Hmmm, from the above, I'm regretting having posted this request on this forum
and perhaps should have contacted RFDS directly.
Just to put worried people at rest;
- Our club
has had a license for several commercial HF frequencies for several decades, and pays a lot of money each year for the privelege. This includes an RFDS outpost license. We do have to share these frequencies with other commercial users; ie, they are not exclusive to our club
- Yes, several members not only have the programming ability to modify these sets, but have the qualifications and test equipment to set them up.
- Yes, we know all about night time and daytime frequencies.
- Yes, we have a full list of RFDS frequencies.
- We rarely use RFDS, but fit the channels coz we have a license to do so and it's useful in an emergency.
- Just because we are technically competent in radio communications does not mean that we are necessarily conversant with current RFDS usage.
So re-stating the question:
We have about 6 channels left in the set which we intend to use for RFDS, so we cannot obviously use all the current channels they service. With a leaning to WA-useage, including the CSR, what, in members' experience, would be the best 6 channels to use for daytime use, given that a lot of the RFDS channels get little use these day.
And does anyone still use the RFDS chat channel 2020Khz these days?
