A have to agree with Gavin as well on that one. When I read you stating "100% legal because my mate is a VK6 operator and this how you can QSO around the world" I almost fell off my chair.

Even if the Prime Minister setup a repeater on a non designated 1-8 channel and not registered, its still an illegal act.

This is run by my mate and it is 100% legal because my mate is a VK6 operator and this how you can QSO around the world anyone who does not conforms to the rules is muted by the owner of the gateway incidentally one has be setup in Kunnurra so if you get the software and register your callsign your on the air.
The mate who owns the repeater is Russ and he is on 17 UHF CB

Hiighly illegal. This form of Packet does not conform with the LCD's set by ACMA. The only form of Telemetry available to CBRS users is on Ch22/23 to control apparatus - not speech...

The old saying "One day your going to get caught..." springs to mind for some reason :lol:

Carry on boys - not long till the RI comes knockin!

Was listening to 18 last night. Pretty interesting, does sound to be VOIP being rebroadcasted on UHF, and then incoming UHF being broadcasted back through VOIP.

Im not trying to cause conjecture or start an argument or anything Im just telling you exactly what happened. The facts are....

I phoned up the ACMA and asked to speak to someone in regards to UHF CB regulations and asked them about the whole gateway issue, and the officer I spoke to who's name I wont publish stated:

"The ACMA is aware of its existance but can not find any grounds to take any action at present and wont take any action until further legislation comes into effect to the contrary."

So it would appear it is NOT "Highly Illegal" :roll:

To listen to RFDS Base Frequencies, at Jandakot, you would need a UHF receiver, is that right and an aerial too ???

I can also confirm what vk6hsv said. I also had email contact with a Perth based ACMA radio inspector and they told me the exact same story.

If ACMA read their own documents they would see that:
http://www.wia.org.au/members/legislati ... 5B1%5D.pdf



5 Class Licence

station that:
(a) directly transmits speech to, or audio tones to initiate communication
with, another CB station:

Depends how you want to go about "directly". If they mean, the frequency leaves one antenna and is received by another, then no, internet doesn't count.
