Re: Painting ants

Grab the paint you want, grab a non metallic version and then spray it onto say a bit of A4 paper and stick it in the microwave (after the paint dries fully). Stick it on for 20 or 30 seconds and then if the paint is nice and cool it's good to use on the antenna as it will be RF transparent.

Re: Tracking of Fire Appliances

The tender was, and the installations I've seen in metro so far are, 4G + sat failover. 4G, sat and gps are all in one convenient little roof mounted antenna. They're quite a good bit of kit and as TROAM has said a lot of features.

Most of the time no. WAPOL also have SES 1 to 20 programmed into their vehicle and handheld radios.

Re: DFES 6AR

A small mag base antenna of the net will probably do, however I can't help but recommend the Diamond X series antennas. I've got two of these and they work a treat.

Re: WA SES VHF Channels

Not sure where you heard that from?

ACMA are just implementing the HGS meaning freqs will change in the 400 meg range but not change band. Happy to be corrected.
