown), Channel 9 (Red), Channel 14 (Yellow) and Channel 19 (Green) are allocated for remote control and data/telemetry use. The other frequencies are also used for the CB radio service.

European Standardization EU or CEPT

  • CEPT ETSI SRD Bands

It should be noted that not all EC / EU countries permit operation on all bands, additional country-specific restrictions as well as additional country-specific frequencies and bands (and European standardized RC channels) exist. See ETSI EN 300.220 and others for band-specific restrictions on power output, duty cycle, transmission length, listen-before-transmit, adaptive power control, adaptive frequency control and specific channels. No transmission length limit on the 26995, 27045, 27095, 27145 and 27195 channels when used for model control.

Because the 26/27 MHz RC channels fall within the SRD band and are used for numerous other purposes and have the potential for adjacent-channel CB radio service interference, they are rarely used for RC purposes except under certain circumstances. The 35 MHz and 40 MHz VHF bands plus higher VHF/UHF and above 1 GHz range SRD allocations are more attractive. Unfortunately, the 2.4 GHz band suffers from extreme interference as well. Many countries permit higher power and/or less restrictive limits on the 35 MHz, 40 MHz and higher bands for RC and telemetry uses.

ETSI regulations for SRD use also include wireless microphones on the 26.958 MHz to 27.272 MHz band and the 40.435 MHz to 40.925 MHz band with a 50mW transmit power limit.

100 milliwatt limit on the 5 RC 26-28 MHz channels. 10 kHz bandwidth limit on the 5 specific channels. 10 milliwatt limit on any other frequency within the 26957-27283 SRD band.

India

India permits use the the 26 MHz / 27 MHz band for CB radio (26.965 MHz - 27.275 MHz, band actually defined 26.957 MHz - 27.283 MHz) as well as remote control RC purposes. Maximum power output is 5 watts. No license required.

Some sources contradict the RC frequency list, including news articles about RC aircraft using frequencies 27.250 MHz and 27.260 MHz being confiscated by security agencies at ports....this would seemingly clash with the 27.255 MHz RC allocation as well as the old 27.25 MHz and 27.26 MHz RC channels. RC and model control band also defined as 26.957 MHz to 27.283 MHz or 26.96 MHz to 27.28 MHz depending on the source.

Maximum output power 100mW or 0.1 watts 40 MHz, reserved for "general R/C operation" - mirrors the 40.68 MHz ISM center frequency allocation 40.66-40.7 MHz. Usually referred to as 40MHz RC or 40MHz FM RC. The 40 MHz band is the least commonly used, due to the shared nature of the frequency band and the resultant increased likelihood of interference. The general migration to "GHz systems" (usually on the 2.4 GHz band) means the lower "MHz bands" are slowly becoming less and less popular in general.
