View Full Version : Mobile Coverage / VHF Sunshine Coast offshore

28-09-2008, 07:47 PM
If possible, Can I get some feedback on mobile phone coverage offshore at the Barwon Banks and Caloundra Wide. I am considering a Telstra Next G mobile which is supposed to have better coverage compared to my current Digital with Telstra. Also looking for any feedback if anyone has noticed when VHF coverage to mooloolaba coast guard dropped off, - roughly how far offshore.? Any help appreciated.
Cheers, Don

You will definitely improve your range if you instal an appropriate high gain aerial high on your boat.
