Hi

You must forgive me but you started this threat by suggesting that you had checked the WTR but you are now asking for the frequencies so I am confused.

There are nine mast sites with three Channels at each so to many to type out for you.

All you need to do is search the band 3 freqs within a radius of say 10 km from the coordinates from the centre of Manchester then open the licence marked Metrolink.

Alternatively just search for licence 0302400 which I've looked it up for you using my smart phone.

The coordinates will tell you which area each mast covers although in practice most can be heard throughout the city.

Good luck and please repot your success.

Thanks neil , what I found was a few months ago on the wtr but never heard any audio on it so I expected them to be on dmr instead on another frequency etc , but like you mentioned they are on an analogue system still which surprised me so thanks for the link on wtr and now getting local traffic on there ;)

if theres anything your searching for around the Manchester area I,ll try to help ;)

Hi

Until recently all UK tram systems were analogue. Recently Nottingham went digital and Tyne and Wear Metro have now got the funding to go digi but the rest retain steam powered radio.

As a matter of interest Dublin Luas is Teta although Dublin Busses remain analogue.

Do I need anything in Manchester? We'll you may be able to help.

The WTR listed 459.800 as a single freq for GM Transport. Have you come accross it? What tone?

Need the tone for Manchester Cathedral on 446.2375.

Granada TV studios have 167.0375, 453.450 and 453.650. Are they still used and what tones?

Hi,

I understand that Metrolink are still using Analogue radios Moj or Neil, do you know which Frequency there are using?

Curious as to why you want a tone? Rather pointless I would have thought?

I'd try and help, but the WTR site has gone down again. As to tones being included, before I knew the tones for mountain rescue teams etc, I was plagued with interference, when the tone was included, the interference stopped.

So, in other words, it can be useful.

Agree with Andrew. Tones and colour codes are very useful and prevent interference and to identify user.

Search 177 to 180mhz for Metrolink. Trunked system so no tones.
