Hello & Welcome.
From what I remember of Glasgow, I'm an ex HGV driver. It's Valley City with some great locations for VHF/UHF & some terrible places.

Plenty to listen to down there, or there was. I use to deliver to a wholesale meat place in Bristol some Monday & Thursday mornings followed by a trip over to Avonmouth & home.
Good listening.

hey!
fully paid up member of flightradar 24...even use a raspberry pi as a receiver and contribute data.
reception isn't great where i am but have some fun scanning around the city...some maritime stuff too. building a new antenna so we'll see if it can pick up more from home.

Hi, lupinehorror. I brought one of the AirNav Radar Boxes when they were £50 last year. I live less than a mile from Norwich Airport & even with the standard antenna I pick up a reasonable amount.

Hi All

I'm new to scanning really. Can remember my dad and grandad used to have scanners a few years ago listening to this and that.
What bought me here was my recent purchase of an SDr dongle for tracking planes.( finally found a use for my raspberry pi :smiles: ) I thought I might be able to listen to them Aswell.
I live on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.
Still looking for a scanner but got my eye on the ubc125

Hello Bbbellboy46, welcome to the site. I'm a few miles north of you in Norwich & if it's aircraft you are interested in then take a look at Chris P's posts, he is in our area too & knows his local airband frequencies well.

If you search Chris P's posts on the link above, you will find a wealth of information.

Oh & thanks for that your dad & granddad had scanners,...Hmmmm. I can remember the early scanners.. :embarrased: :mrgreeny: :mrgreeny:
