Sunday morning at 11:00 AM, the Goodyear Blimp crew is testing the HD TV feed down to the TV compound at Yankee Stadium.

Goodyear air-to-ground operations are using 469.5000 MHz, 151.4pl.

At some point the Goodyear folks switched over to 469.5500 MHz, 151.4pl. They are also testing the director to blimp comms on 450.1625 MHz.

Hello Chris,

Have you heard any federal activity?

Regards,

John
Not sure yet. There was a flurry of helicopter activity around Yankee Stadium this afternoon, and what appeared to be dark blue Aérospatiale helicopter, didn't look like NYPD. May have caught some P-25 while they were flying around on 168.8250 MHz with the Signal Stalker, but not sure. Still searching... :)

The Goodyear blimp was monitoring 126.050 MHz while flying around Yankee Stadium tonight. I heard a few other aircraft acknowledge them, but not a lot of chatter from the blimp. He did call in when we were finished to get clearance back to wherever they are mooring for the night.

Definite federal presence - spotted several FBI agents on site with VHF radios, although NYPD was the primary security agency for tonight's activity.

All Star Game tomorrow - more as I find it...

No Goodyear blimp for the All Star Game! Don't know why but the Goodyear crew packed up and left after the show last night. If you see any blimp shots on the Fox coverage, it's tape.

The NYPD officers around Yankee Stadium appear to be on TAC F, 485.4375 MHz.

Correction on the last message - The DirecTV blimp just showed up on site and Fox will be getting TV signals from it tonight.

No frequencies for the DirecTV blimp crew yet...
