City CAT

Post by Bonez » Mon Apr 14, 2008 10:38 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know the frequencies for the Perth city CAT services?

I travelled on them daily last week and noticed they all are fitted out with standard Icom IC400-PRO radios. I was catching the Red Cat and all I could see on the screen was something similar to "CDD-CH07"

Obviously if they are using 400pro's then they must be operating somewhere between 450 and 500mhz.

Would be interested in having a listen... no doubt they are using some kind of low powered commercial repeater in the city somewhere. I noticed that in some areas where large buildings got in the way the signal went a bit fuzzy. Some drivers had the volume turned up quite loud while others didn't.

Cheers
Bonez

Im a bit confused here and can someonw help me please!

How would you know what frequencie you get for certain trains? Would you just listen to the channel which is in the area you are at? And when do they say the train numbers on the scanners on the channel your listening on?

His bedside manner was not nice and very condescending towards the officers - maybe he needs stressbusters.

VHF is still used on some of the branch lines in the country, such as the wheatbelt and the GSR from Northam to Albany. Sometimes the crews used to get train orders over CDMA phones, I assume these have been upgraded to 3G.
