Hello I have a Wouxan kg uv9d I live in Cumbria on the West Coast. I am interested in marine and aircraft. Could someone please help me with the frequencies I might need. Also a army firing range in Eskmeals. That would be good to listen to

122.75 AM (in common with other ranges)
125.475 AM London Info North (transmitter at Great Dun Fell, and possibly Snaefell)
156.55 FM Marine:11 Range Control
288.95/337.975 AM (reported, unconfirmed, may be out of date)
446.2625 NFM? Qinetic

If you are line of sight to Snaefell, these ATC freqs may come from there, but you'll have to check:
123.775 AM EGPX Scottish — Antrim sector Low (You can receive this on Holyhead mountain, and I can't think where else it might coming from)
133.05 AM EGPX Scottish — Isle of Man Low
127.45 AM EGVV Swanik Mil (NW VHF ICF)
251.475 AM EGVV Swanik Mil S & C
282.125 AM EGVV Swanik Mil (UHF ICF NW, North of Y70) (Valley stud 9)
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.

Welcome to the forum :wave: :walkietalkie:

The first thing to realise is that your Wouxun is not a scanner, it is a tranciver, (a two way radio) & although it receives & scans channels it is not intended to work like a scanner, it is intended to be used to enable two way transmissions.
A scanner scans hundreds of channels per minute, your radio scans a handfull.
The next thing to realise is, is that it is illegal to have a two way radio unless you have a licence to cover it's use. And that the Wouxun is not legal to use on licence free PMR446.
Having said the above, owning a radio like the Wouxun is not going to land you in court.
