Thumbs up

CB Packet radio in Australia on the normal 40 channels both 27Mhz & 476/477Mhz UHF is illegal in Australia.

However via a loophole you can operate packet on the in between channels on 27Mhz at 1 Watt EIRP thanks to the LIPD Act. (Low Interferance Devices act).

The ACMA really needs to look into better usage of these bands by allowing more freedom on what can be done there.

In my opinion all modes, emission types , and variable frequency stepping should be allowed.

They should also follow the international CEPT standard of 80 channels.

FM and Packet on 27Mhz and Packet on UHF CB should be an easy given in this day and age for CB.

Those were all good points.
I was going to add that the Citizens Band there is more closely regulated then it is in the USA and that they are not running Packet on AM but on FM.
FM is not legal on the 27 mhz Citizens Band in the USA, nor is repeaters.

Packet does have it's uses, it is used as a part of the TNC for APRS, which is widely used by 2 meter and 440 mhz amateur use in the USA.
