Sherwood Forest Visitors Centre

Post by nerdsville » 01 May 2013, 06:52

Playing around with DSD and DMRDecode I found a DMR signal on 166.075MHz, Colour code 8

In the Ofcom database (licence 0082272) this is allocated to Nottinghamshire County Council, specifically the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre, but now appears to have gone digital. From the traffic I monitored it checks out.

Monitored it yesterday and noticed they were mentioning Rufford Park, yes have successfully decoded using DSD and my FUNCube dongle and got some very clear audio, mind you not at all interesting apparently someone put the wrong soap in the dispenser in the staff toilets! - was just wanting to evaluate the DSD stuff. :)

It might be worth checking 165.9625 also. That's Rufford's own DMR repeater CC 1 to 4 on licence.

Also wide area repeaters.

164.9875 from Sutton in Ashfield CC 4,5,6,7
163.3875 from Dorket Head, Nottingham

All are part of the "Parks Radio System" and are probably linked as they beacon in order. No idea what the wide area ones are used for though.
