Canberra 2014 Hot Rod show
« on: January 25, 2014, 04:03:00 AM »
I got myself out this morning and went to a Hot Rod show. I know many of you are interested in cars as well, so hope there are some of interest. I just love those big old Yank Tanks with big fins on the back, and even ones without the fins.

UHF 477mhz 80 channel in Australia is mainstream, limit of 5 watts output after that you need a licence.  VHF is still around but not used much for land based coms. Marine CBs use VHF

Marine band is VHF everywhere, AFAIK, because VHF does a lot better over water than does UHF.

Here the UHF unlicensed  band is the FRS (Family Radio Service).   I own  several of such portable units which are great for very close range communications. But here the unlicensed power limit is 0.5 watts.

Wonderful old cars.  I'm curious; with all the strict vehicle regulations in Australia how do get such old cars registered for street use?  Is it like the states where old vehicles are held to different standards?
