Regional Wireless Cooperative (RWC) Trunking System, Phoenix, Arizona - Scanner Frequenciesoh my god,, where are scanner frequencies to these ???
I can't pick up the airport from my house, so I can't say how often they handle emergency ops. I can say when I worked at the airport (about 30 years ago) they averaged about 1 'incident' a day. Typically on the old radio system they would broadcast something to the effect of 'aircraft due in in 5 minutes with (landing gear problems, engine failure, low hydraulic pressure, etc). Station 19 would roll out and line the runway and about 6-8 airfield maintenance trucks would roll out. Usually the plane would land with no problems (thank goodness) and they would announce 'aircraft is on the ground'. Then an airfield maintenance crew would drive the runway looking for any problems (oil spills, parts that fell off, etc.). He would report directly to the tower that the runway was clear and he was clear of the runway, then they would announce 'all clear, return to regular duty'.ok upgrade? I can't afford a upgrade on scanner I get by using scanner feeds from smartphone
but how offen the airport chat on the emergency ops on there?
I would listen to that feed. Sky Harbor was always in my scanner when I would visit the valley.<<SNIP>> My old dinosaur BC796 has no issues scanning the airport site. Maybe I'll host a feed of it since it's the only RWC site that works worth a darn on that scanner.
