Hello again Frank.

Look in the RR database. Both of the Offutt TRS's are listed. You will want to check out the new
APCO 25 system that was recently built.

As far as flight operations during the show, I will have to defer to someone with expertise in that area of the spectrum.

Have a nice time. Regards, Obijohn

Usually there is some use of the Event talkgroups on Sarpy with Fire and Police. So you might listen to those too.

If I was a betting man I would have my money on Sarpy's Event 5 & 6 for Airshow Interop trafic......

Ham frequencies

Additionally there will be a contingent of ham radio operators on base helping with safety and communications. They will be using the following frequencies: 145.115 (PL 179.9) with 145.235 (no PL) and 147.060 (PL 131.8) as backups.

147.06(+) transmits a DPL of 051, and needs the 131.8 to access it.

T-Bird Freq's

When I went to the AF Thunderbirds demo in Cheyenne for Cheyenne Frontier Days (July 23rd)
the T-Birds used 143.7 for the Diamond Formation and 235.25 for the Solo's, these are AM.

Let us know how the show turns out and what you heard.
