    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Anyone able to catch any unique frequencies from the practices?

Blues? Other Performers? Air Boss Freq and Discreet Comms?

I have several but I'm seeing if anyone else out there has something as I was not able to get. I've been doing a lot of digging as well on the other sub forums and what not. Thanks!

If you're reading this and would like me to share what I found today let me know. I think listeners at shows are a rarity today but I loved it. Air Boss was very active.

Blue Angels @ Fargo Air Sho 2018

All blues frequencies were posted already publicly that I found in heavy use and I labeled them so in my scanner, I put in all that I could find potentially in use this year and had great success monitoring. I will also include hits for each.

Found Freq's Here:
Abbotsford International Air Show Frequencies - CQCQ.ca - Canadian Amateur Radio forum Canada - Canadian Ham Radio forum Canada
https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?aid=7836

*237.8000 Solos Out of Box - very active and funny chatter. Ref show box for when they are in the box but they immediately switch out. CHANNEL HITS: 271

*246.5000 Comm 20 - negligible if anything CHANNEL HITS: 0

*251.6000 Show Box - used very little CHANNEL HITS: 24

*255.2000 Start Up Checks - negligible if anything CHANNEL HITS: 0

*289.8000 Air Refueling - nothing all weekend

*142.1625 Ground Alpha (CTCSS 67.0) - Only really used right before the show, I struggled to get these to come in clearly my weekend but was only using the duck that came with my pro-651. CHANNEL HITS: 22

*139.8125 Ground Bravo (CTCSS 67.0) - Active a decent amount during the airshow day, likely their main comm channel. I struggled to get these to come in clearly my weekend but was only using the duck that came with my pro-651. I could hear chatter but it was tough to get anything really. CHANNEL HITS: 42

*141.5625 Ground Charlie - negligible if anything CHANNEL HITS: 0

*123.1000 VHF 1- negligible if anything CHANNEL HITS: 1

*123.4000 VHF 2- negligible if anything CHANNEL HITS: 2

MISC FREQ'S:

*125.125 Air Boss: -pretty much used for all comms and airshow coordination, I don't think there is a discreet freq that I am aware of. I signal stalked often. CHANNEL HITS: 86 (low because it doesn't include ba practices and I didn't need to have it on all weekend really)

*127.350 Minneapolis Center ATC - Signal Stalked CHANNEL HITS: 23

*129.450 Jump Fargo (skydiving) unsure - Signal Stalked CHANNEL HITS: 58
