Like any HF network, you need to be licenced to use the frequencies of that network. Contact the Radtel HF Radio Network, join them and they will give you the frequencies the Beacon and Selcal numbers for police australia wide.

Hi Fred B, what part of my question gave you the impression that I was not licensed and not a member of both VKS 737 and the HF Radio Club!, also you do not have to be licensed to RX any frequencies only to TX.

cobber as Fred said if you are licensed to the VKS 737 network have a look in you members listing and you will see the selcal number listed for the WA Police and as for what frequency ....what every VKS 737 frequency you can get them on.

Can I ask why you want to know?

Or do you want to know what internal frequency the use for Police to Police comms?

Hi olcoolone, there was a head on crash on the Brand highway (WA) last week and I noticed that the Highway Patrol vehicle was talking on his HF Codan Radio, so I thought that I might listen in on my HF Codan NGT (in free tune) if I had the frequency, I know that I may not have been able to hear the Patrol Vehicle being so close but would have heard the Base.......That is why I would like the main operating frequencies Day/Night

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

It's pretty old, 4 - 5 years at least. That list looks great and has been around for a while but it has gone kind of senile.

Vic CFA and DSE haven't used those frequencies for years. Also RFDS are out of date and some have changed. No ABC Perth or Brisabne for many years and BBC, Radio Australia have shifted some frequencies.

Not sure about WA police though.

Cobber,
You made me look -
selcall
0522 Perth Base Police General Assistance Line - All States
0523 Perth Base WA Police - Eucla ( 07:15 to 16:15 WA Time )
0590 Perth Base WA Police - Wiluna (08:00 to 16:00 Mon-Fri WA time)

for other states base stations the selcall changes to the post code
eg 0722 or 0622 etc.

Cheers,
Bill

"Like any HF network, you need to be licenced to use the frequencies of that network."
- and you certainly won't ever get any Licence to transmit on Police HF frequencies.

BUT in Australia it's legal to listen to radio transmissions (excluding telecommunications services) provided that you don't -
- reveal the existance of any communications
- divulge the contents of any communications
- make use of the information in any communications

In an emergency, you are allowed to transmit on any frequency.
