  About the BushTelephone+ Network

 We wish to take this opportunity to introduce you to the Bushphone Plus+ HF Radio Telephone Network. This Network has been designed to offer you, the remote area traveller, the best available coverage throughout Australia. This service gives you the ability to make telephone calls using your HF Radio. To achieve this, we have established bases in very quiet locations at Cowra, Alice Springs and Charters Towers.

 Nine frequencies in the range 3.7 to 15.9 MHz are licensed to Radiodata and most bases are equipped with six. All frequencies are reserved for HF Telephone Interconnection only. The use of multiple bases and a wide range of exclusive frequencies allows us to offer you a far more reliable service.

The Bushphone Plus+ Network is a direct dial service utilising the telcall format.  The following radios are amongst those that can be used on this network:

Codan Barrett Q-mac HF-90 Icom F7000
Envoy 2050    
NGT 950    
9323 551    
8528 550    

 We have recently upgraded our phone system at Cowra, Alice Springs and Charters Towers bases with the latest technology Codan 3033 Sim Card Compatible Interconnect. This now provides a greatly improved service with the following features -:

  • Direct Dialling
  • Improved voice quality
  • No more recorded messages
  • The ability to ring from phone (landline & mobile) to HF radio
    (contact Wayne for more details)

 NOTE -: Wayne would like to extend his great thanks to Ray & Jill Wilkinson for their many years of service managing the Charters Towers site. The base has been moved to their son John's place and is working very well with the latest Codan equipment to provide trouble-free HF Phone service.
