165.8625 on 131.8 north east northern Ireland?

Postby AndrewIrvine » Sat Mar 25, 2017 6:44 pm

165.8625 on 131.8, I'm assuming it is on the north east coast of Northern Ireland. I couldn't make out what they were saying despite it being a two bar hit n my Uniden. There were was a tone at the end of the transmission. I can hear it from the Ayrshire coast just north of Troon. Nothing matches that on the WTR.

I have this saved as Recovery vehicles Belfast. Im not 100% sure but i think it may be Agnew heavy recovery vehicles in the Belfast and surrounding areas. I used to hear them on a daily basis until i moved house. Maybe some guys on here closer to Belfast may be able to correct me if its correct. Hope this is of help to you mate.

I don''t have that programmed in any more, I'll put it back in. The only Irish stuff I get is aircraft going into George Best Belfast City Airport or Aldergrove /Belfast International Airport, Northern Ireland Railways and sometimes the amateur repeaters UL and NI.

Plenty of stuff in and around Belfast area but not as much further up the coast and around northwest. Unless you like listening to taxis. Northwest 200 and the Airshow in Portrush are good for plenty of hits on the scanner. Out of the bigger towns the airwaves are quiet. GB3LY can be busy at weekends. Im sure the ham radio around Belfast is busy too. Lots of ordinary companies etc now seem to be going mototrbo. If you're interested in all the currently used NIR train channel and platform frequencies pm me and i can give you those mate.

Anything to add to what I have would be a bonus. Sometimes when there is a lift on I get stuff I can't identify. I can hear NIR from here, not always clear, but I can hear it. I mainly hear the 165.175 / 156.7Hz one.

That would be channel 1 NIR you are picking up. There are a couple more for them. Channel 2 seems to be there Derry line frequency is 167.9750 cts 156.7
NIR channel 3 is 167.8500 cts 156.7
NIR channel 4 is 166.2125 cts 136.5
Also if you use mil air you may like to listen to Aldergrove on 264.8000 am, 278.3500 am, also i find 362.4000am quite busy out of the 3 of those.
Hope these are of help and you can let me know if you get any hits on them mate.

Thanks for the information, I'll put them in later and see what comes up. I'm in Cheshire just now and for the next week.

You may have the channel nos incorect.

Your Ch.2 = Ch.5
Ch.3 = Ch.4
Ch.4 = Ch.3
Dont forget Ch.2 = 166.1375 on the Larne line although the channel market post in Whitehead had disapeared when I was there a couple of weeks ago so may have changed.
WTR lists a 6th channel on 168.1875 but no idea of use.

Can any locals confirm?
