I assume that you mean you recognised the voice & spoke to them face to face & advised them of how stupid they were being & not that you used the frequency too?? Given that you are posting under a amateur radio callsign & that thus Ofcom has both your home address & the right of entry to it. It may be something that you would wish to clarify, before anyone misinterprets what you have posted.
Many people who work in radio enforcement & in the area of licensing etc are radio enthusiasts themselves & do inhabit forums, such as this, as it's their hobby too.

Yes. The above UK MAINSCHEME (457MHz) frequencies are standard up and down the UK. 457.0375 is the default primary channel that most Fire brigades/services use as their main Fire ground and on scene of incidents channel.

The 455 frequency is rarely used and the 462 frequencies even rarer (in my area anyway) although as you pointed out there are a few users over here using GMRS/FRS radios on 462/467MHz purchased cheap on ebay as they offer 5 watts and more privacy over our PMR446 although are technically illegal to use over here.

On a side note as far as my area is concerned....

457.0375 is the main channel they use for all incidents they turn out to.
457.2375 is the second channel they use when out on routine things like fitting smoke alarms for people or at events
457.4875 they always use this for training

Thats how they use them in my area and although I have the others programmed in they always stick to these three channels in my area.

yes i had spoke to them and informed of the channels etc they dont use them now the only reason i have gmrs/frs is because we had planned a trip to the states i dont use them now anyway to clarify as you said and yes i am aware im posting under my callsign i experiment with many bands and types of radio hence why i have got 2 baofeng radios the uv5r and bf 888s and i tx on the bf 888s as i didnt know the pre programmed channels so i could find out
but as i no longer use them or monitor them it dont matter

i use the bands im licensed to use which is all amateur bands cb radio and pmr 446 other bands are for listening

I've never heard fire ever using gmrs frequencies either and we use gmrs

I hear them often on 457.0375 and also occasionally on 457.1375 457.2375 and 457.4875

i think the GMRS freqs are the repeater freqs like when at a major incident the command unit would have repeaters.
