Baofeng DM-1701 first impressions

I recieved the radio yesterday in the mail, after just over 14 days, which wasn't too bad considering it shipped from China. I ordered it for $118.25 from eBay. It arrived in the original box, which was a pleasant suprise, compared to the bubble wrap that they normally ship in. Unboxing the radio wa...

Re: PTA going to digital LTE

But if Transperth are going through all the trouble of replacing the old radio system infrastructure, if they are indeed switching to PTToC, why would they bother?

Re: PTA going to digital LTE

Seems like some of the guards have new radios now, they look like Tait handhelds rather than the standard Motorola ones. Probably getting ready for the digital changeover. Will they be using P25 or DMR?

Waroona VFES appliances

Got a picture of all the Waroona appliances at the Waroona Country Fair. Saw their Collar Tank trailer too but it was behind a fence.

Re: DMR systems to listen to

Upon closer inspection, I can't easily change the band to 450-520 without having to re-enter all the channels, so I'll probably have to make a separate configuration for special occasions.

Re: DMR systems to listen to
