understanding inputting frequencies

OK, so nobody seems to want to help me programme my radio, fair enough, but can anyone answer this then. If a radio gives a frequency of 449.3125 and you can only input 6 digits into a radio how does it work, i.e which digit do you miss off? I've found all the codes I need but they all give 7 digits and the radio only accepts 6.

You have no choice but to omit the las digit but clearly if you are able then round up or down to the nearest sixth digit , hope this helps

Thank you, that is so kind, all I am trying to do is to programme a Leixen 898vv onto the frequencies of my mitex General, licenced radios but nobody else seems to want to help, many thanks once again.

the last '5' is entered automatically - so you will be on exactly the correct frequency.

Yep, fully agree with G4RMT, the final 5 may also not be shown or is a tiny digit at the end (depending on the handset you have). I'm using BR-5U's (BaoFeng) and found the easiest way to set-up was with CHIRP (free software for a vast amount of 2-way units) and a programming cable that came with the units. Google can find you the software and Amazon can point out the right programming cable. Big advantage is once you have the programme set, you can programme all your other radios is minutes.
