Other information

The outpost assigned licensing option authorises the operation of 'control' stations used to provide emergency medical aid services and certain public correspondence. The Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) is the only organisation licensed under this arrangement.

The outpost non assigned licensing option authorises stations to communicate with the control stations on frequencies specified in the Outpost Licence Determination.
