Hey guys, I'm new here (though I've been reading this forum silently for the last +-6 months) so excuse me if the thread's in the wrong spot. Planning to drive up to Alice through Mildura --> Flinders Ranges --> Marree --> Oodnadatta starting this weekend. After Alice heading to WA to travel for a month there. Will be my first big 'offroad' trip so preparing a lot lately to get the most out of it, but moreover, be safe. Though I see a lot on videos that in remote areas travellers communicate through their uhf's with roadworks, occasionally cattle stations and sometimes roadhouses / police stations to be up-to-date about the warnings in the area. Whether it's the roadworks, road conditions and weather conditions. Now I know there are 40 CB channels and know exactly which ones I am allowed to use, and which I am not. But how do I know on which channel I can communicate with those roadworks/stations in the area? As in, is there a main channel in Australia that is being used for these things, or is there a sign when I enter a certain area which tells me to switch to a certain channel? Of course I'd like to have a chat with other people in the area for fun, but mainly want to be up to date with roadworks/conditions and/or stations nearby me. Are there any other things that will be helpful to use my UHF for when travelling? I'm totally new to the UHF scene so really have no clue how to use it properly, other than just picking an available channel (which I am allowed to be on) and have a chat. Thanks in advance! Keep up the good stuff here, love reading the threads!
