For military in your location I'd start by listening to:

125.225 MHz RAF Valley LARS
129.525 MHz RAF Warton LARS

Then I'd go to this thread - viewtopic.php?f=10&t=81 - and copy in all the Valley, Warton and Mona frequencies.

I'd also add the ARA13 frequencies - air-to-air refuelling track 13, see ... rspace.pdf

I'd join and double-check the frequencies/lists above against their generally more up-to-date and comprehensive lists.

If I was really keen, I'd get a Planeplotter subscription (and/or set-up your own ads-b receiver) and watch to see which aircraft are in the area and then research their squadron frequencies.

You might be as far as land travel goes but for air traffic you are sitting under some major air corridors - including Europe to North America routes. Several North Atlantic Tracks start just west of you. With a decent loft antenna you could pick up traffic at 30,000 ft within a radius of 200 miles

243.450 RED ARROWS Air-to-Air Primary (Main channel)
242.200 RED ARROWS Atc
232.050 RED ARROWS Secondary Channel
309.600 RED ARROWS (long distance flights)

I'd take most af that with a pinch of salt.
I've only ever heard them on 243.45, and since that will be allocated by NATO exclusively to them, they are unlikely to need any other air to air freq in the UK.
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.

I think 232.050 is allocated to the reds as a back up freq when 243.450 cannot be used due to interference or if they need a second channel and I cant back that up with a link but got it from a good source. That being said I have listened to them often and only ever heard them on 243.450 and also the atc freq of the airspace they are in.
