Clumber Park N.T New Digital Radios for Staff

Post by radio_ryan » 01 Oct 2013, 15:23

Well been for a walk today at Clumber park Nottinghamshire part of the National trust

It bad news people all the staff I have seen to day are carrying new Digital Hytera PD785G radio the one that cost about £600 each with the key pad.

Listened on their FM channel I have in the radio, but not a thing it look like another one gone over to the dark side :(

So if anyone going that way it unlikely that you will hear them the big question where they got the National trust money from.

Edited once due to spotting spelling mistake

I hope they changed their repeater antenna, the previous set-up didn't even cover the park properly.

The only VFO I heard them on was back to back or point to point. they may have moved onto the counties parks repeaters which some people have talked about on here.

Has for coverage I could heard them some 10 miles away at my QTH

Yes, Nottingham shop/Pubwatch use Hytera PD785's and DMR Decode, decodes them perfectly.

I emailed them asking where they got the money more and why they did them and could the money have been better spent.

All they said it was for safety of the staff and public and they wonted more coverage

I love the fact that it bothered you that much that they have new radios that you e-mailed them to complain :lol: I can just imagine the person who received the e-mail's face when they read it. :roll:

It is run by National Trust, not the council!

They get their money from membership fees.

there old one is 167.85 & 165.1875 FM but there are a number of listening of the N.T all over the east midlands. there more digital in the UHF band.

but not forgetting these radio work in both FM and Digital some they may still be FM but got a new VFO and CTCSS/DCS

No record of it in my data race has N.T. there calls are Acorn,

that is the air port repeater channels, but the call ranger I hard it used on a Derbyshire CC VFO.

But saying that, with they going Digital they could be only where. but I say it still will be VHF.

Ranger on 455.7500 will be a callsign for the Airport Ranger.

Clumber have a repeater on 165.1875 and a Simplex channel on 169.0250. I did hear comms on the repeater last week (in analogue), but as they use the radios infrequently it's hard to catch them.
