Maybe it could be kids who are knowledgeable with electronics and decided to modify a radio to transmit on a different band and see what would happen.A couple of weeks ago I heard someone playing around on this frequency. It lasted about 20 minutes or so and sounded like kids goofing off. I'm in the Anniston/Oxford AL area,
I've never seen that in any official lists. Can you cite a source?No, that is an FAA *official* frequency for air to air with pilots, along with 131.8. So yes, that's not just a little illegal frequency, it's a legal A2A frequency, where you won't find anything but a bunch of chatter between pilots (and the occasional music playing and other BS).
Hooligan, from what I have seen, few pilots intentionally use 123.45 for not only formation comms, cross country formation/buddy flights, and when they do, they will play music to entertain the other pilot sometimes.I too hear lot's of chatter BS'ing by pilots on 123.450, but I would have hoped that between the flight physical's and the time, work, intellect & $$$ involved to get a pilot's license, they wouldn't be bored/stupid enough to play radio DJ on the freq other than maybe brief snippets ("Big ol' jet air liner...").
