hearing irish workers on pmr 1 and 8 Teesside

Post by wilky87 » 17 Apr 2012, 10:50

Iv been hearing these over the last 3 weeks. Just one irish guy giving out what sound like crane lifting instructions. But he is transmitting/bleeding over 2 channels. Also i hear the transmissions all over stockton and middlesbrough.

He'll be using an imported high-powered handie, probably not quite on-frequency of pmr 446. It's a common problem these days matie.

He may be up in a highrise Crane which would give him the great range you mention .

yeah but even then, you wouldn't expect bleed-over using 500mW....

Maybe it's Doppler shift from a fast moving crane ;-)
