Lovely shot!  Hard to believe it was mid-October today, after two days of constant rain.

Newtownards Radio changed to 128.305 today as part of the 8.33 kHz channel-spacing project.  Thanks to NISPOT for the heads-up!

https://www.caa.co.uk/General-aviation/Aircraft-ownership-and-maintenance/8-33-kHz-radios/

Technically the channel number became 128.305 but the oscillator frequency remains 128.3000 MHz ( see example attached ).  The next highest valid channel number would be 128.310 which corresponds to a frequency of 128.3083.  8.33-compliant radios 'know' this in the background.  Welcome to post-postmodernism, where everything is an abstraction!
