This year will be one of the better ones we've had in San Antonio in awhile, wish I could make it, but I have some familial obligations in Waco this weekend.

I spent the entire afternoon out at Randolph - it was nice to be there without all the crowds :)

The airboss frequency seems to have changed - they were on 123.100 AM today for the practice.

Unusual AirBoss freqs for this years RAFB Airshow

Lindsay Posted:
Additionally, the Air Boss for the airshow is on 123.100 AM. Airshow discrete is 128.250 AM .....

I am supprised that the Air Boss used 123.100 AM ... isn't that for "Air Search & Rescue" use ?
Also, the AirShow discrete of 128.250 AM is currently listed as the RAFB Tower VHF freq.

Back at the 2009 RAFB AirShow I recall the Air Boss being on 123.300 & 383.000 ?
So do I gather that these AirShow freqs change up every time I take it ?
I have had 123.400 AM " Air Shows Common" loaded in my scanner for years ... is this ever valid ?

I had to work this last weekend but would have loved to have gone and taken in the sites & sounds :)

ps ~ I still remember the thrill I had at the 2009 RAFB Air Show seeing the F-22 Raptor show off !!!

btw ~ What a contrast seeing Lindsay's son standing under the massive C5 Galaxy Aircraft ! Wow !
