Thanx bigbloke and bigboyblue :smiles:

We were getting confused by the licenced listings for Storenet Security in Cardiff on the following frequencies...

455.7875 MHz
453.0875 MHz
453.3250 MHz
455.5625 MHz
453.4375 MHz
453.7000 MHz

Then we realised that Storenet Security, AKA NITENET, AKA MRS Communications are based in Cardiff so I'm guessing these are frequencies used internally by them at their offices in Cardiff?

I dont want to cross post but there is some investigation on TM1 in the scanning/wales folder

up-to-date newport storenets are now on page 24 of the main storenet thread in the england forum


I am anticipating that within 18-24 months there will be a fourth, or the kingsway one will be extended into the new shopping complex

To pick things up, you first need to understand that as a whole VHF & UHF is very short range & things like buildings, trees & land, that is slopes & hills etc where the land raises between you & the radio transmitter will all reduce your chances of hearing things.
If someone is operating on UHF with handheld radios, do expect more than a few hundred yards of range & less in a built up area.
On VHF a few of miles is possible sometimes, but that is dependent upon the terrain & both their antenna system & yours.
The above is not a fact, but it will give you a good idea of what can reasonably be heard.
Use the google search link for this site on my signature & search this site for frequencies in your own town.

Most of the stopwatch frequencies have now turned digital. Would be great to know how we can decode this

Hi all

just to say I have live in Cardiff and have gone threw all of the Cardiff frequencies and there is not a peep from any of them.

I know St. David`s 2 are using hytera for there comms but I have also noticed the all the shops / pubs have also got Hytera from Sapura for what they call CHARLIE ROMIO,

thought this might help as I am always in the city centre.

I wonder if anybody has got the cc & ts so I can see if it works,

Charlie Romeo = Control Room

Its a private TETRA system - not DMR

Roath Shopwatch is on DMR though
Queens are still on analogue too

theyre in the WTR
