I have been picking up repeater signals on CH7 a few times in the last couple of weeks. Revertive only, no conversation.

This has been from the mobile, short arial mounted on the roof, so could not have been too far away. From memory was on McIntrye Rd. Modbury North.

As far as I know there is only CH1 & 3 in the metro area.

Does anyone know if there is a new repeater installed in the general area.

I dont understand the Q chn 7 is a repeater channel and is often picked up by me travelling with repeater opening tones from nearby stations. Mt monger from memory is one. It should come as no surprise thaqt someone is using it

I think there is a channel 7 repeater on Yorke Peninsula. I often get it from Port Lincoln.

Michael,
Thanks for your response. Just that This is the first time that I have picked it up in the area, so wondered if a new one had been installed nearby.

Thanks.

Russ.

Often while driving around Melbourne in scan I will pick up conversations between guys sitting at home talking on UHF base stations - have heard one guy giving detailed instructions to a teenager before on how to set up your "own" repeater station, and another guy talking about one he had set up. Basically just a pair of off-the-shelf UHF radios linked together, receiving on one channel and broadcasting on another, presumably using a line in/line out to connect?

I would understand that technically they are illegal?

Thanks, may be that is the answer, it was a pretty strong signal.

This is not an answer to your question, but why on earth would you want to listen o the garbage and trash talk by brain dead morons that inhabit the uhf chanels in metro Adelaide? I have plums growing on my tree at the moment with more brains. Sorry, but some have mentioned higher wattage and illegal repeaters, but what about the trash talk in contravention of legislation???

Just paid for my new UHF today and it will be fitted next Tue so I'm new to this. Is there any channel in Adelaide used by non-morons or will I have to wait 'till I get out to the bush?

D-Jack,
"why on earth would you want to listen o the garbage and trash talk by brain dead morons that inhabit the uhf chanels in metro Adelaide? "

Didnt say that I did, but I have and they along with ch 40 are not selected, hence a surprise when I picked up a strong signal on ch7 in the Adel metro area.

You are correct though.

Regards

Channel 7 Repeater is here in the Clare. Depending where you are at the time and the type on antenna, it is possible to get it very easy in Adelaide. The top part of Brighton Road from Seacliff I and talk to people back home in Clare
