Welcome to the forum.
You will find that most people are reluctant to share details, especially of things like shopwatch, without knowing who they are sharing it with.
We all spend time building up our databases & then people pop up who want security sensitive frequencies on their first post, who normally never make a post, apart from that single "I want" post.
Now add to the above, people with cheap ebay transceivers who are damaging our hobby. This is a forum for scanning enthusiasts. So we listen with scanners, which are receive only radios & we all know that giving people with transceivers the details needed to listen to shopwatch can also allow those same people to pirate on those frequencies & thus damage our listening.
So welcome to the forum, but how about sharing a few of your own discoveries before asking for security sensitive information? As for all we know you could be a shop lifter wanting to exploit the system, a pirate with a tranciver, or someone only interested in taking information but not sharing it.

Agree with the above. I am in a few Facebook groups and they are full of requests from people wanting freqs but as you say, have never posted their finds but ask for Shopwatch and Pubwatch freqsvwith CC, slot numbers etc so that they can program them into a cheap Chinese transceiver. If you suggest the range of freqs for them to search with their scanner they complain as they haven't got one or just can't be bothered.

Most freqs are in the WTR so are hardly secret and even if not SW and PW freqs are normally easy to find if you simply wish to monitor.

It may be that the way forward will be to restrict this and other groups to those who can demonstrate their genuine interest in the hobby and then members may be lest reluctant to share finds.

Hull SW and PW is very easy to track down with a little effort for anybody who is genuinely into the hobby.&

Sorry to add to the negative responses but have you tried using the SEARCH facility on your scanner?
This is, after all, a hobby and there is fun to be had in chasing down the elusive frequencies.
Good luck with your efforts.

Agree with above. Suspect that most who ask questions haven't bothered to search or have a toy Chinese radio and can't so expect others to find the freqs for them.
