Does anyone know the frequencies that the local helicopter pilots would use... especially for news helicopters? Is there a common air frequency that all local air traffic (ie, not commercial airlines out of PDX) uses, if they are flying locally? Or is there also a radio signal to/from the helicopter and the tv station that we can pick up? Also, on rare occasion, I see army helicopters flying over the Milwaukie/Clackamas area, possibly from Withycombe National Guard Base. Does anyone know what frequencies they would use?

Freqs. from the last published Police Call book sold by Radio Shack list Remote Broadcast from 450.050 to 450.950 and 455.050 to 455.950. You might try searching those freqs.
