Is there somewhere with all the terminology?

Turn out means there is a fire or an incident of some description. The turn-out system is what they use in the station too turn them out of the station and get them responding.

Somebody might be able too explain it a little bit better :mrgreen:

The turnout system is how appliances get dispatched to an incident when in station.

Some regions its done over seperate radio channels (South East and Brisbane), main Firecom channel (South West) and land lines (others)

To clear up any confusion. Turnout or Turning Out is the "act of doing something" so a fire appliance will "turnout" to an incident. And therefore you have the turnout system.

Just wondering what ppl in the Caloundr area listen too?

I have tried that freq list for the Caloundra area above but hear nothing. I can monitor some of the other freq listed above for the S/Coast area.

Instead 457.800Mhz booms in for all coms for me here?? However I thought that it was the reverse (uplink) of 467.300Mhz??????

Anyone know what freq QFRS use for the Caloundra area?

That confuses me.

Try;

Channel 24 - 467.3500
Channel 27 - 467.6750
Channel 32 - 465.5000
Channel 33 - 467.3000 (Actually don't try that coz that doesn't work)

That's just one voting group.

Hey Stretch,

Channel 24 - 467.3500 - I can hear traffic on this
Channel 27 - 467.6750 - I can hear traffic on this
Channel 32 - 465.5000 - Haven't tried this one
Channel 33 - 467.3000 (Actually don't try that coz that doesn't work) - works fine here??

Whenever I drive past the Kawana Fire Station with my 72XLT on Close Call it always locks onto 457.800Mhz go figure.

Sorry. From the above post I got the impression that 457.8 worked but 467.3000 didn't.

That would be because Kawana is the comms centre and they transmit on 457.8000 coz thats the uplink for the repeater.

According to google maps 8kms.

What I was trying to get at before though was that I can hear all traffic on 457.800Mhz as if it was the output of the repeater not the uplink. I can monitor say 467.350Mhz or 467.675Mhz on the handheld and then on the 780XLT hear both sides of ever conversation on 457.800Mhz.

It's no problem for me as the signal is awesome just wondered why it worked :shock:
