V8 SUPERCARS (Bathurst 1000) 2016



Hello and welcome back.... ITS BACK, The Supercheap Bathurst 1000 for 2016

UPDATED 07/10/2016

The Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 takes place at the Mount Panorama Racing Circuit from October 8-11.

THE 2016 V8 SUPERCARS ENTRY LIST
No. 1 — MARK WINTERBOTTOM
Prodrive Racing Australia, Ford Falcon FG X
Frosty finally has the title he has for so long coveted. Now his big challenge is to back it up.
Despite the new colours, continuity is in his corner. Along with driving the same fleet Falcon he piloted to championship glory, he will also head into the new year with the same race engineer for the first time in five years.

No. 2 — GARTH TANDER
Holden Racing Team, Holden Commodore VF
There are two statistics that tell the tale of Tander’s 2015 season. He made up a grand total of 101 positions on the opening laps of races — largely because his average starting position was in double figures.
Despite enduring just his second winless season in a decade, he still landed the Pirtek Enduro Cup crown with Warren Luff. If HRT can unlock improved qualifying pace, expect Tander to be a regular threat.

No. 3 — ANDRE HEIMGARTNER
Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, Holden Commodore VF
It’s a richly-deserved second chance for the 20-year-old Kiwi after he was cast aside by Super Black Racing before his maiden season was supposed to end.
There were times that Heimgartner was the best of the Prodrive fleet last year. An impressive feat against three pilots who, between them, accounted for 16 wins and the 2015 championship.

No. 4 — AAREN RUSSELL
Erebus Motorsport, Holden Commodore VF
Russell will make his fulltime debut in 2016 after a one-off drive as a wildcard with brother Drew in last year’s Bathurst 1000.
It will prove to be a very big leap for the 24-year-old Novocastrian, who has a handful of podium finishes from his seasons in the Dunlop Series.

No. 6 — CAMERON WATERS
Prodrive Racing Australia, Ford Falcon FG X
Waters first taste of fame was as winner of the inaugural Shannons Supercars Showdown reality show, earning him a debut at the 2011 Bathurst 1000 at the tender age of 17.
Now 21, scintillating form carried him to the Dunlop Series title last year and he looked comfortable in the main game deputising for the injured Mostert.

No. 7 — TODD KELLY
Nissan Motorsport, Nissan Altima
The 36-year-old looked like his old self last year, posting his best championship finish since the Kelly boys took control of their team.
While his results may have wavered his commitment and passion have remained; witness his extraordinary outburst at Ipswich last year.

No. 8 — JASON BRIGHT
Brad Jones Racing, Holden Commodore VF
The veteran of the V8 field when it comes to age, Bright showed flashes of frontrunning form at times during 2015.
Like Tander, unlocking qualifying pace will be key to the Team BOC driver racing at the front of the field more often.

No. 9 — DAVID REYNOLDS
Erebus Motorsport, Holden Commodore VF
After almost being left standing when the music stopped on the silly season, the man who won two races in 2015, finished third in the championship and took pole position at Bathurst, landed himself a seat.
The proposition ahead of Reynolds looks markedly better now Erebus has switched from its self-built Mercedes to a pair of Walkinshaw Racing Holdens.

No. 12 — FABIAN COULTHARD
DJR Team Penske, Ford Falcon FG X
Coulthard was one of the high-profile movers in the 2015 silly-season, confirming his exit from Brad Jones Racing to pilot a second car at DJR Team Penske.
This is a team that means business and showed improving form at late-season rounds in 2015. Coulthard could be the final piece needed to make them regular winners again.

No. 14 — TIM SLADE
Brad Jones Racing, Holden Commodore VF
Slade moves to his third team in four seasons, replacing Coulthard in the team’s Freightliner Commodore.
The 30-year-old has been knocking on the door of a maiden V8 race win for several seasons and will be hoping the new combination will allow him to break his duck.

