If you're interested in the 9th Edition of the UK Scanning Directory in an 'As-New' condition then PM me.
Bought it last year (from Maplin), used it once, been sat on my book shelf ever since...

Still a great starter resource for beginners!

A lot of the info contained within is still accurate as the frequencies haven't changed over the years.

have you tried following link http://spectruminfo.ofcom.org.uk/spectrumInfo/licences you can find most pmr frequencies
just enter the grid coordinates for your location ie TL 240 240 the frequency range and distance try avoiding uk general frequencies ie 173.0875 as you will get uk wide results. you'll be surprised what you find much more up to date than books !
