• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Noticed today that your submissions have been posted, and see you've posted some old QFRS Codes.

The Codes are spoken as 'Code 9' etc., the K is no longer used.

The correct definition for the A and C of Code 9 is:-

A = Casualty Alive
C = Casualty Deceased.

Code 12 is now 'Avoidable False Alarm'.

There are no codes between 12 and 20.

And even though it is not on the Official list. Code 50 is used to indicate that the appliance is back in the Station, or Returned to Station.

I submitted some QFRS stuff a couple of months back, and I'm still waiting for it to be posted, and I only had 160 submissions in front of me. Apart from saying that Channel 40 is the Wallangarra frequency, I can't remember what else was in my submission.

No. Keep submitting. No one individual can find everything, and besides not everyone has the same scanning interest.

Ps. Havent got a trunk tracker at the moment. I hope to get back up to speed soon in that area .
If you have two scanners, one of which is controllable by a PC (such as the BC780XLT), there are software packages which will allow you to emulate a form of trunk tracking for some of the trunking protocols, such as Motorola, EDACS, and MPT1327.

There are 800 MHz Motorola systems on Mt Coottha, Wilkes Knob, and at Eagle Farm, that may be able to be received from your area - use one of the Trunker variants, or UniTrunker from this site.

There are also VHF and/or UHF MPT1327 systems on MT Coottha, Wilkes/Bald Knobs, and Ocean View - use TrunkView (www.linato.net/trunkview). You only need one scanner ( PC controllable) with this program.

Ps Comint where's Wallangarra . SW QLD ? Name rings a bell can't place it .
It is on the Qld/NSW border on the New England Highway, south of Stanthorpe. The actual repeater site is on Mt Mackenzie, which is South-West of Tenterfield.

Whether it is SE or SW Qld, depends on the circumstances. A lot of organisations, including Government departments, consider Goondoowindi and any place East to be SE Qld. However, when the Government is handing out money, SE Qld seems to start around Gatton. In this case, Wallangarra comes under Firecom South-West.

Gday comint Thanks for your encourgement to submit ,I will try to keep it as correct as possible . Also thanks for the infomation on sites i can receive all those sites from my location in Redcliffe . My scanners are older as i have just got back into scanning as i have time now unable to work . So i am looking at buying the uniden ubct-8 or possibly the ubcd996t ,unsure if it is worth the extra money at the moment for the extra modes .
Yes i rember where Wallangarra is now ,I was at warwick 3 months ago looking at houses i was thinking of moveing there to live .
Yep the goverment is a bit like that when it comes to paying for services in rural areas, services in the roma area are going down a bit too .
Thanks again for the advice and info ,good chatting with you .cheers
PS , I haven't visited Stanthorpe yet, probably in the next 12 months .

Click on Database at the top of this Forum, and work your way down from there.

I see you are a member, and depending on how you set up your profiles, it may open on the USA page (which you can easily change from), or it may open directly into the Australia page. You then select New South Wales, and you're on your way.

Comint.

Great I found the list of frequencies, but now can any body assist me with programing my Uniden UBCD996T scanner to pick up the NSW FB and Police? I have set to Motorola Type2/P25 but not sure to set site to 800MHZ or UHF??


cheers....

Go to:

http://scannsw.aesvn.org/

You will find instructions there (plus frequencies for the Central Coast as there are several sites due to the hilly terrain)
You need to enter 3 base offsets
It is important that they are done in frequency order otherwise it won't work

Base Freq 1 413.100 12.5 space Ch 723 Offset
Base Freq 2 415.000 12.5 space Ch 748 Offset
Base Freq 3 415.575 12.5 space Ch 380 Offset

It is simply the way it works (don't try to understand it).
Follow the instructions in scannsw and you should be successful

The frequencies listed on the ScanNSW site may be out of date a bit on some sites, due to the current GRN upgrade, which should be finished by the end of htis year hopefully. I will then update the stuff ont he ScanNSW site.

But the base and offset setting for the gRN apply for any scanner that allows you to put in 3 base and offsets ranges, including the 996.
If you go to the Uniden Australia web site and download the 996 software there, it comes with a system file already to go for the NSW GRN. Just add your TGs which can be found on the ScanNSW site and your away, or search to your hearts content and find stuff not listed. Its up to you. Thats the fun of scanning.
