Default Don't Forget 123.450 General Chit Chat Freq.

Hey gang, don't forget to keep 123.450 as one of your standard monitoring freqs. This is the catch-all, itinerant pilot chit chat freq. Used by all commercial and general aviation pilots. You never know what you might hear. I get everything from locals crusing around in their ultralights to commercial airline pilots chatting about strike talks, industry affairs ect....interesting stuff everyday.

Thanks for the reminder, as I had forgot about that one. I punched it in just now, as it is a really nice bright sunny day, going up to 76 degrees. We have ultralights, and even a few experimental planes in my area.

Actually, I occasionally do a search between 122.0 and 124.0 and come up with all kinds of pilot to pilot chit-chat. Alot of the smaller airports tower freq's are in this range also. This is also a good range to search during an airshow, as is 136.0-137.0.

Another good A2A that is used commonly here in Denver is 122.75. Used for flights with multiple aircraft and for our designated "practice areas" around the metro area.
