Trunking in Toowoomba area

Postby GME Man » Sun Jan 22, 2017 8:16 am

Hi does anyone know if there are any trunking frequencies in the Toowoomba area that are worth while listening to and that are in the 400-MHz range, mainly MPT1327? I believe that there are quite a few of the frequencies in the Toowoomba area, I have managed to find Mt Kynock and Middle Ridge but I would like to find most of the frequencies for Toowoomba. If anyone knows or has a list of the frequencies it would be much appreciated.

Thanks. :D

As far as I know, Mt Kynoch and Gabbinbah (Middle Ridge) are the only UHF MPT1327 sites in the Toowoomba area, and there hasn't been anything worth while listening to, on them, for a number of years. Most previous users, such as RACQ, and Lindsay Transport (Gatton) have gone to other systems, such as Mobile phones, or 3G networks.

It is my understanding, that the Vertel Network (Mt Kynoch, The Knobby, etc) was in the process of changing over to another Trunking Protocol (DMR maybe).

Sorry for the thread necro,

I've just moved to the area and I'm looking to put my Uniden 396 to good use. I've also obtained a RTL-SDR to decode DMR and other types.. If just wondering if there is anything out there?
