Does anyone know where the Cardiff City Council binmen have moved frequency to? They used to be on 163.9625mhz until a few months ago but have now disappeared? So funny with their banter.

Can anyone help, thanks

Funny enough the repeater they were using is within line of sight of my location and is located on the ridge overlooking Cardiff to the north of the city. The same location is used by the Bike couriers on 165.70 Mhz.

I wonder where the bin men have gone? I will keep a listen out and post on here if I find anything, please do the same if you can!

My guess is they are now using the COM REP supplied by Comm radio systems, there traffic wardens use this also on DMR so im guessing the couriers and bin men will be on the DMR CAP+ system...?? just a guess but there have been plenty of nOV on ofcom relating to freqs etc recently... and the collinears and 4 stack antennas are no longer at the wenallt mast site .. thats now stripped bare ...ill keep my ears to the ground and update you once i have more info ;)

Funny enough I was thinking along similar lines myself and you may well be correct. The mast I was thinking of though is not on the Wenault but further east and it is still there. The bike couriers still use it on frequency I quoted (165.70 Mhz) as does cardiff bus and loads of others (was listening to them both today).

The odd thing is that cardiff council still have recently purchased licenses such as this one from 25-07-2016 (analogue on 166.2 MHz (heard this today also):

http://spectruminfo.ofcom.org.uk/spectr ... 4873046875)&code=408010&se=(51.34433866059924%2c+-2.977294921875)&googoffset=17.1&nw=(51.65211086156918%2c+-3.4716796875)&freqStop=170.00&unit=MHz&ne=(51.65211086156918%2c+-2.977294921875)&service=Business+Radio&freqStart=160.00&sw=(51.34433866059924%2c+-3.4716796875)&licenceNum=1088747&submit=Find%20licence

Maybe different departments do different things as the one above is for 'parks'?

Oh well they've bin and gone then, ha, ha. Until I invest in some DMR gear that is. Well never mind evansthespy, the Cardiff bike couriers are still on 165.70 Mhz and they have their moments on the air I can tell you. One of the riders is a bit hot headed (cant remember his name) and every now and then he loses it big time, mind you I am a cyclist myself and I can understand it must be stressful job and they cover quite a large area during the day from their Cardiff base.

To be honest I am glad the use of 163.9625 has ended as I was getting such a strong signal here just outside Caerphilly from the mast opposite Rudry common overlooking Cardiff, that I was getting co-channel interference when scanning memory channels with the uniden 3500.

Strangely enough I no longer get any pager breakthrough at the QTH, so can only assume they have moved as well?

the CRS com rep is commercial Radio systems community repeater... supplied by commercial radio systems for Cardiff council and other business users :)

im yet to find out the DMR for Cardiff winter wonderland staff ( contact radio communications) supply the DP4400 radios so im guessing a suppliers light licence?

they are based in Newport so bigbloke? any info on freq for these? plenty of chatter but cant locate them on SDR!

hi all

(this is my first post on any topic)

just to say that Cardiff Council have moved to DMR in the last 6-8 months, so it may be y many people are not getting them anymore.

I hope this has helped as I have tried to look for them my self with no luck :sad:

I hope someone can find them as its a good :biggrin: to listen to them.

no its just CRS as the supplier - run by a gent called Derek

and its two DMR RAS enabled CAP+ repeater systems across 2 TX sites - Lisvane / The Hayes - both in the WTR under one licence

As I know Colin of Contact comms personally you'll forgive me not sharing anything not in the WTR
