Not sure if this was mention before.
But ill say it again. :cool:
In 2011 aus gov will allow use of 80 channels in the 477mhz frequency,

After reading a catalog, Ive learn't that some of the later GME - Uniden radios are user upgradeable. Further reading, found that my TX 3100 isnt (purchased may last year:mad:).
Here's some info off GME's website:

As with the older 40 channel plan, some channels are reserved for telemetry data only. There are also three channels reserved for future use. In summary :-
• There are 75 voice channels
• Channels 22 and 23 are reserved for telemetry and telecommand. Voice transmission is prohibited on
these channels.

• Channel 61, 62 and 63 are reserved for future use. GME radios can receive on these channels however voice
and data transmission is inhibited at this point in time.

• There are 16 Duplex channels 1 to 8 (31 to 38 ) and 41 to 48 (71 to 78 ).
• Channel 5 (+Duplex 35) remains the emergency channel.

Just to clarify on GME's:

As from December 2010 production onwards, a number of our current 40 channel wideband radios will be able to be upgraded to the new 80 channel narrowband standard. These radios are easily identifiable by the upgradeable sticker on the packaging and by the serial number with the prefix 012, 101, 102 and103. All radios with the serial number of 011 (November 2010) or earlier are not user or dealer upgradeable via software.
The TX3100 and TX3340 will be User upgradeable, while the TX3220, TX3420 and TX3440 will be Dealer upgradeable.


And the only the Uniden UH7700 series are 77 channel ready. None of their current 40ch radio's can be upgraded as far as I know.
