If you go by the advertisement than this radio is not available i Europe (35). so 6 meters is probably available by special order. Haven't seen an Futaba advertised on 6 meters, yet they are available

6 meter is not necessarilly a European band... (might not be a Europea band at all...)
You should call the Futaba rep and check if you can get your desire frequenc

6 meter is almost certainly the ham band. 50 MHz, though there's some (obsolete) R/C frequencys at 53 MHz. Both are in the 50-54 MHz amateur radio 6m band, and requires a ham radio license to use. It's probably also legal for use in most of the world, which is an added bonus if you travel.
But the previous poster is correct -- the Futaba site (and Tower, for that matter) doesn't explicitly mention 50 MHz as an option for any of the radios, but yet it's available. Perhaps you should call up Tower and ask.

Yup.
