Another lift chopper at the Chrysler plant. I can't see an N#? Looks like they're done for the day. I heard them talking earlier today, but didn't realize who it was.
151.625 was being used for air to ground communication. 20200801_120203(1).jpg

Many times they use the helicopter to remove equipment they can't get out with the usual fork truck and rigging methods. They rig it through an opening in the roof.

Another lift chopper for FCA. He's working by the new plant near Jefferson & Conner.
N905CH S-61 out of Howell MI.
151.625 Air to Ground. Nothing heard yet, but I don't think they started yet. I might try to go over there. Said he'll be working the next 2 hours.

N704WK is back at 8 Mile & Mound. Had to land because an oil pressure light came on. Checked it out & is back up now.
151.625 DCS 506. Air to Ground communication.

I believe those frequencies are the stock frequencies in some Motorola radios when you buy them. They require an FCC license, but I doubt many people apply for them.

Edit: I believe we use the Motorola RVM-2040 handhelds at work. They're 2 watts, and 151.625 is the stock Channel 1.
