Edinburgh 449.400

Post by smscot » 01 Jun 2017, 15:21

Getting very active these days . Asda security is on it but also hearing others which I think is restraunts in fort kinnaird while also getting what sounds like the builder's possibly near the jewel area. If anyone has a wee listen in and can help me find out who they are that would be cool.

Being pedantic, yes, 25Hz steps will resolve all UHF traffic, but the good news is that 25kHz will be fine for the Simple UK UHF frequencies 449.3125, 449.4000 and 449.4750.
