Hi all,

I spent a week in the beautiful country of Australia and stopped at Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney during the month of December. Below are some of the frequency logs I have captured and verified via ACMA. I am holding off on submitting the Zeon network information to the DB since I understand it is about to be shutdown (if it hasn't already) by Motorola Solutions and be converted over to ORION network. Anyway the information is here for historical purposes.

Here are some notable findings:
The new Sydney Light Rail L2 is operating on a TETRA system in UHF band. It seems like two sites are active. very heavy usage of data and SDS messaging (probably for onboard telemetry). Limited voice comms. Mixed of Sepura and Motorola handsets

Crown Casino Melbourne is operating a three carrier TETRA system in 800 MHz band.

The Zeon network at Sydney still has a number of active users on all sites, especially LA 2. The Zeon network at Melbourne are all quiet with no traffic.

Zeon is alive and kicking around the country, the end of 2019 must of been to ambitious deadline for mother M for shutdown ,

Many new Orion site frequencies have been licensed but a majority are not active / in use as yet.

And I guess the virus didn't help business
