What can you get it to?

Have you checked the manual?

The switches follow the simple binary system.

small 4 switches go from 6.25 - 12.5 - 25KHz to 50KHz
The 8 switches go to: 100KHz, 200KHz, 400KHz, 800KHz, 1600KHz, 3200KHz, 6400KHz, 12800KHz

When they're all set to 0, the board transmits at 86MHz. Now whatever you set on the switches
is added to 86000KHz and you've got your frequency.

Follow the examples and you should be able to work it out easily.

If not, there's still LCD unit, which is really easy to use d'oh!

Do you have a freq. meter or are you using a receiver to figure this out? A receiver
could be tuning into a spurious signal.

Example is there for 100.000 MHz

The settings are also in the table. If I give it to you, it will look
exactly the same as in the table.

What do the instructions tell you to do with 4 small switches?

1,0,0,0

Duh
