Frequencies list

Post by OzPrepper » Tue Apr 05, 2016 5:28 pm

Hello All

I will be studying for my Foundation licence shortly and purchased a radio so I can listen in to get a better idea on how it all works and wondered if anyone has a list of frequencies I can program into the radio on the 2m and 70cm bands.

The last time I used a CB was back in the 80's so it's all very new to me which is why I will be going for my licence, I have managed to program in the 80 UHF channels I am just a little confused in finding the other bands.

I won't be transmitting in case anyone asks as I know that is illegal until I actually have a licence.

Take a look at the vk6.net website, there's all kinds of info on there.

Perhaps start with the repeater listing and put some of those in. Depending on the repeater and the time of day you could hear some stuff on any that are close-ish to you.

Thanks for the reply, being about three hours from Perth and about an hour inland from the coast it doesn't give me too many options with the repeaters until I can afford a decent antenna but will give it a go. :)

That may be a limiting factor, yes :)

Thanks.

I actually looked at Amazon but never realised they posted to Australia, learn something new everyday.

I looked at these antenna on eBay as well but I believe they are the fake Nagoya.

After doing some research the real ones now have silver writing and the lettering is different, I also heard the TX/RX is of lower quality but maybe I am reading into it all too much.

For a $7 item you are over complicating things.Buy it try it if it doesnt work you havent broken the bank.Amateur radio is only as complicated as 1 makes it.If it was BIG $$$$$ item then be cautious.
