Slightly O.T., CBP helicopter OMAHA297 back in orbit around the stadium for the Pro Bowl today. Some FBI activity as well...

oh my god what's the world coming to?
ok what's radiological monitoring helis doing of there and what does that have to do with a high cost sport event?

are these frequencies digital or analog?
by the way ever considering private security companies to monitor or who they hire to patrol there?
They comb the area for radiation bombs... They do this at the college rose bowl games too. Exactly what Chris said...

IIRC from the last Super Bowl here, the National Guard has a CBRNE unit standing by in the event something involving that occurs.

CBRNE, which stands for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and (High) Explosive, has replaced the old NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical). Even some fire department haz-mat teams deal with CBRNE now.

Like it or not Airscan, it's a different world we live in now.

And by the way, my GRE PSR scanner has plenty to listen to. It's a 500, though, not a 310.

This Tuesday from 3-7pm, there will be an air defense exercise. Have your scanners, and cameras, ready.

NORAD to patrol skies over Super Bowl XLIX

Cool. At past Super Bowls this exercise consisted of a Civil Air Patrol or Customs and Border Protection aircraft playing the role of someone violating the airspace restrictions around the stadium. The Air National Guard does some practice intercepts. Cool to listen to.

OK. That sounds good. I've heard a lot of traffic that I believe to be related to the Super Bowl/Pro Bowl on the RWC.

The G-channels all seemed to be traffic related, but was going on all week, so maybe escorts or something else related.

I didn't catch much on the L deck, just that it sounded like Pro Bowl related.

O-deck seems to be more logistical. Nothing I can pin down to one purpose or another.

I've heard some activity on G15 related to the Phoenix Open and on Scottsdale PD A3.

Posting frequencies

Hey if you find an active frequency please post it. I know 173.550 , 167.5125 & 167.3775 fbi has had non stop traffic but it is all scrambled.

thomasbillman1, could search 162-166 to get the inputs on those encrypted frequencies, could also get the radio ids and post them here

168.8375 is customs air
167.5125 is fbi
with other frequencies using the common 293 nac (the default) it would help to know the radio id to identify the user

As soon as I read what type of aircraft will be flying over the stadium I thought of the Tom Clancy book "The Sum of All Fears." A great book, but I eventually became "Clancyed Out" (burned out on his books) and didn't read the rest of them. I wish I could be in the Phoenix area this weekend.

There's a Blackhawk-type helo (CBP?) orbiting the stadium right now. The Goodyear blimp was over it earlier, as was Air15.
I'm not hearing any intercept exercise traffic, however.
CAP was active on 148.150, PL 88.5 (White Tanks) prior to the scheduled start of the exercise.

Edit: Omaha 297 talked to Glendale tower, so it was CBP. They took off and landed from just west of the landfill on the north side of Glendale Ave.

John, I don't think it was the Goodyear blimp. I've only seen the DirecTV blimp and the Met Life (Snoopy 1) blimp over the last few days.

It was Goodyear. I heard them talk to Glendale tower, and I was right under it, while parked in the Westgate parking lot :)

I thought I saw a 2nd blimp to the southeast, however.

Right now I'm in a parking lot at the Glendale airport.
