Yeah, if you consider $65 for the radio, $50 for the conversion, and at least $20 in shipping costs, you're at $125.  So, a little cheaper, but not by much.  The newer radio would also come with a warranty.

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 didnít comment at all on that.

I found stuff like this: http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/item.cfm?itemId=170207 and itís cheap.  7 channel which is more then Iíd need, but Iím almost certain itís set up for air frequency (72mhz).
Yes it is.  Ad says it's on channel 26.
When buying radioís 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;
Phone: 714-978-1895
Fax: 714-978-1540
and see if they will do the conversion on a Vanguard FM 7 channel system.
