• 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:

For sale these look good are they ?

If memory serves me, CB in Australia is on the UHF band, not on 27 mhz as it is here in the States (any Aussies here who can correct me?).

That being said, I wouldn't even begin to consider something like this unless I saw it first. No way I would bid on something like this blind. best regards..Mike

I think just from the description that it would definitely be worth going to look at it (if you're with in reasonable distance). All 'good deals' have a 'catch' to them somewhere. For me, the 'catch' would be shipping the thing to the USA! LOL

aussie cb is fm 5 watts, repeatears allowed, and located near 477 mhz area last i heard. its what our cb here should have been. usa cb should have never been put near 27mhz in am mode totally defeats the purpose of the service, now vhf murs has come real close to what usa cb should have been. but it should have been 5 watts with bases, mobiles, and ht's no limitation on antennas, digital should be allowed although i think it may be on murs, and use of part 90 radios that are capable of meeting the technical requirements should be allowed as well.

but the usa telecom authority the fcc has been screwed up for so long that we are beyond the point of correcting any of this stuff.

Looks to me like a Hygain Hytower *FOR HF*, not for UHF. That is not an antenna on top of the tower, the whole thing is the antenna.
