Re: Uniden UBCD436PT

First I've seen it so nothing I can really say. Expensive but so was the 396 brand new.

Re: New DFES UHF channels discussion

Can you elaborate on new UHF channels?

Yes that's correct about offset, but respectfully I would not like the CTCSS tone publicly known.

Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

Can't seem to get anything off the direct link for the main 6IP/6AR (running, no sound), and broadcastify doesn't find the stream.

Re: Transport Companies

Depends, some company's might lease or rent a radio system so hard to search ACMA database. Otherwise try searching some licensee details I can find the link later if you can't.

Re: Could this be programed to listen to Dfes?

Looking at the specs yes it should.

However legally speaking, do you have an Amateur Radio license? This radio would not be legal to use in Australia without one, and won't be legal to use on UHF CB channels without the appropriate certification (and the fact you can do more than 5W output!).

Re: WiFi interference at train stations

You can check the ACMA database for registered transmitters. There are all sorts of wireless things at stations including for radios, possibly some passenger assistance systems (although most might be cabled?), and the trains video system is over "wifi" but I don't know what frequency or strength.

Re: VHF-Mid Band Use

It's still useful. Yes Some areas mid band can be better than high band but that's a topographical thing. Main use is sector channels, where the control channel is now almost always high band it's easier to have mid band sector channels. This is because most appliances have one high band and one mid...

I'm probably being naughty in saying this but no, ESA and ESB will be replaced by C and D.

Re: New DFES UHF channels discussion

I think somewhere in there you mean ESC and ESD 220 and 221?

Re: FESA frequencies

By bandwidth do you mean spacing? 12.5khz is the standard these days I believe.

No need to know CTCSS/DSC to listen. These are only required to transmit for their programmed radios to receive the transmissions.

Re: DFES digital

A bit misleading putting that link in this thread. CAD is the despatch system, nothing to do with radios.

Re: WA Police - new cars and siren (2016)

TE216 Commodore passing the city had a new siren, dual tone but no rumbler. Very American sounding with two wails going at the same time but differently timed, very loud.
