    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have looked about everywhere and I can't find a good source for TRACON frequcencies. I'm specifically looking for Potomac and Patuxent TRACON frequcencies. Can anyone help?

Click on Wiki at the top of this page, enter Potomac TRACON in the search box and that'll take care of half of what you need. All the Potomac TRACON freqs are there - both VHF and UHF - and they are broken down by airport area.

For Patuxent freqs, go to the Maryland forum, click on the thread "Sticky Thread for MilAir II" and scroll down through the messages. I recently posted all the Patuxent freqs (along with Giant Killer, etc) as part of a series of posting all my MilAir bank frequencies to that thread.

I don't think Patuxent is part of its own TRACON - I could be wrong about that...anyway, we have a Wiki page that's also devoted to that. It's more than a little dated, but it would be a place to start. I really need to use Tin's list to update it...

[edit] While I don't have the Pax freqs loaded, I do have the Potomac TRACON freqs loaded in a spreadsheet. Send me an email at ka3jjz@netscape.com telling me you want the Potomac TRACON list (in what format, please...csv, spreadsheet, ARC250, others? - I'm afraid I don't have any RS gear, so I can't supply a .p9x file, sorry)

TinEar, thanks. If there is no Patuxent Tracon then who is the tracon for the norfolk/newport news area?

Mike, I didn't know Patuxent had it's own TRACON either but then ran across a reference to it in the new IFR Supplement. I think it's in the section that describes the three helo operating areas at Pax and the freq assigned to them.

Interesting, Tin. While I'm tearing the Pax page apart, mind sharing that info? You know how to reach me. 73s Mike
