I am wondering if all these freqs (- the tower, ground, ect) would be still good. Going this year and would like to listen to the Blue Angels. I have never listened to Airshow Radio xmissions before & would like to know the freqs to program in to the scanner. I found some freqs that are reported that the Blues use, but I don't know if they use them all the time or what. Any help or info would be appreciated. I am kinda new to this. Thanks!
I am wondering if there are any special freq, besides the typical tower, ground, ect, that I can program into my scanner for the Airshow. Particularly the Blue Angle Freqs since they are arriving in the area later this afternoon. Thanks!
Airnav will give you the general use ATC frequencies for HIO, but not the airshow specific frequencies. During the airshow, HIO tower will hand over control of the airspace to the airshow 'air boss' who usually uses a different freq other than tower. Also, most teams have individual freq's for for,action coordination, etc.
If anyone has airshow specific freq's for 2015 it would be greatly appreciated.
Here's a few more:
136.6700AM Heritage Discreet
466.1000 Airshow Radio
467.1625 Vendor coordination
and as oregontreehugger said 120.55 is the AirBoss (and best freq to monitor)
Tower 119.300 and 239.300
Washington Co TRS
Wash A 53520 is Traffic/Crowd
Wash B 53488 Fire/EMS
Wash C 53456 Public Safety to Airshow radio
Wash D 53424 Police
POP Ops 22768 used by Port Vehicles on site
I would encourage using our wiki to keep a permanent record of these areas and talk groups. That way next year, and for following years, common freas and talk groups can be identified. Then all that is needed is to find the new acts or changes in usage
