HMS Queen Elizabeth prepares to sail from Rosyth dockyard

http://www.scotsman.com/news/politics/h ... -1-4482746

Shouldn't be long before she sails for sea trials. Exact time & day may depend upon weather/tides.

Wonder if anyone near Rosyth has picked up any signals yet?
They have probably already tested all the radio systems.

HF callsign is said to be "GQLZ".

I wouldn't be surprised if UHF NATO band frequencies previously used by HMS Illustrious and HMS Invincible are recycled.
Whilst there are thousands of NATO band frequencies, some of the ones previously assigned to the Royal Navy are likely to have been retained.
These are some that have been used/reported in the past:

237.85 AM was HMS Illustrious R06
237.85 AM was HMS Invincible
241.075 AM :1 was HMS Illustrious FlyCo
280.15 AM was HMS Invincible
291.925 AM was HMS Illustrious
362.575 AM was HMS Illustrious Homer
375.85 AM was HMS Invincible Approach "Homer" (2002)

QHM Rosyth is on VHF Marine Channels 13/73/74.

Then there will be onboard comms systems, which might be analog/digital/DMR/P25/or even TETRA.
There are already crew on board so these are likely to be active now.
So worth checking any previously unused military band frequencies if you are near enough to Rosyth.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

Expected to sail later today.

Multiple tugs already in the forth.
No AIS from the ship yet, but that is not unusual for military vessels, they typically only activate AIS when underway and in the vicinity of a harbour.

Hey Minus1. Thanks for those freqs would very much like to hear the QE and will keep listening on the uhf mil band. What a beast that thing is eh? Its a monumental task just getting it from dock to sea.
