Are you living or travelling in Europe? Are you prepared for a disaster or emergency? Turn your VHF/UHF HT walkie talkie into a super SHTF survival radio with all the PMR, FREENET, KDR, CANAL-E, Jaktradio, and UHF-CB channels. The secret is in the frequency programming. When disaster hits, you won’t need to worry about which radio is best for emergency communications, because you can talk to anyone! Emergency prepping is essential for radio communications.

In an emergency, you may need to communicate with others who are using various types of radios, on many different channels. Are they using a PMR 446 radio? UHF CB? Or is it FreeNet or KDR 444? In the Alps on Canal-E? Don’t let a lack of preparation prevent your emergency communication needs. Whatever it is, wherever you are in Europe, prepare for it now by programming all those channels in your Baofeng or other type of VHF UHF radio. When disaster hits, just dial them up and talk, in any emergency situation. Are you prepared?

This frequency list is for programming VHF-UHF transceivers (VHF-UHF HT). Turn your FM HT into a wonderful PMR/FREENET/KDR/CANAL-E radio for Europe Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Communications.

PMR 446

PMR radios are by far the most popular license-free UHF HT walkie talkies in Europe, Mid-East, and Africa. They are also known as Personal Mobile Radio, UHF-CB, or European Bubble-Pack Radios. All the PMR channels are simplex. There are several different modes in use, including standard FM (NFM) and various types of Digital Voice modes. The most common is NFM (Narrow FM) Simplex. There are 8 official FM channels, and another 8 to 16 channels which are mainly in use for Digital Voice. However, many UHF-CB freeband operators use FM on the the PMR Digital Voice channels (dPMR). The Digital Voice mode (4FSK) is not compatible with FM. Here we list only the FM channels, for best interoperability with most VHF/UHF HT walkie talkies.

PMR 466 Channel Frequency List (UHF-FM)

This is the primary PMR channel set worldwide. It is for NFM (Narrowband FM) simplex, similar to FRS. Coincidentally, the channels are within part of the UHF ham band in USA/Canada. Coincidentally, the PMR3 channel (446.03125 MHz PMR Survivalist Channel) is equivalent, within about 1 kHz, to the USA/Canada Ham UHF survivalist channel 446.030 MHz FM Simplex.

FREENET

FREENET is a set of European license-free VHF radio channels. It is popular with preppers. Freenet started in Germany and has recently spread to other European countries. It is like VHF CB. The potential distance range is generally more than PMR 446 or UHF CB.
(CHANNEL) FREQUENCY MODE
(FREENET 1) 149.025000 MHz NFM Simplex Family/Prepper
(FREENET 2) 149.037500 MHz NFM Simplex Repeater/Remote
(FREENET 3) 149.050000 MHz NFM Simplex Survivalist
(FREENET 4) 149.087500 MHz NFM Simplex
(FREENET 5) 149.100000 MHz NFM Simplex
(FREENET 6) 149.112500 MHz NFM Simplex Repeater/Remote

In some areas, users have built cross-band repeaters between FreeNet and 11 metre FM CB channels or PMR446 channels. Also, some internet-VOIP networks provide remote links similar to repeaters.

Alps Channel-E Canal-E SAR VHF Radio

Alps Channel-E Canal-E SAR VHF Radio 161.3 MHz FM Simplex PL Tone 123 Hz

ALPS CHANNEL E (Canal E)

Alps Channel-E is an Emergency Search and Rescue (SAR) radio channel only used in the Alps mountain border region around Switzerland and France, where Mountain SAR and ski patrols monitor this emergency VHF channel.
(CHANNEL) FREQUENCY MODE
(CANAL E) 161.300000 MHz FM Simplex PL=123Hz Survival
Note: Always transmit PL =123 Hz tone on Channel E.

The emergency radio channel (161.300 MHz) can be used by anyone throughout Switzerland in the event of an emergency, and emergency assistance can be directly requested on this frequency.

