South East?

Post by rationalgaze » 02 Sep 2017, 12:56

Long shot, but, anyone in the South East picking up the random Islamic chat on 454.7625? Constantly open with somebody chanting and speaking what sounds like arabic. Coming in quite strong to me in Essex. Any idea what it could be, even if you can't hear it?

Thanks.

EDIT: Ignore me, it's a local mosque. Forgot I had a scanning directory book back of the cupboard. ;P

Mosques broadcast on 454Mhz-455Mhz, they're known as Masjid, Azan, and Adhan and can be heard in most large Towns and Cities.

Yup i get a lot round here too in Manchester. I think it's the Call to Prayer or something like that.

Must have it on about 2 or 3 frequencies round here

Thanks. Had fallen out of love with listening for a good while. Been listening much more regular these days, though. Thanks also for the above information. :thumbup:

EDIT: Any one have any luck scanning digitally in the South East? Interested in getting involved in the digital scanning side of things but not sure if it's being utilized enough to warrant trying to listen into it. Local shopwatch (almost the only interesting thing I've got left to listen to) is thankfully still available.
