I think the AA and RAC use airwave but not the TEA2 system the police,! but and other one like TEA1 or TEA3 I believe

the AA was on
85.500 to 87.7875

the RAC was
87.00 to 87.0375

I also note a note that brake down was on 202.350 that was year 2002.

Sorry but my understanding they have been gone for a good 5 years now :( , unless you scan the bands and pick up a local brake down on VHF/UHF, your look of look :D

any other TM1 member know different let me know.

Do they have radio in their van's now for radio contact. Or is it just the DATA link the AA users with mobile phones. has I was thinking they where on the Airwave users list.


Is that all the RAC has now just Mobile phones , must be hard when they could be called any where in the UK, has there are placers around me there no mobile phone coverage.

I've got a couple of breakdown services in my scanner, they're between 160-170 mhz, not much use to you as they're in the north east but try scanning around there.

Maybe those are independent companies but I thought the AA and RAC got the local garage to come out and help you anyway. They are quite active.

AA and RAC are both use GSM/3G - no radio. AA have a vehicle PC with a data modem with everything going through external GSM/3G antenna's on the roof.

Some smaller companies use radio. There's a Greenflag franchise near me that uses a shared Band III system and many others do.

The heavy recovery guys we use at work have radios in the cab, not sure what they are as i have only seen the mic hanging down, anyway they never use it as they just use mobile phones. Some companys use the fleetcom freqs as do some mobile tyre fitters.
