OFCOM publish freqs in the WTR, including Colour Codes (indicating DMR).
http://spectruminfo.ofcom.org.uk/spectrumInfo/licences

Try New Street Station 455.625 Colour Code 5 for starters.


Does the above site actually work for others?

If I select an area (Either entering in the details with NGR or select the square search area) I always get 1403 pages of results with the first one always in Jersey.

I have tried with IE, Chrome and Firefox. {bnghd}

You need a frequency range (ideally just one frequency) plus a map area (as tight as possible) to get a reasonable result. And don't forget that their default is GHz, don't forget to change it to MHz.

I think they use 445.5625, but haven't listened for a while.

You have to select the right drop-downs, because OFCOM don't have the gumption to exclude UK wide licences like "Simple UK" from local results.

Try "Business Radio" and "Business Radio (Technically Assigned)".

Many thanks for the reply.

I am finally getting useful results now.

Much appreciated.
