Greg. Why would you want both transmit & receive frequencies for other peoples networks??
You have been asking a lot about St Austell shopwatch & my feeling is that we will be hearing of issues being caused in the Par area of Cornwall if we help you.

Greg.
I will give you a tip regarding the frequencies that you require for the UV-5RC.
I might be slightly out in my calculations,but you have 36580 available channels.
Then if you multiply that by 50 for the CTCSS codes,which will now give you 1829000.
If you use DCS,multiply your channels by 104,which will give you 3804320
Add all of these together,it will give you 5633320.Then multiply this by 2,for WFM/NFM.This gives you 11266640.I do not know the scan speed of the set,but it will be slow,maybe 5/sec.If this is the case,it will take you a LONG LONG time to scan every available channel.
Some of the later models even have a wider UHF coverage,which will give you a greater selection.
Happy scanning.

Regards,John.

Why are people buying transceivers such as the Baofeng 5R thinking they are scanners as they are clearly not in any sense of the wording. As others had mentioned they are so slow while attempting to scan which in essence is only for things like amateur radio when you have the simplex channels programmed in and want to check the activity, but not as an actual scanner. :rolleyes:

Scanner = Scanner
Transceiver=Transceiver

There is no in between no matter what the chinese eBay seller says, sorry for being harsh, and do not think for once of playing a fool on other peoples networks as Ofcom may not take much interest in the abuse some of the amateur bands receive but they will jump up and rise to the occasion if a business PMR system is interfered with as they pay a nice wad of cash for the privilege.

Greg when he first posted here claimed he had a scanner, a PSR-295. I think it was. But he then started talking about a UV-5R & asking for lots of frequencies & if you look Greg has been asking for both input & output frequencies.
Greg knows what he has & wants frequencies that are active local to him, presumably to use. Otherwise why would he want both frequencies??
It is also worth noting that he has been asking about airband & all sorts of other frequencies too.

These are a couple I know of in Cornwall, but I don't think the UV-5R covers these frequencies.

204.9125 196.9125
204.7625 196.7625
204.7625 196.7625

:wink:
I'll try anything once, twice if I like it.

hi John

I have found both the receive and transmit frequencies but the other radio can't hear me dose my radio need the CTCSS code programmed into it as well so the other radio can hear me?

There are too many people buying Baofeng's instead of scanners which just opens the possibilities for stupid things to happen.
