Cool Helo air to air freq

If the weather gets good enough for copters to start flying I would start with
The frequency of 123.025 am it is a very common rotary wing air to air freq used throughout
front range. Also try 123.05 am.
These freqs are used by medevac and news copters to give position and intentions to each
other.

73, Rex

I just heard them say they were working on 123.12 but when I put them in it comes out 123.116666. So are we not able to pick this freq. up?

123.12 in aviation speak is 123.125 so you will be able to pick it up

Default Air-to-Air Flood Frequencies

Helicopters are having a hard time getting into the area today due to low ceilings, rain, and clouds all the way to the ground in some areas. The ones I am monitoring are using military frequencies. The have just called to RTB. I presume they came out of Buckley.

Regarding the event frequencies, the federals teams have instituted their own radio systems using primarily VTAC channels. They.ve airlifted their own repeaters to various mountaintops. This frequency system is dynamic and changes hourly.

They have also intituted a system identical to the one they use in fighting forest fires. They have an Air Attack twin engine aircraft (Beech King Air, etc) flying the CAP at 10,000 feet. The Boulder County frequency yesterday for him was 123.125 and his counterpart over Larimer County was on 123.975.

The FM frequencies for these two locations for Air-to-Ground coordination was 166.85 for Boulder and 166.9125 for Larimer County.

I have not heard any activity yet on the event air frequenices as not aircraft have arrived yet.

Have been hearing some air to air helicopter traffic (NG or regular Army) at 308.100 mhz. Obviously involved in rescues around Lyons and Estes Park.

Can someone tell me where the chinooks are coming from? What base? Army, airforce? I see them in Loveland head north toward Fort Collins.
