    Exclamation UHF CB frequencies usage chart

    AUSTRALIAN UHF CB/PERSONAL RADIO SERVICE CHANNEL ALLOCATIONS

    In Australia, although there is no individual licence needed to use this equipment, it is still governed by the Citizens Band Radio Stations Class Licence and the Radiocommunications Act. Under this Federal legislation certain channels have been reserved for specific use. Some other channels have also been designated for certain uses by general agreement. These are National allocations – there may be channels used locally for other purposes, however these uses are not part of the legislated channel allocations.


    Repeaters [range extenders] (Established by law)
    1 to 8 ( 31 to 38 )

    Transmitting on these channels within range of a repeater will increase the communications range. A repeater needs two channels to work, i.e. 1 and
    31 up to 8 and 38, thus, channels 31 to 38 should also be avoided from use.

    Emergency Calling (Established by law)
    5 & 35
    Can be used by anyone in an emergency situation ONLY. Ch 35 is used by 5/35 Repeaters. You should NOT use channel 35 for normal contacts!

    Calling Channel (Established by law)
    11
    To call or locate another station. Parties must then switch to a conversation channel.

    Conversations (Established by law)
    9, 10, 12 to 21, 24 to 30, 39
    Used for conversations between stations.

    Data Transmissions (Established by law)
    22, 23
    No voice transmissions allowed on these two channels. Reserved for telemetry & telecommand.

    Highway Communications (Legally Recommended Use)
    40
    Mainly used by Truck Drivers and other Highway users.

    Highway Communications (Generally Accepted Use)
    29
    Mainly used by Truck Drivers and other Highway users on Pacific Highway.

    Caravaners, Campers (Generally Accepted Use)
    18
    Holiday Maker’s communication channel, e.g., when in convoy.

    4WDrivers (Generally Accepted Use)
    10
    Used by 4WD enthusiasts, clubs, convoys and in national parks.

    PLEASE NOTE!
    Although the Class Licence does permit the use of channels 1 – 8 and 31 – 38 for normal conversations (except channels 5/35) when there is no repeater within range, as atmospheric conditions can cause signals to travel excessive distances, the use of these channels even outside the known coverage area of a repeater could cause interference to distant repeater stations.
