Confirmed frequencies, south west of Worcester

Post by apache100 » 08 Jan 2010, 20:54

I am about 5 miles SW of Worcester, and the following list is current and active during the last few months. All NFM unless otherwise stated.

164.6875 - Dial-a-ride
164.9 - Not sure what this is, sounds like a security firm
165.0125 - Car recovery firm
165.3 - security company, worcester (?)
165.4375 - security firm, only heard on my external antenna
166.1 - a hospital

Most of the PMR channels are active on and off. QinetiQ appear to use them for local trials. A local school uses them too.

430.05 - Internet voice gateway
440.7375 - ?
440.9875 - ? (possibly NIA? - external antenna only)
441.2 - ?
441.35 - Builders merchant delivery lorries?
441.575 - A warehouse or storage yard?
441.625 - roadworks lorries, or tarmac etc?
442.6875 - buses
443.4375 - railway yard
453.125 - I think this might be security for a university, no idea which one
453.8 - ?
453.825 - ?
453.925 - Worcester shopwatch, often very entertaining during shops opening hours
456.3875 - Worcester Royal Hospital Porters
456.75 - coach operator, not often active
456.55 - Malvern shopwatch
456.95 - ?
456.9875 - Worcester Royal Hospital Security
459.55 - ?
459.5625 - ?
460.325 - ?

460.475 - ?
461.2875 - BT or utilities engineers?
461.3625 - Worcester Crowngate security

440.9875 is part of Birmingham City Council's trunked net.
Main transmitter site is one of the office blocks adjacent to Five Ways island.
Multiple licences, all assigned to the council's supplier:

http://spectruminfo.ofcom.org.uk/spectr ... nd+licence

441.4 is the trunked signalling channel.

Most commonly used to discuss feeding the animals at Cannon Hill Park Zoo :-O
Heaven knows why they spent so much public money on a city-wide trunked net that they hardly use, but that's councils for you, always spending our money on something…
KEY : = channel/stud | ~ = CTCSS/DCS | ^ = transmitter site | ¯ = overhead | * = trunked
