123.10mhz - Callsign "CAP Flight-228" (Civil Air Patrol), and broadcasts from a "USAF" entity
271.00mhz - Combat Air Patrol reaction, also referred to as "CAP" sometimes, is provided by the

Comment : I'm hearing it down here right now on my PRO-2006
with the standard whip antenna provided by the maker, but not on the Uniden BCD536HP connected to an external Discone antenna
In case some of you can not hear it on the new radio, try the old stand-bys!!
