Re: PTA going to digital LTE

My understanding is that if it's LTE, it's similar to a mobile phone network which of course is not accessible by anyone without the authentication hardware.

Re: 6AR Interference

It seems to have started about 1547. I've checked all the ones I can think of north of the river with a roof mounted antenna and nothing is transmitting up here (very quick check though).

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.
