Where did you get these frequencies from?
The OFCOM site seems to have been made even less useful than it used to be, you end up going round in circles thru endless pages of woffle!

As far as I know the licence types are called (though OFCOM themselves seem to change these!):
- Simple Site
- Simple UK
- Suppliers Light
https://secure.ofcom.org.uk/busrad/ (only found via Google, Christ knows how you find it on OFCOM's site!)
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

Some info here: http://blog.radiotronics.co.uk/ including that on additional Simple Site Licence frequencies. I agree: the OFCOM website, like most of their customer facing functions/staff, is completely useless. AFAIK, none of the existing business radio users have been informed about the UHF2 Simple UK changes.

Thanks. Considering it was allegedly 'published' in May 2017, it certainly slipped under the radar.

Most of the 458 MHz freqs are still busy with telemetry stuff around me, so this seems a somewhat bizarre decision by OFCOM.
Maybe those will get moved, but why was this not done first, before announcing the new frequencies?

458.7875 heard in use in london theres a lot of telemetry below 458.7875 but none of it is above 458.4000 until you get to 463.0000 so telemetry shouldnt interfere with them from 458.7875 to 458.8250 MHz

Will we likely find anything on these simple site frequencies or will it be in the future. Will they more than likely be digital when used which I am assuming can not be heard using the 125xlt?

The image you posted above are low power simple site not to be mistaken with simple light

See the first post of this thread for all the current simple light frequencies and they are popular with a mix of analogue and digital but mostly analogue users. tho digital is taking over more.

Weatherspoons seem to have simple site licences at some of their pubs & I also have a Christian fundamentalist so called Church near me that has a simple site licence too. So if it is worth listening will depend upon where you live & what is around you & what radios they use is up to them. So yes they could be digital, but they could also be using analogue, or a mixture of both.

Currently you will see the new users of the 458 frequencies are almost 100% people who were using the 449 simple frequencies

I say this for 2 reasons. The first because there are no fixed simple radios being sold yet (mitex etc etc) with these in yet so they will be people who have received notice via ofcom and have added them to replace the 449 ones they were using to their existing programmable radios.

The second reason is that is what we have done with ours. We started with 446 which got too congested and idiots cutting in. Moved to 449 simple but now they are getting congested so we reprogrammed with the 458 frequencies. Have not yet noticed anyone else other than us using them yet and have been closely monitoring them.
