Army Radio Frequencies

Postby YorkshireBiker » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:11 pm

Hello all.
I live very close to a army training ground. I was wondering
If the army use radios that can be heard with my scanner.
Its old realistic home base unit. No fancy digital stuff.
When I was in the forces we used clansman but I am guessing the MoD have moved on a lot over the years.
Have they gone to a secure network I understand some are up to 2.4Ghz ?
Thanks in advance

The military do use frequencies in the clear for some purposes. PMR light/simple for example & 5 MHz is shared with amateurs & the Military. Back when 5 MHz was issued on a Notice of Variation (NoV) I use to have to give a mobile phone number so they could phone me if they wanted me to move frequency or stop transmitting all together.

They do use some analog freqs. The difficulty is finding them with thousands available.

When operating with air support, they will use AM freqs from a large pool of possible frequencies. Sometimes you can find these out from NOTAMs.
Aircraft 'Danger Areas' ('EGD###') used by aircraft will probably have several AM frequencies.

If using NFM, there are thousands of possible freqs.
The site may have one or more permanent freqs (if there is any kind of permanent control room / security, they probably do for routine purposes).
Remember that outside of urban areas, parts of the 425/440 MHz band are used by the military.
And don't forget 430 MHz / 70cm band anywhere.
Any units operating in the area may also use their own freqs.
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.

Asuming you mean Leconfield they is not much that happens other than driver training so i would not expect much. Barracks will have a UHF DMR system.

Apart from the camp security there would not be much radio traffic generated by medics erecting tents and painting boxes white :sad:

The helis that drop in normally are droping top brass off.
During in the afgan conflict Strensall was used for pre deployment training.
The helis flying in on the traing ground doing casivac.
The old REME work shops was converted to a medic training centre with part of it a exact replica of the hospital at
Camp Bastian.

Since we lost many lives and left the Stan with our tails between our legs, what do they do now on the soon to be closed base apart from erect tents and paint boxes white ?
