Sorry ran out of time to edit this.

I'm wondering if anyone has had issues bringing backpacks into the show. How stingy are they on that 10x10x10 measurement.
I hate to be turned away at the gate.

Keeping the current Security Posture in mind, they try to be accommodating, but you can not push the limits that have been set. If you don't want to be turned away, it will help a lot, if you follow the rules.

At this time (12:45L), Hill Tower has been trying to contact Thunderbird Control, so far no joy. They are on the way.

Just a Hydration Pack. Nothing Crazy. Not trying to be a rebel.

The verbiage of Prohibited/Permitted Items is what confused me. Guess I will find out.

A standard Hydration pack (Camel Back) on your back, should not be a problem. :) I am hearing indications that water will be available at the show. And lots of food trucks. (so I am hearing)

There are 5 water stations on the map. I am planning on taking my Camel Bak empty and filling it there. It's less that 1,000 sq in (10x10x10), so I think I'll be okay. I'm also taking my handheld scanner.

I created a radio feed on Broadcastify for the airshow so anyone can listen on their phones. The problem is it's delayed almost 2 minutes. It will be broadcasting the frequencies below. Yes, I know the RAF and Blue Angels aren't coming. I figured I can them just in case. I will also be listening to Hill Tower (127.15/263.15) and Hill Ground (121.6/275.8) but not broadcasting them on Broadcastify.

Not sure if it is related to the Air Show or not, but I just noticed that the UTTR ATIS is not transmitting.

In the past I've heard the Thunderbird lead between 141 and 144 MHz. They were flying this afternoon and I picked up nothing in that range.

Disappointingly quiet here for a show that supposedly had a half million people attend.

No Thunderbird lead between 140 and 144. Anyone know what frequency they're using? I was busy taking photos and didn't have time to play with the R6.

And having every comment delayed for admin approval is already getting old. I'm out.

I didn't bring my scanner. Was afraid of being turned down. However, I don't think they would have cared judging by the way they searched through my bag. Camel Bak was not a problem what so ever.

The first FrontRunner train in the morning was full to the max. Standing room only. Yikes. We were packed like sardines. Managed to get off the train quickly to get a shuttle to the gates, The security line was a little bit of a mess. No real organized line, but got through quickly enough.

I heard from others that did not manage to get off the train as quick as us took quite a bit longer to get shuttled over. Also I heard that the security line was temporarily shut down in order to play catchup with everyone else in line. Not sure how long that was down.

Bring cash. There were vendors that seemed to have momentary issues taking cards. ATM's were on site.

I agree. 35 minutes from post to approval is unacceptable. Those darn moderators need to watch the forums every minute of every day. No sleep or time off is allowed….period!

I had planned on listening to this, but cell service was spotty and bad in parts. At least where I was sitting using Verizon.

Don’t forget about the second VHF range for mil aircraft and that’s 148-151 MHz! The TBirds have been heard on 149.xxx before too.

No questions asked about my scanners getting on the flight line took a Uniden SDS100 & BC125AT. I always travel with them antennas off, never get questioned at security checkpoints TSA/ Hill WOW Airshow. Always worried about hearing the problems others have had. I must look trustworthy lol. Think I heard everything from the USAF Thunderbirds with the frequencies programed from the RR database. Heard radio checks for Victor and Uniform. Pre start #1 calling for canopies down/ start checks/ smoke calls/ maneuvers/ solos/ shutdown. Heard Thunderbird Control & Airboss , giving transponder squawk codes for Thunderbird 1, 5 & 6 and control of the airfield & airspace. Some kid was heard messing around a couple times on 121.600 during Sunday show. Airboss yelled "stay of frequency!, stay of frequency!" I never noticed until Sunday the 2 Thunderbirds crew on the ground with red and white LED spot lights. I assume they were marking show center, always seemed to be pointing in the direction they flew from. Overall great 2022 show cant wait for 2024!
