I can confirm both frequencies in use today, both being called up as RADAR, the NATS website and the NAVTECH charts don't have 126.175 - but they also don't have the new ATIS frequency either so I guess these things take time..

After listening most of morning 126.175 seems to be the primary freq used, 134.175 being used much less except during the early morning busy period when both used equally, still trying to get more info..

Further to above I asked one of our pilots and he said it is to spread the load on the controllers during the spring/summer due to the amount of VFR traffic...we do have a lot of light aircraft training/flying here. HTH

If it is to 'spread the load' and both 126.175 & 134.175 may be used where does that leave the long standing 'official' secondary radar frequency of 120.125? The plot thickens!

The App Frequency,134.175 now provides a LARS (lower airspace radar service.)Radar has new freq 126.175 and the old radar Freq (120.125) is now 'East Midlands Director'.Radar and Director Freq's are not in use all the time.Radar sometimes still uses 134.175.

I have just found this forum and have never been on one before so please excuse if I do anything wrong.

1.) Is there anywhere in the Leics/Notts/Derby area selling scanners? my old one is faulty.

2.) I bought a TSC-3000R scanner but try as I may I can't get it to save frequencies, the handbook is useless, does anyone have a good english translation?

Hi,welcome to the forum,you'll find we're a friendly lot usually.
I don't know of anywhere in those areas(I'm in Leicester) selling scanners,with the exception of Maplins,who,by almost common consensus,are very overpriced,with staff who have no technical knowledge at all.
I have a Uniden 125xlt,which covers both civilian and military airbands,I looked earlier today,and Radioworld are selling them at just under £110,which is a very good price I think.I've used that firm several times before and have found them very helpful over the phone.
Be patient and wait for other replies to both questions.

Thanks Nighthawk

I have been chatting to a friend who loves his 125XLT so I think I will get one. Radioworld worry me as I bought the TSC-3000 from them and they didn't help at all when I couldn't make it work. But as I can now use this forum and take a friends advice I should be better off.
You're right about Maplins, £109 from Radioworld and £119 from Amazon becomes £144 from them, BIG difference.

Radioworld can also pre-load 200+ Civil and more Military frequencies for £10 for each set which seems like a good idea, have you any experience?

BTW I found a good English handbook for my TSC on Google.

Hi,if you start a new thread in the Radio and Scanning Chat section,chances are you'll get more replies.This one might have got"lost" in the east mids airport one.
I've no experience of the frequencies being pre-loaded,but think I've seen it mentioned on here before,so you may want to include that in your new question?
It'll help you a lot having a friend with a 125,they're aren't easy at first when it comes to programming,but you'll soon learn,and I've had loads of good advice on here with mine.
It's good you found a manual for the other one.
