Military frequencies NE England

Postby Radiodud3 » Fri Jun 23, 2017 1:58 pm

Hi guys, I'm looking for some military frequencies in the north east. unfortunately, I cannot find anything I can listen to. I tried to listen to Coningsby and I only get static. Are there any interesting military frequencies in the North East? I'm interested in Air to Air, Navy and Army transmissions. Additionally, could anyone name a frequency fo the regional air control? Thanks

Swanwick Mil NE

135.075 ICF VHF (Initial Contact Frequency) (May be used by civil flights at times)
277.775 ICF UHF (tx at Great Dun Fell in Cumbria)

Others:
275.5
284.675

284.6 Newcastle Approach (when military aircraft doing Practice Diversions)

No freqs assigned to Navy specifically in NE AFAIK, just those assigned UK/NATO wide.
Obviously if you are within range of the sea, any NATO ship could happen to pass by…
Don't ignore VHF Marine channels, the Navy seem keen on 71/72/73/74

For RAF Leeming see the DAM on the RAF site:
https://www.raf.mod.uk/rafleeming/rafcm ... D1626D.pdf
RAF Linton:
https://www.raf.mod.uk/raflintononouse/ ... 964C16.pdf

Doubtless many Army freqs used at Catterick, Otterburn e.g. 130.025, Spadeadam e.g. 128.725.

And there are dozens of frequencies available to ASACS at RAF Boulmer. Callsign "Hotspur".

They use different frequencies each day/exercise, but some are fairly commonly used such as 363.1 373.275

This is useful for locating military sites — enable the "Airspace Details" section.

Squelch set too low. :rolleyes:

Or lack of patience? (They don't transmit all day for your benefit, and little military activity at weekends anyway.)

Or your antenna system is not right so you are not receiving any signal.

Compare your reception with the online SDR in Newcastle at http://www.globaltuners.com/receiver/17 ... -Upon-Tyne

Put your location (Town) in your bio.
