Gold Coast freqs have gone quiet.

QPS channels on the Gold Coast have gone very quiet for me.
Has the digital encryption changeover finally happened ?

Hmm quite possibly, although I am not 100% sure about Gold Coast regions. I'm currently listening to VKR Logan and have been expecting them to change any time for a while now. Bit of a sad realisation...

I can confirm that QPS GOLD COAST are still on analogue this morning,

And I have not come across any digital encrypted job channels yet, just the occasional encrypted transmission .

Definitely a nail in the coffin for my Broadcastify stream. I might have jump over to a QAS Freq to please the masses

I doubt Gold Coast will be switching for the g20 , but they will eventually change over to encrypted P25.

Some of the coast had limited capacity coverage for G20 but the whole network will be functional next year, same with Brisbane
