I believe ESC and ESD are owned by DFES so probably best to try them ones first thats why they are using them now

Does anyone know the frequency for channel 354? There was a 2nd alarm fire in Mandurah and they switched to that channel and I couldn't find the frequency.

"ES-C is 469.4375MHz"

Just wondering if this signal was analog or digital as the ACMA website list the frequency against another Agency and with a digital emission designator.

I note that there are 3 other simplex frequencies attached to that license number - maybe one is ES-D.

Thanks in advance.

My guess is it would be air to air or some sort of communication with Jandakot ATC.

Edit: Who did they communicate with?

Big hole in the ground, usually with more than one entrance ;)

It's for things like the Northbridge Tunnel so crews inside can talk to crews outside and vice versa.

It is very dark.
