I'm planning a trip to Enlgand soon, I was wondering if there is a list of all radio Frequencies for the Liverpool. Manchester area..

I also wanted to know what the laws are for Enlgand on listening devices in your own home or in the car etc...

If anyone can forward a link or file etc of these numbers, that would be most appreciated.

Thanks

Garry

You're allowed to listen as long as you're not listening to the emergency services. That is illegal. Most have scrambled channels now anyways. Listening to aviation or marine frequencies is perfectly fine.

Hope you enjoy your stay over here!

Good info from David - try looking at www.ringwayreports.co.uk for more info on Manchester Airport - movements, frequencies and a whole lot more.

You might also like to subscribe (free registration) to www.ais.org.uk where you will be abe to download airport charts etc for the whole of the UK.

In theory the use of airband receivers is forbidden in the UK, but they are used very openly by enthusiasts at all our airports and without any problems from the police - basic rule to be observed is that, as the transmissions are not intended for your reception, you should not pass any information onto a third party.

Small point - as has been raised on others threads - is that Manchester runways become 06L/R and 23L/R with effect 07June.

Enjoy your visit - which part of Canada are you from?

Yes you can listen as long as you don't transmit the information that you have heard on frequency on a public scale.

If you’re listening far away (in a car/house), the tower/ground frequencies for Manchester/Liverpool will be inaudible for the most part.

Many thanks for the great info, I have a portable scanner for air only, and a Realistic Pro 2004, fantastic machine with all bands, been listening for about 30 years and still love it, even though we live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We don't get to see alot of the big stuff as we did in Vancouver, there we basically lived at the airport. Nothing like the smell of Jet fuel in the morning... SNIFFFFFFFFF...

Okay Yes I figured the other services would be going to scrambled. I also figure the same on the release of info...

I hope that I will be living in the UK by this time next year, (keeping my fingers crossed, in Liverpool/Manchester area, so hence the questions....and i will be bringing both with me.

Again thanks to all.......

I see that there are several airports around the world changing the runway numbers. is this a redesign or is it because of the worlds axies changing?

HUMM?

The magnetic North pole is constantly shifting underneath your very nation making the magnetic bearings shift - in this case from 235degrees to 234 resulting in the requirement for a runway designation change.

If anyone is interested in en-route frequencies the Manchester area ones are:
134.425 & 119.525 Stafa and Trent sectors respectively for southerly departures and arrivals from the south up to FL195 (bold freq is used in quiet times when only one sector is required to operate the traffic). Sector coverage is Birmingham to Manchester

125.950 & 126.875 Manchester North Lower (FL165-) and Upper (FL165-195) sectors. North low is the standard freq with upper being used at peak times. This sector operates Leeds ins and outs from all directions except the east, MAN deps to N/NE/E, LPL deps to E/NE/N, MAN arrivals from E/N/NE and the same for LPL and Blackpool. Teeside and Newcastle arrivals and departures use this freq and in peak time use the upper sector only. Sector coverage is Manchester to Lake district and Blackpool to Leeds

133.800 Manchester East sector handles all traffic entering or exiting Manchester centres airspace from the east up to FL285. Coverage is from Leeds to midway across the North Sea. This frequency is used for North sectors also in quiet daytime periods and covers the stafa/trent sectors also at night (2200-0600 local).

118.775 is Manchester Sector 29 FL195-285 over the top of north sectors to 15 miles south of MAN and 15 miles to the west of Blackpool. Deals with overflights in theses areas and in/outbound aircraft from teeside and newcastle with their respective descent/climb. Dublin arrivals and departures from the west

128.050 Manchester West sector, (FL195-) MAN and LPL arrivals and deps from/to the west, Blackpool and Warton deps to the S/W/SW. Also Dublin arrivals and departures at lower levels.

133.050 Manchester IOM (Isle of Man) sector (FL195-) Belfast and IOM traffic. In quiet hours uses West frequency. At night both this and west use S29 frequency.

Londoncenter,

Very nice job on that list! The only thing is you forgot to add that 118.775 handles Manchester West sectors after 2200 also like 133.800 does stafa/trent sectors after 2200.

Quoting Londoncenter (Reply 8):
128.050 Manchester West sector, (FL195-) MAN and LPL arrivals and deps from/to the west

It covers all LPL arrivals/departures not just to the west, I'm sure you just missed this out just by accident though.

Cheers

Thanks for this info, much appreciated,

Is there such a thing as a frequency book of the UK - Like here in Canada a Flight Suppliment book. and where can it be purchased if there is such a thing?

Thanks

Yes you can buy them from the Aviation Shop at the Viewing Park at MAN, but as frequencies change quite often you can very easily have outdated information. However they only cost about £3.00 so I would probably get one anyway!

Cheers

Quite a few MAN frequencies here. Not sure how up-to-date this is but this I find this site useful for general airport data worldwide (runway lengths etc.) One minor issue is that it uses 4-letter ICAO airport codes, not the 3-letter IATA codes, but the index page for each country usually shows the city and/or airport name.
