Yes this is Macs taxis. They are based around Durham and it can be a real laugh hearing people book taxis. The thing that i dont get with Macs taxis is that whenever i hear them, they are always not able to have taxis booked, they more often than not say no. Remember once there was a chinese lady wanting a free, or heavily discounted, taxi and she was claiming they were very late and that she was stood at the door the whole time, even while phoning. :lol: If you had heard it, you would agree that she was wanting free or cheap taxis. She was never stood at the door. :o On another note, i also pick them up on another channel, although its an exact copy of the other one although one is clearer. :?:

Listening to that frequency now, but haven't heard anything yet. Should I be able to receive them from Billingham on a handheld scanner?

Handheld scanner with basic rubber antenna, I could always plug it into my 5 element and beam it towards Durham.

I was 13 floors up in me grans flat (15 story high rise block of flats) in Stockton tonight and I took a radio to listen out for these

What with being so high up and pointing sort of towards the Durham area I thought I`d get them but never heard a thing on that freq.

I heard GB3CD from over towards Crook way and GB3IR from Ripon way so I know the radio hasn`t decided to go deaf on me lol
