It used to be Southend, but I picked it up when I was visiting Waddington in January! Southend Approach is now 130.780 and Radar 132.455.

128.95 was in use last night as well, first time I'd heard it. HeliMed was passed to it on departure, the Shadows were still using 345.075.

I'm not sure Richard, I haven't heard 345.075 or 280.175 in use today at all.
I hope it hasn't, not being able to hear the controller 3 miles away is worrying! haha.

I'll see what I can find out.

369.45 is Cranwell PAR frequency, Waddo's radar is broken, so they are using this frequency to operate a director service for Waddo/Scampton from Cranwell, which explains why I can't hear the controller.

So should be a temp thing whilst their radars are fixed.
