I have the 5 VKS737 frequencies (I'm a member of VKS737) what other HF frequencies should I have in my set?---
I am a licenced HF Outpost user.
What frequencies am I licence to have?
The ACA website does not mention anything like that. To search the ACA website frequencies you have to know the frequency first, which is a contradiction by itself.

Very much appreciated If anyone can give me or point out to me to the most current list of Listening HF frequencies and also Transmitting HF frequencies from 2 to 26.5 Mhz for 4WD in very remote areas?

This question came about because someone in the Gulf asked me if I had the 5145 MHz frequency.
I did NOT have it ( This is the standard RFDS frequency for Cairns).

After further checks on the frequencies installed in my HF set, I realised that
the company who installed my frequencies left many Listening and Transmitting frequencies out.
( a slack job).
I bought my 9323 Codan brand new in 2001.
Many listening and transmitting frequencies like RFDS, Weather, Weather fax reception etc. have not been put in in my HF set. mystery or slack???

My HF set can store up to 400 frequencies.
If anyone knows of any HF frequency or frequency list please contact me directly on j88cj@yahoo.com.au

Hi Guy,
I am sending you a map of the various frequencies to your email address. When, I do not know as my server Bigpond seems to be off line here in SA this morning. Maybe it is too cold for emails :-)

Cheers, Willem

I recently bought a Barret 950 HF Radio and paid $69 to have all the frequencies programmed and set up. It receives everything from Radio Beijing to the aircraft and even all the 27MHz CB radio channels. Electric Bug in Adelaide did it.

Hi Phil,
I bet you can only use your 27MHz frequencies for listening and not transmittingKing Edward River, Mitchell Plateau

George,

I haven't ad the need to use the 27MHz CB frequencies, but according to the info provided, they transmit and receive. The output has of course been reduced to 5 watt on those frequencies.

Guy,
You should be able to go back to the company that sold and installed the HF Radio for you.
They should have a list of all the most used frequencies that you are likely to need.
It is a 5 minute job for them to program the frequencies you require into your set.
They will charge you for this, probably around $60-80

Hope this helpsKing Edward River, Mitchell Plateau

Hello everyone.
A part from Willem, no one has answered my question. Thanks Willem

Just like me you are relying on what your installer is installing.

So, like me you do not know what frequencies are programmed in your HF set.

Why should I receive radio Bejing or radio London or some rubbish like that which has no insterest in the Australia when I go 4WDriving.
No offence, but I am still wating for more informations.

Guy, I have a Barrett 550R with autotune antena and it has all the RFDS frequencies. You can get a full listing of all the RFDS frequencies, by base, on the RFDS website at http://www.rfds.org.au/ . I would suggest that you get all of these programmed into your set. The Cairns RFDS freq 5.145 and 7.465 and Mt Isa 5.110 and Alice Springs 6.950 are my favourites. Most of Cape York is easy covered with these.

My radio also has all the Telstra Radfone frequencies, however these are of no use any more. Also has all the 27 Mhz LSB/AM/USB channels (including the now defunct 27.195 and 27.095) and the 27 Mhz marine (AM) channels. Phil G suggested that these are only receive - WRONG - mine are rx/tx capable.

Another item worth mentioning is if you don't have an autotune antena, then it is imperative that your multi-tap whip also has the frequencies. Not much use if they are in the radio and the aerial doesn't have them!

I will email you the list (to printout) and a copy of the data file which I prepared for my 9323 a couple of months ago.
It is now in about 5 of the mates radios as well.
For my application it has the Radtel frequencies as well, to use this you need to pay up and get another selcall number.

Regards
Jim
