Wirral South Shopwatch - 440.8875 426.3875 is all that is listed at

All UK Shopwatch, Storenet & Pubwatch Frequencies 2015


The CTCSS makes no difference to what you can hear. Just use the frequency without the CTCSS code & you will hear everything on the frequency.

I'm a little confused if you can use these stations anywhere in the UK? Or can you only use the ones in this topic if you like in the specific area.

I only have local stations saved at the moment, as I thought that is all I can pick up?

You will only hear stations close to you. Say 20 - 30 miles at the most, as a general rule & a lot less than 30 miles in many cases & maybe further than that 30 miles on a very few occasions.
What you hear is dependent upon a large number of factors, including what equipment they have, what equipment you have, the weather, the topography between you both & some other bits & pieces.
Some national frequencies such as say amateur radio calling frequencies, or PMR 446 frequencies could be heard any where in the UK. However some others, such as say, Marine band frequencies, which are used world wide, you stand zero chance of hearing in many locations due to it being a coastal frequency or for other reasons.
What we do with national frequencies is program in the ones we stand a chance of hearing & the ones we want to hear if & when they are local.
Thus I have for example The Battle Of Britain Memorial Flight & The Red Arrows programmed in. Even if I only stand a chance of hearing them every few years. I also have The International Space Station frequencies programmed in as they are an occasional & the 10 meter FM repeater frequencies which I hear most summers & maybe occasionally at other times.
I also have PMR 446 frequencies which I hear occasionally & various nationally used airband frequencies, which come to life from time to time.
I have around 600 channel programmed into my main scanner & I can often listen for many minutes, occasionally many tens of minutes, between hits on active frequencies. Because of what I choose to listen for. But that is also dependent upon the day, the time of day & even the time of year. So mid winter on a Sunday evening I may hear nothing over several hours,or I may hear the Coastguard or an airband frequency active over a prolonged period.
