Try this guys happened to have saved a link and the link seems to work for me, so it is alive to some level and up to date, before it was not updating

split all the good stuff out into separate excel sheets

import each one as a layer into mappoint and give it a different colour pin *simples*

(thats what Ive done - but didnt show it in the picture)

What i find funny is we are not allowed to listen to these frequencies but they give us a database to find them....

Don't forget spectrum trading. It allows you to see who 'owns' a frequency, and then offer to buy their frequency and trade it. Can't buy what you can't see? Openness and transparency.

The link is fine - it's the data that's not! Just put in your local area on the map and then compare that to real life. So many aerials you see are missing, and if you ask it for the list you get returns in the thousands, nine of which seem to have any link with your areas at all?

As long as you are looking for Business Radio, Technically Assigned data you should have no problem, just did a local search and it presented the expected results..

Not around here sadly - my location, distance 10Km, brings back just a small number of technically assigned licences, and then if you click on the blue ones where there are multiple users, instead of the old details of each individual licence and frequency, you now get hundreds of results.
