It's not 'OFCOM' because all the PMSE bands are managed by JFMG.
http://www.jfmg.co.uk
This website has recently been completely changed and appears as a very bizarre mix of "Investment & Exchange" and PMSE stuff which is completely lacking in detail. I'm not convinced the URL hasn't been grabbed by a third party. (Though it could be just design incompetence)

Anyway, freqs don't appear in OFCOM's WTR, and what detailed information there was online from JFMG has disappeared.

The PMSE bands are listed in OFCOM's Frequency Allocation Table (Appendix H)
https://www.ofcom.org.uk/spectrum/information/uk-fat
— but that is now from 2013, so there may have been some slight changes.

Most of the VHF low frequencies are little used these days in my experience, so shout if you hear anything down that way.
You will note that they are fond of using 12.5 kHz spaced channels with these stupid 6.25 kHz offsets.

BBC Local Radio outside broadcasts still use around 141 MHz, and some TV broadcast centres, but most commercial radio stations seem to have abandoned the idea of outside broadcasts, much like they've abandoned the concept of anything local except the news…. :rolleyes:

I see from another post that JFMG is now PMSE, but they clearly didn't bother to renew jfmg.co.uk, so somebody else grabbed it to deliberately confuse people. :rolleyes:

I've got a few PMSE license, and JPMG don't exist any longer - here's the letter from 2013!
Dear Paul

As of 1 January 2014 the JFMG team is changing its name. We’re letting you know as you are a valued customer of ours and we want to keep you informed. You will receive a series of mails between now and January 2014 about the name change and what it will mean for you.

So what is the name changing to?
We have taken the decision to change our name to fit with our wider company name, Arqiva. The team will be rebranded Arqiva PMSE (Programme Making and Special Events). There will be no change in the team itself. Our staff members and location remain exactly as they are.

When is it changing?
From 1 January 2014 the JFMG name will no longer be used - from this date we will be known as Arqiva PMSE.

Why is it happening?
The JFMG business partnered with Arqiva in 2011 and we have been working together as one company since then. Following the Arqiva brand refresh and launch of the new website www.arqiva.com in June, we’ve decided now is a good time to make the full transition to the Arqiva name.

What can you expect between now and then?
Between now and 1 January 2014 we will continue to communicate with you on the name change. There will be no loss or disruption to your current service levels. As with all changes in name, there will be some alterations to things such as bank details and email addresses that you will need to be aware of; something that will be communicated fully in our next email.

It’s important to us that we keep you updated during the countdown to the name change and once we are fully re-named. If you have any queries please contact me or one of the team on 0207 299 8660.

Kind regards
Carys Reynolds

Operations Manager JFMG