No. 15 — RICK KELLY
Nissan Motorsport, Nissan Altima
Like his older brother, Kelly was back on form in 2015 and leading the Altima fleet with a pair of seconds and a pair of thirds.
Will be hoping his new colours — trading Jack Daniel’s black and white for Sengled’s red and chrome — will coincide with Nissan realising their potential.

No. 17 — SCOTT PYE
DJR Team Penske, Ford Falcon FG X
Of all the tests the 26-year-old has faced in his career, 2016 represents the sternest. Pye should have the best equipment he has ever had at his disposal as DJR Team Penske continues to build form.
Equally, he can now be measured against a known quantity. In the team’s other car sits a race winner and title contender.

No. 18 — LEE HOLDSWORTH
Charlie Schwerkolt Racing, Holden Commodore VF
The sponsor, the manufacturer and the boss may be the same, but it’s effectively the third new team for the 33-year-old after Schwerkolt’s exit from the Walkinshaw Racing umbrella.
The good news is Holdsworth is armed with a Triple Eight-built Holden and has some of the finest talent available among his crew.

No. 19 — WILL DAVISON
Tekno Autosports, Holden Commodore VF
His Erebus exile now at an end, Davison is now back in a team that can potentially deliver him a championship victory.
Although one-car teams are against the norm in the sport, the quality of personnel, machinery and pilot make this a very competitive proposition.

No. 21 — TIM BLANCHARD
Brad Jones Racing, Holden Commodore VF
Blanchard heads up the Hume Highway this year, switching from Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport to the third car at Brad Jones Racing.
This is a car that is capable of top 10 finishes and represents this talented steerer’s best chance for good results since his season at Dick Johnson Racing in 2013.

No. 22 — JAMES COURTNEY
Holden Racing Team, Holden Commodore VF
Controversy and bad luck seems to have dogged James Courtney in recent seasons. From season-interrupting injuries to ill-timed car breakages, teammate tangles and co-driver crashes, the No. 22 car has struggled to shake the little rain cloud above it.
But Courtney is just as fast as ever. A canny fuel-mileage win on the Gold Coast and a pole at Homebush show any ill-effects of his rib injury aren’t present inside the cockpit. Like teammate Tander, can be a title contender if the team can provide him with machinery capable of racing at the front at every track.

No. 23 — MICHAEL CARUSO
Nissan Motorsport, Nissan Altima
Another driver who will be rapt to put 2015 in the rear view mirror. Just 12 months prior Caruso had been Nissan’s best performer, snaring a top-10 finish in the championship.
Regularly qualifying and racing inside the top 10 — and hopefully snagging a win — will be on the second-generation racer’s radar this season.

No. 33 — SCOTT MCLAUGHLIN
Garry Rogers Motorsport, Volvo S60
2015 was what some like to call a ‘character-building’ year for the likeable Kiwi. He may want to call it something else.
But what doesn’t kill you make you stronger, and a hungry McLaughlin allied with a swift and reliable Volvo is a dangerous combination.
The latter will need to be — McLaughlin is off-contract at the end of the 2016 season and will likely be one of the most in-demand among those yet to lock in a 2017 deal.

No. 34 — JAMES MOFFAT
Garry Rogers Motorsport, Volvo S60
After three testing seasons at Nissan, Moffat will be looking to prove his strong form in 2014 and race victory in 2013 were no flashes in the pan.
Moffat’s arrival also gives GRM their strongest driver combination since the days of Holdsworth and Caruso.

No. 55 — CHAZ MOSTERT
Prodrive Racing Australia, Ford Falcon FG X
The comeback kid could well be the champion at year’s end. Mostert’s 2015 form was astonishing through the middle of the year, looming as Winterbottom’s only title rival until his horror Bathurst crash.
How will the crash have impacted his driving? We’ll know for certain after Adelaide, but all signs suggest he will be just as quick in 2016.

No. 88 — JAMIE WHINCUP
Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden Commodore VF
Beware the scorned former champion. The last time Jamie Whincup lost a championship he rebounded strongly — 10 wins, one title, and just nine finishes off the podium.
Think history won’t repeat? Whincup led the most laps of all in 2015 and finished the year with nine consecutive podium finishes — six more than the best streak anyone else could muster.

