Hi all,

Just finished installing a Uniden UH 013 into my car. The instructions are not that clear (I have never used a CB). Any suggestions on how to listen into the emergency channels ?

Any other tips regarding this radio would also be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You need to get the emergency channels programmed into the radio, they dont come standard with the unit.

Then you just change to channel 41-50.

No idea.

Dont see why not as you cant transmit on those channels only listen.

maybe contact the cops and ask them. not that they would have a clue.

If it was illegal, would the shops install the channels?

Probably not, if you go to a reputable place and not a back yarder.
The Department of Communications can probably advise here.

If you do get caught with or using illegal channels, the fines are quite steep and the equipment will be confiscated.
Emergency channels in a UHF radio are only of limited use anyway.
HF is the way to go, they are standard channels in most HF radios

George.

Dont know if your first post was for me, but Telstat are one of the most reputable places in Victoria/Aussie for Radio Comms.
G&C Comms in Cranny also do it, as do lots of reputable places. $10-20 depending who you see.

They run the comms for Outback Challange and all, they will do the Extra channels for you.

Found out tonight that

"... its illegal to act on anything heard, or Disclose anything, but fine to listen to, in Vic".

no probs for nsw in listening to any frequency however on uh 13 u can only tune into 400-512 meg which will cover most emergency channels including rfs which i have programmed into as i am in rfs but as i say u can only listen in to them as radio wont let u doany more, it is a pretty good radio but make sure u have a good aireal go to the uniden web site for their manual as the one it comes with is pretty pis poor but the best way to learn is to fiddle ur self
