  • Welcome to Scanner Australia Broadcasting!

    The Youtube channel streaming live in 11 hour increments is available now you can click here to visit. You can find live streams and archived audio of this stream on this channel.

    This is the central hub of Broadcasting, information, community integration and a comprehensive user submitted library of frequencies, caller IDs and repeater stations for the GRN. We are a crowdfunded Live Broadcast site which also offers in-depth information and resources on everything Scanning Related. With a growing community and ever increasing wealth of information, we strive to build the go-to site for Scanning Hobbyists and news-seekers alike.

    Even though the variety of information varies state by state, I am constantly adding more data and information for more Australian states. If you cannot find the info you are looking for please first check the forums. There is a good chance that a member has posted something useful under your home state. If you still come up empty please start a new thread in the relevant forum and I will answer as soon as I can.

    I am currently busy publishing all Analog Police Archives I have collected over the decade of streaming. You can catch the broadcasts on youtube. Just go to this link. There is no deadline of completion as I have busy periods in my life where I cannot dedicate enough time to upload the audio. Please check back regularly or better yet, subscribe to my youtube channel.

    I sincerely hope that you enjoy this website and that you will find the information and broadcast offered here interesting.


    News Update 1:

    Shortly I will start offering dabatase programming service for both the UBCD396T and UBCD536-PT digital scanners by Uniden. This service will provide you with the latest GRN database for your area as a digital download for you to directly copy to your scanner. I will announce pricing once the details have been worked out.

    News Update 2:

    I introduced a new feature, you will be able to see a listing of Australian Compatible Scanners. This feature is still in development but you can get an early preview from the top of the main menu - Scanner Database. I hope you enjoy the new features being introduced.

Important Changes to the Broadcast

First of all thank you for all those who donates, subscribed, joined my Patreon. Due to your help I am proud to announce the purchase of the latest generation scanner - the UBCD536PT-AU. This scanner does not only allow proper TGID naming but it also improves reception, increases the number of channels I can receive but it also adds clarity to the communications like never before. This scanner is now in full operation and is running on my internal datbase 1.6.

Every couple of days I am updating the database to add even more channels to listen to, due to the Coronavirus crisis unfolding in NSW, NSW Health communications are being given priority in all broadcasts.

It costs me several hundred dollars a quarter to maintain this website, licensing and software so I decided to get into the cruel Youtube World. If you want to help me out but dont want to spend any money (who does?), please head to my Youtube Channel and become a subscriber. It will help me a great deal. The primary stream will always be free but I alway am looking for ways to survive another 3 months. So if you can help me, take up one of the support packages (thanks), become a patreaon (thanks!) or subscribe to my Youtube Channel (I love you).

This is all for now in terms of updates, but before I forget, the Scanner Australia Toolkit 2020 is currently now working. I am going to release an updated fixed version over the coming days/weeks depending on my schedule.

    Important Changes to Scanner

    I have invested in a brand new scanner. Introducing the UBCD536-PT, which is the latest generation of digital trunking scanners capable of decoding the Government Radio Network. As this scanner is extremely different to the previous scanner, the database is now being re-written from scratch. This ensures that we are now able to receive many more broadcasts at a much higher clarity. If you would like to see the display in action, simply join the Youtube Channel


    This scanner has almost cost me a thousand dollars and adding the running costs of this website, you can appreciate that I need some help financially. If you are in the position to assist with a dollar or two, please donate either on patreon or directly here on Scanner Australia by taking up a support package which will give you some additional benefits.

    Any amount will help me a great deal and I am fully committed to keeping this community service free for all.
