Dear Carnity Offroaders,

With the successful growth of the Carnity Offroad club we are now frequently having several convoys driving in the same area. Due to the fact that we were still working on one single frequency, this caused sometimes confusion and interference between convoys. 

Because of that, we have decided to add 4 new frequencies to our list, and to use the exisiting freqency 462.8875 Mhz only as backup purpose. 

A comprehensive explanation can be found below, and also shows the frequencies and tutorial on how to program them in your radio.  Please familiarize yourself with your radio and try programming the channels at home. If in doubt you can approach us before briefing time so we have time to assist you in setting up your radio.

It's better everyone program 4 new +1 old frequency in their radio so they are ready to tune any frequency anytime.

Well done @Frederic for all the research, suggestion and tutorials. Good to to see another radio expert after @Rahimdadmanaging all this single handedly.

      With the growth of the Carnity Offroad Club, it has become essential to add more frequencies in our radios, so each parallel convoy can broadcast on their own preferred channel, and avoid interference from other convoys in the same area.
      The 4 new radio frequencies are listed below:

      Our existing Carnity Frequency 462.8875 Mhz will now be used as Backup Frequency ONLY on Channel 5.
       
      Below you will find the programming instructions for the two most commonly used radios in Carnity Offroad. Please get yourself familiarized with your radio, as it's an essential tool for any offroader, and this device is responsible for establishing clear and life-saving communication while venturing offroad.
      If you are planning on buying a radio, make sure it is the UHF version and not the VHF version. We recommend the Motorola/Crony MT777, Crony CN888, or Baofeng UV-5R because of excellent price / quality ratio, Dragon Mart has many models, just make sure it has the ability to set the frequencies manually (not a paired model).
       
      Programming the Motorola/Crony MT777:

      Note: This radio has 2 operating modes called "Frequency" and "Channel". To switch between these modes, keep the ENTER button pressed while switching on the radio. Pressing the VFO/MR button while you're in Frequency mode will bring you to the combined mode, which is basically a screen that shows both the channel and the frequency. You can use either one of these modes during operation. 
      To Program the Channels:
      1. Make sure your radio is switched off.
      2. Press the Moni (black button on top of the orange one on your left side), and MENU key together while switching on the radio.
      3. Wait for the set to display SELF (which means manual setup).
      4. Press Enter and it will show the Channel number.
      5. You can choose which channel to program by selecting it from the rotary selector knob on the top of your device.
      6. Once you have the desired channel, press ENTER.
      7. Type your first frequency you want to program.
      8. Press ENTER on every setting below to go through the advanced settings and verify if they are programmed as following:
       (If above settings are not correct they can be changed with the rotary knob on the top keep pressing enter until your set displays the next channel to be set).
      03=OFF
      04= Enter the same frequency as the one you want to program.
      05= OFF
      06= OFF
      07= ADD
      08= HIGH(H)
      09= NARROW
      10=--------
      9. Repeat from Step 5 to program the rest of your channels.
      Very useful Youtube video below:
      Alternative method (for some MT777 models that have old channels programmed or corrupt settings):
      1. Make sure the radio is in Frequency Mode. Type in the frequency you want to program. E.g 446.00625
      2. Press MENU and then press the VFO/MR button. The channel number will start to blink.
      3. Use the rotary selector knob to select on which channel  you want to save this frequency.
      4. Press VFO/MR button again to confirm and exit.
      Keypad can be locked by pushing the * LOCK button for a few seconds.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Programming the Crony CN888:

      Note: This radio has 3 operating modes called "Frequency", "VFO", and "Channel". You can toggle between these modes by pressing the orange Function button on the top left corner, followed by pressing 1 (Mode).  
      Programming the radio as described below can only be done in VFO mode. 
      1. Switch on the radio.
      2. Press the Function Key (orange button on top left corner).
      3. Press 4 (STEP) until it shows 6.25. Press EXIT to confirm.
      4. Now type the first frequency you want to program. Eg. 446.00625
      5. Now press the # button. The Channel number in the corner of the display will start to blink.
      6. Select with the A (up) or B(down) buttons to choose wich channel you want to save the frequency.
      7. Press the C button. the radio will confirm by saying "SAVED AS RX FREQUENCY"
      8. Press the # button again. The Channel number in the corner of the display will start to blink.
      9. Press the D button. the radio will confirm by saying "SAVED AS TX FREQUENCY"
       
      Keypad can be locked by pushing the Function button, followed by the *F.L button.
