This will then set your grid reference code to narrow your searches down to your area.

Next you want to update your ofcom database. To do this goto the top menu bar and select updates and choose Ofcom CSV Update. Your ofcom database will then update and a progress bar will appear letting you know how long left to download.

This will date stamp the ofcom download and only allow to update once per day to limit the amount of traffic hitting ofcom. On the contrary to what others may tell you ofcom don’t update the database daily.

Ok so now you’re ready for searching.

The easiest way to find new frequencies is by date, click the Date(Click Me) label and a date picker will appear. Choose a month you require by clicking the arrows either way, and then click any of the days to choose that month. The day will not be actually choosen and thats to widen your search as finding licences for that particular date would be lucky.

The year and month will appear in the textbox as in this case 2020-07.

Then press the search button and you will receive a message to confirm that you are searching 2020-07 and your grid code SP i.e.

Your results will appear in the list and give you a results counter on the bottom left.

You can repeat the above search for the whole of the UK & Northern Ireland by just simply removing the grip reference code and repeat the steps. Double click the grid reference code textbox to bring back your grid code.

Search for a frequency.

Enter a frequency in the frequency search box i.e 4567000 and omit the decimal point, it will get removed automatically regardless if entered. The shorter the frequency range the more results it will return, but it may also bring in small amount of no related searches due to its wildcard feature so searching for the correct frequency is best.

As you can see searching for 456700 for grid SP has bought in 20 results. Double click a result to view its location. A window will appear with all the details and the ability to save if you wish. Again you can search the whole of the UK & Northern Ireland for 456700 by removing the grid code and repeater the search. Double click the grid reference text box to bring back your grid code.

Searching by name

Searching by name can be down by two methods, proper case and CAPS. Ofcom have entered some of the data in the csv in Proper Case and some in CAPS making searching by name a little more difficult. Start by keeping the proper case tick box ticked and search for i.e Servicom, it does not matter if you capitalise the first letter Live View will correct it. If that search fails untick the proper case tick box and the text will automatically be put into higher case regardless of your keyboard state.

The results have returned results so no need to untick the proper case enabled, although you can do if you wish to.

Settings

You can change a couple of things behind the scenes if you wish. You can change what format the database saves in i.e .csv (default) or .txt. You can change these any time you like by clicking the settings tab on the top menu bar. You can also clear the text boxes automatically after each search, all text boxes will clear apart from the grid reference box.

You can use the multiple search functions at the same time if you wish to narrow down your searches.

Get distance between you and the licence address in miles.

You must firstly enter your postcode into the grid box and press Grid(click me) this sets your grid code and coordinates. You then select the Distance calculator selector and all your results will appear in distance nearest you. You distance results will no return instantly, no slowing down of the search.

Miles filtering.

You can now add a miles filter your search, this will only show results under your set limit, narrowing down your searches even more. The current max limit is 40 miles, if you alter this beyond this you will receive and error. This distance calculator must be enabled for this to work.

Remove Transmit Frequencies.

Press the settings tab and select settings and a pop up will appear. Select the receive only and this will remove all the Transmit frequencies from the results. In actual fact this does not remove the transmit frequency, but it helps reduce the amount of duplicates in your list.

Overwrite and create new wtr.csv files

You can now either keep overwriting the default wtr.csv or create new ones on a daily basis. This always allows you to go back on the csv if needed, as ofcom do remove active frequencies. Default is overwrite, so if you wish to change to make new files, click settings and tick the tick to create new files and when you update a new file name will be added into the list and you can select that by double clicking it.

Ive now added a feature that will search secondary database for non business radio frequencies, if you get zero results and message will appear asking if you wish to search the Static.csv database, clicking yes will search and clicking no will end its task. Frequencies contained in the Static.csv are as follows Area Assigned, UK Gen, Ham Radio, Family Radio, Analogue 446,Digital 446, Pocsag, Outside Broadcast, Marine, Polycon, General Mobile Radio Service. This allows you to search for a found frequency without having to know its sector. For example ive search 462.475 and this is not a business radio frequency but it has searched the Static.csv and returned its results.

You can also manually search this sector by clicking the Sector drop down box and select Static. The distance and Date will always be omitted from these searches as they are not required. Linked licences and Emission searching are also disabled from the static searches. Mapping has also been disabled due to no coordinates being mostly Nationwide frequencies.

Key tips for searching the static database.

If you wish to find all Radio Ham Frequencies just enter Ham Radio in the name box and press search and will return in the results. That follows for all sectors for Area Assigned, Polycon, General Radio, Family Radio, Digital 446, Analogue 446, Uk Gen.
