119.700 is registered as a frequency at Pearce. (LINK)

127.900 is registered to Cunderdin Airport (LINK) (the list said 127.900 not 129.700 - the latter is registered to a company at Perth Airport...)

I can't remember where 119.7 came from but it was on my list from last year. 127.9 was used last year by aircraft in the "zone," which I assume to be a special bit of airspace specifically for the event. It was also used for the same purpose in the Red Bull Air Race.

Hi Richard and all with a digital scanner!
Yep, I have been scanning for digital transmissions this morning. I have so far found the following, some of which were police channels used during New Year's Eve celebrations:

465.2500 (some unencrypted P25 transmissions - "....Command" and also "...confirm your location" were heard)
465.5750 (some unencrypted P25 transmissions)
466.1500
467.1500
467.6250
469.4000

Most transmissions have been encrypted, with the occasional P25 unencrypted slipping through. I too am under the impression that these frequencies are currently being "set-up" or checked. There was quite a few transmissions happening between 09.30 and 10hrs. After 10hrs they have been fairly quiet.

Who knows? Maybe as crowds build up and foot patrols begin their shift we may start to hear more unencrypted transmissions. Fingers crossed.

I'll report back later when I have more....

Update:

465.5750 - heard "Forrest Street Command", P25 unencrypted.

Looks like a command post has been set up around Forrest Street (South Perth), off Mill Point Road (???)
Mixture of encrypted and unencrypted......

Well good to see WAPOL alive again for a change!!

P25 is coming in nice and clear.

Looks like they have activated an Analog FM channel.

468.725

Replicating some of the P25 transmissions.

Old channel 36 for those playing at home, and any idea how much info is on that replication and what location it might be?

They might've relinked the analogue channel because they could have run out of digital portables (those things can't be cheap...) Still a nice Australia day gift from VKI to WARSUG :-)

Sitting near the supreme court gardens... As you'd expect there's people EVERYWHERE but the crowds seem to be well behaved.

Just confirming for those with a digital scanner, the following digital channels were quite busy,

465.2500
465.5750
466.1500
467.1500
467.6250
469.4000

All channels are a combination of encrypted and unencrypted P25. Still, the unencrypted P25 transmissions coming in loud and crystal clear!! Channels seem to be getting busier now (21hrs) that the Skyworks are over....

right, digital handhelds aren't cheap - but there are two costs involved! One cost is the digital handheld, the other cost is the licence to operate/use the encryption! Both not cheap.

I am from S.A. and the S.A. police are on the G.R.N (Government Radio Network) with digital + encryption. Many other government departments over in S.A. are moving onto the GRN and going digital (unencrypted) because of the audio quality. (e.g. buses & trams).
However, I heard last year that the encryption licence renewal for SAPOL was being reviewed because of the cost involved (big $$$). Perhaps only going encrypted for certain channels. But I have heard nothing since....

Anyway, the point being is digital + encryption is not cheap. My understanding is that encryption needs to be paid for for each licence, similar to proprietry software on your computer. But I guess our governments are prepared to pay for it....

Anyone else know more on the licencing of the encryption from Motorola and costs?
