Police frequencies are in the 163MHz area, we only have a very
limited selection of country frequencies, so if you have any that
we could add please e-mail them to us.
Also just note that M district (Ballarat, Horsham) have UHF repeaters on Mt. Buninyong & Mt. Macedon, both of which use 468.125MHz, (UHF Channel 12) but they are not always operating.
**Ballarat UHF Link - not operational for over 12 months**
Most larger country cities which operate in the VHF band (163MHz) when using Two local could be using the two local on their SMR radios (161.250) or some larger cities have UHF radios in their vehicles an could be using UHF two local (467.875MHz)
June '00, I have been told that "Communications 633"
was heard on M1 district doing a great amount of radio checks. It
also seems that the UHF link has been switched off.
Police In Morwell as well as
Ballarat Are Using UHF 2 Local
Which is 467.875
- Two Local is 161.250MHz
This combined with One local can be used whenever
the unit is operations a SMR radio. (VHF).
The network that the police in country victoria use as their primary means of communications is the SMR Network, which was installed by Telstra. This also allows members to make telephone calls, which are limited to 5 minutes & radio to radio calls are limited to 3 minutes. They are also able to receive calls from normal telephones.
< Note radio to telephone, telephone to radio, and radio to radio calls, do not use the frequencies below, these calls are able to be heard bouncing off one of the closest of over 140 sites in Victoria. >
Thanks to those people who send me the frequencies and information for this site.
