Hi Shelby. It's frequency limits are determined by the transmitter that
provides the 14 mHz drive.
It is a direct relationship - you move the 14 mHz transmitter/receiver
up 5kHz, the 50 mHz signal moves the same distance and direction.
If the driving transmitter covers a sufficient range of frequencies
to provide the source, then you can operate the entire band. However,
you may wish to look at the tuning when you get higher up in the band.
I enjoy mine, and it works great.
