Hi all the name is Steve and I have a GME TX4500. I use to listen to frequency 468.00 local police channel but they recently changed frequency. Do any members know what frequency they are using now in Charters Towers.

Thanks mate only been here a few hours now but have already learnt a lot. I enjoyed reading the post on upgrading your GME to 80 channel. Very good info as I didn't know you could do that upgrade yourself

Comint I tried to get that frequency in my GME TX4500 it is only good to 2 decimal places. What else can I do? I really need someone with a scanner to check if that frequency is correct. if it is can a radio tech get me that frequency in my set?

Not familiar with the GME radios, but even for 40 channel UHFCB it would need three decimal places, and four decimal places for 80 channel UHFCB.

Have a look here for the QPS frequencies.

See pg18 of the manual.
You might need to set 12.5 steps
It will assist you in installing the frequency into the radio.
Mentions that a frequency such as 468.425 will display as 468.42 - the 5 will not display.
