It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

Hi all

In a few weeks time I am taking a holiday in Tasmania. The ferry crossing is approx 8hrs. My loving wife has allowed me a radio allocation which makes me very happy.

I've been searching and wondering if there is any details on the frequencies used by the crew and staff on The Spirit of Tasmania.

I already have the standard marine and port authority frequencies but would appreciate any assistance

Thank you
