[WA] Emergency Radio Network (WAERN)

Postby Bigfella237 » Sat Mar 30, 2019 7:40 pm

It's been a rainy day here but I haven't been bored thanks to Cartman, who sent me a heap of ACMA info on the West Australian Emergency Radio Network (WAERN) this morning.

Unfortunately there is little to no information on this system, it is a P25 Trunking system (compatible with all other statewide government trunk systems except Tasmania), but that's about it. I spent an hour or so searching and cannot even find a SYSID (although cartman advised a NAC of "1A0"), however I assume it would be under the same WACN ID as the other systems ("BEE00") as it would be silly not to allow for some liaison between the states.

It seems there are 78 trunking sites at the moment, which I have added to a new WAERN Google Map, however there is also supposed to be some tie-in with several hundred other single-frequency sites that I don't fully understand, whether these are set-up as single frequency trunk sites or just part of a P25 PMR network patched into certain talkgroups? I don't know but I haven't listed those single-frequency sites below.

If anyone has any information on site numbers etc. please add it below. I haven't bothered gathering frequency information, you can get it off the ACMA pages if needed. And I'm not sure how much more work I'm prepared to put into this list unless we can find some additional info, it's a little pointless having "Unknown Site #" on everything?

Apologies, the WAERN Map should now be viewable. It's been a while since I setup a new map and I forgot that they default to the "private" setting, should be all better now.

I started checking frequencies on these trunk sites, which lead me to adding microwave links, which lead me to adding PMR sites, and now it's all kinda spiraling out of control!

But it's obvious that I will need to check because I've already found one additional trunk site that wasn't in the original list, so I expect there will be others.

I just wish we could find some details of the system / sites / channels / etc.

I believe they're Department of Corrections Digital Network if they're licensed to WA Police and are P25 digital encrypted - as far as I am aware DFES are still analogue on a mixture of VHF mid and hi band as well as in the 467-469MHz range.

Thanks Frank,

Do you have or know anyone who has any details on the system itself? I'm not so much interested in the users or talkgroups etc., I'm just trying to put a site number to the sites if possible?

This is just general information that can be gathered by monitoring the control channels of each site with Unitrunker or DSD+ or Pro96Com or any digital trunk tracker scanner, nothing to do with encryption so no 'security issues'.

Also, details of the bandplan(s) in use would be great too, that way we should be able to tell what frequencies to expect.
