Do you ever check any of these on ofcom wtr.


All the time and I keep finding stuff not on it. If I know what it is I say so. Since Friday I have found 6 not on it. I can get strong signals from Runcorn, Warrington and Liverpool, that's a radius of about 15 miles.

The grid finder isn't working on it but Wayne is aware

Since Friday I've found 440.225, 455.775, 453.9875, 445.6125, 455.750, also 456.975 (a warehouse or distribution centre, but which, there are loads around here) all on DMR, on 456.400 on NFM which is possibly a shopwatch in St Helens

456.600 is another I've just found on NFM, the WTR gives it 3 possibilities

Cheers. The area is awash with factory security and distribution centres. I won't be back in the area until possibly Easter

WTR pretty useless for that...street names far more useful guide given the location of the transmitter

I didn't hear any street names mentioned, the mentioned a railway station, Runcorn has two, but one of those is almost the middle of nowhere, the main line station is nearer the town. I've done not too bad just using a partial post code. I've worked out using Google which hospital security / porters I'm hearing if they mention a ward or unit name. Both the Ofcom and WTR sites have stuff well out of date. I did get told off for not believing the WTR was accurate. Amazon don't have a distribution centre airside of Liverpool John Lennon Airport, they are in Knowsley, a roughly 14 mile drive away, but I was wrong...

I also sometimes pre load my Anytone and 3500 before travelling and hope what I put in lights up when I get there or pass through

Wasn't a criticism Andrew - merely an observation about the usefulness of the Ofcom SiS.
That particular frequency was being transmitted from Billing/UpHolland area last time I passed through and as such would cover a large area down into Cheshire and Murkyside

I understand that, a few users relaying via Winter Hill cover a massive area. No one source is 100% accurate. I would never buy a book, I did years ago. Even just Googling sometimes gives an answer. I've had a user programmed into my Uniden, I think it's a skip hire company, 445.9625, nobody has been able to name them. They are either to the south or east of Lancashire or possibly greater Manchester

From memory that was in use by a fleet of tippers and heavy plant rather than skips. A massive signal off Winter Hill and accents that were Wigan, Chorley, Blackburn, Bolton areas. Talk of buckets and queues for loading. Which company?...no idea, I could only name three of four in the whole country, and not interesting enough to devote the limited time to when passing.
