Actually while some of the Safety On Stage folks are amateurs, and often have amateur frequencies as a fallback, I believe the radios used are commercial ones on leased frequencies. (I just don't know what those frequencies are, sorry...)

The radios are owned by Rally WA & CAMS.
They have leased frequencies and if you pick them up you will only hear codes like M1,M2,M3 FIV scramble and if theres an crash on stage like any motor sports event ( Including Barbagallo Raceway) procedures are to use mobile phones.
We used phones last weekend at barbagallo

We know - there's no way we're getting out of our luxurious white concrete tubs ;)

And my radio message to Race Control included information that the driver was not making any attempt to exit his vehicle and I couldn't see him moving. That was before the fire service or the FIV had arrived on-scene.

As for the flaggies being behind - yes, the procedure seems to have changed. When NaFenn and I started, the system they were operating under was basically "do three events as a trainee under instruction, then do the CAMS module and if it all goes well, you can apply for your officials licence".

When we turned up to the recent race meeting, the forms have all changed, you only now need to do one race meeting to be assessed. Seems a bit short to me, but who knows ... {shrugs}

At least NaFenn and I have plenty of experience operating a radio in a controlled environment - some of the other new flaggies are a tiny bit radio shy ;)

I agree....CAMS in its wisdom has decided all officils need only do 1 event before applying for their General Licence.Then you must do your task module ( Flags,Fire Rescue ect) to get your licenced endorsed

The 3 event system was the best and should be re Introduced

The Fire Crew has a six month probation period to allow us to see our new officials responce to emergencies/situations.Then we decide if you suited,if not you will be asked to try something else.We have had 1 guy who we sent off to be a grid marshal at drift

I can understand their desire to get more people into officiating - and perhaps some "focus group" study or something had suggested three turns as a trainee was some kind of barrier.

For NaFenn and myself, on only our second time out as flaggies, we got put in charge of a flag point because they were reeeeeeeeeeally short staffed that day. I ran FP7 at the exit from the basin for all of qualifying by myself, and the Safety Car dropped out someone who had been press-ganged into filling the second spot before race one.

In all honesty, I felt like I'd been dropped in the deep end a little bit - but also relatively confident that I could handle it. Radio procedures weren't an issue, and I had a pretty good training session on my previous time out.

I certainly think as a relative newbie myself that one turn as a trainee does seem a little short. But I don't know enough about how things work yet to be able to give constructive feedback to anyone.

Yep I suspect that all the groups of officials would have something similar in place - if they really don't think you're suited, they need to have some way of either sending you for more training or mentoring, or diplomatically suggesting that you think of something different to do ;)
