I fell short on the page number, it's 9-20. Lots of page 9's.

This is hopelessly out of date and I question if it should even be online anymore.
It's not findable from the website itself, so maybe archive material that someone has forgotten to remove.
It doesn't even have a date on it!

This document is dated October 2009:
http://mrmap.org.uk/forum/uploaded_file ... l_v6.1.pdf

Many of the VHF Marine channels are split into two 12.5 kHz wide channels for SAR purposes.
e.g the two 25 kHz frequencies of Marine ch 63 is split into four 12.5 kHz wide channels
156.16875 NFM :631
156.18125 NFM :632
160.76875 NFM :633
160.78125 NFM :634

In any case, all these are going to change in September because most of the VHF Marine channels will no longer be available due to international agreements.
This OFCOM document from January 2017 explains:

I tried searching various sources, they all came up with the same. We will deal with September when it comes. I often listen to the Safety Information Broadcasts, they will likely tell us of the changes.

Can someone tell me what the situation is with land UKSAR ? as i heard a few things recently like they are going Tetra and also using simple light with DMR as they can use them at events unlike the TWC channels

are the original frequencies in the OP still used or is the above correct ?

What CC are they using?
