I doubt they'd 'stock' them but they can get them in for you (use as a 'last resort' if you can't find them anywhere else - WBC will have made it expensive to use that service as part of their policy of removing culture and history from their jurisdiction)

Getting back on topic, is that the Cockhedge Centre, Warrington, I'm hearing on 456.950 . 167.9? The signal is weak, the accents strong and it's doesn't very shop like chat.

I've just noticed that the Jaguar Land Rover frequency (Halewood, near Liverpool) is the same listed as The Cockhedge Centre, it could be them.

I've been listening in quite a bit since Thursday, noting everything I've heard, plus have the virtual control in use logging every hit. The WTR seems to be on a go slow this morning. I've logged nearly 2000 entries since about 3pm yesterday. Halewood is only 6 miles of a drive from here.

455.475 / 77.0Hz is Chester Zoo, they also may use 455.525.

I'd refer to the WTR but it's been shonky since Friday night. A vehicle repair / recovery service on 164.4875 / 67Hz may be Belle Veue near Stockport, the WTR only gives the address of the radio supplier.

That one has been quite active for a few years I can get it even around my qth so has a good footprint. It is at Lyme park stockport and though the breackdown co have always been the primary users for as far back as I can remember (a few years) I have heard taxis and asian users on it too so figure it is a cbs community repeater. Each seperate user has their own tone. Have heard as many as 4 diff users on there each with their own tone but at times the breakdown co seem to have been the sole users for much of the time.

I'm only here now and again, I'm here this time until Thursday, this one has been very active for a few years. I'm just trying to nail it for idle curiosity.

I have a whole stack of recent finds in DMR and FM that need formally identified...
