Re: are kalgoorlie police still using analogue?

Port Hedland is analogue also I know it's not where you asked but just adding that. Matt and I was in Albany over the weekend and they seem to be still Analog as I visited someone and heard an old familiar sound coming from the speaker of their receiver. I know that was also not asked for but just ...

Re: Yes; ANOTHER gas bus fire!

They've said that the gas powered buses aren't going to be withdrawn.. The buses are withdrawing themselves one a month it seems. It was mentioned on talkback radio this morning that if the drivers follwed their own hazzard risk matrix, the buses are now on the highest risk rating. Any other indust...

Re: Unusual clicking sound

Is it on all frequencies in VHF Hi band or spot frequency and can you say which suburb, then if someone is driving by they can have a listen and see if they hear it and perhaps if have a sig strength meter can see where it is strongest. Good foxhunt practice considering it could be restarting someti...

Re: Social media and emergencies

Probably a good place to mention a new website that started today for all the good and
bad reasons mentioned in the article.

http://www.alertwa.com

Combines all sorts of feeds from councils, transport,health,emergency services plus weather and other things.

Re: Tracking weather balloons

I would imagine there would be a please return if found message on the radiosonde, but then again they are probably just classified as disposable items. I would have expected more than $100 myself, as you say including wages, the balloon and hydrogen. Using the $100 as the base, that would be $2.92 ...

Re: Tracking weather balloons

Same conclusion I came to. Unless there is some way to add a scaling to the coloured lines they don't tell you much. Well I concluded the humidity was fairly stable not moving too much as that line on the graph was fairly straight. Lat/Long is only available on digital transmissions from what I can ...

Re: Tracking weather balloons

I took a video of my screen and received audio. http://vimeo.com/57429578 , it's not a great video. The radiosonde in the video you mentioned was a digital radiosonde where the analog ones appear to be used here. So the signal is a musical tone of 6 tones not the raspy sound of digital. It is also a...

Re: Tracking weather balloons

Very interesting. 401.5MHz is the frequency. I listened at 7pm for a while and nothing heard. I went back at 8pm and heard the radiosonde. In fact it was still just audible at 8:38pm when I stopped. Next, just for fun will be trying to decode it to see if I can. I installed the software to decode it...
