Thank you so much for this info. I've been researching the various bands and have some spotted information. This is EXACTLY what I needed. Looks like 1.2/1.3Ghz is for me. Now I need to do some research on filters.

Glad we could make these. I feel the same way about finding this kind of info to help people understand what options you have when setting things up.

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the 23cm band (1240mhz-1300mhz) only able to be used by amateur radio technician class license holders? I noticed that you said that it was part of the bands useable by amateur radio but said nothing about licensing. Awesome videos by the way, your contributions to the RC community are priceless. God bless.

This is Stone Blue not Alex but what I understand is yes you can get a license but the lack of use on the this band now is also a hit and miss area with the license. I would say most don't use one or have one. Not an overly used band anymore and also one that is not really policed from my understanding.