No. 96 — DALE WOOD
Nissan Motorsport, Nissan Altima
The 2014 Dunlop Series champ returns to the squad where he was a co-driver way back in 2009-10 in its pre-Nissan, Kelly Racing era.
Has shown flashes of pace in his two season in the main game — and, don’t forget, has finished on a V8 Supercars podium — and hopes to improve on a tough 2015.

No. 97 — SHANE VAN GISBERGEN
Red Bull Racing Australia, Holden Commodore VF
The prospect of the talented 26-year-old Kiwi in a factory Triple Eight car has some giddy with excitement. Others fear he will run off with the title.
Whichever way you spin it, however SVG’s switch pans out it will be exciting to watch.

No. 111 — CHRIS PITHER
Super Black Racing, Ford Falcon FG X
10 years since making his first start in the Dunlop Series, the 29-year-old will finally make the fulltime debut in the main game.
He will be in one of the best cars, too; a Prodrive-built Ford, a sister of the car which won last year’s title.

No. 222 — NICK PERCAT
Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport, Holden Commodore VF
Percat will once again be the magician of the category, making something out of nothing and furiously punching above his team’s weight.
The LDM cars showed promise at times last year, and Percat’s speed is now allied to enough experience to make hay even when the sun is shining.

No. 888 — CRAIG LOWNDES
TeamVortex, Holden Commodore VF
What more can be said about V8’s evergreen veteran? The 41-year-old was at his best last year, winning a sixth Bathurst 1000 but falling just short of the championship.
Lowndes moves out of the Red Bull garage this year but stays at Triple Eight, running the team’s third car in Caltex colours.
The team have split him from race engineer Grant McPherson, instead pairing him with French guru Ludo Lacroix as he continues his pursuit of a fourth career V8 title.

For the first time this year Gearhouse has also designed and installed a completely new digital communications system for all of the teams and the TV production crews. In part due to the government’s frequency sell off, Gearhouse migrated all the communications from analogue to digital so all the frequencies could be managed efficiently and effectively. Gearhouse bring back all the comms from the cars to the pits and to the TV production crews by using the fibre optic network that they install around each racetrack. - See more at: http://www.gearhousebroadcast.com/blog/2015/03/gearhouse-broadcast-brings-new-dimension-to-v8-supercars/#sthash.Oz1UNxRs.dpuf

MARINE RADIO NSW

Hello and welcome back....Marine radio can be broken into 3 parts = 27mhz, Marine VHF & HF band.
27mhz band also known as Marine CB Band

27 MHz is the main frequency used by recreational boaters and the volunteer services because of its low cost and its suitability for use in enclosed waters where the majority of recreational boaters operate. This radio provides a range of 10 -15 nautical miles which is usually limited to line of sight.
27 MHz radios allow ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication with the volunteer services. 27MHz radios are capable of transmitting distress alerts, receiving weather forecasts and marine safety information provided that the vessel is operating within the coverage area and times of the volunteer services.
The National Volunteer Marine Rescue Committee has decided to discontinue the monitoring of distress, urgency and safety channels on the 27 MHz band from 2015.


FREQUENCIES
ch 72 = 27.720 ship-ship, ship-shore
ch 82 = 27.820 ship-ship, ship-shore
ch 86 = 27.860 ship-ship, ship-shore
ch 88 = 27.880 distress, safety & calling
ch 90 = 27.900 non-commercial service
ch 91 = 27.910 non-commercial service
ch 94 = 27.940 non commercial service, club events & services
ch 96 = 27.960 non-commercial service
ch 98 = 27.980 surf life saving, volunteer coastal patrol, various rescue groups




MARINE VHF BAND
VHF radios have a better range and clarity than 27 Mhz radios but are slightly more expensive. The Uniform Shipping Laws (USL) Code states that effective VHF coverage only extends to 20 nautical miles from a shore station but may be as far as 30 nautical miles under some circumstances, such as where repeaters are used.
VHF also allows ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communications with the volunteer services and the three port corporations. This radio is therefore capable of transmitting distress signals, receiving weather forecasts and marine safety information.
Modern VHF radios have the additional feature of Digital Selective Calling (DSC) that allows distress alerting at the push of a button. Urgency and routine alerts, (such as position reporting) are also available to DSC users. To utilise the full range of features in a VHF DSC radio it must be interfaced with Global Positioning Service (GPS) equipment and programmed with a Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI).

