Hello Mortjsn1972 & welcome to the forum. :wave: :wave: :wave:
You may find that many here are reluctant to share details of things such as pub or shop watch with someone who pops up & asks for frequency details on their very first post.
So how about telling us a little about yourself.
What radio do you use?
What do you normally listen to?
How long have you been listening for?
That sort of thing.

The problem with our hobby is many people pop up & ask for details on their first post & we never hear from them again. This is possibly due to the fact that too many people now have cheap transceivers & have no intention of just listening & people who misuse radios, destroy our hobby.

You will probably find that things like pubwatch are now digital. So not available on a 75.
One option for a cheap digital RX is a cheap dongle & some freeware on your pc to operate it as a receiver & then some extra freeware called DSD that allows you to listen into digi signals.
The above is not plug & play. So it does take a bit of tweaking, but it also opens up digital signals for very little money.

Swindon pub & shop watch is run by the BID in Swindon, called 'inSwindon'.

They have 4 live licences according to the Ofcom system. 2 back to back and 2 repeated pairs, all in uhf. Designator for 3 of the 4 shows digital dmr, so Hytera or mototrbo.

with them being dmr, and only 2 repeaters at different sites, I would assume IP site link, simulcasting both info over both freqs.

One repeater ( located in Orbital retail park) 453.0875
Town centre: (looks to be on top of a shopping centre or car park) 455.825


edited to add: all their literature for their 'bid re election' last year shows dp3600's in use.
