The phone number quoted appears to be incorrect, and the useless online white pages can`t find Nambour. Any chance of posting the correct phone number? I have at least two radios that I need modified. Thanks.

Not sure if I posted in this topic but I run a GME TX6200 which is awesome, 5watt. But a lot of it has to do with aerials and I don't see much talked about on that.

I had this beaut on the border run this year but the strain broke it at the base, its a 9db gain. Pic taken east of Port Augusta heading into Horrocks Pass, love that little bit of road.

I now have a similar one to my 4x4 but its a 6.5db and the same length as the larger mob aerial on the RHS side in this pic.

Works for me, use it through a StarCom1 and ptt button by my left thumb.

Our three bike group used the same Uniden radios on the OCR trip, one had a high gain aerial that replaced the standard one, which appeared to improve things a bit.

They were not much use at any distance out past Windorah, which was caused by the actual countryside, I believe. The possiblility of fitting an aerial similar to yours was also discussed.

The main problem we had was with wind noise, especially on the way home. At speeds over 100 Km/h all we could hear was a garbled noise.

PS. If you want to see what Horrocks Pass was like in years gone by, before it was "improved", try the road inland from Port Germein.

Managed to get onto them today, and spoke to the office person, who in turn spoke to Ralph. I was told that it is not possible to increase the power of handhelds, only the in car (fitted) radios.

What he has developed though, is a switch that cuts out wind noise when you wish to speak. He drills a small hole on the side of the helmet, and fits it through there. Cost is $25.00 fitted, and takes about one hour.

Hi Guys

I've been looking around because I want to have some bike to bike communication when on rides but I know jack sh!t about UHF radios. What is the go with the frequencies? Some units are 400-470mhz, 410-480 or 400-480? What do you miss out on specifically with the first two options just extra talk channels?

Just to clarify for the newbies... Oz and NZ have frequencies allocated for 'CB radio' channels. As the Doctor above mentions, they start, at 476.425mhz and increment in 25 Khz steps to give 40 channels... to Joe Bloggs that means "My cb radio has channel 1 up to channel 40..."

The big point is that joe public can buy and use a CB radio without any special licenses. (and is what 95% of people commonly talk about.)

The UHF spectrum covers a huge range, but the vast majority of it is reserved, allocated, licensed, restricted... like police, fire, ambo's, taxi, aircraft etc etc... using these frequencies without permission is tantamount to "trespassing".

Radio's capable of using these frequncies are generally not available/sold to the public.

Mat: You want a CB radio you do.

While I have owned GME products in the past (and had a good run) I now have a 5 watt chinese Ebay special. It has been belted to death on my KLR including my recent trip to Birdsville and back and performed brilliantly.

Cost around $110.

Uniden 078SX had mine and Karens for 3 years with no problems very good range and when you are close you can put them to a low watt setting which saves power.By the way is your bike OK now?
