165.1875 was hospital repairs at rli still is but they have changed to dmr on the same frequency don't expect to hear them if you aren't around the Lancaster area as they work deep inside the building.

166.3125 is the rli porters on nxdn.

also it seems that for whatever reasons 165.9375 has gone deathly silent, that used to be a taxi company.

165.0875 has also gone silent think it was coming from halton quarry.

it seems now that there are more distance signals rather than good local ones, guess sign of the times, luckily still have the shipping plenty there to listen to, plus you get a good weather forecast.

I hear something quarry like, I think on two frequencies. I'll post them soon, this is the weekend so they are off. The pubs and shops call sign list I have is up to 19, about 3 I haven't heard but seen the radio's, or not made out when they literally give a shout when signing off or on and I can't distinguish who they are

I can't wait to get my DMR set up sorted and an antenna on the roof.

163.2875 I've heard with dozens of things in the past. It's a sort term hire type frequency. Taxi companies, orienteering events, music festivals etc, both Fm and DMR. It's paired with 159.5875

Heard from near Heysham harbour today

Gulfmark's 'Highland Eagle' on board and loading, 456.150 / 118.8 https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/photos ... 7/#forward
Dredger Deo Gloria, 446 channel 4, I didn't catch the tone

General chat mentioning roads, 169.3125 / 173.8

A lot of DMR going on, but I had nothing to decode it, all between 453.100 and just below 453.500

Andrew. 456.150 is the offshore base not just the that particular boat.

169.0875 fired up with good strong dmr then again for me it could be any where from Lancaster to Liverpool.

457.0375 fire channel also fired up on dmr.

seems now that quite a few are changing over to digital got two digital scanners and the analogue icom r20 i think will at some point may go up for sale has the rare working rapid charger

Lancashire Fire are DMR, when out yesterday I heard chat on channel 1 on FM, it way have been from over in Cumbria.

The building I'm in is supposedly getting scaffolding going up later this year, it will probably be a golden opportunity to get an antenna on the roof.

I've picked up over 20 users callsigns on the shop / pub watch, a few more to identify. The signal is strong enough, better than it was on Fm. Despite all those on, it's quiet.

I wasn't sure where else used, I'd assume it was used where it went. I was watching it being loaded from Half Moon Bay. The conversation was between someone on board and the crane operator. I could see the crane from where I was sitting which kind of gave it away, that and using Marinetraffic. Staff for the IOMSP in the terminal years ago used to be 169.200, nothing was heard on that, I was probably hearing the DMR signal as one of theirs now. There was a few.
