Using my ubc125xlt in Sunderland area, will I be able to pick up frequencies around the Lincoln / Skegness area??

If so, frequencies please.

Thanks.

Distance is a really hard concept to explain with VHF & UHF.
But in general think of both as being line of sight between antennas. So an aircraft at 30,000 feel carries further than a handheld radio at ground level.
In general think of a Handheld VHF radio receiver as having a range of say 20 miles to a decent base station transmitter. And of slightly less for UHF.
You will possibly not hear someone using a handheld radio on the next street if you are using a handheld receiver. But depending upon what is between you. You may also not hear it on a base radio using an antenna at 30 feet. However you may hear the same radio a mile away on either.
Sometimes moving a few feel can make the difference between a perfect signal & no signal at all. The same is true of lifting the handheld above your head. It could be all it takes to get a signal.
With UHF, more than VHF. Although it does effect both. Objects like cars, people, trees, houses & rises in land, make a big difference to how far the signal can travel. It's called attenuation.
So in general you will not hear signals from more than a few miles away.
But life is never that simple. Sometimes the atmosphere is effected by various factors, that means signals travel much further than normal. And summer time & foggy mornings are two of the best times for long distance signals.

VHF/UHF ground based transmissions?
No. The North Yorkshire moors are in the way.

Aircraft, yes, if they re high enough.

Try the frequencies used by the Rothwell mast in Lincs:
121.325 AM EGPX Scottish ATC SE — North Sea Area (Humber sector)
125.275 AM Anglia Radar (primary) Southern North Sea
126.78333 AMn "126.785" EGTT London Upper (NE)
126.925 AM EGPX Scottish Upper (SE) (Montrose South sector?)
128.925 AM Anglia Radar (2º) Southern North Sea
135.075 AM Swanwick MIlitary (NE ICF)
259.6 AM Swanwick Military (E ICF)
270.05 AM Swanwick Military (NE secondary)
275.65 AM Swanwick Mil (E) (Southern North Sea)
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.
