    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.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Hello all,

I spent some time yesterday (Saturday 3-14-08) out at the Albany Airport Observation parking lot doing some VHF-Air band logging. Here is the list of what I heard, with stations that I was able to identify by on-air transmissions. I don't usually monitor VHF-Air, so some of you may know what all of these frequencies are assigned for.

118.050 - Albany Airport Approach

118.425

120.450 - Albany Airport ATIS

120.625

121.350 - Boston Center

122.850

123.950

125.325

125.350

125.575

126.475

127.500 - Albany Airport Departure

128.325 - Boston Center

129.550

130.950

132.175

132.300

132.600

132.650

132.825 - Albany Airport Approach (Class C Airspace)

133.125

133.425

134.000

134.600

134.950 (pilot had a british accent)

135.250

135.325

135.700

135.800

One note - I had always thought that Albany Approach was primarily on 125.000, with an alternate channel of 118.050. However I did hear traffic on 132.825, and the ATIS broadcast advised Class C approach was on 132.825. How long ago did that change?

Also, if you listen in to 115.000 you can hear ALB's ATIS
I live in Halfmoon and I can always hear their ATIS, but I have to listen clostly as its muffled, but its great that it has that much coverage
