Thankfully when I read in a previous thread what the bandplan would be, I programmed all of them into my scanner, lets see what the take up rate is.

For a little while at least channels 9-16 should be fairly free of casual users as it'll take a while for the new handsets to work their way into the leisure market. That's leaves the freqs free for us radio jockeys to play with :D
