Re: FAQ: CB regulations and frequencies

Firstly the Baofeng is not type class rated to transmit on Australian CB. Secondly, this is a reason you need to have the appropriate license to handle this product. If you don't know what you are doing, what frequencies/offset you should be using, you could accidentally transmit on something you ar...

Re: Legal or not?

Guessing that's via pager message? Anything from telecommunications or something along those lines is a no no.

Re: Legal or not?

I'm having trouble finding this myself, and wording like that would be a bit outdated in this modern social media world where information of happenings around you is often beneficial. If any wording like that does exist, it would likely be largely ignored.

Re: Public Transport Frequencies and Links

Do you have *all* the frequencies in your scanner? There are a ton of repeaters for the transits etc since they use portables. They are just standard Motorola handhelds.

Re: Public Transport Frequencies and Links

You can listen from home, as long as you are in range of a repeater. The PTA network has a massive range of repeaters so there is likely something near you.

Re: Strange activity on CB 07

Being a repeater channel there is likely an active repeater on it. Registered CB repeaters need to identify with morse code (I think) every so often.

Re: Pager Freqs

Just off the top of my head I don't think most normal scanners with pass it through correctly without a discriminator tap.

PTA train stuff? In a couple of years they will be on a dedicated network so not much longer to listen to them.

Re: VFO mode on UBC72XLT

From memory I don't believe the 73/92/93XLT's have that. You need to program a channel. Just leave say channels 91-99 blank and its only a couple of buttons to "program" them. Then for the next frequency you can even leave it in program mode and just enter something else.

Re: Public Transport Frequencies and Links

Yes, that is PTA rail security (Transit Officers)/customer service/revenue. There are a lot more repeaters than those four though, depends on your location. Easy to check if they work, its a very active channel usually. Unfortunately in a couple of years when the new internal digital radio network i...

Re: Public Transport Frequencies and Links

489.400 Wilsons contracted to Transperth *bus* I don't know if it works anymore since buses have moved systems I have a feeling they have as well. I tried listening a little while back and got nothing. In fact its not even registered here any more. And just to be clear, Wilsons do not do train secur...
