Frequency board thing for club Where to buy ?

Hello, I just joined a R/C club and at the meething, we were discussing where to buy a vinyl strip with all the frequency numbers on it. Since the old one was paper and was ruined in the rain. Does anyone know where something like this can be purchased ?

Thanks, WBB

Based on what I've seen, they are usually home made. However, any place that prints signs (for real estate, construction, etc.) should be able to do the job. Should be listed in the yellow pages.

I would not be surprised to find that such an item could be purchased from the AMA.
You could print out on computer and have someone ssuch as Offic Max to laminate it.

Our frequency boar is made of a piece of floor molding. I just took a marker, marked off sections and write in the numbers. I cover 72 mhz channels and 27 mhz channels as those are the most common at our field.

We use a piece of metal rod, about 3 feet long, driven into the ground about 12 inches, to hold it. A metal tube is held onto the pole with copper plumbing straps, similar to what you would use to support down a water pipe in your house.

Use clothes pins to mark the used frequencies. The photo shows the pole.

I made one for a local club not far from me. I have a vinyl cutter, so I went ahead and cut the numbers out in vinyl, the placed them on a 24"x36" piece of plexiglass. This way it can get wet, muddy, dirty, grimy and still be shot with Windex or any glass cleaner, and cleaned up. I did theirs for $50 including shipping (they are on the other side of town, and at the time, I did not have a car ), and would be happy to do the same for you if you want? I presume this would be an FM 72Mhz board, correct? Highband (channel 36 thru 60) or Lowband (channel 11 thru 35) or both? They used the large "Gator Clips" on the sides of the board next to the numbers to indicate which channels were in use. This also helped in keep the board utilitarian and also enabled members to "clip" their AMA cards to the board as well if need be.

Just let me know if interested and I can get you something worked out fairly quick.

Take care,

Our local club has a large metal box with a hinged door, mounted on two posts in the ground. Inside the box are pegs mounted on the wall with numbers painted below them. On each peg is a numbered wood tag with a clothes pin attached to the tag that clips on each of the pegs. You just open the box and remove the tag you need and clip it to your transmitter antenna.
