Unknown Surveillance N.Herts....

Post by marley999 » 29 Aug 2014, 20:12

Hi Everyone,
Heard today in N.Herts/Stevenage area, surveillance by " Charlie 1" and "Foxtrot 1" following someone around local shops - sounded like DSS/DWP ?? as they mentioned case and claimant number etc
using 453.6125 with DCS of 074

Thanks
Kevin

Could be Abbey Investigations, they do a lot of work for governmental agencies like DWP.

It looks like Direct Communications Radio Services http://www.dcrs.co.uk
have sold/hired the radios, and appear to hold the licence.

Interesting that the end-user Abbey Investigations(?) can shield themselves in this way?

FYI that license appears to be for a DMR channel / slot as there is a colour code of 02 assigned. The OP said it had a DCS code implying it was analogue.

FYI they are many Analouge listings on the WTR that have colour codes, would think its for if they switch to a digital system.
