I purchased 2 ft-60r radios. One for me and one for my wife. Hers is used very little. However, in our ham club a guy offered to mod mine for me. It's all well and good.

However, I was messing around with my wife's radio and found that I got an error in the 420-430 range. I did a reset and all and nothing changed. Being that my radio had the mod, it was a moot point mine.

Well, I did a check in the manual and noticed the range is 430-450. If my understanding is correct, we have 420-430. I would like to have that range available.

On my radio I have it, but not my wifes. Did the uhf range change the last few years?

The Amateur 70cm UHF range has been 420-450 MHz for many years, but the segment from 420-430MHZ is mostly ATV and radio control links, thus not much need for a handheld such as an FT-60R to xmit in that portion of the band.

If you start going below 440 with FM you will make many new friends......most of them will want your head on a platter and by the by, rightly so.
