I have a Uniden Sundowner UHF radio and I am aware of the radio chatter channels but I was wondering if anyone could supply information on which repeater stations can be accessed from anywhere in the country, particularly Nth. Qld.
Or is there a way of searching them out using the radio.
Does anyone put out a list of areas covered by repeaters. Thanks Kev

I have a list of all licensed repeaters on my website compiled from the ACA database, but not all of these repeaters are actually in use. The URL is http://www.tropinet.com/radio/repeaters.html

In Eastern FNQ there is Channel 1 in Innisfail, Channel 3 is SW of Atherton, and Channel 7 near Mareeba and I think there is a channel 6 repeater near Cardwell.

Thanks Nigel,
Ill look this up as soon as I finish here.
You seem fairly knowledgeable about Nth Qld. Do you have any information on Cape Melville especially the east coast road, Cooktown to Bathurst Bay.

Kev,I response to the number of questions that we have been receiving about the repeater bases for UHF in Australia you will now find that ExplorOz.com has a full listing of every one that is currently regsitered. Have a look at UHF Repeaters. Thanks must go to Nigel of the VKS 737 Cairns base for providing the input file for the list.

To find a repeater just press the PTT on a repeater channel and listen for the extra feedback from the repeater. As far as the road from Cooktown to Bathurst Bay... I havent heard of anyone having gone up that road yet since the wet. Other parts of the cape are restricted to vehicles with a winch, so I would expect the east coast road, which is traditionally not as easy as the main roads, to be pretty rough going.

With regard to your question about VKS737, You can find all the details on www.vks737.on.net - the official name is the Australian National 4WD Radio Network, and it is a network for people with a HF Radio (we have 5 frequencies between
3 and 14 MHz). Cheers Nigel
