Gosford City Council MPT System
by Cartman on Mon Jan 26, 2009 4:56 pm

I had a big look into this system about 2 years ago when it became active. Gosford is a split system - part is on 150Mhz and part on 162-164Mhz. The split occurs above ch 74, which means that on the log data allowance has to be made for the split. This was the information I collected back in 2007 and i haven't double-checked it lately, however it seems a good match with the information presented by centralcoastscan

ID: 2389 Ch: 103 - Somersby
ID: 2391 Ch: 025 - Kincumber
ID: 2399 Ch: 076 - Boomerang Ridge
ID: 23A1 Ch: 184 - Mangrove Mountain

I have noticed from occasional monitoring that the data channels tend to alternate between two frequencies eg 150.3125 and 150.6125

I can confirm that 150.6125 is still booming in as a Control Channel for this system as I can hear it from my shack

Discovered this morning at Blacktown that i can hear all four Gosford Council MPT 1327 data sites (Somersby, Kincumber Mountain, Boomerang Ridge and Mangrove Mountain), though they are not strong. In fact due to the presence of a seabreeze inversion with yesterday's Noreaster I was able to hear Mt Sugarloaf NXDN Control Channel on 163.725mhz during the evening ( a good 140-150km distance).

whilst listening to the Gosford Lifeguards, they often say "go to Channel 20" I dont know if they are referring to 20 UHF CB or a channel on their VHF Net

Discovered when checking against the acma database that the Gosford Council MPT1327 system is a lot larger than i realised. Turns out there is an extra three sites.

Further frequencies added

July 2008
163.1500 Tx Patonga Ch 129
164.2125 Tx Patonga Ch 214

July 2011
162.6500 Tx Erina Ch 89
162.7500 Tx Erina Ch 97
163.2500 Tx Erina Ch 137

July 2013
150.7250 Tx Blackwall Ch 34
151.0250 Tx Blackwall Ch 58

At each site there should be an active control channel, which probably alternates between frequencies.

Gosford Council is upgrading their MPT1327 system to DMR according to the ACMA database. I can hear the MPT1327 control channels so it is still in transition. Would appreciate feedback from folk on the Central Coast from what they can hear/cant hear eg Active DMR, Digital colour codes, talkgroups, radio ids etc. My logging is limited to seabreeze inversions these days. Our family sold the weekender at Bateau Bay some years ago. The list below is from private notes i have made
