Hello, can anyone tell me if i can use the CB, that i brought from the UK to OZ??
They do seem to share the same freq, its a 40ch
uhf.
Any help would be great, thanks.

Also i have GME TX 6200 handheld, which just got a car mounted whip for, but it seems to only last about 40 mins talk time on the battery, do i need to power this whip? or will my 12 volt charger for the handset power it???

I know this might seem dumb but we all have to start.

ND you will need to provide some information and you can test it yourself too. Have you tested the undescribed UHF with the GME handheld to see they transmit and receive with one another. Assuming they do, yes of course. If they don't, well your options are open as to where to put it or send it.

Has your charger been tried yet to power the GME set? As they are a 5 watt set I expect the talk time would be short unless you have a more powerul battery. It may have a low power switch on it.
Cheers,

40 mins talk time is a fair bit, I would say thats about the same for my 6200, its got about 18hrs listen time tho and the antenna woudnt make a difference to the power usage. As John said above check the UK UHF with the GME surely that occurred to you?

As far as I recall, sometime in the 90's, the UK CB system went to 40 Ch 27 MHz HF FM.
Thus it is incompatible with our 40 Ch UHF 477 MHz FM system & our 27 MHz HF AM/SSB system.
The only UHF system that the UK had was a 934 ?? MHz system with only 20 channels.
Hope this helps.

Thanks guys for the help, it did occur to me to try them against each other, but fear of bring down an airliner or some such thing stopped me, but i ll give it a go.
It is a late 90,s model so i think it might be fm.
As for the power thing it looks like i ll have to get the power bracket for it.
Thanks again.

and to just chuck in an aside to the subject ..... I did see somewhere that Oz is the only country to use UHF as a CB (with the HF also) - UHF in all other places must be licenced use only.
