UK Emergency Services on DMR

Post by Werthers » 09 Oct 2019, 19:18

Emergency Services on Digital DMR.

I know the emergency services are using the system Air Wave as there main communication's but sometimes DMR radios are also used by the police & fire service. I have seen police carrying DMR radios before like the Motorola DP3400 along with there Tetra Airwave radios and I've always wondered what there frequencies are, perhaps the police DMR frequencies are on 450 to 452 MHz where there old analog frequencies were... who knows.

I'd like to find out there DMR frequencies so I can program them in to my DMR radio although of course RX only.

Here are some Fire Service DMR frequencies I found which look interesting I'm not sure if the frequencies would be the same for the whole of the UK or whether they'd be different for different counties in the UK.

Highly likely to be just Shopwatch/Pubwatch radios

It is local shopwatch / pubwatch dmr radios so they can talk direct to the cctv or shops during an incident.

I've not seen the 450.100 or 464.100 channels listed before. Apart from several years ago when it was a HMP duplex allocation. Listed as both DMR and analogue fm.

As far as I am aware, this is the official 'Fire Service' document produced by the 'National Fire Chiefs Council' that shows the current UK national Fireground radio channel plan that was agreed with the Home Office a few years back:

Obviously being NATIONAL, it applies UK wide I would assume? There is also a table in the document that is a proposed future digital channel plan.
