RC frequencies for New Zealand

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

This page gives the approved MHz rc frequencies and their associated channel numbers in use in New Zealand. There are 6 frequency bands available for radio control use, they are:

There are certain warnings attached to some frequencies, particularly the 72MHz band, see the tables below for clarification.

Frequency chart for the 72MHz band:

(Channels 751 - 779, marked red, are not recommended due to potential interference from crane and logging operations.
Channels 701 - 725, marked yellow, should be used with caution in public parks, as these frequencies are shared by short-range auditory aid devices.)

All the above rc frequencies for New Zealand are for the MHz radio control systems only; 2.4GHz systems, which are now commonplace, use different technology and don't use designated frequency channels in the same way.
