Austravel SafetyNet Channels:

Hear our frequencies live using our KiwiSDR remote receivers. Use the browser back button to return to this screen to select another channel OR use the KiwiSDR panel to adjust the channel frequency. Try the new camp function to hear what others are hearing.

View the full sked time tables under the SKEDS tab to select a time and channels when you will hear the base operators and mobile stations. 

You don't need to be an Austravel member to use these receivers.  When on the receiver please select the USER tab and put your name, selcall or amateur call in the box.  A sked operator can address you if you are monitoring.

If you camp on a user it also leaves other SDR channels free saving multiple slots being used on the same frequency.

East SDR is at a temporary location to get it back on.   It is a bit noisey and will move to a better location soon.

Sometimes the SDR receiver is not immediately available as it is fully busy with users, particularly around sked times.   That is four users in the West or up to eight in the East. Chances are that someone is already listening to the frequency you want at that time.  You can piggyback or camp on another user and listen to their frequency selection.  At this menu you can go in the que for the next available SDR channel slot and using this makes more slots available for all.
