453.6875 In Manchester?

Post by Andy » 26 Aug 2019, 07:35

Hi y'all.
I've not been able to do much scannerating recently due to house improvements and re-location of the shack, but now I'm all set up again I find some more channels have gone digital and/or shifted frequency. I'm slowly getting them sorted out but the other day I found 453.6875 MHz DMR. After listening for a while I discovered they seemed to be active around the Piccadilly area. Yesterday they were overseeing some kind of event. But I don't know WHO they are. They were re-directing traffic, sorting out medical issues and generally doing everything. Anyone know just what they are? It's not made any easier by some pretty unreadable DMR, some of it makes no sense at all.

Pretty much what I guessed. It seemed to be a one-off event (possibly Pride) and I haven't heard anything on it for a few days now. I'll leave it in memory just in case it fires up again. Ta!

Thanks Moj. Yes, I'd come to the conclusion it must be pride as there was lots of talk about Canal Street.
