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 (if a number is showing here, push the *Lock button until OFF appears). 04= Enter the same frequency as the one you want to program. 05= OFF (if a number is showing here, push the *Lock button until OFF appears). 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.

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.
Two way Radio (walkie Talkie) is very essential equipment for any off-roader, as this alone device is responsible for establishing clear and life saving communication while off-roading when you don't have mobile coverage. Buying the radio is the first best step in right direction for equipping yourself and then setting it's frequency is the second. When buying a two way radio make sure you buy the UHF and not the VHF version. Simple way to find out is when you switch on the radio the frequency displayed should be 462.000, if it is showing Channels instead of frequency As the shop keeper to change it to frequency mode. Without setting frequency you cannot establish a communication with other off-roaders in the convoy. Although setting up the frequency is one-time task but it's a bit complex job that you need to follow the instructions very precisely. However once you have tapped into the main details, it is very simple and follows the same concept of receiving and sending frequencies. This should help those members who have Radio were we have to manually set frequencies.

Once CH03 is displayed press # again. Type 4 6 2 6 1 2 again - Once again this will automatically pick up 462.612 s Press the # key Change the channel number displayed on the top right corner of the display screen by pressing either the A or B key on the right side of the key pad. Once CH03 is displayed press "C". This will set your frequencies (receiving & transmitting) for Channel 3, similarly you can follow the same steps along with the frequency numbers to set the desired channel. I suggest you print and keep a copy of this with you when off-roading, it can not only help you, but others around you. Hope this is helpful.
