Look in the WTR between 453 and 457 MHz, for anything showing a Colour Code.

I'm in Morecambe now having a listen, not much so far, well, nothing actually. I haven't heard the university which was quite a regular in the past. I don't know if the reception is crap because of where I am or just the construction of the building. The ones you mentioned I'd like, there was a fire on Euston Road last night, the police are still there and the road is still shut off. I didn't hear any radio traffic from the firefighters on FM, if they are DMR then that would explain it. I only had the dongle plugged in last night, now I'm searching with my disco tapped Pro 2042.

I'm not sure about around here, but in Liverpool there is also gallons of DMR from 152-153, including taxi drivers. Also 158-164. I'm off to Cheshire tomorrow to listen out for more there.

I'll be back in the area (Morecambe, apart from changing trains in Lancaster) later in the week, I'll see what I can find. I'll wire my 3500 to my laptop to log hits, plus have my SDR dongle on board. I'll probably find doodly.

Only have about 6-7 dmr users but plenty of analogue stuff.

Anything would be a bonus, it's like dead air when in Morecambe, the construction materials of the hotels seem to block signals.

i am not sure what the problem is with the area when it comes to Morecambe it is like a no go with signals apart from the 424 848 office.

there are stacks of analogue signals and i too have nearly 75 from around lancaster, heysham bolton le sands and further a field.

i keep doing searches but still not much on the digital side.
