In addition, 2 new TBird freqs were published in the Milcom column for the June MT. Add 139.8 and 148.85, both in AM mode. Be sure to use any Close Call like features to see if you can spot any more - there seems to be a few here and there for the other major teams that are coming up new as well. Your PSR500 will do nicely here. If you Id anything, please add it to our TBird wiki article. 73 Mike

At March ARB this year 150.150 AM was used for the diamond and 235.250 AM for Solo's. It sounded like the aircraft monitor both freqs because one of the T-birds had maintenance problems and could hear them talking to each other between VHF and UHF

The Quad city air show in Iowa is this weekend . I heard the Blue Angels using 237.800 last PM during practice. I was not able the hear any other freq, possibly due to my distance from the area at the time.
I will add what i hear the weekend after the Saturday show.

Great air show again this year. One disappointment though was that the B2 stealth was canceled due to mechanical problems.
