MCA use Vodapage when the coverage on Chan 0 is poor.
A number of Channel 0 paging repeaters have been fitted but in some areas Vodapage is the only option.

Hi

So if I had a pager that runs off the 147.800mhz I would be able to pick up the local station to me?
That easy?

Can confirm, in my part of the country, 147.8 works for fire. Seeing a lot of different ric codes though, will take me a while to work out what's what.

Which part of the country are you in? I'm in London but I haven't heard anything on that frequency still and I have left the radio on since my last post.

Haven't listened for a couple of years but yes, they were.
my friend grafter, seems like you are using a very offensive tone in the reply.
