I searched a few on your list and found matches for Illinois area. Try again.

What database are you talking about ? Presumably the RadioReference one on this website ?

Using the frequency search function and selecting the "Entire Database" all the frequencies you list come up.

Are you hearing these from Peoria ?

132.875 - Kansas City Sector 90
135.550 - Chicago Sector 61
125.575 - Chicago Sector 94
130.425 - Company frequency ?
119.475 - Kansas City Sector 30
135.075 - Comes up with multiple matches but none in range of Peoria

Normally Chicago Sector 61 uses 121.375. If you hear traffic on 135.550 again and happen to note the time and a flightnumber any chance you can post it hear so I can verify the sector ? Same for 135.075 as all frequencies listed are not in range of what you could hear in Peoria.

Yes the RR database. I dont know any others. I am using a mobile antenna mounted on phone books. It is a 800MHz Maxrad but it works great in the VHF band. I also used my shortwave radio hooked up to a longwire. When I get back home I will give it a listen again. Yes I am hearing it from Peoria. Listening from my home.

I actually found it in the RR database myself. I matched it up to the guys list of what he did for me.
The RR database, while good, is not always correct or up to date. So it would be helpfull, if it's not too much trouble, if you could provide more info. on what you heard, especially on 135.550 and 135.075.

Last time I checked 135.550 was a backup frequency and might be used in a different sector than what is listed in the database or maybe they have changed the primary frequency (which was 121.375) ? And the RR database does not list any sectors that are actually inrange of Peoria on 135.075 so I'm kinda curious what you heard ?

All I need to know is the time and a flightnumber and I can probably confirm the sector.

Ok. I will give 135.075 and 135.550 a listen again and see what I hear. Do they usually say the flight number when they first talk? I dont understand what aircraft say half the time expect how high they are.

It is a little fuzzy but I heard 37 and 39 on 135.550. Still did not hear a center :confused:.

They will check on the frequency with their callsign, flight number and altitude.

eg: "Chicago, United 1532 at flight level 360"

When they get the handoff to the next frequency they should read it back (although not all pilots will readback the frequency they will just acknowledge with their callsign).

"United 1532, 133.75" (United flight 1532 switching to frequency 133.75). Some pilots will omit the 1 and read the frequency back as 33.75.

So if you can give me a callsign and flightnumber that you hear as well as the altitude, and especially helpful would be any handoff frequencies, I'll be able to tell what sector it is.

I will give it a listen again when it is anther nice day and see what I hear. The weather probley made the plans sound fuzzy. The thunder storms probley made it fuzzy.

You can usually hear every ATCC site in your state so I would try to search that frequency in the Chicago,Indianapolis, Memphis and Kansas City Centers

If you ;live near the border of another state I would program the frequencies closest to your state border. You'd be surprised on what you hear. Like I said I live in Northern NJ and can hear 90% of the NY ATCC frequencies
Ok thank you. I didnt know that! I will do that.
