Postby bigboyblue » Thu May 24, 2018 5:33 pm

Just reading this months copy of emergency services times, and there is an article in there about the fire services new digital radio channel bandplan for fireground radios.

They are adding another 2 frequencies, moving ch3 and ch6 around, and have confirmed its dmr tier 2 - so no nxdn use.

No idea what the actual plan is yet, it may take an foi request

EDIT: I lie, its here:

I was in Lancashire earlier this week, they use 457.0375 on DMR. The same as channel 1 on Fm, only on non encrypted DMR, so still in the clear.

No attempt to more away from frequencies which are increasingly plagued with illegally used US FRS/GMRS radios. Remarkably clueless. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

There are plenty of vastly underused frequencies in UHF military bands which could be shared with the MoD fire service. But that would require some initiative - something seems completely lacking in OFCOM these days.

This page also lists 450.1 and 464.1 as ch 7 and 8 which contradict channel numbers I have heard used.
