Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

Fixed a fault with the mid-band radio, as there was no audio. (Tait 2020)

Re: News: Govt under pressure to set up rural fire service

Sort of. I think what people really wanted was a completely independent rural service like the BFS used to be but this arrangement appears to be, I dunno, a DFES advisory group..?

Re: Transport Companies

Many transport companies use MPT trunking ~415MHz. They don't use their own frequencies and share channels. It's a bit of a challenge to listen - you'll need a trunk tracker that supports MPT trunking (rare), or a SDR TV dongle and some software to glue it all together or you could scan the band to ...
