Hi,

This is a link to the 2004-2005 Uniden Australian Scanner Frequencies List.

http://www.uniden.com.au/v3/search_page.htm

I got a CD copy of this when I bought my scanner last year and have found it really useful in finding local freq's etc, looks like they have it online too!
Hopefully this helps ya. :)

When it comes to frequency guides if you buy a printed book there is bound to be a lot of information that is out of date by the time it hits the shelves. This is simply because it takes so long to get data off a CD, modify it, put it in a printable format, send it off to the publishers and then distribute it.

Unfortunately something like a CD is the same. Once data is cut to the CD it immeditely starts to go out of date. I'm also reasonably sure the Uniden Online database is just the same data as the CD and not updated very often (if at all).

For online databases you really can't go past the ACMA database available at
http://web.acma.gov.au/pls/radcom/regis ... .main_page
This database is updated at least daily, and often hourly so the information is very up to date.

Regards,

This is probably the best topic to mention this in as well. As well as using a CD Rom, or an online scanner guide to find frequencies, one of the best ways to find a frequency is to get out there amongst the radios and have a look around. Learn what different sized antennas mean for different frequency bands. What makes things even easier quite often is to get a small tool called an Opto Electronics Scout which picks up nearby frequencies.

All the new Uniden scanners are also now being released with Close Call which works in much the same way as the Scout and are pretty good when it comes to frequency sniffing.

Regards,

Yes, the close call feature works a treat. I have a Uniden UBC72XLT and usually have the close call running in the background.

The files that are available from here are usually PDFs.

You'll need the Adobe Reader program to be able to open and print them.

Adobe Reader can be downloaded from here

Here are your Instructions
And no those frequencies in my previously supplied link are not old...they are the licensed frequencies in your area and are up to date. You have 200 available channels on your scanner...just keep entering ones from the database and I am sure you will start to hear things.
Try these WAPOL channels , they are the local area channels for Bunbury: channel 10 - 468.075mhz , channel 14 - 468.175mhz .
