Frequency Conversion options:

The Magnum 1012 has eleven different frequency and Code selections:

  • Code 1: 10 Meter Band (28.000 29.690MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code 2: 12 Meter Band (24.890 24.990MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code 3: 454 channels (25.165 29.655MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code 4: 454 channels PL (25.160 29.650MHz, 0 Raster), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code d: German 80 channel CB (26.565 27.405MHz), AM (1W)/FM/SSB
  • Code EU: 40 channel CB (26.965 27.405MHz), AM(1W)/FM/SSB
  • Code E: 40 channel CB (26.965 27.405MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code PL: 40 channel CB (26.960 27.400MHz, 0 Raster), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code U1: UK 40 channel CB (27.601 27.991MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code U2: UK 40 channel CB (26.965 27.405MHz), AM/FM/SSB
  • Code US: USA 40 channel CB (26.965 27.405MHz), AM/SSB

We usually use code 3 and this is the Frequency Chart.

Code 3 is the most popular but then the 12 meter band is not accessible. To reprogram to code 2  "on the fly" is presently impossible.  You have to access the contacts, short two pins, turn on the power all at the same time. It is just not something you do while on the hiking trail. It's almost more accurate to describe it as a 10 or 12 meter radio.



 We do not carry this radio anymore, it didn't work out for us. Please don't ask us to sell you one.  Thank you.

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new tuned radio will NOT
sound great  with a stock mic on it  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone. 
My personal favorites are the Astatic 636L and RD104E.

If you place an order from outside the continental USA, we will calculate your actual shipping and send you a PayPal payment request.  We do NOT export Antennas or Base station radios.
