Might as well have a dedicated thread for Gold Coast CB repeater updates.
(thread currently public view-able)

As of this week, ABC03 is back on after three months off, but still sounds like death.

ABC05 is still on, never went off, but has no station ident (illegal) and is emergency use.

Both are still at the same location.

Both aren't listed on the ACMA data base anymore. (expired)

But the two taxi repeaters and one construction business repeater,
at the same address are still listed on the ACMA data base.

Gary Grevis isn't listed on the ACMA data anymore, for CB, or commercial activity.

As it seems Grevis is no longer associated with the commercial repeaters at the site, it might be safe to assume he's let it all go to someone else, or the ACMA stepped in and kicked him out.

Who do we contact about 03 still playing up?

Who wants to ring Grevis and ask the question? (I'm out of booze for  few days)

If the site is unattended, then Number 7 thinks we should put our hands up.

I can't see that being an option.

Trouble is, three businesses still have their gear running at the site.

Any thoughts?

Yes I think we should try take it over ourselves - it would stick it up  Starvin Dimmock
Nobody else wants it. It has been said here before - why would anyone licence a public repeater?

Channel 5 has been fixed back to like it was as it is reachable from handheld again

There is a possibility just through pure fluke that I may have a secret side door to   glasses11
but I have gotta approach it very carefully.... cant say too much here but I will see what I can do

It must be currently seeking a new owner otherwise it would be listed on the ACMA database
Plus nobody would run something that sounds like it does at the moment

... it would stick it up  Starvin Dimmock

David dog dirt doesn't care who runs or fixes it.
Once fixed, he'll still be a cunt on it.

That other brown fingered prick from Southport was on it for a few minutes last night.
Fucked if I'm going to break my balls setting up his play ground again.

Channel 5 has been fixed back..
With 03 kinda on, the protest is over, thus we shouldn't be anywhere near it.

I may have a secret side door to..
Why the 007 cloak and dagger?  Burka

Just ring him up. His mobile number is a listed business number.
I'd do it again, but as we know, he and I don't get on well.

There's only two reasons I want 03 working..
1. Hear 249 and Wazza
2. Bump into new people (chicks, please  Jesus, send some chicks)

Otherwise 10 was fine, as...
1. the mentally ill are powerless there.
2. if you can hear a road worker, then they can hear us tell them to fuck off.

Either my radios are rooted, or both 3 and 5 are off today.

..it off

they're both off, so it's safe to say either the place had a
tree fall on it or they have been turned off.

why the frick turn 3 back on for a week in the first place though?

life's mysteries.  dontknow

if the person / people that know about it, also read here, can you email me please

GoldCoastCB Newsletter 28/10/17

A couple of months ago Gary Greivs pulled both ABC03 and ABC05 public repeaters down, leaving Gold Coaster's in limbo.

Those down south (Wazza and 249) are hit worse by the shut down.
Northern enders can still mostly hear each other on simplex.

Commercial operators using CB's have to keep off active repeater channels.
This is good for the public, as it gives us (public) some authority to tell them to move on.

That's all changed now that there's are no registered repeaters on the Gold Coast, as the ACMA allows use, by anyone, on non-active repeater channels.

Northern enders have tried moving from 3 to 10, then 10 to 13.
Each move ends up the same - the public users having to put up with commercial operators nattering on around the clock day and night.

Main problem is the ACMA encouraging commercial operators to use the public spectrum, rather than encourage or force them to acquire licensed commercial equipment and licensed commercial frequencies - all of which is tax deductible and a win fall for the governments revenue pocket. Yet we're stuck with them.

On the other foot, if the public uses commercial frequencies without licensing, all hell breaks loose. How the hell is that fair?

While there are no public repeaters, thus no public rights to tell commercial ops to piss off ... where do we go? What's the home channel we can legally defend from the commercials?

Channel 10 is the unofficial National Parks 4x4 channel, but none of us are in 4x4's or in the national parks.

Currently some of us are on 13, but the commercials are very bad there. Seems like three different companies using it at various times around the clock.

Traditionally world wide, channel 11 has been the public call channel on the older style 27mhz CB radios. Seems legit to carry that tradition over onto the UHF CB channel 11.

Commercials that complain can simply google search "cb channel 11" and see for themselves what the case is.

If we don't nail down at least one simplex channel for public use only, then they'll take them all. New companies are popping up everywhere on the CB.

Is CB, 'citizen band', or commercial band? CITIZEN BAND

So until a public repeater is functioning on the Gold Coast (don't hold your breath) I admin monkey (cooter) will now be bedding down and using channel 11 simplex.

Thanks,
Cooter. (Rodney)

There are specific calling channels in the CB bands.

UHF band:

    channel 11 (476.675 MHz)

https://www.acma.gov.au/Citizen/TV-Radio/Radio/Marine-and-Amateur-Radio/citizen-band-radio-service-cbrs-fact-sheet

Update, 11 is legit for UHF anyways  Cool Chicken
Let any commercial operation try and deny that.
