List of aussies HF channels

Postby DLKE » Sun Jul 31, 2016 10:17 pm

Hello everyone,
here in europe / germany we don't have HF groups like VKS / Radtel / HFoZ and so on. So it's a bit exotic and a little challenge to receive it as HF-DX. As former HF Monitor for Deutsche Welle's measuring and receiving station and as ham OP as well as CW and RTTY OP for German's Air Force the HF spectrum is my home. But with HFoZ i hvn't dealed never and i don't have a complete channel list of them. In the Net i found a hint that they sould have 15 (fifteen) frequencies, but i've found only less than 10 and never i heard some one. So may be the chance would be a bit higher when i would have a complete frequency list. So if some one knowing more pse let me know...
By the way: one of my greatest pleasure on hf was a drive to my qrl from cologne a bit outside the town into an area that we calling "Bergisches Land" - small mountains abt some 100 meters...hi. I was on dialing on 40m, and after a while i became familiar with the english sounding stations: some VK's coming in vy loud - around S9 on my Icom 706 and the 2.8m long hombrew antenna, only for 7 Mhz. And in SSB (most of the time i'am using the cw-part with a little key at the left knee..)

Hi yipyip46, nice list. I have a Codan hf and am a vks737 member, just wondering if you have heard any police hf transmissions at all? I here what sounds like a selcall on various freqs but don't seem to get any voice. Not sure if digital thing or they are just to far for voice to come through. Maybe you have some info on this? Cheers.

police rarely use HF in Australia infact i dont think they even know how to use it!
the only time would be in a national disaster and it would have to be a massive one since phones and internet have taken over the good old days of HF

Good Morning The police do have HF frequencies allocated but with the expanding digital network and sat. comms. they are being used less and less. The selcal you are hearing maybe a beacon. There is some digital voice transmissions on HF now days but it is still in its infancy. You may also be hearing fax transmissions or Wefax transmissions. A lot of the interest in HF has waned over the recent years due to the fact that the people who used to rely on it have moved on to more advanced and more convenient communications. Regards

What you are hearing on those HF frequencies is ALE (Automatic Link Establishment) and yes they do use it from time to time, I have heard NSW Police use it for radio checks and transports.
