Much better. ;-)))wtp said:sorry about that chief, they are at punta gorda fl. i live about 4 miles from the field
they were on 143.7 and wanted a quieter vic 2 then the other radio poped up with 150.15
i thought it was easy to contact folks at mt and pc and give this to every one but it isn't
too easy.i will listen all i can today to see what pops up. could vic 2 be changeable
The 235.250 is a valid TB freq, but 385.450 is definitely not. It is an ATC assignment so it wouldn't make the official list. ;-))385.45 am
Well both of these are valid aero assignments in the newly reorganized 138-150 VHF spectrum. But were they using these as part of there demo practice or just cht-chit en route Punta Gorda? That would explain why they are using something that they normally wouldn't. Since the 138-150 MHZ band has been completely reorganized certain freq appear to be set aside for aero and others for LMR, but not both as we use to have. This would indicate that this band has moved from an agency assignment protocol to a usage assignment protocol.they were also using
150.15 am (victor 2)
I can confirm that the Thunderbirds were using 143.700 yesterday for the diamond at Sun 'n Fun 2008 - Lakeland, FL.Navairboss said:143.7 and 150.150 are both aero assignments and both appear to be used by all DoD agencies for A-A ops. So it would not be odd to see the TBs using these two new assignments.
