When a loco or unit has an exam (a service in none railway terms) the NRN radio is tested by calling the remote radio test unit and leaving a message, generally the loco number. The unit then plays the message back confirming that the radio is transmitting and receiving.

Aha! So there is a valid use for a parrot repeater after all! :P

Also if you want to tune to the station frequencies (not trains themselves) they are usually on analogue at 453.550 and 453.900, worth programming them in as well :)

I would imagine that the shunting yards would retain these local freqs, no point having them on a national network really :-/

Anyone who can still hear the radios can you please make a video of it for people to watch in the future when they're all secure and we can't listen in anymore?
