BTFire21,

This is awesome!! What's your radio/antenna setup? Do you have any tips for quickly locating the active frequencies for a given flight? I will likely have an opportunity to listen in when the debate is held in Nashville and I want to be prepared.

Thanks in advance!!

Will you be in/near Nashville? Highly doubtful you’ll wrangle it in from Texas. If yes to question try 260.9, 228.9, 364.2, air to air prob depends on which unit gets the CAP duties IF there is one in the first place.

Since when did the civil air patrol (CAP) start using frequencies in the 200 and 300mhz bands? I thought they could only use the 143ish, 141 and 148ish frequencies.

This CAP stands for Combat Air Patrol. Military a/c protecting assets that are on the ground. These a/c will also use the 138 - 143.975MHz band and 148 - about 150.8MHz band, mostly in the AM mode. The above mentioned freqs are the more common ones used.
