Bellow is what Airtronics sent me:


>We can still convert a vanguard from 72 to 75mhz. It must be a FM system. We can not do AM. The cost would >be about 50.00. You must send in your transmitter and receiver.

>The manual, we may still have one. Ask for the manual when you send in your equipment.

>Airtronics Info


Guess the other gentleman was right to say that cost of this unit plus conversion just about equals a new unit.  I asked them about doing the conversion myself but they didn’t comment at all on that.

I found stuff like this: http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/item.cfm?itemId=170207 and it’s cheap.  7 channel which is more then I’d need, but I’m almost certain it’s set up for air frequency (72mhz).


Yes it is.  Ad says it's on channel 26.


When buying radio’s new I know you can request the frequency but on a used one how hard is it to get a shop somewhere to change it or can a semi-intelligent neophyte do the conversion?


Contact Airtronics at;

and see if they will do the conversion on a Vanguard FM 7 channel system.
