Re: Australian Geographical Radio Frequency Map

By the way, while it was up ... I notice that the information in it was a little bit outdated ... for example someone that I know, who already upgraded his license long time ago still shown as an F-call ... I wonder how often does the database on this site getting refreshed from the ACMA database ...

Re: New Wouxun dual band mobile imminent

The $60,000 question... Quite possibly ... but hey, if the quality is the same and does the same job why not buy one of them if they are a lot cheaper ... Cheaper in price probably not necessarily means that they are worse in the quality ... there is a possibility that they can sell them cheaper be...

Re: scanning mobile phone air waves

It's worth pointing out that it is also illegal under the Telecommunications act to listen to telephone calls. I think we can live with that since in many countries (such as the UK) scanners are illegal outright. I don't quite understand this actually ... how about the amateur radio transceivers th...

Re: What is Amateur Radio

Some hams only ever talk to locals on the repeaters (much like UHF CBers would, except without the language and farting into the mike) At the heart of every radio frequency transmitter is an array of electronic circuitry generating a RF signal that carries useful information, or intelligence.
