A friend was in a helicopter flying over NYC. He got a great shot of the radio and it had the ability to monitor 4 frequencies, two voice and two data or whatever kthe 108-117.9875 freqs are used for. For the voice 121.500 was one of the freqs (yeah I know what that one is). The other is 132.8500 and I'm drawing a blank. Tried the database no luck

Just taking a SWAG, but would that be a VFR advisory freq for helicopters in the NYC area? We have something similar for Southern California. The closest thing I could find was for Potomac Approach, but that is a ways from NYC.

Also the 108.000-117.9875 freqs are for navigation beacons and instrument approaches.

132.850 is the ATIS frequency for Teterboro. It's listed in the database under Bergen County > Teterboro Airport (TEB)

if it was Liberty helicopters on a sightseeing flight, they have a company freq. I would assume that other companies do as well.

Most aircraft today have the ability to monitor 4 frequencies. Usually the radio is sold as a COM/NAV Radio which is capable of VHF voice on the COM side and receiving navigation signal on the opposite side. Most aircraft will have 2 of these radios; 4 frequencies total.
