Hi guys,

 

I am looking for setting them up the pair of walkie talkie to get to use the repeater in the Auckland area.

 

Questions:

 

     

  1. What is the frequency? For both UHF and VHF.
  2. VHF frequency: try 145.175 does not really work well.
  3. Should I use CTCS for both receive and transmit?
  4. Been to this website, does not really say about it. https://www.radiowiki.org.nz/index.php/Northland_Region
  5. and this website https://www.mobilesystems.co.nz/news_and_publications/id/51/VHF%20Marine%20Radio%20Frequencies

 

Thank you in advance.

 

 

 

Alex

Yeah but 145.175 doesnt, so I am assuming this is a baofeng off aliexpress/wish/banggood that they are just using frequncies all over the place with no idea about licensing etc.

And Marine frequencies also require registration with a callsign before use.

In a nutshell three thing -

 

Firstly PRS information is all available in on the RSM site. I don't know whether there are any PRS repeaters in Auckland.

 

Secondly you're not allowed to transmit on any other channels other than PRS without the appropriate licence. This includes HAM and Marine repeaters.

 

Thirdly if it is a cheap Baofeng or similar these are illegal in NZ and you will be fined if you are caught in possession of one of these that has not been approved for use in NZ and is locked to the HAM bands.

You cant use a baofeng or similar on PRS as its not approved for it. You cant transmit with one of them without a ham license and an understanding of what freqs you can and cant use.

 

Never heard of anyone being fined for possession of one, people that have been are ones that interfere with licensed frequencies.

 

Put them back in the box and dont use them, too easy to accidentally transmit. Local amateur radio group will be where you need to go for info but its generally a bunch of old men.

As above. Thanks to people 'trying' stuff with items off the internet, it's made it very hard for all.

 

National PRS (UHF CB)/GURL licence frequencies:

 

https://www.radiowiki.org.nz/index.php/UHF_PRS_Frequencies

 

The north shore and out west is the only Repeaters up that way.

Anything else, you're not to use (without appropriate training/licence)
