Paddington not encrypted. Don't know about the talk groups but it's colour code 8. There is another DMR channel at Paddington on 453.9 MHz also colour code 8.

Reading station on 453.275 MHz colour code 5. Reading traincare Depot on 435.55 MHz also on colour code 5.

No problem and happy new year to you. Ive got a couple of Baofeng 1801 on order which should help me with Talkgroups etc.

It looks as if Paddington alternates between 453.550 and 453.900 MHz every so often. There appears to be alternative frequency for Reading station but I know not what it is.... :shock:

No luck with talkgroups as yet, there must be something I’m not doing right with the Baofeng 1801’s.... :shock:

You dont need the talk groups. Just put the frequencies in your scanner at it will do the rest.

I realise that (I took the AR-DV10 to work with me which is how I got the frequency / colour codes) but the question was asked about talk groups etc. Hence my leaving the DV10 behind and taking the Baofeng 1801 instead. In theory at least if you bang in the frequency and colour code the Baofeng should display the talk groups when the channel is in use. Possibly need to take the DV10 up again, not going to Paddington all that often at the moment to be honest.
