Search tips.

Here are some basic search tips.

We now have added all grids, you do not need to know your grid code for this, but if you do you can filter that grid only if you wish but not have to enter that into the search filter. Leave the Grid filter blank to search all grids.

type over All with your grid code if you know it.

To search for a frequency you can do this by entering the full frequency i.e 456.450 or by searching a partial frequency 456. searching 456. will bring all the results in from 456.000 to 456.999.

Search term goes here.

You can also search by two methods 456.450 Coventry or 456.450 dmr. You must leave a space between the secondary search. Basically you can search by any of the methods that are included in the results.

If you want to find new licences only enter 2020 and that will search the database that ofcom licences have been issued in 2020. You can also add by month also by searching 2020-01 which will search January 2020.

Postcode search is my favorite method, google the location you wish to find the postcode for i.e Birmingham City Football Club, omit the last digit and search. If the location is on the ofcom register it will appear in the results. Omitting the last digit is important as the street has two postcodes and the last digit alters, hence omitting the last digit.

Searching by bandwidth, bandwidths in the Business Radio sector are as follows 6.25 = nxdn, 12.5 normal mhz, 25.0 Tetra/Radio Mics.

Searching by name, its becoming rare that the name of the licence holder is that of the premises its held at, the reason for this is the licence is applied for by the radio engineer and not the customer. This is not always the case but its becoming more common.

How can i find trunked/cap+ frequencies ? simply search for the licence number or postcode and all the frequencies held on the licence will appear in the results.

If you click the dropdown next to the search icon you are able to turn certain filters on/off, they are all on by default.

View the result on mapping by pressing the map button, this will open a new window.
