Daniel, my callsign for the boat is 'Corrysplace', haven't got the name on the boat, not sure if I want to at this stage.
I use channel 82 VHF, although, don't call me too much, I take it your from Caloundra, as I am in Gladstone, I don't think the ergatrons will travel that far.

Hey Guys,
Thought id add to this thread.
Im in the Gold Coast/Moreton Bay region, and i monitor VHF 73 & 74.
My new callsign is "Shipped In".
Im on air pretty much every day as i also work on the water.
If I go up into Brisbane I generally moitor 73 and 82.

I have always recognised channel 94 on 27 meg to be the station to contact fellow Ausfishers in the Moreton Bay area. Most boats have a 27 around here, it seems to be well monitored in the area. But a lot of boats have both, but not all.
I have always recognised 94 as being the channel for a chit chat.
Cheers Kev.

I am an associate member of Redcliffe Coastguard and go by the name Mobile 157. I have VHF and usually use 73 and listen to 16 sometimes.

ReBait on 21, 82, 73. depending on where we are. VHF.

always log in on the calling channel, and then will switch to a repeater station for better clarity.

You may get me on ' Skanky Hoe " ch 91 27meg at times. but I will be sneaking arouind somewhere and may not answer you /

ssshhhhhh ! Phill

Hi Steve

Many of us are from Brisbane and SE Qld, but we have a growing number from North Qld. But we also have a bunch on Mexicans, but I wouldn't know how many.
