New DFES UHF channels discussion

Post by vk6hgr » Thu Jul 20, 2017 2:57 pm

We've been discussing the new DFES/SES/WAERN channels in a couple of different threads now so I've created this one for the new DFES UHF channels specifically. Discussion on new metro VHF channels should go in the frequencies or SES VHF threads.

Searches in the ACMA database will only give the frequency, of course, not the channel. This is what I've found so far from ACMA which is almost certainly not complete or correct. Listen on these frequencies for any reference to the channel and post it in this thread, as well as any others you discover.

WA-wide simplex freqs:

457.5750
457.5875
457.6875 - Channel 214 Simplex 4
457.7125 - Channel 216 Simplex 6
457.7375
457.7875
457.9875
467.5375
467.5750 - Channel 211 Simplex 1
467.5875
467.6875
467.7125
467.7375
467.7875 - Pump to tanker
467.9875


UHF repeaters (metro: Lots of country UHF added also)

467.9875 365 Wellington St Perth (Western Power builidng)
467.9375 365 Wellington St Perth (Western Power builidng)
469.4875 Dumas House CBD Repeater 1

Portable repeater pairs

458.0375 RX / 468.0375 TX
458.0875 RX / 468.0875 TX

Very close to the existing ESA/ESB channels so maybe frequency re-use..?

They are most probably the frequencies for ESC and ESD

I've added these freqs to the DFES stream. I'm hearing the sort of simplex traffic that used to be on FRS 2. (Don't know the actual frequency triggered, yet)

Yep. Right hand is UHF, which used to be SES and some other miscellaneous stuff; now it's programmed with these channels. Left hand is still VHF (mid and high band incident channels, including simplex) but it's in "winter mode" at the moment so it also carries the audio from 6AR.

No, it does. The right hand audio is only the new frequencies. I just don't know what and how they're being used, which is what we're attempting to discover.
