HFoZ is Australia's newest HF Radio Network. After constant requests from all over Australia, finally we have bowed to pressure to launch this new and exciting HF Network. As you'll see from below, HFoZ provides many additional new services, most of which have never been available before in Australia or the world for that matter.

Before we get into nitty gritties, HFoZ will allow you to get much more usage from your HF Radio and assist in bringing together many other HF Radio users with similar interests to share all knowledge.

With the continual increase in the interest of HF Radio and the substantial growing number of sales throughout Australia, there's no doubt, a need for this type of network was warranted.

Overview

HFoZ/Radtel, has 15 carefully selected channels, ranging from 3 to 16Mhz.

Below is our 3 stage tiered plan options for HFoZ services and facilities, HFoZ Standard, HFoZ Xtra and HFoZ Complete

HFoZ-Standard - $65 Per Year
  Vehicle to Vehicle
 
Voice Comms - Vehicle to Vehicle ONLY  
HFoZ, gives you access to voice communications between vehicles without the interruptions from scheduled reports and or fixed times for reporting and logging.

SMS-PageCall Message Service* - Vehicle to Vehicle ONLY  
Most modern day radios are equipped with SMS or sometimes known as Paging. This feature allows the user the facility to send and receive short messages usually up to a maximum of around 64 characters between radios. It is particularly handy in times when signal strength may not be as good as required for normal voice communications.

GPS Position Reporting* - Vehicle to Vehicle ONLY  
GPS Position Reporting (providing the HF Radio has a GPS interfaced) will allow the user to send and receive GPS positions to and from other vehicles fitted with GPS. - Special HFoZ Deal - Click HERE
HFoZ-Xtra - $99 Per Year

Vehicle to Base Tracking

GPS Position Data Logging allows the radio user to send their co-ordinates to any of the designated HFoZ Base sites for safety logging purposes. The base will then automatically store this data for any possible safety and emergency purposes recall. It also gives your family, friends and business associates access to view these stored records from our secure database, by simply using any normal internet connection, via 'user name' and 'password'. In addition it will give them the facility to upload these GPS positions to a mapping page (Natmap Raster 1:250K Topographical) for easy reference. This completely eliminates the need for Voice logging to a base operator and is far more reliable than Voice Comms particularly in times of weak signal strength and poor propagation.

Message Logging Service* - Vehicle to Base

Message Logging allows the user to send messages (i.e., safety logging messages or just general messages) up to a maximum of 64 characters, to any of the designated HFoZ Base Sites. The information will then be stored on our secure database for any possible emergency purposes recall. It also gives your family, friends and business associates access to view these stored messages via any normal internet connection using your 'user name' and 'password'. Once again this feature as in GPS above, completely eliminates the need for Voice logging to a base operator.
