• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

In use at a USN Blue Angels practice flight at NAS Pensacola Florida on April 24, 2019:

237.800 - Solos
275.350 - Diamond Formation (Outside Show Box)
284.250 - Diamond Formation (Inside Show Box )

Highly recommended is the March 2019 issue of digital magazine, "The Spectrum Monitor" dedicated to Air Show monitoring. Well worth the price of three dollars.

One can search other threads for recent airshows here at Radio Reference for performer frequencies as well.

Also if your around for the circle and arrivals on Thurs plug in 255.2 it’s usually active. But the main 3 RadiojonD listed are the main ones. Also 305.9, 305.5 (old) have been the Fat Albert frequencies but the Solos have switched to them in the past when there was interference on 237.8

Anybody catch any Blue Angels VHF portable traffic? I did not hear any FM/PL activity on previous 139/142 MHz frequencies. Seeing they were carrying newer Motorola APX radios with Bluetooth headsets, compared to XTS5000 with wired headsets in the past seasons. Antenna length VHF likely, however did not search out or have any close call activity to confirm if new frequencies and/or move to P25.

The only VHF I noticed was the 139.8125 MHz and that was the ground/maint crew. I never did notice the tower observer frequency (142.6125) being active.
