Not much happening on the North East Forum?

Post by Radmad »

Hello all, I've noticed there is very little activity on this part of the forum.

I'm in Gateshead & new to scanning, used to have 100's of CB's back in the day....

Just wanted to say Hi. So "hi"
AOR 8600 MK2, Yupiteru MVT7100, Royal Discone 25-2000 and literally no idea what I'm doing!

Way back when......... North of the Tees was County Durham and South of the Tees was North Yorkshire, apparently the little village of Nunthorpe is trying to ditch Teesside/Middlesbrough and wants to re-join North Yorkshire lol

Not any more lol

Billingham and Stockton used to be known as County Durham, then it was Cleveland until 1996 and now I think we are all just plain old Teesside

That's an odd frequency. Are you sure?

Durham Cathedral have used 169.8375 (167.9) for many years.

509 is very close to the 2nd harmonic of that.......

It is an odd freq and I'm not sure. Thanks for the correction. I did blink a bit when it came up.

Ah, the harmonic. I should have guessed really - above 500mhz is for studio mics and so forth, I think.

The only other stuff I heard in Durham was a taxi firm with very chatty cabbies and a music-player on high band.

See if we can jump start this thread once again!
Most of the frequency lists posted are well out of date now.
Does anyone have a relatively up to date list?
Maybe a few frequencies for us newbies to listen in to?
I've had a look around the web and it seems the Newcastle/Gateshead area in particular are sparsely covered.
