Never seen any of them with a radio, who would they be talking to?

Whoever is outside the van asking whoever is in it to unlock the doors to let them or the money in, just an absolutely sheer guess.... I got a hit of 447.875 off a G4S van once.

Never see them much without a radio but they may be coz am in the city of london. usually in the same place as the police or sometimes on the belt. they also mostly have a rubber duck type antenna on the van which is i guess on the same frequency as no control or anything else i know of they talk to unless its for data/tracking?

Never ever seen a cash van single crewed mate ever. there is one guy with the cash that goes into wherever and the other guy is in the van. they dont come out the doors they use some kind of security swinging door built into the van or similar. i see it all day long as driving and waiting around the city is a big part of my job.

Must be your area like you say. Up North we must differ. I know the vans did have GPS antennas for tracking but i expect thats done via 4G now.

I used to work in a shopping centre doing security, in there was a cash machine. I used to escort the G4S officers to and from the back of the Clydesdale Bank machine because of where it was. One of them always remained in the rear of the van out of sight. The one doing the walking bit gave a quick "Here now" or similar over the radio, door would open and he would throw the container in or have one slid out.

I'm not sure who does the security in job centres here now, possibly still G4S. but ours used 461.300 / 110.9. I confirmed it myself while in there.
