467.6875 might be command 2 if Mandurah are using it instead of FRS 2 because perhaps FRS 1 and FRS 2 were renamed to Command 1 and Command 2 ?

That would make sense.

Head traffic today on 467.7875. Pump to tanker asking for a DBA status.
I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest this is the "Command 1" channel then.

Listening to a HAZMAT event where I can hear the simplex traffic and sitrep mentions they're using Command 2.

467.7125 is Command 2

mandurah FRS just referred to 467.6875 as channel 215 but no simplex number was mentioned.
but going by what is posted above i guess its simplex 5.

Cool. Added to the top post. The random allocation looks like that the channel numbers don't align in any way to frequencies so we're only going to be able to map the freqs to channels by listening to each for mention of the channel number (sigh)

i don't know if anyone has come across this info regarding the DFES to transition UHF radio channels.
if not is a very interesting read.

Last night I heard a scratchy but mostly readable transmission on 467.9875 with a voice saying they were testing BA Alpha on channel 200. Added to the master list on the first post.

If we know all the channel names and numbers, maybe we can use that as the basis of assigning frequencies to each one as we discover them.
