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...

Re: IRC chat dead?

Old hat now I'd say. Not many people around here these days, popular in thing is Discord. Maybe setup a channel there and see if anyone wants to join.

Re: Changing frequency limits on Baofeng firmware

If the chip spec's don't support it, I wouldn't and don't expect it to go that low.

Re: 6AR Interference

Whoever it is needs to be hunted down. Very easy to do with the right equipment as they keep transmitting for long periods of time. You can hear a TV/radio or some kind of audio book type thing in the background. To my untrained ear, its malicious. You can't be accidentally pressing PTT for hours on...

Re: Main Roads WA

I haven't heard of them using conventional analogue for a while. ACMA only lists a few simplex frequency's. I dear say they use something we can't access.

Re: Unable to hear Transperth Command anymore?

Which part of the network is LTE? Busses are operated privately, of which they have almost? all changed to digital. However I thought these were trunks not LTE. Bus security is separate again. Trains and Transit Officer/customer service is still analogue. This will be changed to LTE in coming years.
