49 MHz Radio has started again, and has gotten more active since the summer of 2019. The part 15 49 MHz transmitter is a 5 channel NFM 49 MHz transmitter from Radio Shack that is set on a frequency of 49.890 MHz. 49 MHz Radio (49N4AE) got off the ground during July 2019 on a frequency of 49.860 MHz, and a secondary 49 MHz transmitter signed on the air on 49.405 MHz. Both were operating at 100 mW in the AM mode. Because of Halloween and trick or treating, and toy walkie talkies being used on 49.860 MHz and 49.405 MHz, which is the duplex 2 way AM radio frequency, 49 MHz Radio changed from AM to Narrow Band FM on 49.890 MHz. Also the same audio can be heard on 94.5 FM and AM 540. It’s a whole new operation under part 15 rules. The station plays various radio programming, various video clips, and any other clean radio programming during the holidays and special events. Soon 49 MHz will be getting back into morse code and SSTV signals.
