Re: Shortwave Newbie

But it's only got a 3.5mm antenna jack, not a BNC or other, so adding a decent antenna to it will be an issue.

A video I made demonstrating the interference caused by one of those Power Ethernet network adapters.

Re: Shortwave Newbie

I bought this unit as well (Degen DE1103), and think it's a great little unit. Only had it a few weeks, so haven't really picked up a lot.
Looking at the best way of using the 10m wire antenna in a 1st floor apartment?

Re: Foundation Licence

So, out of the class of February 2014, who has got their license already? Still waiting for mine, due to missing a signature on the WIA form :( D'oh!
I'm getting an itchy PTT trigger finger...

Antennas for apartment balconies

Hi all, Just thinking about what options I have for my apartment in regards to antennas? Initially I'll be using just a 2m/70cm antenna, but would like to add a 10m half wave dipole later on. My balcony faces 060 deg (give or take) and is on the first floor. But I have access to a balcony on the 4th...

Re: Foundation Licence

Yeah Yeah, well anyway.. I passed :) 23/25 correct on the multiple choice, and 100% for practical and oral.
Now just waiting for my license to be processed :)

And Dougie, if you mention the word "upgrade", I will beat you with a scanner antenna :) That goes for you too Gav!

This coming weekend is the first Foundation course for Ham College for 2014. The course is full with eight people registered -- including a WARSUG moderator who's finally taking the plunge and getting his licence ;) I only did it to shut him up :) Pestering me for years to get it!

Re: trunking systems in Perth

Searching for Burswood came up with these results, not sure if they are current.

Re: MOTOTRBO DP3400

Ok, I'm given DSD a run, and having some luck but not fully decoding the transmissions.

493.525 and 498.725 I believe are 1 channel (With the first being the repeater output)
494.050 and 498.250 being channel 2 (With being the output).

Now to just decode it..

Re: P25 Radios

Thanks. Yeah 492.325 is the Output, as I can hear it in Maylands, where as when I'm at the airport, I can only head 497.525. Thank you! Hoping to still work out the Aerocare ramp radios next. But I think I will not have any luck as they are Motorola TRBO. Maybe the Uniden BCD436HP will do it?
