Default Supercars 2017 Race Frequencies

Hi all,

Firstly, I wasn't quite sure what category to place this under so moderators, please move to appropriate section if required.

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can locate the team radio frequencies for the Australian Supercars (aka V8 Supercars) for events this year? Once upon a time they use to have it on their website but now it appears not.

I can only seem to find frequencies from 2015 or even earlier doing Google searches

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

G'day, last weekend at Winton they started at 500.325 through to about 501.200. I used dsd+ to decode the NXDN. Hope that helps you.

Thanks SDR,

Not sure what the whole dsd+ and NXDN means but I appreciate your help.

I have a Uniden UBCD436-PT so I should be able to pick these frequencies up yeah?

Freqs won't be an issue, the teams are running digital Kenwood radios, so if your UBCD436-PT decodes NXDN you will right to go. Otherwise you will need a decoder setup (DSD+).

You'll need a Whistler TRX, an AOR DV-1 or a tapped scanner/sdr radio with DSD+ to decode NXDN.

Ok, again, too much jargon and mumbo-jumbo there...

Google is likely to be your friend here......

Supercars use a digital radio system called NXDN. It's provided by Kenwood. They make radios. To listen to NXDN, you need a specific type of scanner. Whistler offer two scanners - the TRX1 and TRX 2 that decode NXDN. AOR make the other type of NXDN capable scanner called the DV-1. Based on your response the DSD+:method is likely to be way beyond your technical abilities. In saying that, I wouldnt recommend any of the above scanners for a novice. Your uniden doesn't decode NXDN.