If you wish to use your emergency radio in the Haute-Savoie region or in the Aosta Valley, it must emit a 123.0 Hz tone squelch (PL tone or CTCSS). You will not be able to contact the local rescue services in these areas without tone squelch.
Rega and KWRO/OCVS, are some of the organisations partly responsible for monitoring emergency radio coverage on Channel E (Canal E).

KDR 444 (SRBR 444)

KDR 444 is a license-free set of UHF radio channels mainly active in Sweden and Norway. KDR is similar to FRS, PMR 446, or UHF CB and the potential distance range is about the same. KDR 444 also known as SRBR 444.
(CHANNEL) FREQUENCY MODE
(KDR 1) 444.600000 MHz FM Simplex

Jaktradio (Hunting Radio)

Jaktradio (Hunting Radio) is a popular license-free group of VHF high-band radio channels very active in Sweden, Norway, and Denmark. It is similar to Freenet. The potential distance range with about 4  or 5 Watts FM simplex is about the same as Freenet, Marine VHF, or MURS. Inexpensive HTs (similar in form to PMR) are widely available. Some HTs are configurable for Norway, Sweden, and Denmark channels; other HTs may have only a one- or 2-country channel set. When all the jakt channels listed below are programmed into a conventional dual-band VHF HT or mobile radio, it enables communication with any VHF high-band jaktradio.

SWEDEN Jaktradio
(CHANNEL) FREQUENCY MODE
(JAKSV1) 155.425 MHz FM Simplex Calling Channel
(JAKSV2) 155.475 MHz FM Simplex

Sweden 69 MHz (4 metre)

Sweden 69 MHz is a license-free set of mid-band VHF radio channels, mainly active in Sweden for base, mobile, or handheld units. With 25 Watts of FM simplex available, there is potential for greater groundwave distance range than a 5Watt 27 MHz AM-FM CB. This is a very attractive new radio service, with the added convenience of better antenna efficiency for a small antenna, combined with good local propagation over water, hills, and mountains.
(CHANNEL) FREQUENCY MODE
(69SVK1) 69.0125 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK2) 69.0375 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK3) 69.0625 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz  Survivalist-Prepper
(69SVK4) 69.0875 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK5) 69.1125 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK6) 69.1375 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK7) 69.1625 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz
(69SVK8) 69.1875 MHz FM Simplex TX PL=88.5 Hz  Calling Channel

Note: The normal standard is for users to always transmit PL Tone = 88.5 Hz, but other PL Tones may be used for other purposes, or by sub-groups. The use of this 4 metre band by Public Safety radios in Sweden has been common for many years, and this new 69 Mhz license-free service is in the middle of many other channels in the 68-69 MHz range, providing interoperability with first responders in case of emergency. It is anticipated that most early adopters of 69 MHz will utilize existing public service radio models, but there is potential for future CB-like radios to appear on the market. More info: see Svenka privatradioklubben Tellus (Swedish Private Radio Club).

Many small inexpensive HTs, such as Baofeng, are sold without suitable default programming. To use these radios, as well as similar Ham radios, it is necessary to either program them manually using the keypad, or to use software to load the desired channel frequencies into the radios.

Programming Your Radio

The type of radio you have determines how you program it. You may have a mobile, base, or handheld (HT) radio. Some radios require manual programming. Most modern radios have the capability of programming via a cable adapter between your computer USB or serial port, and the microphone or data jack of the radio. Please see your instruction manual or user guide for your radio, for information about how to program it.

PL TONE

All channels in the list are default Carrier Squelch Receive with PL Tone Transmit.

For interoperability, the Transmit PL is set to default to the most common tone frequency for each channel and type of service.

  1. Have you guys looked at this yet: ham shield for arduino vhf uhf transceiver

    It is a universal band transceiver capable of mesh data networking that, unlike the internet and cellular, cannot be shut off. It also can do voice communication in 136-170MHz, 200-260MHz, 400-520MHz — which includes several ham bands.
