Sussex Frequencies is 6 years old :/

Post by RadioBOB » 18 May 2010, 00:23

As much as I love these resources this ones getting very old and in need of an update, I refer to : "Sussex Frequencies" which has been locked , it has many missing and changed frequencies since it was written 6 years ago.

I will do my best to crunch through it all and check it out, & make a new list.
No more Ambulance Service on air in Sussex they all use GSM radios.
London Road Shop Watch now scrambled.

Forum viewers (thats you) Please let me know if you find anything interesting in the East Sussex area. PM me and i'll add new freqs to the list,
I'll be scanning too.. 73s all.

Yes, true on the Ambulance frequency, sometimes there's some data splurts.
Our local Amateur Radio repeaters are expanding in Brighton, they now use Echolink and people call in from all over the world, they can also link repeaters together, makes local scanning alot more interesting.
Repeaters:
GB3BR - Brighton 433.150mhz FM
GB3SR - Brighton 145.600mhz FM
GB3LR - Newhaven is linked to GB3BR

For a list of Repeaters and their input frequencies checkout: www.ukrepeaters.net
You can download the Google Earth .kml file to show ALL the UK repeaters on Google Earth.here: http://www.ukrepeater.net/documents/ukrepeater.kml

Currently running www.aprs.fi and www.planefinder.net side by side and the Repeaters on Google Earth.

That would depend which subtone Bob. The strong one in town is Amex with 136.5Hz, but there are others. There is a scheme in Worthing licenced to Sussex Constabulary with 107.2Hz and one which wafts in from godknows where with 67.0Hz. This has telephone patchthrough and all sorts of weird stuff.

Goodwood Estates or more locally, the Hove SW scheme. This used to be on VHF at one time. Not much activity as very few participants actually get it together enough to turn their radio on.

That's Glaxosmithkline in Worthing with 167.9Hz but it's also licenced to Ricardo at Shoreham Airport who use 110.9Hz but you will rarely hear them.

I call them parking pigs and I don't even have an axe to grind as I no longer drive a car lol. They mugged Brighton motorists for five million smackers last year I understand.

This folk are called the Seafront Officers. They are actually licenced under a private marine channel rather than under PBR. This is so that they can interact with HM Coastguard and RNLI. You'll find them on 161.2250MHz and being marine there is no CTCSS. Control is Dolphin Base which is located at the Seafront Office. You can see their yagi antenna array just above it opposite the Brighton Centre.

@wind in the antenna while I remember, this can be useful, Free Wireless Acesss in Brighton www.piertopier.net its forums are upto date so dont be put off by the front page. You mentioned a Yagi on the seafront for the coast gaurd it reminded me that there was / is a Wifi antenna in that location somewhere I need to checj the Node Locations in the forums http://www.piertopier.net/smf/

I should try and make a list of "Free Working" Wifi spots in Brighton, Free is a loose term,
you may need to buy a coffee or cuppa tea but its a fare trade if you can log in!

It was Brighton pride parade earlier today and party in Preston park. it was a very busy day.

I found a new frequency:

456.8625 Was in Preston Park possibly Special Events Channel 2 or 3
listened to .800 and .850 but nothing today, they spoke of a channel 14! hmmm

@Wind in the antenna: thanks for that CoastGaurd Channel was heard today while I was out,
161.2250 - I have all the Marine Bands and Channels pre programmed into my Yeasu.

Shoreham Taxis?? Not sure the 2 I have are :
167.3625 Taxi Streamline? not sure
167.2750 Taxi
166.1750 CityClean

Boring Train Frequencies: (not British Transport Police)

453.550 Brighton trains
456.600 Brighton trains
456.650 Brighton trains
456.950 Brighton trains

Its a shame the "UK Scanning Directory" an amazing scanning Directory book made in Scotland is no longer updated.
They did mention they have a website I think maybe a Forum , will have to dig it out, last edition 1999.
Still available at amazon.co.uk

166.1750 CityClean also 164.95000MHz. This is a funny system with different DCS codes for base and mobiles. It's operated from the Hollingbury yard with the site on the grandstand at the racehill.

Boring Train Frequencies: (not British Transport Police)
