lost coffs Harbour police

Post by 530xlt » Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:50 pm

Hi does anyone know why i can't pick up police in Coffs Harbour? I was using analog radio and only about 1 to 2 weeks ago it stopped so not shore if they turned off the old repeaters or not.

Frequency change?
Changed to Digital?
Faulty equipment?

Have you looked up the ACMA database to see if the frequency/s you have used in the past are still current?

coffs has been digital for a while but i believe there still had analog repeaters in use and it was only last 2 weeks it has stopped. I can't search the ACMA but will try again on pc at the weekend thanks.

Sounds like they were bridging until all radios were converted over before switching off the analogue