Users of VHF radio must hold (or be supervised by a holder of) a minimum of a Marine Radio Operators VHF Certificate of Proficiency. For details how to obtain this qualification, contact your local Marine Rescue NSW Unit.
Due to the discontinuing of distress, safety and urgency monitoring of 27 MHz by volunteer marine rescue agencies Australia-wide, boaters are encouraged to purchase VHF radio equipment and ensure they are appropriately certified for its use.


VHF Channels and their use:
Channel 16 – for distress and calling. Always change to another channel after calling
Channel 67 – supplementary distress and calling channel. Also used for safety broadcasts.
Channel 73 – mostly used for vessels talking to a Marine Rescue NSW shore station
Channel 72 and 77 – for ship-to-ship working. Use this to pass messages between vessels.
Channel 21, 22, 80, 81 & 82 – repeaters. Used for passing information about vessel movements and the safety of vessels and persons. Keep messages as brief as possible (no more than one minute in total) and DO NOT use these channels for chatter. Not all channels are available in a given area. Ask your local Marine Rescue NSW Unit for more information.

HF coverage is highly variable and dependant on a number of factors such as atmospheric and weather conditions and the power of the HF radio that is being used. Generally speaking HF coverage is up to 200 Nautical miles but under certain circumstances can be considerably more.

MOBILE ONE ANTENNA'S

Hello and welcome back..... I am often asked about Receiving (scanner) antennas and to which one is the best, often when you buy a new receiver, the antenna was just an afterthought, meaning you pay for the radio not the antenna... Yes it came with it, but its usually not that good.
A great example was when I brought a Alinco DJ-X3 wideband communications receiver and inside the box was a little grey bit of rubber that resembled an antenna, so I put it on my radio and waited and waited and waited.... Nothing.
So I connected a SMA to BNC adapter and hooked it up to my Mobile One SCATX scanner antenna (below) on my roof and ...WOW. The Radio came alive.


VHF lowband - NPWS = 77.700 was excellent... little static
Airband - Sydney radar  = 124.550 = clear
UHF - State Rail - 450.050 - clear with a little static
Marine band - marine rescue - 154.575 - very clear

These are some frequency's that I pick up in the first few seconds using this great, well built antenna.

Mobile One is an Australian company and make various antenna's for Australian conditions, they have been doing this since 1973.
Whether your after Handheld, Base or Mobile these antennas have stood the test of time, I should know, I have been using their antenna's since I started getting interested in radios when I was 16 (1986) (seems like yesterday)


Mobile One's prices are excellent because you can buy directly from the manufacture.... Yes, they make all their Antennas in their factory at Camden NSW, No cheap crap from China. (sorry China)

The range of Antenna's in mind boggling but is well set out on their website.... CLICK HERE

Mobile One makes and sells Antenna's for Mobile phone setups, CB Radio both 27mhz- 477mhz, Airband, Amateur radio, Marine, AM-FM Radio, Digital TV Antenna's and of course Radio Scanners.

Excellent Tip = The simplest way of putting a scanner antenna on a house is with the use of a magnet mount upside down on the guttering of the house

Give  Mobile One a call on 02-46556677        International = +61 246556677
OR VISIT THEIR WEBSITE = http://www.mobileone.com.au/antennas/m1antennas.html

Don't forget to tell em Radio Communications NSW sent you :)

Remember behind every great man is a great woman, as it is so with radios..... behind every great radio is a great antenna.... or so the song goes.
