simplex dmr 173.800 in south oxfordshire

Postby warlock01 » Fri Sep 28, 2018 8:00 pm

hi all, been picking up possibly a simplex transmission on of 173.800 mhz. not sure of the location, but receiveable using the radio's (anytone 868) helical when mobile. i would say south oxfordshire /berkshire. i know that this is a wireless mic frequency. so it is a bit odd. possibly they have picked a frequency and hoped for the best, the transmission are far and few between. the only clues so far are talk of a depot , visiting a local waste/recycle yard// and visiting wallingford. also talk of a spreader driver. so possibly road maintence. i think they are using mobile radio's from what i heard so far..

With lots of ebay transceivers around this could very well be some muppet using a tranciver illegally, on what ever frequency the radio came programmed with.

hi , i could not agree with you more , in fact i have a bank of default 888 frequencys, in my radio. but this lot are using callsigns heard so far are agri 8 and 9, it seems to sound like a proper business. possibly somebody has sold the radios to this lot under the guise of being ok we shall keep listening and see. at least i can use the record facility of my anytone 868, regards

Many businesses are run by people who do not care what the law says.
https://ukradioscanning.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=3462

The owner of a taxi firm was fined £1,600 for using an unlicensed radio frequency for his business for three years.

Communications regulator Ofcom brought the prosection against Dewsbury man Rafaqat Hussain, 52, as the owner of Heckmondwike based Abbey Cars.

Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard that Brian Mason, an engineering officer employed by Ofcom, was working in Heckmondwike in May last year when he picked up a frequency that was unregistered.


Also in the same thread..

I monitor them on a daily basis and even my local B&Q are at it. I visited the store recently to confirm this. Seems odd when they have official frequencies allocated to them. Obviously someones idea to save money - no skin off my nose but it will cost them a lot more in the end if they are not careful.
