UHF CB repeaters

Post by vk6hgr » Tue May 30, 2006 2:03 pm

These are the rules for licensing of UHF CB repeaters. (Easier to put it here than trying to find it all the time 8) )

Interesting that repeaters are limited to an EIRP power of 21W (EIRP power takes into account antenna gain)

Hi Gohie,

If I understand what you're saying, then no it's not possible.

You'll notice from this page here that 6IP's frequencies are in the 78MHz range, more or less.

UHF CB is in the 476MHz range, so a UHF CB radio is tuned to frequencies a long way away from FESA's 6IP.

You may be able to get a UHF CB radio that doubles as a scanner and receive the 6IP frequencies that way, but all the ones I've seen don't scan down that low, they only scan frequencies in the 450-500MHz range...

How would I go about using the duplex channels on my Baofeng, I can't figure out what the input and output frequency is.

Firstly the Baofeng is not type class rated to transmit on Australian CB.

Secondly, this is a reason you need to have the appropriate license to handle this product. If you don't know what you are doing, what frequencies/offset you should be using, you could accidentally transmit on something you are not meant to.
