What frequency is this ?

Postby Bobcode » Mon May 15, 2017 1:57 pm

Hi All,
Not a total newbie, had a Yupeteru many years ago but having a problem identifying a particular frequency that I receive.
I live between Mildenhall and Lakenheath so have a great opportunity to enjoy the military action !
My scanner is the excellent ubc125xlt, the frequency in question is 133.9416.
Any ideas anyone please ? :thumbup:

133.940 is what you are hearing which is Clacton East Area Radar (Swanwick Military) :geek:

to be pedantic 133.940 is the channel designation for the transmission which as bobcode says is on the frequency 133.9416 Mhz (133.940 is not a multiple of 8.33) and is the swanwick Nats Clacton east (sector 12) frequency Swanwick mil ( previously London mil east ) ICF is 133.325

t went to 133.941 on my Baofeng UV-5R+ and can just receive this channel be it very weakly the good thing is the spacing on this handheld, while on the JIL SX 200 he is there but only just well under the noise, on both the UV-5R= and the SX 200 I am at ground level and only using the telescope antennas praise be them to the UV-5R+ think I will give up on the SX 200 standby EBay its just not sensitive enough, what's it worth!!!.

Are you sure? I did not think the 5r would work on Airband, even on RX.
Given how dirty the 5r's are within their specified band of operation, I would certainly not want to modify one, even for alledged RX only use. Especially as the RX out of specified range is going to be poor & a cheap scanner much better.
