Frequency control is accomplished by a set of" numbered" clothes pins, one for each frequency. Before you turn on your transmitter, you must get the corresponding pin for your frequency, and replace it with your AMA card under the remaining frequency clip and leave it on the board until you return the pin. Do a radio check & other aircraft equipment safety check as required by AMA flying field rules.
