Radio is a form of ground wave communication that is highly recommended
for coastal, outback, warehouse and business communications in
Australia. This form of communication is on the FM Band which
supplies superior voice quality and less ambient background noise.
Definitely a more professional type of communication than the
27Mhz CB. The other beneficial factor with UHF Radio is the public
repeater system throughout Australia. With these repeaters, range
of UHF Radio is improved drastically allowing far more flexible
use of the radio. Features like scan, selcall and scrambler mode
once again gives the user far greater flexibility for any given
situation. UHF radio is available in handheld or mobile units.
Listed below are brief explanations of the main features found
in a UHF radio.
Scan is a feature that is extensively used in highway and outback
communications for gaining the maximum information on this band
of radio. There are two types of scan on each scanning UHF Radio.
Group scan allows the user to program any channels
he or she desires into the scan function. This type of scan is
commonly used for gaining the maximum information whilst on the
road. A common scan is CH 1-8 and CH 40. Channels one up to eight
cover all repeater stations throughout Australia and channel forty
is classed as the highway channel.
scan allows the user to quickly scan all forty channels
continuously. This is most commonly used in an emergency situation
when communication is needed with anybody that can help your current
Selcall is a feature that is designed more for
the business user but can also be a handy feature if you are travelling
with more than one vehicle. Selcall stands for Selective
Calling System which allows the user to call each individual
radio separately or as a group. This system uses coding that is
transmitted to the other radios in the group to raise an alarm
on the corresponding radio. Thus letting the other user know that
he is being contacted. For a more in depth look at this feature
