RC frequencies for Australia

[For a general explanation of rc frequencies & channels, use this link.]

This page gives the rc frequencies and their associated channel numbers in use in Australia. There are 3 frequency bands available for radio control use, excluding the standard 27MHz band used with most rc toys. The bands are:

Frequency use may vary from club to club, with regards to which models use which of the above bands. The 40MHz band is used the least, due to potential interference from two-way radios and paging systems.


Frequency chart for the 29MHz band:

Used mainly for rc surface vehicles i.e. cars and boats.

Ch.# / Frequency (MHz) Ch.# / Frequency (MHz) Ch.# / Frequency (MHz)
10 / 29.725 20 / 29.825 30 / 29.925
11 / 29.735 21 / 29.835 31 / 29.935
12 / 29.745 22 / 29.845 32 / 29.945
13 / 29.755 23 / 29.855 33 / 29.955

16 / 29.785 26 / 29.885 36 / 29.985
17 / 29.795 27 / 29.895 37 - 49 / reserved
18 / 29.805 28 / 29.905
19 / 29.815 29 / 29.915

Frequency chart for the 36MHz band:

Shared by rc aircraft and watercraft, and the only band permitted for aircraft use. Different areas may separate the channels i.e. odds for watercraft, evens for aircraft.

601 / 36.010 621 / 36.210 641 / 36.410

616 / 36.160 636 / 36.360 656 / 36.560
617 / 36.170 637 / 36.370 657 / 36.570
618 / 36.180 638 / 36.380 658 / 36.580
619 / 36.190 639 / 36.390 659 / 36.590
620 / 36.200 640 / 36.400

Frequency chart for the 40MHz band:

Reserved for general rc operation, but used little.

Ch.# / Frequency (MHz) Ch.# / Frequency (MHz)
50 / 40.665 52 / 40.675
51 / 40.685 53 / 40.695

The above rc frequencies for Australia are for traditional MHz radio control systems only.
Newer 2.4GHz systems do not need designated frequency channels, since they operate with different technology.
